Forecast International Doubles Frequency of Updates!

The pandemic has caused so many dramatic changes that breaking news frequently signals changes in the production outlook for defense and aerospace industries worldwide. One of the hardest hit sectors has been civil aviation, particularly the production of large jet airliners, as well as regional transports.

Our Platinum Forecast System, which provides almost instantaneous breaking news and updates to clients around the world, is uniquely equipped to handle this situation well. For other modes of delivery, Forecast International is implementing several notable improvements, as follows, to ensure that clients of all our products are promptly informed of new market developments.

First, to respond to rapidly changing conditions, we have more than doubled the frequency of scheduled updates of all programs.   Going even further, interim updates will regularly be issued as required when conditions within a particular segment warrant an even quicker response.

Second, in response to client requests, the amount of text in the Market Segment Analyses is being significantly reduced, while visuals will provide a more sharply focused assessment of each particular market.  This is in keeping with modern information technology which recognizes that busy industry executives have neither the time nor the wish to plow through pages of background material, but instead seek well-designed and meaningful trend analysis, supported by crisp and clear statements of rationale.  The frequency of Market Segment Analysis updates will also be doubled.

Together, these changes will provide more up-to-date, easily accessible and actionable market intelligence for the Aerospace/Defense markets we cover.  The upgrades will be phased into each of our modes of delivery as expeditiously as possible.

Should any client wish to upgrade to the Platinum Forecast System, we have developed a very cost-effective upgrade. For details, contact our Sales executives at or 1-203-426-0800.

As always, we appreciate your feedback and are confident these changes will enhance your ability to develop marketing strategies at a time of rapid and sometimes dramatic change.
