Global Attack Helicopter Market 2017-2021

Global Attack Helicopter Market 2017-2021

About Attack Helicopters

Attack helicopters or gunships are designed to carry heavy armaments such as anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs) like Hellfire, auto canons, unguided rockets, heavy machine guns, and air-to-air missiles. The air-to-air missiles carried by them are mostly deployed for self-defense purposes. In addition, attack helicopters attack enemy tanks, flanks, and rear, which provides strategic support and assistance to the ground forces to maneuver and engage with hostile forces. In recent years, the threats imposed on civilian life have increased rapidly, particularly due to the rise in terrorism and cross-border insurgent activities. Therefore, development and procurement of attack helicopters have been increased in recent years to have a highly efficient and effective aerial attack force.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global attack helicopter market to grow at a CAGR of 5.21% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Attack Helicopter Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global attack helicopter market: Airbus Helicopters, Bell Helicopter, Boeing, and HAL

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Denel, Leonardo – Finmeccanica, MD Helicopters, Russian Helicopters, and Turkish Aerospace Industries

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “3D printing or additive manufacturing is an evolving technology that helps the users to design and develop things in an innovative way and surpasses the conventional methods like computerized numerical control cutting, mold manufacturing, or canvas printing. 3D printing is economical and allows quick design and rapid changes of internal features in a military aircraft, which was not possible with the traditional manufacturing methods. It can print electronics directly onto 3D surfaces such as on an aircraft wing, which also helps in reducing the size and weight of the attack helicopter.”

According to the report, many countries are modernizing their airborne defense and attack units by upgrading their fleet of attack helicopters. The increase in technological developments of associated components and weapons are driving the need for upgraded platforms. This will simultaneously boost the military airborne platform market and enable greater dominance of countries over the skies.

Further, the report states that military drones have gained a wide scale popularity in recent years owing to their advanced technology. Artificial intelligence technology has developed to such a level that the deployment of autonomous systems has become equivalent to the new revolution in warfare.
