Outsourcing to India: Is Aerospace Next?
ExpressIndia reports that India is poised to become a key outsourcing hub for global aerospace and missile companies, including France-based MBDA missile systems, BAE and Rolls-Royce, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, and others. Perhaps “offshoring” is a better word, since the functions being sent abroad are components rather than entire processes or design/ manufacture efforts.
An indication of the growing importance of Bangalore’s aerospace potential can be gauged from the fact that during a recently concluded Aero India 2005 air show – billed as the largest in South Asia – deals worth more than $1.2 billion were signed between Indian and foreign aerospace firms.
