The spread of COVID-19 has severely impacted the market growth. Due to the shutdown of factories caused by fear of infection, the supply chain was negatively affected, which resulted in the difficulty of parts procurement by vendors.

Key Market Trends

Manufacturing Sector Under Industrial MRO to Occupy Significant Market Share

  • The pressure to reduce cost and product quality have been the major driving factor for the adoption of industrial MRO services in the manufacturing industry in this region. With manufacturers continuously seeking large profit margins, they aim to maximize return on net assets (RONA).
  • The downtime involved in the production process is quite expensive. Investment in MROs is helping manufacturing industries achieve consistency in production and reduce the length of downtime in the production process. For instance, Volkswagen is actively using MRO services for its manufacturing units in China.
  • Manufacturers are optimizing their facilities and production processes to reduce their overall energy consumption due to government regulations. This is being done by manufacturers conducting lifecycle assessments of their products and deploying the required MRO service, to practice lean manufacturing.
  • Manufacturing activities have witnessed exponential growth over the globe, especially in the APAC region. This is because the governments are introducing several programs and policies that encourage manufacturing activity.

Asia-Pacific Expected to Register the Highest Growth

  • Asia-Pacific region is slowly seeing an increase in the adoption of professional services and is considered to be a major manufacturing hub for spare parts which are supplied to different countries.
  • Moreover, rising standardization of equipment and services in critical manufacturing operations is likely to boost the market growth. The development of advanced manufacturing techniques in the region due to high investment in R&D activities is estimated to fuel market growth.
  • Moreover, due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, the major companies are planning to move their operations outside China to neighboring countries like India and Taiwan. This is expected to drive the growth of the market in the region.
