French aeronautical industry set for new heights as global demand skyrockets

Pauline Terzian - 17-déc.-2014 08:47:32
More than Airbus   The European aviation industry, the production, maintenance and support of civil aircraft, is currently second largest in the world following the US’s Boeing led sector. It is undeniably integral to France in producing jobs and growth, as it is the largest foreign looking sector with 22 billion euros in net exports. Many SMEs depend and service Airbus and these will directly benefit from the impending expansion of the giant’s aircraft deliveries, as for the A320 for example, rising from 42 to the target of 50 planes per month.   Aside Airbus’s presence, there are many smaller companies that have succeeded independently and are capturing attention abroad. For example, Mapaero produces paint for airplane interiors and exteriors, such as for aircraft’s wheels. They rapidly acquire new airlines as clients, the company being particularly innovative as its products are in line with recent EU regulations restricting chemicals in paint. The company’s attempts to limit impact on environment will also secure it a bright future.   Ready for Take Off   The French aviation industry is currently well diversified, mature and a world leader. What are its prospects for the future? It seems hard for things to get better, but it certainly looks this way. Brice Robin, Ubifrance’s project head explains that the industry is not lingering on its current successes: “Yes, over the last 100 years France has a history with aviation. This however is never enough, and we have to look to innovation for the future. For example French companies spend an average of 14% of their revenues on R&D.”   Innovation is incredibly important for France to extend its advantage in a market that requires the utmost quality in order to ensure the security and longevity of its very expensive products to its prospective clients. Mr. Robin adds that there is an industry pressure for firms to “deliver faster, perfect parts with high level of quality, and better products with new technology, such as lower weight.”   There are competitors arising in developing markets such as Brazil, China and Russia. However, they are likely to have difficulty in competing with France’s knowhow and completeness of services. Mr. Robin explains, as an example, that the French maintenance’s market provides a one-stop shop for clients and this reduces costs as well as being convenient: “Today buyers don’t only look at the cost of aircraft, but also the maintenance and all else surrounding the aircraft since they will keep the aircraft for 25 to 35 years. They will also be renovating the aircraft interior every 5 to 10 years.” An airline doing business in France will not only purchase from Airbus but also look to other French companies, some located as near as the Toulouse metropolitan area, that provide maintenance and other support in usage such as refurbishment.    Mr. Robin puts this all in perspective of the emerging competition of the French industry: “Clients cannot supply all of their parts and components from a new player in an emerging market because some technologies, materials, designs, and new processes there will not be available and this is a French advantage.“ For example, for the maintenance of certain structural parts that are produced by Airbus, there is a requirement of special certification that can only be found amongst French engineers.   Ubifrance and French SMEs   Ubifrance helps French companies find clients and partners abroad. For example, Win MS participated with Ubifrance at trade shows in Dubai and was able to attain contacts with local airlines. Their aeronautical maintenance equipment were very impressive to Qatar Air, world’s second most preferred airline according to the World Airline Awards.    Aeroform provides repairing equipment for composite materials, much of which can be found in the structure of modern aircrafts. The company was looking for one distributor in Spain and Germany, and with help of Ubifrance was able to attain a list of seven to ten possible suitors in each of the markets. In three months they signed one distributor in each country and are now working with Ubifrance to achieve the same results in the Russian market.     For further information about French exporting companies, please go to: http://www.ubifrance.com/french-exporters-directory/companies.aspx?k=&z=&c=&ca=3&sca=75   http://www.airbus.com/ Aeroform : http://www.aeroform-france.fr/   Mapaero : http://www.mapaero.com/en/

  The trade show is the digital industry’s biggest event and will take place in Hanover (Germany), from 6 to 10 March 2012. UBIFRANCE will group together the French companies in two areas during the CeBIT trade show in March. Companies focused on new technology and research will be in Hall 9, and hardware specialists will be in Hall 14. A wide range of products will be exhibited, including those relating to business IT, business communications and networks, ICT infrastructure, IT and telecoms accessories, Future Internet, and 3D technologies. This year, CeBIT takes place in Hanover (in northern Germany) from 6 to 10 March. According to the European Information Technology Observatory (EITO), worldwide IT expenditure is experiencing substantial growth rates in emerging countries and should have risen by 4.3% in 2011, reaching €963.4 billion. In Europe, Germany stands out, as it exceeded the European average and experienced a significant increase in expenditure, up by 4.3% in 2011, while France enjoyed a 3.4% increase. The EITO highlights the substantial upsurge — by 4.2% — in the French infrastructure software segment in 2011. This trend is expected to continue in 2012, with a forecasted 4.8% rise. The growth in this segment is primarily the result of rising sales in storage-and-security applications, boosted by the proliferation of Cloud Computing offers. Also according to the EITO, the worldwide IT market in 2012 will grow by 5.4%, exceeding €1,000 billion in sales for the first time.
