Although the aviation industry as a whole is an extremely competitive market, there is no competition among the suppliers of aircraft. In the great market of the commercial aircraft business deals, the big players Boeing (BA) and Airbus group, previously known as European aeronautic defence and space company (EADS).
Key players in commercial aircraft Production
Airbus and Boeing, the world’s only major producers of passenger aircraft, to dominate the food industry of the airline with their trademark “Boeing” 7-series and Airbus a-series jets.
Although the two companies share almost exclusive control of the worldwide aircraft business offer for large commercial aircraft, including wide-body aircraft, wide-body aircraft and Jumbo jets, several other companies, to a lesser extent, in other segments of the aerospace industry.
- The Corporation “United technologies” and “General electric”, for example, the production of engines and components for Telecom industry.
- Bombardier, based in Canada, and Embraer-a Brazilian aircraft, occupy a leading position in the regional and business aircraft, focusing on smaller jets.
Globally, competition with Boeing and Airbus difficult. Although at the regional level, other companies can take advantage of a niche in commercial aviation, or at least try to do it.
- In addition to the more established Bombardier and Embraer, new suppliers include airlines comac in China, Mitsubishi in Japan and in Russia. Comac and UAC is working on a series of new widebody aircraft in a joint venture, which, they hope, ultimately, make them a legitimate competitor to the dominance of Airbus and Boeing in the large jet space.
Boeing and Airbus also will have a significant market share in the supply of military aircraft — especially in the United States — face against competitors such as Lockheed Martin and the organization of technology. However, more than half Boeing and three quarters of Airbus revenues come from its commercial activities.
