Advertising Campaign: Boeing Aviation By: Mikhail Fedorov and Tyler Keen

Boeing - The largest aerospace company in the world and the leading jetliner, defense, space, and security systems manufacturer.

SWOT Analysis:

Strengths - Large base, One of the oldest aerospace companies/manufacturers. Experienced different markets not visibly monopolizing

Weaknesses - No significant change in models in planes, manufacturing location loyalty (Two manufacturing warehouses)

Opportunities - Growing interest in air travel, population and customer base increasing. New tech, autonomous flight and military growth

Threats - Airbus and other plane manufacturers catching up or taking over plane market. Defense contracts lost to Lockheed Martin

Competitive Environment:

Airbus - The second leading airliner manufacturer, Airbus, is catching up on Boeing's Sales and has been securing over 50% of jet orders for the decade. Though Boeing leads in numbers by planes in use, it only has that advantage over Airbus because of its company being around longer by 20 years. Airbus is growing faster than Boeing in the international market, and soon could take over.

By generating a sense of service and appreciation for our consumers and intriguing them with our new technology, we can make them interested to support airlines and services that use our aircraft, therefore creating a chain reaction to the travel providers who will buy from us.
