According to the Society of Indian Aerospace Technologies & Industries, the India needs civil aircraft is worth USD 20 billion in next ten years. Airport infra-structure worth USD 3.5 billion required during the current decade, whereas the maintenance market including spares currently is estimated to be at USD 100 million annually.
