Airbus & Boeing

...Airbus vs. Boeing Stuart Taylor Chris Tillmanns November 13, 2002 The airline manufacturing industry consists of only two firms, Airbus in Toulouse, France and the Chicago-based Boeing. Two recent research and development moves at the two firms offer an insight into the positioning strategy that each is taking in the future market place. It seems the two firms are accenting two niche markets with a pair of flagship products, neither of which are in direct competition with each other. This will allow for the firms to stave off price competition in the short term by differentiating product lines, which is desirable given the recent increase in buyer power gained by lowcost airlines. Current Market Position Airbus Airbus controls 46% of the market. 1 It was formed in the 1970’s as a consortium of European aerospace firms, and was integrated into a single company in 2001. It was designed by European nations to compete with the large American manufacturers and received subsidies from the various European governments. Their product line extends from the single aisle A320 to the larger, twin aisle A340. Boeing Boeing, naturally, currently controls the other 54% of the market for commercial aircraft in terms of value delivered, and its commercial unit took in $30.1 billion in 2001.2 It introduced the 747 Jumbo Jet in 1966 which revolutionized the concept of air travel due to its large size, and ushered in the era of mass air travel. In addition, it produces a wide range...

Airbus vs. Boeing (a)

...REV: SEPTEMBER 18, 2007 ERICH ALEXANDER VOIGT JORDAN MITCHELL Airbus vs. Boeing (A) Should Airbus go ahead and develop its own version of a super jumbo (the A3XX)? Should Boeing develop a larger version of the 747? What would Boeing and Airbus gain by teaming up? What could they lose? The answers to these questions would determine the future of both companies for many years to come. The Commercial Airline Industry Do The global aviation industry was sized at approximately $100 billion as of 1992. The single largest segment was the manufacture and sale of large commercial aircraft, which totaled $38.5 billion in 1991.1 The sale of large commercial aircraft was expected to grow to $40 billion by the end of 1992. The worldwide commercial aircraft fleet was made up of nearly 8,000 passenger and 1,200 cargo planes spread out over 450 airlines and operators. Large commercial aircraft were defined as airplanes with 100 or more seats. Large aircraft made up 90% of the fleet, while smaller airplanes accounted for the remaining 10%.2 The VLCT was defined as a plane over 400 seats or with the ____________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________ Professor Ramon Casadesus-Masanell, Erich Alexander Voigt (Tiggeman Associates), and Research Associate Jordan Mitchell prepared this case.

Boeing Case

...Introduction : The case traces the history of Boeing, one of the two makers of commercial aircraft. At last in the year 2006 Boeing have recovered from its multi year setback in its competitive position with its competitor Airbus industries in the commercial aircraft industry. From mid 1990 Boeing had been losing in aircraft order and profit. Airbus booked more order than Boeing in its history in the year 1999 and repeated regularly until 2005. In the first half of 2006, Boeing booked 4 times more aircraft than Airbus. In 2005 Airbus repeatedly delayed in the delivery of its newest model A380, causing embarrassment, customer had also panned Airbus smallest model A350 at the drawing board stage and requiring rework on the model. Boeing two engine long haul 787 Dreamliner, a direct competitor to A380 and A350, had received rave reviews for its technological excellence, backed by firm orders from commercial airlines and aircraft leasing companies. Commercial airlines are the customer of Boeing and Airbus, had collectively losing in the early 2000. Some times the concern people were thinking of Boeing. Did the Boeing learn its lesson and the current good fortunes reflect in the long run. Could they able to ride on Airbus due to their missteps and misfortune? Boeing showing its excellence in design, solid order book position and their efficiency and production increased. The Company is almost synonymous with commercial air travel, due to the worldwide acceptance of its......

