The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which industrials editor/analyst Isaac Pino discusses topics across the investing world.

In this edition, Isaac discusses three critical factors that will drive growth for Dow Jones Industrial component United Technologies. Commercial aerospace demand is outpacing GDP growth around the world, which has fueled extraordinary demand for airplane components and jet engines. To broaden its product portfolio, United Technologies recently acquired airplane equipment maker Goodrich in what became the largest transaction in the company's history. The core businesses where United Tech is growing include high-margin businesses with significant barriers to entry, which will enhance margins for the company going forward.

International expansion remains critical for United Technologies, but there are other American companies making waves in foreign markets. If the trend continues, investors could be looking at internationally fueled new stock highs.
