Industry: Aerospace & Defense
Boeing (BA) is the largest aerospace company in the world, exhibited by over 10,000 commercial jetliners (approx. 67% of revenue) currently in service and being a major player in the defense, space, and security industry (approx. 33% of revenue). The company is the single largest exporter from the United States.
It’s commercial jets and defense, space, and security systems are sold to more than 150 countries (approx. 60% of revenues). Military aircraft and weapons systems account for approximately 20% of total revenues from the U.S. Department of Defense.
Boeing offers facilities and networks 24 hours a day throughout the globe. Support services are broad and deep; including pilot training, spare parts, onsite technical assistance, engineering, software solutions, and financing for Boeing products.
Boeing currently enjoys the benefits of a backlog of approximately 5,800 aircraft orders. Replacement demand from the U.S. and Europe along with new demand from emerging markets is providing above average growth for an industry dominated by just two companies: Boeing and Airbus.
The duopoly provides significant competitive advantages. Customers expect to pay for support and service for about 20 years after their purchase of an aircraft. Switching costs are significant (pilot, crew, and maintenance training, spare parts, etc.), causing customers to be loyal to a single company when their needs are met.
The defense, space, and security segment of Boeing is facing difficulty due to recent restrained government spending and losing ground to competitors for large new programs. It’s hard to see revenues from this segment providing any growth for the next several years.
While Boeing enjoys its dominant position in Commercial Aircraft, any surprise positive developments in the defense sector could provide an unexpected improvement in outlook. It’s possible the defense cycle could be turning as countries begin to realize the world is a dangerous place and current spending restraint may be hurting the ability to restrain or defeat rising threats.
The long term health of the industry heavily depends on the economy and the willingness of populations to fly. Air travel demand can be affected by economic downturns, terrorism, and other geopolitical threats.
