The Military Helicopter Market 2012-2022

  enlarge


Military helicopters play a vital role for armed forces throughout the world, aiding ground and naval troops within varying combat and humanitarian scenarios. The extensive range of helicopters produced worldwide reflects their diverse use within military operations, and as such, the military helicopter market is one characterised by dynamism and response to emerging operational challenges. Visiongain has determined that that value of the military helicopter market will reach $19.4bn in 2012.

Given the importance of helicopters to militaries, a robust market for military helicopters is expected over the next decade, as multiple nations seek to upgrade their air capabilities. The US predictably spends the most on military helicopters as these aircraft are in great demand in its military operations. However, the end of combat operations in Iraq in 2011 and the planned withdrawal from Afghanistan in 2014 could signal a dampening in demand. In addition, there is currently strong pressure on the defence budgets of many countries, particularly those in Europe and North America. In these countries, helicopters are still expected to receive priority funding, yet long term military spending can often be delayed or amended in order to suit short term financial requirements.

Away from Western military helicopter markets, several countries in Asia and the Middle East are embarking on significant military helicopter acquisition and upgrade programmes that will boost overall global demand for rotorcraft. Nations such as South Korea, India, China, Turkey and Saudi Arabia have major plans to develop their helicopter fleets, and spending within these national helicopter markets is expected to reflect the emerging growth and military power of the Asian continent.
