Allegheny, in its last earnings call, stated that it expects continued recovery in the jet engine market in the third quarter. The recovery is expected to be driven by increasing narrow body aircraft production rates as well as strength in the energy and electronics end markets.

The company anticipates lingering effects on its SRP business, with production levels returning to pre-strike levels through the rest of the third quarter. Despite this challenge in the near term, the global economic recovery is gradually expanding and providing optimism for its most impactful end markets, Allegheny noted.
