We are an independent aerospace and defence management consultancy. To learn more about who we are see the profile page. There are two parts to our business: Research Reports and Bespoke Consultancy Projects
We specialise in analysis principally of markets at the tier 1 and tier 2 supplier level, as this is an important time in the evolution of these parts of the market.
Counterpoint aims to offer original and well informed research and analysis.
We also speak at conferences on supply-chain related topics. Click here to see the presentation we gave at the SpeedNews Annual Aviation Industry Suppliers Conference in Toulouse last September
Current areas of sector specialisation
We also offer Marketing services in support of customers’ business development plans.
We have just completed a new sub-sector report on engine controls. This market is seeing significant change as engine manufacturers are increasingly seeking to control key technologies, and the market for engine controls continues to consolidate.
We think there are two main growth areas in the tooling market; automation, as manufacturers seek to increase production rates and take cost out; and composite mould tooling made from composites, which has significant benefits in lower cost and weight. However, the overall picture is a declining market due to fewer new programmes over the next 5-10 years.
In our fourth report on the aerospace actuation market, we look at how the competitive landscape has changed. Most suppliers are continuing as before but some companies are taking the strategic steps to stay ahead. We look at what they have done as well as providing our usual detailed market analysis and company profiles.
Our latest aerostructures report is our largest and most comprehensive yet. We think there are far-reaching changes emerging in the market and we analyse and discuss these as well as providing our usual detailed market analysis and company profiles.
State organisations (national, supra-national and local) are keen to support aerospace firms. This report sets out to identify how and why they do it, and what sorts of organisations and suppliers benefit.
Our latest report provides analysis of market trends and detailed segmentation of this sector, including what we have learned during the year from discussions with companies in the sector and with financial companies; from consultancy assignments arising from our last report and from further analysis of the sector.
