Last published date: 2020-10-05

Overview

The UK aerospace industry is the second largest in the world, behind that of the U.S. In 2019, total UK civil aerospace turnover totaled over $45.5 billion, and the sector had approximately a 17% global market share.  The UK aerospace industry is the crown jewel for UK exports and, even though the UK does not produce large civil aircraft, 90% of domestic aerospace production is exported.  The UK has a reputation as a global center of excellence for the design and production of engines, helicopters, wings, structures, and aircraft systems (including landing gear).  Rolls-Royce-manufactured engines power more than 35 types of commercial aircraft, and the company has over 13,000 engines in service around the world.   The UK also designs and manufactures wings for all Airbus aircraft platforms.   In addition to manufacturing, the UK has a thriving maintenance, repair and overhaul sector (MRO), that provides services to the huge numbers of military and civil aircraft that fly through and from the UK every year.  It is estimated that there are over 1,300 companies involved in the MRO and logistics sector in the UK with a combined turnover of over $195 billion and employing over 57,000 people. The aerospace industry is a major market for U.S. exports in the United Kingdom.

The UK commercial space industry is rapidly growing, it produced a turnover of over $18.7 billion in 2019 and has an ambition to capture 10% of the global space market by 2030. With $714 million invested in Research and Development, the Space industry is 6 times more R&D intensive than the UK average. Accelerating growth year on year, the UK is a world leader in nano and small satellites.  The commercial space sector is likely to see steady investments in new and existing space technologies and services, with funding coming primarily from industry and venture capital with government support.  The market can be broken down into four main components.  Over two-thirds of total market income is derived from Space Applications, followed by the smaller components of Space Operations, Space Manufacturing, and auxiliary services.

After being removed from access to the EU’s Galileo system, a European Union alternative to GPS, the UK moved to create its own GNSS system. After cost estimates became too high, the British government scaled back plans for its proposed $6.3 billion sovereign satellite navigation system.   Officials are now exploring the potential for a system that would deliver the same civil and military tracking services as Galileo and GPS while operating at a lower altitude and on a different frequency.

Revenues in the commercial space market primarily come from manufacturing of satellites used for earth observation and communications.  Accelerating growth year on year, the UK is a world leader in nano, small satellites and the UK space sector has an ambition to capture 10% of the global space market by 2030.  In addition, in June 2020, the U.S. and the UK concluded a Technology Safeguards Agreement (TSA) associated with U.S. participation in space launches from the UK which will enable the UK to import launch technology to develop their commercial launch capability.  

Drones are becoming an increasingly familiar aspect of life and work in the UK playing a growing role in areas ranging from emergency services to construction to oil and gas.  The rising use of drones in business and public services is predicted to be highly impactful and deliver significant benefits to the British economy and society.  Estimates have forecasted that by 2030 the impact of drones could increase the UK GDP by $53 billion and create over 600,000 new jobs.  Drones have seen a significant uptake in the oil & gas industry.  Drone use is also well established in the utility industry, in particular for the inspection of long, liner assets such as powerlines.

Like the internet and GPS before them, drones are evolving beyond their military origin to become powerful business tools.  Drones have already made the leap to the consumer market, and now they are being put to work in commercial and civil government applications.  This is creating a market opportunity for companies that provide platforms, sensors and software.  

With the UK exiting the European Union, there is uncertainty around the impact of Brexit on the aerospace and defense (A&D) sector.  The relationships between the UK and other countries, especially the U.S., coupled with the future renegotiation of trade agreements, will play a major role in the challenges and opportunities facing the UK’s A&D industry.  UK defense spending is expected to remain steady, with a slight impact on certain defense programs due to economic uncertainty.  Since the Brexit vote in June 2016, the pound sterling has depreciated in value, which is expected to boost the UK’s exports as they become more cost competitive. 

More than 3,000 aerospace companies operate in the UK, and the aerospace sector has the largest number of SME companies in Europe, providing over 282,000 jobs directly and indirectly.  Domestic companies include BAE Systems, Cobham, GKN, Meggitt, QinetiQ, Rolls-Royce, and Ultra Electronics.  Non-domestic companies with a major presence include Boeing, Airbus Group, Leonardo (including its AgustaWestland and Selex ES subsidiaries), General Electric (including its GE Aviation Systems subsidiary), Lockheed Martin, MBDA, Safran, and Thales Group.

Airbus UK in Broughton assembles the wings for all Airbus civil aircraft, including the new A350 XWB.  In October 2018, Boeing opened a production facility in Sheffield, Boeing’s first manufacturing site in Europe. The $50 million facility is located near the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre with Boeing (AMRC).  GKN Aerospace will also produce the new Advanced Technology Winglet for the Boeing 737 MAX.  Rolls-Royce-manufactured engines power more than 35 types of commercial aircraft. 

