Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Helicopter Market 2018-2022

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global helicopter market: Airbus, Bell Helicopter Textron, Boeing, Leonardo, Lockheed Martin, and Russian Helicopters.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend affecting this market is development of 3D-printing soluble cores for rotorcraft blade prototyping tooling.” For instance, in 2015, Automated Dynamics along with Stratasys developed cores for rotorcraft blade prototyping tooling. This process allows the application of different materials such as composites, metals, and polymers.

According to the report, one driver influencing this market is the advancement in avionics leading to enhanced safety features. NASA developed an automatic ground collision avoidance system that constantly predicts the trajectory of the rotorcraft through the terrain profile. Such advancements ensure safe operation of rotorcraft.

Further, the report states that one challenge affecting this market is the barriers in adoption of new technology and equipment. The stringent regulatory norms formulated by government agencies and aviation authorities acts as barriers against the adoption of new technologies.
