Topics: Boeing
The Boeing Company operates in the industry of aerospace and defense. The largest aerospace company, Boeing is the #2 maker of large commercial jets (behind rival Airbus) and the #2 defense contractor behind Lockheed Martin. The aerospace and defense industry did suffer the effects of a post-9/11 society. Because of the weakened and fearful tourism market, spending on commercial aircraft did decrease. But recently, revenues have improved considerably as travelers are becoming more comfortable with flying again. Defense expenditures are the leading source of revenue for the US industry. Boeing, despite aerospace spending decreasing, has profited from projects such as the missile interception network and revamp of the US armed forces. The main players in the defense industry are Boeing, Northrop Grumman, Lockheed Martin, General Dynamics and Honeywell International. Below is a table illustrating the revenues of the lead companies in the defense industry, according to Reuters :
