Table of Contents

Key Findings

•Airbus Defence & Space is increasingly focused on enhancing its presence in the security market. Its ability to deliver large-scale, complex projects, and its growing portfolio of successfully implemented solutions, means that it is well-positioned in this growth market.
•The company’s core strength is in delivering secure communications together with command and control solutions to governments and large private organizations globally.
•Airbus has a strong market position in Europe, but it has also seen success in marketing its security solutions in other regions—particularly the Middle East and Asia-Pacific.
•Partnerships and the use of local partners will be pivotal in both accessing non-traditional markets and filling security-specific capability gaps in this competitive market.
•The company’s historical focus on the military and defence markets means that it is still adjusting to the European reduction in military spending, making a more security-centric business model necessary.
•Airbus continues to divest non-core businesses—including its recent plan to divest its non-military communications businesses—to focus on the delivery of military aircraft, satellites, and missile systems.
•As the security market grows, Airbus will continue to develop and expand its security- centric business lines to ensure market competitiveness.

Key Corporate Strategies

•Airbus is increasingly focused on the provision of security products and solutions for the civil market, which has seen an increase in revenue over the last x years.
•The company has strategic relationships with governments and organisations throughout the world, resulting in a wide customer base.
