The long-term impact on Defense Aerospace comes from the reduction in program funding as a consequence of the recession resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. The extent of the recession is not yet known, but is expected to be deeper and longer than the Global Financial Crisis of 2008-2009. This will hit Defense budgets, significantly reducing program budget in many cases.

Though the Defense Aerospace sector is significantly more insulated than the Commercial Aerospace industry, the majority of Primes are in both sectors, with the commercial portion typically much larger than the Defense portion in revenue terms. Major primes in the sector do not have consistent exposure to COVID-19 fallout. The diverging positions of Boeing and Airbus point to further nuance in market impact. Lockheed Martin, for example, has limited commercial aerospace exposure, whereas Textron is reliant on Commercial work for 76% of revenue using 2019 figures.
