IMPORTANT: This event will be re-scheduled to Fall 2017.


Supply Chain Challenges in the European Aerospace Industry - Opportunities for North American manufacturing companies and technology solution providers.

Target Audience:
Executives and Management of
innovative manufacturing companies and technology solution providers with a focus on Digital Transformation.

Content:
Aviation is a growth market. Regardless of political, economic and health crises, Commercial Aviation has experienced phenomenal growth over the last two decades and worldwide air travel is expected to double again within the next 15 years.

Current forecasts show that in order to satisfy this market demand the current worldwide fleet of 16,000 passenger aircraft with 100+ seats is expected to grow by an additional 19,000 aircraft. Furthermore, almost 70% of the existing fleet will need to be replaced during that same timeframe, bringing the total demand up to 30,000 new aircraft until 2030.

This results in an estimated market volume of USD 4.1 trillion over the next 15 years. As of April 2017, the two major aircraft manufacturers Boeing and Airbus already have a combined backlog of more than 12,000 confirmed orders with up to 80% of aircraft components coming from suppliers. For suppliers, this translates into a multitude of opportunities but also challenges.

Innovative manufacturing technologies and processes are becoming increasingly important throughout the entire supply chain. Digital Transformation will be a key enabler for the industry going forward.

Benefits:
Attendees will gain an overview of current challenges in the European Aerospace Supply Chain and how these challenges can turn into opportunities for innovative manufacturing companies and technology solution providers in North America. You will get an understanding on how to move forward in identifying opportunities within the European Supply Chain and how to build up the capabilities required in the Aerospace Industry.
