Summary/Abstract: The aerospace and defence industries are on the brink of a major shake-up. The aircraft producers will ave to meet booming demand for civilian planes, while defence companies face slashed military budgets and different military priorities. Both sectors of the industry will need a serious restructuring to adapt to the changing market, with consolidations and take-overs constituting a major trend.
