A major focus in the global aerospace market is the ongoing business model transformation of aircraft OEMs. Taking advantage of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and data platform technologies, aircraft OEMs are moving away from selling airframes, systems, and components, and towards delivering maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services as well as digital solutions.
Frost & Sullivan’s Aerospace Research Program
Our team of analysts combine their global network of relationships with key industry players and their deep understanding of industry best practices, gaps, and areas for improvement to help clients not only identify emerging growth opportunities but also leverage them.
The aerospace industry is witnessing transformational changes, driven by an unprecedented growth in aircraft production rates. Aircraft integrators put pressure on OEMs and challenge their business models, by investing in their own production capabilities, across avionics, cabin interiors and actuation systems. At the same time new competitors from emerging markets and adjacent industries are looking to take advantage of OE growth opportunities and an attractive aerospace aftermarket.
In this environment, new technologies and innovative products are also having a significant impact on the supply chain. Integrated data platforms are using advanced analytics to make sense of aircraft operational data. Artificial Intelligence is also used in predicting operational performance and component failures, reducing disruptions and improving reliability.
Frost & Sullivan’s Aerospace Research Team helps clients understand the challenges and opportunities created by such widespread transformation.
