Defence & Aerospace

The global Aerospace sector has experienced phenomenal growth since the turn of the century, with sustained increases in turnover, employment, R&D, and investment all contributing to the ongoing success of the UK sector.

Flexible and forward thinking, the industry has always been highly adaptable, particularly in response to the recent challenges of Covid that has seen a re-shaping of the sector. This has also resulted in an acceleration of new technologies and investment channels as companies pursue competitive advancement.

Of particular note is the surge in development in electrification and alternative green fuels along with further advances in material development and design, coupled with ever more agile and lean manufacturing processes as digitalisation begins to take hold.
