Top 5 Suppliers of Maintenance, Repair, and Operations Services from 2016-2020: Technavio

LONDON--()--Technavio announces the top five leading suppliers in the global maintenance, repair, and operations (MRO) services market until 2020. These suppliers are selected based on their ability to provide one-stop solutions while ensuring timely delivery of MRO products with strict adherence to client specifications.

Competitive market landscape

The MRO market is fragmented and suppliers are operating in a highly competitive environment, which compels them to differentiate themselves from the competition by providing services at short notice and at competitive prices. However, the industry is witnessing consolidation due to an increase in demand for integrated service providers. Suppliers are involved in mergers and acquisitions to enhance service portfolios and become one-stop solutions, as well as to expand their geographical presence. Suppliers are enhancing their portfolios inorganically so that they can offer after-sales maintenance services and one-stop solutions to buyers.
