Air travel has become more extensive and affordable which has made airline industry unstoppably thrive globally. As world air traffic is geographically reshuffling eastward, Asia-Pacific, with its robust economic growth, will account for 42% of global passenger traffic, with an extra 2.35 billion passengers annually.* Thailand, located at the heart of Southeast Asia with its well-developed infrastructure, is one of the fastest growing aviation markets in Asia-Pacific with IATA forecast estimated that the country will welcome 116 million new passengers for a total of 214 million by 2037.
The increase in passenger traffic will subsequently lead to rising new aircraft fleets as, in Asia-pacific, they are estimated to triple from 6,000 to 17,000 by 2036.** This will undoubtedly come with the need for engineering services especially maintenance, repair, and overhaul. To gear up for these upcoming opportunities, Thailand has been establishing itself to be an aerospace hub and the center of MRO (Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul) services through the expansion of U-Tapao International Airport as part of the EECa (Eastern Economic Corridor of Aerotropolis) project, along with a wide range of incentives to attract investors and facilitate the growth of regional aerospace industry.
Owing to the aforementioned factors, the MRO sector will be prospering and it will bring along a huge demand for aerospace parts and components in the coming years. Thailand is in a strong position to build on its existing advantages, be it strong business climate, attractive incentives, strategic location, or availability of skilled workforce. To respond to the need of advanced and complex production, the utilization of high-precision technologies is vitally important, and METALEX will take center stage to serve those technology needs.
