Company Description

Sector: Industrials
Industry: Aerospace & Defense

Lockhheed Martin is the world’s largest defense contractor with approximately 51 billion dollars in revenue for 2017. Sixty percent of revenue is received from the U.S. Department of Defense, 20% from other U.S. Government agencies, and 20% foreign militaries.

The company operates in four segments: Aeronautics accounts for nearly 40% of revenues, mission systems (combat ships and naval electronics, helicopters, etc.) 30%, space systems and missiles and fire control account for the remaining 30%.

SWOT Analysis


The world is a very dangerous place, and there is growing recognition among the populace and Congress that increased resources are needed to meet our needs. The Iraq and Afghanistan wars have left the military with high replacement and refresh needs.

Lockheed Martin is well positioned to provide the research, layout, manufacture, products, improvements, and service for systems required by the military industrial complex.


Working with government entities is never easy or efficient. Companies find themselves at the mercy of government with obstacles such as excessive red tape, prohibitive regulation, and constantly changing budgets. This makes the long term planning required for major systems challenging.


Long term experience working with governments, and near monopolies (or at least duopolies) in most of their product lines, provide unique benefits to LMT. In other words, their main weakness becomes an opportunity because so few companies can do what Lockheed Martin does so well.


Austerity in military budgets in general have kept growth rates small.  Any long periods marked by declining global conflict (which we all hope for) could bring even more drastic cuts to military spending.
