A previously stable industry is now entering a new period of turbulence, with the entrance of several new players: first Brazil’s Embraer, then Japan’s Mitsubishi, and in the near future, China’s AVIC and Comac, and Russia’s Sulhoi. There isn’t enough room for so many players trying to play catch up with the established leaders.
This special issue will cover the entry of newcomers into this field, and the expected responses from the incumbents, India and Mexico, which loom in the future.
Suitable topics include but are not limited to:
- Analysis of the civil aircraft industries in terms of the main competitors as well as newcomers, actual and potential
- Responses of the incumbents
