The Aircraft Manufacturing industry hit turbulence over the past five years, largely due to circumstances outside of the industry's control. Disturbances included strikes in overseas manufacturing facilities and extended delays of new aircraft, for which Australian operators provide parts. Exports are primarily sent to the United States (Boeing) and France (Airbus). Australian parts are some of the key features of the Airbus A380 and the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
The industry includes businesses that manufacture aircraft and aircraft engines and frames used for civilian and military purposes. Industry services also include guided missile manufacturing, aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO).
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
