Aerospace Company Risks

Goals

Gain an understanding of the top global political and economic risks for mid-sized and large U.S. based aerospace companies operating internationally, as well as what geographic areas have the highest demands, regional developments and key opportunities in the space

Early Findings

Key Challenges

  • Shifts in international trade agreements are expected, and may increase cost of production and disruptions to the global supply chain.
  • Accelerated innovation has significantly decreased the barrier to entry into the aerospace market, which has added competitive pressure.
  • New startups are creating an increased need for innovation, especially as they reinvent short-range transportation options for regional air travel.

Key Opportunities

Competitive Edge

  • Given rapid innovation in the aerospace industry globally, keeping a competitive edge is most important for international participation.
  • It's noted that in order to maintain a competitive edge in international markets, a company must understand what the focus is in each area, as it varies widely by region.

Geographic Regions

  • The global aerospace industry is led by the US, with other leading regions including China, France, India, Japan, the Middle East, and the UK.
  • China and India are the two countries with the most rapid growth of their aerospace programs.
  • By 2030, China is projected to have aerospace division that is only smaller than the US.
