There are several factors driving the growth of the Commercial Aircraft market in Singapore. One such factor is the increase in the demand for aircraft parts manufacturing. Rising air passenger traffic is expected to fuel the domestic aircraft parts manufacturing activities in the country. Another major driver in the market is the rising demand for LCCs that leads to higher demand for commercial aircraft in Singapore.
Despite the presence of the growth drivers, the Commercial Aircraft market in Singapore is facing a few challenges. One of the key challenges is heavy reliance on the import of commercial aircraft. There is no company in Singapore that manufactures a complete commercial aircraft, which forces domestic airline companies to rely on the import of commercial aircraft.

Many companies are expanding their current MRO facilities, and some companies are planning to set up new MRO facilities in Singapore. Another trend in the market is the adoption of open skies policy that will improve the growth of MRO services in Singapore.
