Ready for Takeoff: China's Advancing Aerospace Industry

Excerpt

China’s aerospace industry has advanced at an impressive rate over the past decade. While some of this progress can be attributed to rapidly growing governmental support for China’s aerospace sector, China’s aerospace capabilities have also benefited from the increasing participation of its aerospace industry in the global commercial aerospace market and the supply chains of the world’s leading aerospace firms. This monograph assesses China’s aerospace capabilities and the extent to which China’s participation in commercial aerospace markets and supply chains is contributing to the improvement of those capabilities. Specific areas assessed include China’s commercial aviation manufacturing capabilities, its commercial and military capabilities in space, efforts of the Chinese government to encourage foreign participation in the development of the aerospace industry, transfers of foreign aerospace technology to China, the extent to which U.S. and other foreign aerospace firms are dependent on supplies from China, and the implications of all of these issues for U.S. security interests. The study should be of interest to business analysts, policymakers, lawmakers, and anyone who wishes to learn about China’s market for commercial aviation, the capabilities of China’s aerospace manufacturing industry, the role foreign aerospace firms are playing in the development of China’s aerospace capabilities, and security implications for the United States.
