Infrastructural needs at the speed of aeronautics
Considering the dynamism and fast growth of the aeronautics sector, infrastructures used in the sector need to respond at the same speed.
Traditional constructions are associated with a high cost and long implementation times, which can turn into a competitivity loss for the final user, as it cannot cover the market’s needs.
The high growth in the Asian market due to a substantial demand increase by airlines creates the need of the sector to adapt with larger and more autonomous aircrafts, following the example of the recent launch of the Airbus A321 NEO and the Boeing B747.
The innovation in the aeronautics sector and the increase in the concentration of market agents are giving rise to stronger entry barriers. Companies are expanding their infrastructures in order to cover the increasing demand. However, can it be said that infrastructures are evolving at the same speed as the aeronautics sector?
In general, a company’s investment in MRO facilities is characterized for being long term and having high fixed and variable costs. Therefore, it is important to reduce them with a greater efficiency.
However, some companies are developing infrastructures that are capable of keeping up with the speed of the sector, as well as providing the opportunity to get the return of investment back thanks to the relocatable capacity of the building for future uses.
In addition, considering the strong competition and the importance of reaching a greater competitive advantage, hangars’ assembly times have been drastically reduced.
Moreover, there are other characteristics that define this new technology. First, being high energy efficient and possessing fast-opening hangar doors are key factors. And also, companies are looking for an optimized interior design for maintenance tasks and the capacity to store widebody aircrafts.
