The International Air Transport Association (IATA) made some encouraging projections, possibly driven by the improving trends in global air traffic, which should bode well for commercial jet makers. Solid deliveries, expected to be received by airlines next year, surely boost the prospects of jet manufacturers. An expansionary U.S. defense budget should benefit defense-oriented companies. However, the U.S. defense electronics supply chain disruption due to the COVID-19 pandemic remains a threat for stocks in the aerospace-defense space. Nevertheless, solid air traffic projections should keep investors interested in this industry. The frontrunners in the aerospace-defense industry are Lockheed Martin LMT, Northrop Grumman NOC and General Dynamics GD.
