Air traffic has been on a rise in recent times due to the propensity of the people to travel across countries and regions.

Moreover, an inclination towards traveling by flight has consolidated the market within various regions. The deployment of MRO enhances the efficiency of the entire aviation industry by making processes agile. Few of the advantages reaped out by aircraft operators include swifter ticketing, storage of critical information, and management of power. For these reasons, the airlines have embraced MROs within the industry, thus, escalating the demand within the market. Block-chain technology makes the supply chain more efficient, and if market players employ this technology, they could benefit substantially.

Economic Downturn Discourages Investment in Aviation

The financial turbulence being experienced by the world has alleviated the levels of expenditure in the aviation industry. This places a negative toll on the market and results in deficits between demand and supply. However, in order to retain economic stability, regional governments are required to invest in the aviation industry.
