The global fleet of commercial aircraft is expected to reach nearly 30,000 units by 2021 from 21,494 in 2011, increasing the global demand for commercial aircraft MRO.

As the global economy begins to recover, there are prospects for strong growth within the commercial aircraft MRO market from 2011 and beyond, the report claimed.
