The Global Aerospace & Defense industry at present is juxtaposed between strong tailwinds driving tremendous growth momentum in the commercial aerospace segment and continued headwinds in the defense segment, witnessing a cyclical downswing marked by defense budgetary cuts underway across most traditional markets. The global aerospace & defense industry & most industry players are, thus, in the process of harnessing the alternate cyclicality of the commercial & defense segments effectively to partially offset the ongoing slump in the defense segment by leveraging the commercial segment’s growth momentum while preserving the core competencies & capabilities of their defense businesses through maintenance of an optimized defense industrial base, in line with the prevailing industry vicissitudes and to navigate their way through. The commercial aviation segment continues to witness tremendous growth driven by the convergence of strong, long-term growth drivers and a technological leap with the emergence & rapid commercialization of next generation propulsion & other aerospace technologies that has transpired into record order backlogs for latest commercial aircrafts across airframers & engine manufacturers.

The defense segment, on the contrary, faces the paradox of rapidly advancing technological capabilities with limited funding to support & sustain their development & commercialization costs. The industry, thus, has witnessed fastidious budget allocation of-late across the U.S. & Europe based on strategic significance of programs, capabilities & technologies in the overall force structure and contextual analysis with the emerging threat scenario. Some key, big ticket programs have received congressional green light of-late in the U.S., especially, the next generation bomber & engine programs, despite continued budgetary pressures. However, preference has been growing for low-risk, in-production platforms, instead of scratch up programs. Further, global industry dynamics are witnessing significant changes with growing share of China, Saudi Arabia & Russia in the Annual Global Defense Spending with China & Russia projected to overtake EU in terms of defense spending by 2015 while China's defense budget alone is estimated to be larger than France, U.K. & Germany combined by 2015. Further, a number of nations based in the Middle East region continue to register significant growth rate with respect to defense spending, led by Oman & Saudi Arabia. Additionally, the Ukraine crisis has triggered concerns with respect to defense capabilities & has heightened threat perception amongst a number of European states, based in Northern & Eastern Europe, led by Poland & Norway, which are focusing on building up military capabilities rapidly to counter growing Russian threat in the region which is likely to drive an increase in defense spending across Northern & Eastern Europe over near term. Russia's defense budget is projected to grow to 4% of its GDP by 2016 while defense budgets across other key nations based in the Asia-Pacific & Middle East regions, too, continue to witness significant growth presenting potential growth opportunities to leading global industry players. Additionally, the U.S. is contemplating plans to increase OCO funding to counter growing ISIL menace in Iraq alongwith European allies which is likely to translate into an increase in activity for the U.S. defense industrial base. Further, the United States is also likely to undertake a comprehensive review of its military footprint & deployment strategy in Europe as part of its FY2016 budget request preparation activities amid growing Russian threat which is likely to shape U.S. regional strategy over medium term.

Most industry OEMs are in the process of restructuring their portfolios with focus on reinforcing commercial businesses to match emerging industry dynamics & realigning defense businesses with emerging budgetary scenario across segments while simultaneously optimizing their overall industrial footprint & cost base by leveraging operating, financial, resource & market synergies across their defense & commercial businesses effectively. Additionally, growing international exports as well as market presence & upgrading existing in-service hardware & systems with latest technologies delivering enhanced performance capabilities as well as reduced operational costs are amongst other key strategies being pursued by industry players.
