COVID-19 Analysis:

The coronavirus outbreak has affected the aerospace and defense sector as well. In the first quarter of the year 2002, the Boeing company and the Airbus SE only registered delivery of 70 and 196 aircraft, respectively. But in the year 2019, during the same amount of time, both of the companies delivered around 389 aircraft. This data shows the decline in the delivery of aircraft due to the covid-19 pandemic. Due to the covid-19 pandemic, the government around the world decided to impose lockdown and issued social distancing guidelines, and it highly affected many business organizations, including aerospace.  But the growing demand for UAVs for surveillance might support the Aerostructures Market Growth. For example, in 2019, Kratos Defense & security solutions, Inc. received a $57 million contract from the Air Force and Navy of the US. This contract was to improve the performance of jet-powered unmanned vehicles.

Additionally, In July 2019, Insitu Inc.'s space & security sector received a contract of $390.4 million for three years to build an aircraft for the US Navy, marine corps, and their other military clients.  So, the Aerostructures Market had a mixed impact due to the covid-19 pandemic.

Market Dynamics:

Market Drivers:

The manufacturing and delivery of commercial aircraft have increased rapidly over the past few decades due to the increasing number of passengers preferring through the air rather than other travel modes.
