On behalf of the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), Ricardo Energy & Environment is carrying out a study of the UK Civil Aerospace Supply Chain. This study is also supported by the Aerospace Growth Partnership (AGP), Aerospace Defence & Security (ADS), Aerospace Technology Institute (ATI) and the Regional Aerospace Alliances (RAAs).
With the expectation that the global aerospace market is to be worth over $5tr by the 2030s, we are keen to ensure the UK civil aerospace supply chain is well positioned to secure as much workshare of this opportunity as possible. The first step of this is to understand better the current position and views of the UK supply chain.
The results of the survey will be used to understand how the UK supply chain is positioned to take advantage of this growth potential or, conversely, where there may be opportunities for support mechanisms to be developed to enable growth to take place. Your participation in this survey is valued and important.
Your responses to the survey questions will be used solely for the analysis of the Civil Aerospace Supply Chain. All figures will be held only by Ricardo Energy and Environment and will be aggregated and anonymised before sharing with BIS or any other stakeholders, or before publication of any reports based on our analysis. We fully appreciate the commercial sensitivity of your data and have taken these steps to maintain its confidentiality and security. However we will share the names of participating organisations with BIS for their follow up activities.
The survey should take no more than 15-20 minutes of your time to complete. It will ease the completion of the survey if you have the following information to hand:
• Company turnover and procurement spend for the last financial year
• Company employees
• The above disaggregated by global, UK and primary site
• A list of your top customers and suppliers”