The UK government has demonstrated significant interest in developing and increasing the domestic supply chain.  UK industry and government established the Aerospace Growth Partnership (AGP), which develops initiatives to encourage UK companies to cooperate closely and to address gaps and problems that affect the sector, tackle barriers to growth, and boost both UK exports and high value jobs. 

Leading Sub-Sectors

Space

There are 4 primary segments of the commercial space market: Space Applications, Space Operations, Space Manufacturing, and Auxiliary Services.  Space Applications have a 69.5% market share by income, including the dominant subsector of Direct-To-Home broadcasting, and smaller sections like supply of user devices and equipment and mobile sat con services.  Space Operations has a 14.7% market share and includes proprietary satellite operations and ground station networks.  Space Manufacturing holds a 12.7% market share and includes a diverse array of subsectors each holding a small piece of the sector.   Auxiliary Services represent the smallest part of the market, holding a 3.1% market share.

The Technology Safeguards Agreement signed in June 2020 will make it much easier for U.S. firms to bring rocket hardware into the UK.  The agreement was a must-have for U.S. companies like Virgin Orbit and Lockheed Martin to start launching satellites from Britain.  The U.K. Space Agency announced it will provide $9.5 million to Virgin Orbit U.K. Ltd., the U.K. branch of Virgin Orbit, for launch support equipment and mission planning activities at Cornwall Airport Newquay, also known as Spaceport Cornwall, intended to support flights by Virgin Orbit’s LauncherOne air-launch system.  The space agency funding is part of a broader funding package of $25 million to allow Virgin Orbit to operate from the airport in southwestern England.

The British government has been pursuing various efforts to establish a domestic launch capability in recent years.  In July 2018, it announced it would fund development of a vertical launch site in northern Scotland and support two companies, Lockheed Martin and Orbex, who plan to fly small launch vehicles from the site.  At the same time, the government left open the door for supporting other launch facilities, including horizontal launch sites like in Cornwall.  Construction of the vertical launch site in Scotland has yet to begin, as local officials work on agreements to obtain the land and address environmental concerns. Virgin Orbit could host its first LauncherOne mission as soon as late 2021, a schedule that will depend on various regulatory approvals as well as completion of the infrastructure improvements at the airport. Virgin Orbit is in the final phases of development of LauncherOne, a rocket that is released from a Boeing 747 aircraft and is capable of placing several hundred kilograms into low Earth orbit.

There are estimated to be 3,500 to 10,000 satellites due to be launched globally by 2025.  To capture a portion of that market, a National Satellite Test Facility will be established at the Harwell Campus in Oxfordshire.  The British Government is investing $125 million to establish the National Satellite Test Facility.  The investment is being led by the RAL Space and will provide a set of co-located facilities for the assembly, integration and testing of space payloads and satellites. This facility will enable industry to develop next-generation launch technologies and testing capabilities needed to construct satellites and deliver payloads into orbit.

In the wake of Brexit, UK Government will face important decisions, including which space capabilities to invest in, how much to participate in international space projects, what the role should be for the UK Space Agency, and how much integration should exist between the civil and defense space efforts.  Brexit could result in the UK ending its participation in EU-funded space programs, or the UK being prohibited by the EU to participate in programs similar to the Galileo program. The withdrawal from Galileo suggests the UK Space Agency, responsible for strategic decisions on the UK civil space program, may be shifting its focus from investing in international space projects to acquiring national space capabilities of its own.

Helicopters

The UK’s helicopter market is dominated by Leonardo and Airbus Helicopters UK.  Leonardo is the largest inward investor in the UK defense sector, the largest Italian inward investor to the UK, and one of the biggest suppliers of defense equipment to the UK MOD.  Leonardo implements its helicopter division activities through a strong industrial presence in the UK. The company employs around 7,000 people in UK, while supporting a further 10,000 jobs in the supply chain including 1,550 SMEs, serving both commercial and government customers worldwide.

For over 30 years, Airbus Helicopters UK has provided products and services for both the civil and military helicopter markets. With more than 300 civil helicopters customized and delivered in the UK, Airbus Helicopters UK is the leading provider of helicopters in the UK’s civil and para-public market with a 46% fleet share, and it dominates the UK security and emergency services market.

