14 Industry and Analysis’ Spotlight on Aerospace July 16, 2013Prepared byOffice of Transportation and Machinery
15 Aerospace The aerospace industry includes: Large Civil Aircraft (e.g. Boeing 737)Business JetsGeneral Aviation Aircraft (including helicopters)Aircraft EnginesCommercial Satellites and LaunchesUnmanned Aerial SystemsAerospace PartsAerospace Products and Equipment (e.g. NextGen Air Traffic Management)
16 NEI Priority Markets: (Figures based on Year-End 2012) U.S. Aerospace Exports to Target Markets(“Green Box” Countries)European Union $33.2 BGCC * $12.2 BChina $9.1 BJapan $9.0 BBrazil $6.8 BCanada $6.6 BKorea $3.9 BTurkey $2.0 BRussia $1.7 BIndia $1.5 BSouth Africa $534 M*Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and UAESource: U.S. Census Bureau
17 OpportunitiesIn general, U.S. aerospace manufacturers see continued global growth for their products. Looking ahead over the next 20 years, Boeing sees demand for 35,280 new airplanes, valued at $4.8 trillion (at list prices).Growing markets like China, India and Latin America show promise for increased exports:AircraftSpare partsMaintenance servicesFlight simulatorsAirport equipment, including air traffic managementU.S. manufacturers are world leading producers of new technologies:Unmanned systemsGreen technologiesCompositesNextGen Air Traffic ManagementCommunication and imaging satellitesReform of U.S. export control laws simplifies the process for U.S. companies to export many products that were previously on the more strictly controlled ITAR list.
18 Risks and IssuesForeign governments seeking to create/bolster their domestic industries create programs to subsidize their manufacturers.Foreign governments also create OECD-inconsistent programs to finance their aerospace exports.The aerospace industry is highly regulated both in the United States and abroad. Fees in foreign markets can be an issue.Many of the fastest growing markets rate poorly on ease-of-doing business rankings.Many sales campaigns and infrastructure projects may take years to come to fruition.Investment in the domestic market may be necessary to win a sale (may be mandated offsets or just local business practice).U.S. products are expensive (but high quality) (e.g. easier to buy 1 non-U.S. produced helicopter a year than 1 U.S. helicopter that will last 10 years).
