Aerospace & Defense Sector: A Target for Smart Investors in 2024

⏱ Reading Time: < 1 minute

Aerospace & Defense related manufacturing companies have consistently been among the highest selling within the manufacturing sectors for the last five years. The trend continued in 2023, and we anticipate the same in 2024.

Here’s why:

The global A&D market is expected to grow steadily, reaching $1.3 trillion by 2030. In the US alone, the market is projected to expand from $436 billion in 2022 to $550 billion by 2030, driven by a variety of factors.

In 2023, the A&D industry witnessed several trends, including a shift towards regional supply chain sourcing, increased focus on digital transformation and AI integration, development of advanced defense equipment, adoption of 5G connectivity and immersive technologies, emphasis on cybersecurity, growing use of additive manufacturing, and efforts to decarbonize with sustainable aviation fuels and new propulsion technologies.

The increase in M&A within the aerospace and defense sector is driven by companies that have strategic goals to strengthen their market position, enhance their manufacturing capabilities, and achieve greater efficiency and profitability.

Because of our recent success in selling lower middle market manufacturing companies within this sector, we’re trying to locate other opportunities for buyers who have already been both professionally and financially vetted. For those in the industry who have been considering retirement, there may never be a better time.

Accelerated Manufacturing Brokers, Inc. does so much work in the Aerospace & Defense sectors that we publish an annual report on market trends, projections, swot analysis, and annual M&A activity. We’re making this report available to you at no cost.