Unmanned Aircraft Systems (Drones)

In the UK, delivery drones could become business as usual by 2030. Large retail and logistics companies are investing in delivery drones with the aim of achieving increased efficiency, lower costs, and increased customer satisfaction.  The scope of delivery drones could also be beyond dropping off parcels in the ‘last mile’ of client logistics.  Drones will be ubiquitous in warehousing and able to autonomously conduct real time stock checks by scanning inventory. This will integrate seamlessly with other ground-based autonomous warehouse robotics in an end-to-end management and movement of inventory driven by AI with no human touch.

Delivery drones in the UK could also integrate with other advances in technology, for example a driverless vehicle, loaded with parcels by robotics at the warehouse that automatically dispatches multiple delivery drones when it nears the most efficient point to complete its deliveries.  Such a vehicle would serve as a base station for the drones providing charging and payload swapping as required.  This scenario is some way off, as current technical and regulatory challenges remain such as flying pilotless and beyond visual line of site (BVLOS) in congested urban areas and integrating with other airspace users.

Accident response drones may well be a common sight above roads in the UK by 2030 enabling live data from accident scenes to be shared in real time with emergency services so they know what to expect prior to arriving on scene.  Drones would also be used to store evidence from an accident reducing the time it takes to reopen the road.  Accident response drones may open up new revenue streams for the public sector by selling the data to insurance companies.  

UK Search and Rescue organization will also present opportunities for companies that provide technology to assist in rescue operations.  The ability to carry sensors that provide real time information during inclement weather to rescue centers will keep rescue personnel away from dangerous situations while still providing needed information.  In the construction industry, drones are already providing cheaper and more efficient solutions for mapping sites and recording construction progress.  Drones are also providing 3D information and integrating it with existing building information modelling (BIM) systems.    

New UK drone laws came into effect on 30 November 2019.  These require anyone who flies a drone that weighs between 250g and 20kg to take a safety test consisting of 20 multiple choice questions and to register as a drone operator and flyer.  The operator ID must be displayed clearly on the drone.  This means it’s now illegal to fly a drone in the UK without meeting these requirements, unless the drone weighs 249g or less.  Police across the UK have received powers to land, inspect and seize.  They also have stop and search powers around airports, prisons and other restricted locations.

Additive Manufacturing

Additive manufacturing, commonly referred to as 3D printing, is experiencing increased momentum within the UK aerospace sector.  3D printing enables weight reduction, manufacture of niche, low-volume parts and complex design parts, as well as reducing complexity of assembly processes.  Components most suitable for manufacturing include low and high temperature fasteners, discs, hubs, spacers, seals, compressor blades, landing gear, and aircraft interiors.

Lightweight materials (Composites):  Lightweight materials are increasingly being adopted in the UK aerospace sector to provide enhanced properties such as high strength-to-weight ratio, superior impact and corrosion resistance, and extreme high temperature resistance.  The University of Bristol received an investment of $33  million from the UK Government to develop a UK National Composites Centre for advanced research on composites used in aerospace.

Opportunities

The opportunities in this market continue to be those associated with the manufacturing of new aircraft or engine models, or for those companies that employ the latest technology such as composites or additive manufacturing.   In addition, the UK aerospace industry is also seeing an increase in the use of cloud computing platforms, with innovation in integrated solutions such as flight planning tools and digital flight management systems. 

The best prospects in the UK continue to include:

 Aerodynamics (e.g. wing design);

  • Propulsion (e.g. rotor blades, engine assembly);
  • Aero structures (e.g. fuselage & wing assembly); and
  • Advanced systems (e.g. avionics, undercarriage).

The UK continues to enjoy a record backlog of orders for equipment across narrow- and wide-body aircraft, but to deliver on these orders is an increasing challenge within the UK supply chain.  This backlog of orders is becoming more acute for tier 2 suppliers and below, and may cause UK companies to consider forming new alliances to create extra capacity to meet obligations.  Suppliers should consider collaborating with a larger customer with an established presence in the UK which is looking to increase capacity.  U.S. companies should also expect to enter the UK market at a lower tier of the supply chain than they might otherwise usually enter in the U.S. or globally.  Suppliers may also need to consider using a local distributor or agent with established ties within the market.

Entering the UK aerospace market requires patience, investment, innovative products, and competitive pricing. The aerospace supply chain is well-integrated with the primes all looking to reduce the number of their suppliers.  A U.S. company can expect to have to commit both time and resources to enter or expand within the UK aerospace market, especially companies providing what are known as “me too” products and services.  Selling to OEMs as well as tier 1 and 2 manufacturers entails a vendor/product qualification and assessment process.  All U.S. companies desiring to become a supplier will need to register with their prospective customer.  In addition, AS9100 and NADCAP would be considered minimum requirements for doing business in the aerospace supply chain in the UK. All companies desiring to become a supplier to the Ministry of Defence are required to complete Cyber Essentials accreditation.

