TechBA Aerospace has collaborated at different service levels with more than 70 Mexican small and medium sized (SMEs), specifically in their integration into global aerospace supply chains.
By 2020 it is expected 350 companies will integrate the aerospace industry in Mexico, which would represent 12 billion dollars in exports and the generation of 110 thousand jobs, positioning Mexico as one of the 10 countries with more exports in this industry.
TechBA Aerospace has worked with 30% of the companies in the aerospace sector in Mexico and has identified capabilities in other Mexican companies that it seeks to support through its global network of allies. With this global network, TechBA observes trends and challenges faced by OEms, Tier 1 and general decision makers in the global sector, which TechBA shares with entrepreneurs who are part of this portfolio.
The aerospace industry represents secure contracts for 15 or even 20 years. TechBA Aerospace estimates a demand of 50 billion dollars in supply from major manufactures such as Boeing. Mexico is well positioned to absorb 15% of this supply shortage. It is currently ranked 15th in the global aerospace industry supplier list, with the goal of becoming one of the top ten suppliers by 2020.
TechBA Aerospace works in coordination with FEMIA to help integrate more competitive value chains into the aerospace industry in Mexico.
Among the benefits received by companies that join this effort to develop aerospace industry suppliers is knowledge of the main trends in the industry as well as the steps to become a supplier.
With TechBA Agroindustry, companies know how to apply cuttingedge technologies to real cases, our program contributes to the adoption of concepts as broad as Food industry 4.0 that is disruptive and fundamental in the current and future context. Given the trends in digitalization for the food industry, its impact on manufacturing processes and cooperation in the entire value chain, TechBA Agroindustry has become the option for companies in this sector that seek to respond with opportunity to the new challenges posed by market.
Mexico is positioned as one of the 12 food producing powers, represents 285 million tons, has 10 Free Trade Agreements and 11% of employment in the country is concentrated in agri-food activities.
It is estimated that by 2050 it will be necessary to increase 70% food production which must be sustainable taking special care of resources such as water on soil.
In the automotive industry there are opportunities to integrate capabilities in research and training activities aligned with the needs of this industry.
TechBA Automotive promotes the integration of key players for the development of different initiatives that support the growth of this industry through the creation of networks and collaboration among companies, universities, research and development centers, suppliers and other organizations.
In order to reinforce the productive capacities of this sector in specific regions, activities such as:
- Identification of technological development opportunities.
- Strengthening the innovation capacity of companies.
- Development of specialized human resources that respond to the needs of the sector.

It is expected that by 2028 in Mexico, the installed capacity for electricity generation from renewable energies will increases by 19,761 MW, of which it is estimated that wind and hydraulic energy sources will have the largest share, with 59% and 21% respectively.
The country currently has more than 230 power plants in operation and constuction for the generation of electric power through renewable energy sources; Oaxaca and Veracruz are the states with the highest number of wind and biomasss projects.
Among the factors that will drive the use of renewable energy in the country is the commitment established to increase energy generation and used by 35% by 2024, 37% by 2030 and 50% by 2050, as well as the impulse that The Energy Reform will give to the production of clean energy. Through this reform and its instruments, such as auctions of longterm electricity supply contracts and Clean Energy Certificates (CEL`S), 65 new clean generation plants are available (46 solar and 19 wind) are being developed in 17 States, with a total investment of 8.6 million dollars.
Given the dynamic and global manufacturing context, it´s important to support the companies established in Mexico to compete globally, seek permanence of these businesses and encourage new investments that impact the economic development of regions and sectors at a national level.
The Coordination of Heavy Light Industries works with companies and industries that generate added value through the design, development, manufacture, assembly, measurement or packaging of products and services towards the main global or regional supply chains.
To support the development and growth of companies, the following activities are carried out:
- Supplier development strategies
- Business implementation and certification programs
- Entrepreneurial and technical capacity building
- Planning strategies, innovation and market diversification
- Training of specialized human resources
An example of the foregoing are the supplier development programs focused on automotive, energy and metalworking chains at the national level, where the main objective has been the increase in the levels of productivity, quality, service and added value in their products and / or services, which supports their insertion and sales strategy.
