1. Overview & Rationale:

The report provides comprehensive analysis as well as holistic assessment of the Strategic Initiatives, Strategic Measures, Business & Strategic Developments and Strategic Activities as well as Moves for Rolls Royce plc for Q1 2014, with specific focus on the aerospace segment, and provides an analysis of how they integrate with & fit into the medium term strategic picture & overall business strategy against the backdrop of an evolving industry landscape & recovering global macroeconomic indicators with the industry reeling under the pressure of significant defense spending cuts across most traditional markets while the commercial aviation sector continues to register strong growth driven by significant growth in air traffic.

2. Industry Overview & Backdrop: Robust Demand for Commercial Aircrafts projected over Medium to Long Term driven by Significant Growth in Air Traffic & Technological Innovations while Budgetary Pressures Impact New Aircraft Acquisitions in the Military Segment:

The commercial aircraft industry segment is being driven globally by growing fleet replacement demand across airliners with significant growth in air traffic besides significant technological innovations being offered by key aircraft engine OEMs that are delivering a much more optimized operating economics with 15%-20% better fuel burn rate and reduced CO2 emissions. The latest engine introductions have in turn been the key demand drivers for latest aircraft programs being introduced by OEMs across the commercial & regional segments respectively, namely, the A320 Neo & the A350XWB aircraft family by Airbus Group and the 737 Max from the Boeing's stable. In the regional segment, the battle amongst Bombardier's C Series & Embraer's E2 Jets intensifies further with the industry moving away from being a traditional duopoly towards oligopoly with the advent of Mitsubishi's MRJ, Sukhoi's SuperJet, Irkut’s MS21 & the COMAC’s Chinese regional airliner. The battle for market share amongst aircraft engine manufacturers too has been equally fierce with Pratt & Whitney's Geared Turbofan Engine (GTF) pitted right against the GE Snecma duo with their CFM56 Jet Engine series while Rolls Royce’s Trent 1000 engine series battles it out with GE’s NX engine series over the Boeing 787 Dreamliner program.

The military aircraft segment, on the other contrary is facing a tougher trajectory with significant defense spending cuts underway across most traditional markets impacting new aircraft acquisitions. The industry OEMs are thus readjusting their strategic focus and deploying an array of strategies & plans to partially offset the ongoing pressure on defense segment which has received a significant boost with the Congressional green light for continued development of the next generation jet engine program with allocations to the tune of $1 billion in the DoD’s FY2015 budget request.

The long-term fundamentals for the commercial, regional, business & military aviation segments, however, remain robust with long-term projections by key industry OEMs & Aircraft manufacturers indicating towards healthy demand growth trend led by the single & twin aisle commercial airliners and the large-cabin, long-range business jets segment besides significant growth in air traffic likely to be registered in the Asia-Pacific region which is projected to account for about 34% of global air traffic through 2032 and will drive growth, especially, for the single aisle passenger aircraft segment with the region projected to receive about 36% of the single aisle passenger aircraft deliveries through 2032.
