Aerospace & Defense
Companies in the aerospace & defense industry manufacture aircraft, aircraft components, weapons, missiles and space vehicles.
Top countries for aerospace products and parts manufacturing include Canada, France, the UK, and the US. North America and Europe are the largest markets for aerospace products, but emerging economies in the Asia/Pacific region are expected to provide the greatest growth opportunities. Global aerospace and defense revenue is forecast to rise nearly 8% in 2019 and about 5% in 2020, according to S&P Global. Aerospace and defense revenue is expected to be driven by increased commercial aircraft production and rising defense spending in the US and Europe.
The US aerospace products and parts manufacturing industry includes about 1,800 establishments (single-location companies and units of multi-location companies) with combined annual revenue of about $245 billion.
