Singapore, a regional aerospace hub

an average yearly rate of 13%, fuelled by the expansion in

the Singapore government’s aspirations to develop it.

Since 1990, Singapore’s aerospace industry has grown at an average yearly rate of 13%, fuelled by the expansion in the aviation sector in the Asia Pacific region and thanks to the Singapore government’s aspirations to develop it. Today, according to EDB’s latest figures, the aerospace industry employs 19,000 people and generates a turnover of S$7.1 billion. Equipped with world-class airport infrastructure, excellent connectivity, a skilled workforce, strong technology base, and a critical mass of aerospace activities, Singapore is uniquely placed to serve as a strategic base for aerospace companies to expand into the Asian markets and beyond.

Not only considered as a hub for passengers and freight, Singapore gained recognition as aerospace hub. The strong base of companies offering a full range of MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul) services for airframe, key systems and components of the aircraft, as well as the strong financial, regulatory and logistics infrastructure here make it suitable for MRO companies to undertake such services, whether in partnership or on their own. Singapore currently accounts for 22% of Asia Pacific’s MRO output.

To assist the expansion of the industry, Singapore government is developing Seletar Aero+sPace Park, a 140 hectare project which will cost around S$60m and should be completed in 2018.

Apart from attracting more aerospace manufacturing projects, Singapore is developing both its Research and Development (R&D) and training and education capabilities. EADS, Pratt & Whitney, and GE have found Singapore to be an attractive location for R&D activities because of the ready availability of talent, a strong intellectual property regime, a cost competitive business environment, and a vibrant research framework.
