Aerospace and Defense, a fast-changing sector

Aerospace players’ response to economic and environmental challenges is based on greater agility.

The Aerospace and Defense industry is one of Europe’s key high-tech sectors in the global market, supporting more than 865,000 highly skilled (direct) jobs in Europe. It is, as such, an essential part of European mobility, security and defense capabilities, and of Europe’s economy.

This sector is now facing a major revolution. After rushing after production ramp-up, demand becomes more volatile, so that production needs to become more agile. Environmental requirements generate transformation of products, but also “greener” plants. Aerospace & Defense companies will need to develop new sources of revenue and identify new markets. Security is still a critical issue, especially for Defense activities. And of course in a difficult period, costs must be tailored to the current trend, and become more and more competitive.

On top of that, Aerospace industry has heavily and directly been impacted by the COVID-19 crisis resulting in production cuts, supply problems, production delays, aircraft delivery delays and cash-flow problems.
