The jet engine is an integral part of the commercial aircraft and is a determining factor behind aircraft selection by all airlines. The report Global Commercial Aircraft Gas Turbine Engine Market 2013 - 2023 forecasts that the global commercial aircraft gas turbine engine market in 2013 will reach $24.6bn.
Whilst deregulation has altered the make up of the wider aviation industry, this is not the case within the commercial aircraft gas turbine engine market. The industry is still heavily concentrated on three main companies - GE Aviation, Pratt & Whitney and Rolls Royce, coupled with a few joint venture partnerships that deal with specific engine programmes. High barriers to entry, the importance placed on establishing a reputation for quality, and considerable sums earned from after sales services mean that this market structure for new jet engines is unlikely to change.
The commercial aircraft gas turbine engine market is largely reflective of prevailing global macro economic conditions and also trends within the overall aviation industry. Given that demand for air travel is set to see a surge, particularly from emerging regional markets, suppliers and manufacturers of aircraft engines should see considerable opportunities for growth over the next ten years.
