Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – HUD Market in Military Aviation in the US 2015-2019

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the HUD Market in Military Aviation in the US: BAE Systems, Elbit Systems, Esterline Technologies, Honeywell Aerospace, Rockwell Collins, Saab Group and Thales Group

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The HUD market in military aviation in the US is quite mature; therefore, HUD manufacturers are coming up with new and innovative ways to differentiate their products from those of their competitors. For instance, in 2011 Saab and Samtel Display Systems jointly developed RIGS HUDs in India, which are lightweight and cost-effective and can be easily installed in helicopters. In 2012, Esterline Technologies introduced a digital HUD for combat and ISR aircraft that deploys a solid-state display with a 28-degree field of view. BAE Systems developed LiteHUD, which uses waveguide optical technology and is 85% smaller than existing HUDs. The company showcased its DLE HUD, which is specifically designed for helicopters involved in mission-critical operations, at the 2013 Seoul ADEX. Elbit Systems launched SKYLENS, a wearable HUD for commercial and military aviation, in 2014.”

According to the report, the defense budgets of various countries in APAC such as China and India are expected to increase because of the increase in military modernization programs and the growing tension across borders and with other countries. US combat helicopters, and multipurpose military helicopters are in great demand in these regions. For the period 2014-2015, India and China announced defense budgets of $38.35 billion and $132 billion, respectively. Both countries are planning to increase their defense forces. For instance, India is opting for military modernization programs to upgrade and repair its Cold War era equipment and vehicles. This will increase the demand for US aircrafts and helicopter form these regions leading to increase in the fitment rate of HUDs in new aircraft that are more technologically advanced than the previous ones, driving the growth of the HUD market in military aviation in the US.

Further, the report states that reduced military spending worldwide will adversely affect the unit shipments of military aircraft and helicopters during the forecast period.
