The advent of globally industrialized economies also led to the development of the aerospace and defense industry worldwide. This was fueled by governments of advanced nations pumping in major investments to build capacities for aerospace and defense industries in the post war scenario. A significant effort was seen in the European Aerospace and Defense Industry wherein groundbreaking inventions were carried out. This transformed the European Aerospace & Defense Industry to become a formidable contestant in the global air business.

While the European aerospace and defense industry has been enjoying moderate growth over the last couple of years, the industry has faced a slowdown in parts of Western Europe. Faced with austerity, many parts of Western Europe have cut down on their defense budgets. While unrest in Ukraine combined with threat from militant organizations from Islamic State and others pose a threat to the safety in Europe, budget cuts will no doubt lead to a slowdown in the growth of the industry in Western Europe.

Following the terror attacks in Paris and Brussels, countries across Europe are ramping up their defense capabilities in order to keep their borders safe. It remains to be seen what effect the exit of the United Kingdom from the European Union is going to have on the European aerospace and defense industry in the coming years.
