Facts & Figures

2021 Facts & Figures

The European aerospace, defence and security industries are a key enabler of a sustainable, technologically sovereign and resilient Europe. As high technology and strategic domains, they are global drivers of innovation.

ASD publishes each year statistics on the European aeronautics, space, defence and security industry. Utilised by many organisations and institutions, the ASD Facts & Figures brochure is recognised as the reference of the industry.

2020 was a challenging year, in many ways. The present edition of the ASD Facts & Figures would be incomplete if it did not illustrate the severe impact of the Covid-19 crisis on our industries, but also the resilience with which our companies mastered this unprecedented challenge and the role our technologies played in supporting civil society during the emergency.
