The Aerospace and Defence manufacturing sector is undergoing considerable change as businesses adjust to reduced defence budgets in the US and Europe, whilst military budgets are growing in countries where western companies have little exposure. There is compensation on the civil side. The production of passenger jets is continuing to rise, due to demand for lighter and more fuel efficient aircraft in both the US and Asian markets. With large order book back-logs, the established multinationals are concerned about the capacity of their supply-chain to increase production. There are opportunities for talented leaders of smaller companies to invest and collaborate in new ways, to gain access to these international programmes.
The Security sector can be defined as surveillance and tracking, sensors and detectors, systems integration, information and cyber security, risk management, and the provision of physical security. The UK remains a major exporter of physical security. Cyber security is a dynamic market which continues to receive heightened and growing attention, reflecting the scale of on-line threats to commercial businesses.
