Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Helicopter Market in APAC 2015-2019

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Helicopter Market in APAC: AgustaWestland, Airbus Helicopters, Bell Helicopters, Russian Helicopters and Sikorsky Aircraft

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Aerospace Industrial Development, Aviation Industry Corporation of China, Bristow, Changhe Aircraft Industries, China Southern Airlines, Enstrom Helicopter, Fuji Heavy Industries, Hindustan Aeronautics, Indonesian Aerospace, Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Korea Aerospace Industries, MD Helicopters, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Pacific Aerospace, Qingdao Haili Helicopters, Robinson Helicopter, Safran, Turbomeca and Weststar Aviation Services

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “APAC is witnessing increasing growth of light helicopters in the ambulance services and VIP transport service segments. It was found that 29% of the civil helicopters across the globe are used for law enforcement and EMS; however, this segment is very minor in countries such as China, India, and Middle Eastern countries. Therefore, manufacturers such as MD Helicopters, Bell Helicopter Textron, Eurocopter, and many others are struggling to attain a share in the EMS helicopter segment in the APAC market.”

According to the report, because of the increased utilization rate (helicopter fleet utilization) and the increased helicopter replacement cycle, the purchase interest for helicopters in the civil aviation sector is trending up. Some of the applications of helicopters in the civil aviation sector include offshore logistics, corporate usage, training, tourism, firefighting, and law enforcement. The cost of civil helicopters is less than defense helicopters; however, the overall revenue contribution of this segment is higher, because of the higher demand.Further, the report states that the lack of helipads and landing infrastructure are hindering the growth of this market in this region.
