What are the market dynamics in the global aerospace, defence, and security sector?

In the last 20 years, unmanned aircraft vehicles (UAVs), commonly called drones, have been rapidly adopted in many sectors, both in the civil and defence fields. They are used in several naval, land, and littoral operations, especially for intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) due to their low operating cost, versatile and long-term endurance, and ability to be used safely in dangerous areas. Hence, countries across the globe are investing in the procurement, research, and development of UAVs.​ Drones have the potential to be used as force multipliers in many areas of operations, with their modular structures and ability to carry many different payloads.​

Space systems encompass satellites and subsystems. Timely, accurate intelligence and communication are essential for military operations. The space economy has previously been restricted to satellites and their sub-systems. However, the increasing cost-effectiveness has made space a new frontier.  The future space economy will consist of satellites, space debris, space mining, space exploration, space tourism, and space infrastructure manufacturing. Satellites will provide up to 70% of the space economy’s growth in the near term, facilitated mainly by the widespread adoption of reusable launches. This burgeoning sector will disrupt many industries, from internet provision to mining and construction.

Which are the key regions in terms of M&A deal activity in the global aerospace, defence, and security sector?

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.