With such a well-integrated and mature supply chain, new U.S. suppliers must demonstrate a clear competitive advantage if they are to be successful in the UK. With most of the major aerospace manufacturers in the UK looking to simplify their supply chains, there are fewer opportunities to supply and these opportunities will tend to be further down the supply chain.  As long as suppliers are compliant with EU regulations/standards, they should not encounter any significant technical barriers to entry.

Defense Equipment

Overview

The UK has the world’s 6th largest defense budget and, on a rolling 10-year basis, the UK is the second largest global exporter of defense equipment.  Although the UK is a major exporter of defense equipment, the UK continues to be a major importer of defense equipment and the majority of this equipment is either advanced equipment from the U.S. or weapons systems won on a competitive tender awarded to overseas firms.  In addition to its sourcing of materials from the U.S., the UK also sources significant quantities of equipment from suppliers on the European continent.

The  Defence Equipment Plan of the Ministry of Defence (MOD) forecasts expenditure for 10 years from 2019 at approximately $237 billion. The Equipment Plan covers the period from 1 April 2019 to March 2029 and sets out spending plans for the procurement and support of equipment for the Armed Forces. Additionally, the UK remains committed to innovation and has committed $1 billion over a ten-year period.  The UK Secretary of State for Defence launched the Innovation Initiative to deliver innovation in defense through the Defence and Security Accelerator and the $1 billion Defence Innovation Fund.  It will take forward the best proposals, from inside and outside of the MOD, in an open competitive process.  It will not seek to favor specific areas of innovation (for example technological, procedural) but will enable as broad a scope of innovation as possible.

In 2019, the MOD set out to Parliament the Defence Prosperity Program which is designed to ensure that it grows its contribution to the UK economy and delivers defense capability at the best value. The Prosperity Program is focused upon embedding prosperity into MOD policy, processes and culture; quantifying the Defence contribution to the UK economy; sustaining an internationally competitive Defence sector for the UK; and growing exports and inward investment for money.  U.S. companies desiring to supply equipment to the MOD should consider how its offer contributes to the Prosperity Program.

Leading Sub-Sectors

Specific equipment opportunities exist in:

Naval Command currently plans to spend around $38.9 billion in the Equipment Plan over the next ten years. This planned spending encompasses surface ship and maritime helicopter upgrades and procurement, in service support of maritime platforms and programs to improve availability and sustainability of equipment and capabilities.

Army Command plans to spend around $40 billion on the Army’s Equipment over the next decade. Army Command is responsible for armored fighting vehicles, artillery systems, protected and support vehicles, helicopters, unmanned air systems and soldier fighting systems.

Air Command plans to spend around $40 billion on the Equipment Plan over the next decade. Air Command is responsible for three major sectors: Combat Air, Air Mobility and Command, Control, Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR).

Joint Forces Command (JFC) plans to spend around $39 billion on the Equipment Plan over the next decade. JFC is responsible for four major sectors: C4ISR, Joint Logistics, Medical and Special Projects.

Ships                 

$24.4 billion will be spent on surface ships over the next 10 years.  This includes completion of build and trials activity for HMS Prince of Wales and continued capability delivery into HMS Queen Elizabeth, continued development and initial build of the class of eight Type 26 Frigates, development and delivery into service of a new class of initially five Type 31 Frigates, completion five new Offshore Patrol Vessels and the development of a mine hunting system.  

Submarines

$58.8 billion will be spent on submarines over the next 10 years.  This includes the delivery of four Dreadnought Class submarines to replace the Vanguard Class, the delivery of seven Astute Class submarines to replace the Trafalgar Class and the procurement of naval nuclear propulsion systems.

Land Equipment

$24.5 billion will be spent on land equipment over the next 10 years.  This includes the Warrior Capability Sustainment Program, the Challenger 2 Life Extension Program, and the Scout Specialist Vehicle and Utility Vehicle programs, which will replace a range of tracked armored vehicles reaching the end of their visible lifespan.

Weapons

$18.5 billion -will be spent on weapons systems over the next 10 years. About 75% will be used to procure guided weapon systems through the Complex Weapons Program. Within this Program, most of this is delivered through a partnering agreement with MBDA which is termed the Complex Weapons Portfolio Management Agreement. The remainder will fund the provision of various Test & Evaluation and Training Services.