Airbus vs Boeing

...Executive Summary Activities in the commercial aeroplane manufacturing industry have been outshined by the competition involving the European owned Airbus and the USA owned Boeing. These two companies exist as a duopoly at the top end of the commercial aeroplane manufacturing industry that covers the development of airplanes with a capability of more than 200 persons. Other aeroplane manufacturers also exist but at the lower end of the industry, these smaller firms mainly develop low capacity airplanes that basically convey less than 150 persons. Boeing is a United States of America based company which was founded by William Edward in 1916, the firm has been dominating the industry since its inception while on the other hand Airbus was founded in 1970 by the European Aeronautic and Space Co. (EADS) with its headquarters in Toulouse, France in other to challenge the monopoly thus far enjoyed by Boeing. The trade disputes or disagreements involving the European Union (EU) as well as the United States (US) take precedence in the rivalry or fight between this two firms. Whilst Airbus receives subsidies in the form of launch aid from the European Union while at the same time Boeing is granted right to use the United States military’s Research and development technology. Owing to the soaring operating fund as well as long product break even time associated in the airplane manufacturing industry, it can be reasonably debated or argued that it will be somehow difficult for each of...

Boeing Strategic Analysis

...------------------------------------------------- INTRODUCTION This case discusses the history of Boeing and salient forces affecting the global aircraft industry, along with the key strategic issues driving Boeing’s competitive strategies. Boeing and Airbus dominate the global aircraft industry, but have very different visions of the future of commercial air travel. Consequently, the strategies they have devised to manage the competitive environment are disparate. The case provides a unique opportunity to explore these differences, how functional strategies support the overall competitive strategy, and the critical decisions now faced by both competitors. The objective of the case study is to evaluate current industry conditions and to make corrective recommendations to improve Boeing’s strategy. The shortcomings of the company’s functional strategies should also be examined in search of measures to improve organizational performance. * Compare the two competitor's strategies. Based on the industry environment, what conclusions can be drawn? * Since Boeing made its decision to pursue a product strategy based on the point-to-point airline business model, what new market conditions have developed? What impact are they likely to have on the company’s success? * Evaluate the pros and cons of Boeing's outsourcing strategy. Is there adequate support for the company's decision to "offload" parts production? * Consider the status of......

...The Boeing Company, Part II Political The Boeing Company is very involved in the politics of the industry. Therefore, Boeing has a Government Operations office located near Washington D.C., and the office serves the company in three ways. One way is that they work with government officials and organizations to protect and advance the company's interests, competitiveness, and reputation. This is very important because as the world’s largest aircraft manufacturer, Boeing does not want to get surprised by a policy or rule that could hurt the company. In addition, another service is to win government contracts. Recently, Boeing won a contract with the U.S. Navy for an order of 20 P-8A airplanes for $2.5 billion (Smith, 2016). Due the location of the office, Boeing was able to secure this contract, as well as many others over the history of the company. Lastly, Boeing and the government works hard to shape public policy issues that impact the company. The office works with public officials across all levels of government, federal, state and local, to work with the government to be compliant. Boeing’s team also works with various third party organizations such as associations, public policy groups, and international organizations (Boeing, 2009). The effective income tax rates for 2014, 2013, 2012 were 23.7%, 26.4% and 34.0%, respectively. Boeing’s 2014 effective tax rate was lower than 2013 primarily due to tax benefits of $265 million related to tax basis adjustments and......

Boeing Strategy

...Boeing |1 Boeing Strategic Analysis Report Professor Jiang Bus 189 Matt Fong Karolyn Vong Kenneth Wong Vivian Li Jae Woo Chae Joseph Eslao Boeing |2 Assessing the Industry 
 Each year the strong economic growth of the U.S. has led to sustained high oil and fuel prices. Between 2003 and 2007, jet fuel expenses have increased dramatically by 15 percent to more than 30 percent of operating cost. Because of this, many airlines are demanding new aircraft that are fuel efficiency in order to help reduce their operational costs. The current trend of increasing fuel prices plays a key role in increasing the current demand for new aircraft or commercial airplanes that are more fuel-efficient. In addition, the rising fuel prices have taken a big effect on the economy. As fuel prices affect consumer goods and spending, leisure travel is expected to decrease, thus affecting the airline industry's bottom line. Furthermore, since the economy has gradually moved into a recession from the effects of rising fuel prices, many airlines that are struggling to stay out of bankruptcy, are looking for more ways to become cost effective. Thus, further fueling the demand for new commercial aircrafts to become more fuelefficient (2007 Annual Report).
 In order to save on costs so that Boeing can provide lower prices to its customers, Boeing and its competitor, Airbus, have both turned to outsourcing. Outsourcing has allowed Boeing to become more competitive. Furthermore...
