Industry outlook

TXT is a beneficiary of the trend to outsource elements of IT and engineering, which gives the customer greater flexibility on cost and better access to specialist skills. Its main focus is on the aerospace and aviation market, where the rapid pace of innovation, combined with increasing regulation, drives growth in R&D. It also serves the Italian banking market, where the emergence of fintech companies is driving innovation and regulation is increasing the need for software quality assurance.
