This article focuses on current developments in the Indian aerospace industry. It is worth noting that competitive pressures are driving many aerospace companies to tap India's high-end engineering services. However, India's newest emerging offerings are aeronautical system design, testing services, cockpit equipment support software and composite structuring. With its highly skilled English-speaking labor pool, low costs and economic growth, India is quickly moving up the value chain as aircraft manufacturers look at less expensive options. Additionally, the country's experience in providing outsourcing of large-scale, process-centric information technology and its access to high technology through global alliances make it an attractive destination for engineering services.
