Impact of Russia-Ukraine War Implication
The war crisis and sanctions have put a strain on global investment, trade, and economic activity. Therefore, skepticism and uncertainty remain prevalent regarding the conflict, its potential reach, and its longevity. Accordingly, the restoration of normal relations among partners could prove be a sign of improvement. There is hardly any sector that the war has left untouched, especially aggravating the business landscape of sectors ranging from aerospace to oil & gas. Amidst prevailing challenges, stakeholders are gearing to turn adversities into opportunities. However, soaring military aid for Ukraine could provide impetus to stakeholders. Meanwhile, it is to be noted that the relevant sanction could augment operating costs and disrupt industries.
CPI Aerostructures Bags $8.1 Million Wing Contract from Northrop Grumman
In February 2019, US-based CPI Aerostructures announced that it has secured a huge contract worth USD 8.1 million from the aerospace giant Northrop Grumman. Under the contract, CPI will supply outer aero wing panel kits to Northrop for the latter to manufacture complete wings for its E-2D Advanced Hawkeye. The contract will be a continuation of the company’s long-standing partnership with the US Navy, which uses the Hawkeye as carrier-based airborne early warning and control aircraft. This deal will further strengthen CPI’s position as a leading provider of aircraft structural assemblies in the US.
Rising Procurement of Fighter Jets by Developing Economies to Promote Growth
National security concerns and a fierce ambition to enhance their defense capabilities have pushed developing nations such as India and China to aggressively expand their aircraft fleets. In September 2020, for example, India formally inducted five Rafale fighter jets, delivered by France to the Indian Air Force. Similarly, in November 2020, Airbus announced that it had delivered 39 jets to China in the first nine months of 2020. This growing demand for jets by these rapidly developing economies has, in turn, fueled the adoption of aero wings. Supporting this trend is the heightening military expenditures of India and China, who emerged as two of the top five largest defense spenders in 2019, according to data released by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI).
