AAA Air Support Is International – Aerospace Industry MexicoAidan
AAA Air Support continues to develop, expand, and establish strong and vital ties with the growing international aerospace industry; building a highly commendable reputation among various members of the aerospace field.
Having established their solid leadership in the aerospace market here in the United States, AAA Air Support continues their growth making great strides in the global aerospace aviation markets.
Among the various international aerospace customers, Mexico is an emerging leader in creating aerospace clusters; groups of manufacturers, thriving as parts suppliers, logistics, training, and various support organizations.
These groups work together to meet the requirements of the international aerospace industry within their own country. In Mexico, according to one source, the key clusters are based in Sonora, Baja California, Chihuahua, Nuevo Leon, and Queretaro.
A primary reason for Mexico’s emergence as a leader in the aerospace manufacturing sector, is the fact that Mexico’s labor costs are 40 to 50 percent lower than those in the United States. It has also been shown recently that, as wages in Mexico grow, their overall productivity is on the increase.
A Brief Look at the Aerospace Industry in Mexico
According to some recent figures available from the U.S. International Trade Administration, in 2020, it was estimated that the Mexico aerospace industry received almost USD$2 billion in imports from the U.S. alone. Their total exports for that year were estimated to be close to USD$3.6 billion.
The U.S. Department of Commerce reports that,
“The aerospace industry is relatively young in Mexico, but its roots are deep. In the State of Baja California, for example, one firm has been in the market for more than 60 years, and aerospace is one of its leading business divisions. Mexico’s aerospace industry is an excellent example of growth, foreign investment attraction, and job creation.
Based on the most recent available official figures from the Mexican Aerospace Industry Federation (Federación Mexicana de la Industria Aerospacial or FEMIA), the industry experienced 14 percent average annual export growth from 2004–2019, was responsible for the creation of more than 63,000 jobs, and accounted for up to USD 6 billion in accumulated direct foreign investment (2007–2017).”
In addition, Mexico’s aerospace sector has grown from just 100 manufacturing firms and organizations in 2004, to almost 370 by 2020, according to FEMIA estimates. Today these enterprises are comprised primarily of manufacturers, maintenance-repair-overhaul facilities (MROs), technical schools, research centers, universities, and related service providers.
These categories break down as follows:
- 79 percent of all firms are manufacturers
- 10 percent focus on design and engineering
- 11 percent are in MRO services
