Global Aerospace and Defense Industry Report 2018 with Insights into the Airbus / Boeing Rivalry

(MENAFN - EIN) / EIN News / -- Dublin, Nov. 23, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Analyzing the Global Aerospace and Defense Industry 2018" report has been added to's offering.

This report on Analyzing the Global Aerospace and Defense Industry 2018 is precisely aimed at bringing an understanding of this wide and vast industry which at times enjoys the distinction of being one of the few recession proof industries.

The year 2017 witnessed the recovery of the global aerospace and defense industry worldwide, though the industry still lagged behind other industries in terms of the global GDP (gross domestic product). Revenues of the global aerospace and defense industry crossed US$686 billion by the end of 2017, though the overall growth of the sector was still weaker as compared to 2016. This decline the industry underwent was primarily due to the slowdown of the delivery of twin-aisle aircraft in the United States. While the commercial aerospace sector in Europe experienced strong growth, the same sector in the United States remained weak. Europe also saw a higher number of aircraft deliveries during 2017 as compared to the US.

Meanwhile, the global defense industry recorded a jump of 4% as worldwide governments increased their spending on defense. By the end of 2017, the global defense industry posted revenues of more than US$ 362 billion. The US was the biggest contributor to this as 2017 saw the US Department of Defense increase it's funding for the defense sector. Compared to the US, the defense sector in Europe witnessed a growth of 2.5% in 2017. The European defense sector grew due to the pressure from the present US administration on NATO countries for increasing their expenditure on the military.

The global aerospace and defense industry also witnessed an improvement in the operating margins in 2017 as compared to 2016. This improvement was also led by the US aerospace and defense industry, which experienced a growth of nearly 13%. The global industry further got a boost from the incredibly strong core operating earnings at The Boeing Company.

The report takes an integrated approach towards both the segments of global Aerospace and Defense. This in-depth report on the Global Aerospace and Defense Industry begins with an introduction to the industry.
