Aerospace Manufacturing in Mexico: A Taking Off Industry
The aerospace cluster in Tijuana has seen great growth in the last 40 years. Due to the industrial space and available parks, 38 companies have chosen Tijuana to set up, and have operated successfully, obtaining a continuous material reception and delivery flow because of the strategic location of the city, which allows direct communication with national and international ports, as well as with the United States.
Tijuana hosts four times the aerospace sector in Mexico. For the city, this cluster represents a very valuable source of employment.
The increase of aerospace companies in Tijuana is explained, on the one hand, by the manufacturing, assembly and processing quality of Mexican workforce. The US quality standards, for example, are among the highest, but Mexican manufacturing meets the requirements, which makes it even more valuable.
Currently, the city has an available industrial space of 3.7 square feet, so the potential for aerospace growth is still ascending.
From multinationals to small firms, aerospace companies have relied on Tijuana to raise their manufacturing output to the top.
A clear forecast
Forbes estimates that air traffic will increase at an annual rate of 4.7% over the next 20 years. The Mexican Secretariat of Economy estimates that by 2020, the aerospace industry in Mexico will occupy one of the first 10 places worldwide, which is a good reason for starting a business in Mexico.
