The global aerospace & defense industry is currently juxtaposed between strong tailwinds driving tremendous growth momentum in the commercial aerospace segment; currently experiencing its second golden age, and continued headwinds in the defense segment; which is witnessing a cyclical downswing marked by defense budgetary cuts underway across most traditional markets. The global aerospace & defense industry & most industry players are, thus, in the process of harnessing the alternate cyclicality of the commercial & defense segments effectively to partially offset the ongoing slump in the defense segment by leveraging the commercial segment’s growth momentum while preserving the core competencies & capabilities of their defense businesses through maintenance of an optimized defense industrial base, in line with the prevailing industry vicissitudes and to navigate their way through.

The Defense segment, too, has some niche windows of growth opportunities available, created, mostly by technological evolutions & radical innovations being pursued & delivered by the industry value chain driving the generational leap in strategic as well as operational capabilities while providing significant incentive through optimized operating economics for the impending need for replacement of legacy, cold war era systems & hardware, as evinced by the recent state of developments over the JMR-FVL (Joint Multi-Role, Future Vertical Lift), JLTV (Joint Light Tactical Vehicles) & the Next Generation, Strategic Bomber programs respectively and the emergence of the recent, self-funded developmental programs by OEMs. Additionally, the Ukraine crisis & Russian military intervention in Syria has triggered concerns with respect to defense capabilities & has heightened threat perception amongst a number of European states, based in Northern & Eastern Europe which are focusing on building up military capabilities rapidly to counter growing Russian threat in the region which is likely to drive an increase in defense spending across Northern & Eastern Europe over near term. Defense budgets across other key nations based in the Asia-Pacific & Middle East regions, too, continue to witness significant growth presenting potential growth opportunities to leading global industry players.
