Aerospace and Defense Predictions – Top Themes

The top themes analyzed in the report are:

  • Advanced Materials
  • Alternative Propulsion
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Counter-Drone Technologies
  • Geopolitics
  • Hypersonic Technologies
  • The Internet of Military Things (IoMT)
  • Robotics / Unmanned Systems
  • Soldier Modernization
  • Space Systems

Advanced Materials: Investment from various sources, including the defense industry has yielded innovations such as new materials and processing techniques and has provided chances for practical applications for advanced materials (AdMs). This has aided in the steady growth of the global market for advanced materials over the past decade. Innovations in material science and engineering drove the integration of additive manufacturing techniques throughout various defense-related sub-markets. Meanwhile, investment in the medical domain has enabled the growth of the bio-monitoring smart textiles market with parallel applications in the defense PPE market.

Alternative Propulsion: Recent advances in batteries, electric motors, and composite materials have not only made the development of electric aircraft increasingly viable but also a reality in many cases. Lithium-ion batteries can offer a great enough specific energy to allow electric aircraft to compete with conventionally powered aircraft in many sectors. The benefits and applications of electric aircraft are diverse, ranging from cleaner commercial aviation to air taxis, high-speed broadband enablers, and space launch systems. However, the MRO (Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul) industry within the aerospace sector will be most affected by the electric aircraft. As airlines start using more advanced and fuel-efficient aircraft, MRO companies and service providers will need to adapt as these next-generation aircraft and the whole industry advance alongside new technological developments.

Artificial Intelligence: Rapid progress in AI has made it a key battleground technology for countries such as the US and China, who have each enacted policies to limit the other’s access to materials and technology associated with AI research and development (R&D). Additionally, with the evolution of AI capabilities, it is becoming a tool for both protecting against cyberattacks and launching them. Securing systems against such attacks is critical as breaches can offer attackers access to vast amounts of data placing military operations at risk. An AI-enabled defensive approach allows cyber teams to stay ahead of the threat as machine learning (ML) technology improves the speed and efficacy of both threat detection and response.

See what our customers are saying

“The GlobalData platform is our go-to tool for intelligence services. GlobalData provides an easy way to access comprehensive intelligence data around multiple sectors, which essentially makes it a one-for-all intelligence platform, for tendering and approaching customers.

GlobalData is very customer orientated, with a high degree of personalised services, which benefits everyday use. The highly detailed project intelligence and forecast reports can be utilised across multiple departments and workflow scopes, from operational to strategic level, and often support strategic decisions. GlobalData Analytics and visualisation solutions has contributed positively when preparing management presentations and strategic papers.”

Business Intelligence & Marketing Manager, SAL Heavy Lift

“COVID-19 has caused significant interference to our business and the COVID-19 intelligence from GlobalData has helped us reach better decisions around strategy. These two highlights have helped enormously to understand the projections into the future concerning our business units, we also utilise the project database to source new projects for Liebherr-Werk to use as an additional source to pitch for new business.”

Market Analyst & Management, Liebherr-Werk

Your daily news has saved me a lot of time and keeps me up-to-date with what is happening in the market, I like that you almost always have a link to the source origin. We also use your market data in our Strategic Business Process to support our business decisions. By having everything in one place on the Intelligence Center it has saved me a lot of time versus looking on different sources, the alert function also helps with this.

Head of Key Accounts, Saab AB

Having used several other market research companies, I find that GlobalData manages to provide that ‘difficult-to-get’ market data that others can’t, as well as very diverse and complete consumer surveys.

Marketing Intelligence Manager, Portugal Foods

Our experience with GlobalData has been very good, from the platform itself to the people. I find that the analysts and the account team have a high level of customer focus and responsiveness and therefore I can always rely on. The platform is more holistic than other providers. It is convenient and almost like a one stop shop. The pricing suite is highly competitive and value for our organisation.

I like reports that inform new segments such as the analysis on generation Z, millennials, the impact of COVID 19 to our banking customers and their new channel habits. Secondly the specialist insight on affluent sector significantly increases our understanding about this group of customers. The combination of those give us depth and breadth of the evolving market.

I’m in the business of answering and helping people make decisions so with the intelligence center I can do that, effectively and efficiently. I can share quickly key insights that answer and satisfy our country stakeholders by giving them many quality studies and primary research about competitive landscape beyond the outlook of our bank. It helps me be seen as an advisory partner and that makes a big difference. A big benefit of our subscription is that no one holds the whole data and because it allows so many people, so many different parts of our organisation have access, it enables all teams to have the same level of knowledge and decision support.

Head of Customer Insight and Research, Standard Chartered

“I know that I can always rely on Globaldata’s work when I’m searching for the right consumer and market insights. I use Globaldata insights to understand the changing market & consumer landscape and help create better taste & wellbeing solutions for our customers in food, beverage and healthcare industries.

Globaldata has the right data and the reports are of very high quality compared to your competitors. Globaldata not only has overall market sizes & consumer insights on food & beverages but also provides insights at the ingredient & flavour level. That is key for B2B companies like Givaudan. This way we understand our customers’ business and also gain insight to our unique industry”

Head of Consumer Sensory Insights, Givaudan

GlobalData provides a great range of information and reports on various sectors that is highly relevant, timely, easy to access and utilise.  The reports and data dashboards help engagement with clients; they provide valuable industry and market insights that can enrich client conversations and can help in the shaping of value propositions. Moreover, using GlobalData products has helped increase my knowledge of the finance sector, the players within it, and the general threats and opportunities.

I find the consumer surveys that are carried out to be extremely beneficial and not something I have seen anywhere else. They provided an insightful view of why and which consumers take (or don’t) particular financial products. This can help shape conversations with clients to ensure they make the right strategic decisions for their business.

One of the challenges I have found is that data in the payments space is often piecemeal. With GD all of the data I need is in one place, but it also comes with additional market reports that provide useful extra context and information. Having the ability to set-up alerts on relevant movements in the industry, be it competitors or customers, and have them emailed directly to me, ensures I get early sight of industry activity and don’t have to search for news.
