Aerospace and defense industry sector business challenges
Naval systems In 2020, the U.S. Navy selected PTC as the backbone of its model-based digital transformation effort to improve speed of capability insertion and operational readiness. This is a fundamental rethinking of how the Navy acquires, fields and sustains weapons systems. Is digital transformation accelerating your long term goals? Learn More
Space systems By some estimates, the space industry is projected to be worth $3T by the late 2040s. We’re well on our way there. The viability of commercial partnership with NASA has now been proven and the U.S. Space Force has officially begun operations. What will tomorrow bring? Learn More
Ground vehicles The military ground vehicles market is projected to be $539B by 2028. But with the recent emphasis on overseas drawdowns, competition for long term contracts in the military ground vehicle market will be intensifying. Will product innovation through digital transformation be a differentiator? Learn More
Airframes Over the course of 2021, COVID restrictions and trade tensions will both be easing, sparking a multi-year rebound in the airframe business. Additionally, the supersonic passenger jet and eVTOL markets are both developing rapidly. In all these realms, which players will emerge as new leaders? Learn More
