The global aircraft dismantling market will be worth $80m in 2014, according to a new report by consultancy TeamSAI. The research was conducted in partnership with the Aircraft Fleet Recycling Association (AFRA). Industry operators expect between 1,200 and 1,800 aircraft to be dismantled over the next three years. TeamSAI also reports that around $3.2bn in spare parts will be available annually, with savings worth 50 per cent over new OEM parts. Martin Fraissignes, AFRA’s executive director, said: “As our sector grows, it is increasingly clear that it is not just about having enough dismantling and recycling capacity, it must be the right capacity.” The study was based on 36 of AFRA’s 74 members.
