In aerospace terms alone, the UK enjoys a 17% share of the global market which – alongside the defence sector, with 22% of the global market – represents a substantial source of income to the UK economy annually. In global market terms, the contributions of these two sectors alone make the UK the leader in Europe.

To these must be added the contributions that the security and space sectors make to the overall benefit of the UK economic wellbeing. For further details on the security sector’s contribution to the UK economy, please consult the ADS Security survey and the document below.

In total these four sectors contribute over £60bn annually to the UK economy and employ a million people across the length and breadth of the country.
