The Aerospace & Defense industry continues to be transformed in an era that is characterized by disruptive and emerging trends such as emerging markets, technology advancements and digitalization, innovation, consumer spending, and more. With these mega trends in mind, aerospace and defense companies need to adapt and respond quicker than ever.

New emerging markets are looking more attractive due to increased political risks such as export-control regulations, offset and technology-transfer requirements, and intellectual-property issues.

Digitalization is posing a threat due to increased fraught and uncertainty through cyber attacks. But that also prompts new business opportunities through increasing cyber security.

Consumer demand is changing as well. Customer spending is shifting from procuring high performance systems to more affordable systems. Customers also are more environmentally aware, and therefore are demanding greater fuel efficiency and alternative fuel options. Aerospace and defense companies will be forced to adapt to this green trend in order to meet the needs of both consumer demand, and the increased national and geopolitical policy complexity and regulations surrounding it.
