The aerospace industry is changing. A rising middle class in Asia and Africa will mean traffic will double in the coming years. Aircraft OEMs will need to innovate their manufacturing and supply chains to keep in step with the growth. Airlines and airports will need to modify their practices for the evolving customer expectation. New aviation hubs will emerge and governments will need to address advanced and autonomous aircrafts as they become more prevalent in air travel.
The global market situation is resulting in clear technology trends, identified in this report, across the whole of aerospace to anticipate and combat the changes. Many aerospace companies will use the platform of the Dubai Airshow to launch and exhibit their latest innovations to the ever growing important MENA marketplace. These trends are an insight into the future as well as what attendees can expect to see at the airshow when it returns in November to Dubai.
