Editorial note on the aerospace ecosystem development

Suman Thota

It is expected that the aerospace production industry will continue to expand. As demand increases, the existing global aerospace ecosystem is being forced to develop and adapt to new challenges. Its evolution is demonstrated by new entrants in the aerospace manufacturing industry and the creation of new ecosystems. It is thus important to understand how the aerospace ecosystem has developed in order to prepare optimal conditions for its development. Economic and network science approaches have been successfully combined in recent studies to map, analyse, and forecast the evolution of industrial ecosystems.
