2023 AlixPartners Aerospace, Defense and Aviation Outlook
A TIME FOR PROACTIVITY
The Aerospace, Defense, & Aviation industry faces a very steep ramp-up. Conflict in Ukraine, post-COVID demand for aircraft and equipment, and disruption in space drive a strong revenue outlook. But the race to seize opportunity has its share of hurdles: the war for talent, supply chain kinks, production ramp-up, high borrowing costs, and finally ESG concerns threaten to knock business plans off course. Only the most proactive players will thrive.
The AlixPartners Global Aerospace, Defense, & Aviation Outlook provides summaries, insights, and challenges for specific sectors of the overall industry. Even though the pandemic has passed, now is not the time to take a breather. Overcoming the challenges ahead requires mastery of multiple operational and financial improvements.

"It’s time to stop just ‘fighting fires’ and instead to put in place systems—including production systems, workforce systems and cost-control systems—that are both robust and flexible."
“The defense industry needs to become a whole lot more agile in order to meet today’s rapid, and unpredictable increases in production volume. Today’s uncertain geopolitics demand nothing less than that.”