Combat Air

$22.1 billion (£18 billion) will be spent on combat air over the next 10 years.  This includes Typhoon enhanced capability, delivery of the F-35 Lightning II and Unmanned Air Systems. The MOD will buy 138 F-35 Lightning aircraft over the life of the program.

Air Support

$21.5 billion will be spent over the next 10 years.  This includes the procurement of 9 Boeing P-8A Poseidon Maritime Patrol Aircrafts, the A400M future generation of strategic air transport, continuation of the Voyager transport and air-to-air refueling aircraft program, and the New Airseeker/Rivet Joint aircraft

Helicopters

$13.6 billion will be spent on helicopter capabilities over the next 10 years.  This includes upgrades to existing airframes, investment in new airframes and longer-term rationalization to four core helicopter fleets – Chinook, Merlin, Apache and Wildcat.

ISTAR

$7.2 billion will be spent on ISTAR over the next 10 years.  This investment includes spend on intelligence networks and applications; CBRN detection and countermeasures; operational surveillance systems and electronic countermeasures; air traffic management and tactical data links.

In addition, four technologies are emerging that have disruptive capability with the MOD, which are already starting to create an impact in the commercial world and will have an equally big impact on the way the MOD does business in the future:

Space

The MOD has outlined a space program and committed $38 million to fast-track the launch of a small satellite demonstrator which will be supported by a transatlantic team of UK and U.S. defence personnel, named Team ARTEMIS, that will sit alongside a host of other programs that will demonstrate the MOD’s role in space. This includes the UK becoming the first partner nation to join Operation Olympic Defender, a US-led international coalition formed to strengthen deterrence against hostile actors. The demonstrator will be designed to understand the military utility of small satellites and provide information to combat aircraft more quickly than ever, while developing the skills and knowledge base the MOD will need in the future across a range of space mission areas. The program is being led by RAF Air Staff, supported by Defence Equipment & Support and the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory. Team ARTEMIS industry partners include Airbus, Raytheon, Surrey Satellite Technology Limited and Virgin Orbit.

Autonomous unmanned vehicles

Although autonomous unmanned vehicles have been used by the MOD for a number of years, the MOD is looking to dramatically increase its use of autonomous unmanned vehicles for a variety of uses in the air, land, surface and sub-surface domains.  Trials using autonomous vehicles for parcel delivery suggest they have the potential to provide logistical support in hostile environments or disaster-relief situations.  The MOD and the UK Security Services have held several competitions with industry to evaluate the future use of autonomous unmanned vehicles. 

3D printing and additive manufacturing

The use of 3D printing is moving from one-off production and prototyping and is now transitioning into mainstream manufacturing and production with the establishment of 3D printer farms.  A key advantage of manufacturers equipped with 3D printing is the ability to quickly re-program machines to respond to frequent demand changes.  The MOD is encouraging engineers to explore ways to 3D print different materials together to produce cost-efficient and sustainable parts for the aerospace and defense industry.

Virtual Reality

Virtual Reality (VR) is another technology that has been around for a number of years; flight simulators and shooting/gun houses are a prime example.  However, what is different now is that VR systems are now available to anyone with a smartphone.  As a result, innovation in VR has dramatically increased while the cost of VR technology has dramatically decreased.  The MOD is looking to take advantage of the advancements in VR technology as well as the reduction in the cost of VR systems to modernize its training programs.  

Artificial Intelligence and Big Data

The MOD is studying the use of artificial Intelligence (AI) and big data for its use in a variety of defense and security applications.  The increasing availability of big data matched to intelligent systems has the ability to revolutionize the way the MOD operates.  While intelligent systems evolve, however, cyber security concerns will become ever more important.  Since most intelligent systems are currently networked, their susceptibility to cyber-attack remains a risk. Therefore, in the future these systems may operate more autonomously within a closed environment to minimize the vulnerability to attack.

Opportunities

The UK defense industry is sophisticated and mature.  Defense suppliers looking to export into the UK can expect to find a highly competitive environment and they must demonstrate a clear competitive advantage.  A company with non-British ownership or without a presence in the UK is not necessarily at a competitive disadvantage compared with British firms seeking MOD business.  However, a U.S. company must expect to commit both time and resources to enter or expand within the UK defense market.  Selling through an established UK company is the least risky market entry strategy for most U.S. defense providers to enter into the UK defense supply chain. 

Through the Defence and Security Accelerator, the MOD frequently holds industry engagement days and competitions to evaluate equipment and technology.  The best way for U.S. companies desiring to engage in meaningful dialogue with the MOD is through these MOD sponsored industry days and competitions. For announcements on MOD events relevant to a particular defense sector, suppliers should consistently monitor announcements on the Defence and Security Accelerator website.
