From an aftermarket perspective the first three quarters of 2016 were down significantly (perhaps as much as 35%), with a slight rebound in the fourth quarter as urgent maintenance activity could no longer be delayed.
As with new unit projections for 2017, a slight improvement for aftermarket activity is anticipated in the new year.
Overall, expect approximately 2100 planned maintenance outages in 2017, an increase of 3% over 2016.
Naturally some gas turbine models will have much greater outage additions than others, due to delays in 2015/16 maintenance activity and other market dynamics.
A detailed, model-by-model view of the aftermarket projects approximately 750 aeroderivative maintenance outages, 740 heavy-duty, and 610 light industrial outages.
In total, over $240 billion in aftermarket activity is projected over the next ten years.
