Aerospace Industry

Aerospace stands at the forefront of China’s industrial strategy. Adding to political prestige, perspectives for China to become the world’s first air transport market were strong motivation for entering the airliners market. These ambitions have since been confronted to difficult progress, with high-stakes programs cumulating delays. But the long-term objective remains, supporting development of a full industrial chain. Mid-term prospects are also for strong markets in General Aviation and Helicopters, supporting developments in highly innovative segments including future urban mobility. China’s Space industry stands in a specific situation, with already advanced achievements. The fact translates in high-profile successes for national Space programs, but also in accelerating development in the commercial Space market.
