The aerospace and defense industry continues to undergo major transition. Europe and the United States are actively reducing their defense budgets while countries in the Middle East, Asia and South America look to expand their investments. Meanwhile, commercial aerospace continues an upward trend and holds significant growth opportunities.

In order to thrive in this evolving market, aerospace and defense OEMs are pursuing numerous opportunities including global expansion and next-generation product development, while still seeking to improve efficiency and manage costs. Many commercial aerospace companies have already grown accustomed to selling and building products around the world, yet defense companies are relatively new to extending their reach beyond their domestic markets. This will require them to coordinate R&D and production efforts, globalize their supply chain and ensure adherence to export regulations.

Advances in technology and digitization will have a profound effect on next-generation product development. New materials and processes will increase efficiency, improve safety, and reduce the weight of aircraft and vehicles in order to improve fuel economy. Communication, control and navigation systems continue to become more sophisticated, in addition to consumers' expectation of internet connectivity and access to music, movies and television while in-flight, all requiring more complex electronics.

These changes will likely impact the type of high performance wire, cable and wire management products necessary for vehicle, equipment and system wiring and harnesses, including the use of lighter, smaller, and tougher materials. These harnesses are used for various aerospace and defense applications, including sensors and controls, display interfaces, engine systems, as well as navigation and in-flight entertainment connectivity.
