Detailed PESTLE Analysis of Raytheon Company



This section is available only in the 'Complete Report' on purchase.


1. Competition may reduce revenues and market share and limit future market opportunities: Increased competition in Raytheon’s core markets as a result of continued defence industry consolidation, including cross-border consolidation of competition, and the expansion of competitors’ capabilities throughout the supply chain through vertical integration, each of which has enabled companies to enhance their competitive position against us. Additionally, some customers, including the DoD, are increasingly turning to commercial contractors, rather than traditional defence contractors, for information technology and other support work. All this will result in declines in revenues and market share.

2. Issues with component availability, subcontractor performance: These issues may affect company’s ability to manufacture and deliver its products and services. It is dependent upon the delivery by suppliers of materials and the assembly by subcontractors of major components and subsystems used in its products in a timely and satisfactory manner and in full compliance with applicable terms and conditions. Some products require relatively scarce raw materials. It is also subject to specific procurement requirements that limit the types of materials it uses and may affect the supply chain process. In addition, it has to conduct diligence and provide disclosure regarding the use of certain minerals, known as conflict minerals, which may impact its procurement practices and increase costs.

1. Protection of intellectual property rights: Due to threat to intellectual property rights which many companies are unable to protect; could affect its competitiveness. Raytheon owns many U.S. and foreign patents and patent applications, and have rights in unpatented know-how, data, software, trademarks and copyrights. In many of Raytheon’s patents and intellectual property the U.S government has its licences. These are utilized in government contracts. However the government may authorize others including its competitors to use such patents and intellectual property for government and other purposes. Hence in the future to avoid the breach of information and patents it would have to enter into confidentiality and intellectual property assignment agreements with employees and into non-disclosure agreements with its suppliers and appropriate customers.
