Aerospace & Defense Suppliers’ Challenging Road

Aerospace & Defense Suppliers' Challenging Road

Top 10 Challenges for Suppliers that Determine Success or Failure

The Aerospace & Defense industry is experiencing significant technological and environmental changes that impact the entire value chain. Aerospace & Defense suppliers must drive cost reduction and ensure higher quality, while also engineering and producing increasingly complex components and systems. To optimize production, they must adopt leaner, more agile, and connected means to improve operational efficiency and respond to demand fluctuations.

Diversifying into new markets is crucial for differentiation and adapting to economic cycles. This puts pressure on suppliers’ innovation capacity and collaboration with new players in Advanced Air Mobility and New Space markets.
