Within the Airline Manufacturing Industry there have been two prominent leaders, Airbus and Boeing. Both have become emerging leaders with the introduction of new aircraft such as the AirbusA380 as well as the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Throughout time, there have been many different aircraft manufacturing companies and now we see Boeing and Airbus rise to the top. Boeing has a rich history which dates back to 1916. Airbus has only been around since 1970 but has been a huge rival for Boeing. A number of different barriers and occurrences have happened to these companies over time but a lot of the success is due to their drive to succeed in the market. Throughout this research, we would make findings that support which aircraft manufacturer we believe will be the leader in 5 years. With financial analysis as well as strategic moves taken into account, we will be able to provide adequate judgment and research to properly give an accurate prediction as to who will emerge as the industry leader.
