Last week’s 51st Bi-annual Paris Air Show was the event of the year for the Aerospace industry.
Held in Le Bourget Airport in Paris, France, this prestigious air show has brought together industry leaders from across the globe to hunt for new commercial opportunities – and over 2115 exhibitors marketing their latest and greatest projects – for the last century.
As the largest, and longest-running, aerospace trade show in the world, the Paris Air Show features companies from over 44 different countries, 285 official delegations, 3,100 international journalists and nearly 139,000 professionals’ year-over-year.
But you don’t have to be perusing the Parisian halls of Le Bourget to be a part of the action.
For investors, like us, the Paris Air Show is a tipping point for the entire aviation industry. Investors look at this week-long battle royale as a make-it-or-break-it moment to see who will be the leaders in this highly competitive industry and who is likely to come up short.
I’ve been telling you for two years now that we are in the midst of the largest aviation boom in history. An industry that analysts believe could soon topple $5.6 trillion in the next few years.
No doubt, that’s a big number. But it greatly understates the potential that tech investors can find in aviation-related plays.
