1. Overview:

The report provides an insightful SWOT Framework Analysis of the Global Defense & Aerospace industry amid the difficult defense budgetary environment & a difficult global macroeconomic environment. The framework generates a snapshot of the industry’s inherent strengths & weaknesses as part of the internal environment assessment and outlines potential growth opportunities as well as threats as part of the external environmental assessment.

2. Backdrop:

Global Defense Industry under Pressure amid High Magnitude Defense Budget Cuts while the General Aviation makes steady recovery & Commercial Aviation on Growth Trajectory:-

The allied operations & campaigns across Iraq & Afghanistan war theatres under Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom post 9/11 drove the growth of defense industrial base across North America & Western Europe. However, with the winding up of allied operations and the scheduled withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan through 2014, ongoing spate of defense spending cuts & absence of any significant external threat; the activity across almost all key North American OEMs has been dropping with pressure on top-line across industry OEMs with a significant rise in competitive intensity for new defense contract awards as cost competitiveness over hardware’s operating life-cycle becomes a critical & decisive parameter.

The industry landscape has been evolving with the shifting of global dynamics and under the pressure of significant defense spending cuts across most traditional markets. The industry has already started treading on the consolidation path as highlighted by the recent spike in M&A activity across industry amid a difficult & uncertain global macroeconomic environment marked by slow pace of ongoing recovery in Western Europe from the debt crisis and a multitude of economic challenges in the United States.

The global defense industry, thus, currently is juxtaposed between rapidly rising technological capabilities and the deteriorating overall economic conditions to sustain & support the same. The fallout has been evident and has been along the anticipated lines, in the form of cancellations & restructuring of a number of major, key defense programs amid an ongoing spate of budgetary cuts. The overall outlook for the industry is contractionary over medium term with most OEMs working towards implementing an array of strategies and plans aimed at partially offsetting the ongoing spending cuts revolving around:

-Rationalization & Optimization of overall Cost Base & Industrial Footprint
-Growing Focus on International Exports
-Strategic Business Portfolio Realignment with focus on Commercial Segments & Growth Domains
-Technological Innovations aimed at Stimulating Replacement demand

The industry has responded tremendously & adapted well to the difficult budgetary scenario and most industry OEMs have been able to boost profitability through restructuring of their industrial base despite pressure on topline and have been able to realign overall business portfolio leveraging strong cash positions. The General Aviation industry on the other hand has been making steady recovery with an improving global macroeconomic environment while the Commercial Aviation industry has been on strong growth trajectory driven by technological evolution and strong demand growth emanating from emerging markets.
