Morgan Stanley has estimated the global space industry could generate revenues of $1.1 trillion or more in 2040, up from $350 billion currently. The global aerospace and defense industry amounts to $USD 1.6 Trillion. Sixty-seven percent of space and aerospace executives anticipate the combination of blockchain distributed ledger technology, AI, XR and quantum computing will have a transformational impact on their organization over the next three years as reported by Accenture. With thousands of suppliers responsible for delivering advanced and innovative components or materials to Tier 1 suppliers and OEMs, supply chain and logistics have long been critical to the success of every major aerospace and defense program. Today, supply chain and logistics are the industry’s top innovation priority especially given the impact of COVID19.  What's more, as aerospace and defense supply chains evolve into complex ecosystems, they’ll see more partnerships developing in the coming three years, including the developer community, startups, competitors and other industry players. SyncFab is delighted, therefore, to add a recognized aerospace industry expert to our Advisory Board.
