The global aircraft recycling market is expected to grow from $4.37 billion in 2022 to $4.74 billion in 2023 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.7%. The Russia-Ukraine war disrupted the chances of global economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, at least in the short term. The war between these two countries has led to economic sanctions on multiple countries, a surge in commodity prices, and supply chain disruptions, causing inflation across goods and services and affecting many markets across the globe. The aircraft recycling market is expected to reach $6.42 billion in 2027 at a CAGR of 7.8%.

The aircraft recycling market includes revenues earned by entities by providing services such as scrapping and disassembling retired aircraft, re-purposing their parts as spare parts, or scrap, non-destructive dismantling.The market value includes the value of related goods sold by the service provider or included within the service offering.

Aircraft recycling refers to aircraft dismantling or aircraft disassembly. Aircraft recycling is the process of disassembling a decommissioned aircraft and recovering its components and materials for reuse or recycling.

North America was the largest region in the aircraft recycling market in 2022. The regions covered in the aircraft recycling market report are Asia-Pacific, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, North America, South America, Middle East and Africa.

The main products of aircraft recycling are engines, landing gear, and avionics.Engines are among the most valuable components derived from aircraft recycling.

Once an aircraft is decommissioned, its engines are frequently in good condition and can be repaired, upgraded, or sold for use in other planes.The materials in recycling are aluminum and other metals and alloys.

The aircrafts types in aircraft recycling are narrow-body, wide-body, and regional aircraft.

The increase in retired and worn-out aircraft is projected to expand the growth of the aerospace recycling market going forward.Planes that have reached the end of their useful lives or have become too expensive to maintain and operate are classified as retired or worn-out.

Through recycling, the most valuable components such as engines and parts can be reused, which provides for the profitability of recycling operations.For instance, the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), a Canada-based specialized agency of the United Nations estimated that every year, around 600–1000 commercial aircraft are retired worldwide.

ICAO and Airbus projected that there could be 15,000 retired aircraft by 2040. Therefore, the increase in retired and worn-out aircraft is driving the growth of the aircraft recycling market.

Sustainable aircraft recycling services are a key trend gaining popularity in the aircraft recycling market.Major companies operating in the aircraft recycling market are developing sustainable aircraft recycling services to strengthen their position in the market.

For instance, in January 2022, Airbus, a France-based aerospace company signed a Memorandum Of Understanding (MOU) with the city of Chengdu and Tarmac Aerosave, a France-based aerospace company for the development of a sustainable aircraft lifecycle service center in China. This agreement allows aircraft parking, maintenance, storage, conversions, upgrades, recycling services, and dismantling for different aircraft.

In August 2020, Baird Capital, a US-based private equity and venture capital firm of Robert W.Baird & Co.

Inc., acquired eCube Solutions Ltd. for an undisclosed amount.
