Thales Competitive Market

Frost & Sullivan anticipates that Thales will continue to enhance its security capability by adding new products to its expanding portfolio, with an increasing focus on the provision of cyber security solutions. New products will increasingly focus on the commercial over the military market although much of the technology utilized by the company has its roots in dual-use technology research. The growth of the company’s security business will rest on the successful inclusion of systems on mass transit and safe city projects.

Key Findings
-Thales retains a strong position in the security market and is well placed to win further security contracts based on its ability to deliver turnkey projects such as the Santiago Metro.
-The company’s strengths lie in the production of tailor-made solutions (because of its high R&D spending) and large-scale integration, as in its extensive global work on mass transit projects.
-Thales has a market-leading position in Europe, with plans for further growth in the Latin American, North American, and Asian markets on the back of successful projects in Mexico and Saudi Arabia.
-The company continues to create effective partnerships to develop and use its security offering, illustrated by recent agreements with Nokia Siemens Network and Schneider Electric.
-While the company’s security wing remains highly successful, winning multiple contracts, it is still trying to deal with the global reduction in military spending and its effect on Thales’ defence interests.
-In recent years, Thales has been most successful in supplying cyber solutions and mass transport systems to many organizations and countries.
-The company may soon place more focus on its security operations, as military spending is predicted to continue declining.

Key Corporate Strategies
-Innovations and R&D spending to drive sales.
-Spending primarily in defence but also in security.
-Increasing focus on the civil security industry to provide future profits.
-Engagement with key end users to create products and systems that meet future security threats.
