Wed, 26 Sep 2018 00:00:00 +0100 Global Military and Public Services Helicopters Market, Forecast to 2026 http://www.frost.com/prod/servlet/sublib/display-report.do?id=MD6A-01-00-00-00 http://www.frost.com/prod/servlet/sublib/display-report.do?id=MD6A-01-00-00-00 After almost 10 years of stagnation and delayed programme in key regions, the market for military and public services helicopters is facing a slow recovery globally, driven primarily by dynamic economies such as Asia-Pacific and Central & South Asia. However, recent political uncertainty amongst leading economies over international trade agreements and subsequent actions leading to economic sanctions and reissuing of trade barriers could impact helicopter production lines and exports. Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) need to consider new strategies for international competitions and retain traditional export customers. Military customers are continually facing fleet shortages primarily due to: Low-paced replacements on account of budget constraints More operational requirements and deployments increasing attrition rates Growing lack of skills, particularly in transitioning economies Introducing the new generation of helicopters will partially remediate these issues as unsatisfactory operational capability levels and availability rates are the main critics brought to new platforms. Moreover, helicopters need to integrate the rise of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) and their increasing operational usage in front lines. Operationally, new employments of helicopters and UAS together in missions are being considered. This will generate new opportunities for helicopter OEMs in terms of new platform developments and designs to enable joint operations. Frost & Sullivan expects that the growth of the military and public services helicopters market will remain slow and sustained for the next 10 years. New developments in rotorcraft will be mainly about reducing accident rates (especially in DVE), catching up with fixed wing aircraft technology (avionics, tactical communications) and embracing UAS operations (MUM-T), whilst tackling asymmetric threats from hostile UAS in asymmetric combat. More players from the commercial helicopter industry are expected to penetrate into the military market at the service levels, beyond MRO and basic logistics support, with new operating business models on offer to relieve military budget pressures. However, such business models (leasing, outsourcing) are expected to be limited to non-critical missions. Another point to note is upcoming high-value helicopter procurement opportunities in third world countries and emerging markets such as India and Brazil to replace the retiring older fleet. Frost & Sullivan has analysed key upcoming programmes in this regard and presents key opportunities that the market will yield over the next ten years.

An Overview of European National Defence Strategies, 2018 http://www.frost.com/prod/servlet/sublib/display-report.do?id=MDAC-01-00-00-00 http://www.frost.com/prod/servlet/sublib/display-report.do?id=MDAC-01-00-00-00 Europe s economic recovery has been slow, countries are trying to reduce their national debt by reducing government spending , and this, in turn, has the potential to influence defence allocation .The economic situation of Cyprus, Italy, Greece, Spain, Portugal, and Ireland continues to be worrying and future bailouts to support these countries might put additional pressure on defence spending. Even against this background, emerging conventional and unconventional security threats and the pressure from NATO and the US to meet the spending commitments might be sufficient to see a considerable defence spending growth in the future. The exit of the UK might result in higher defence spending to conduct operations more independently. The increased tempo of air policing measures carried out by European air forces and the need to maintain high availability of the combat aircraft fleet might result in the military aircraft maintenance, repair, and overhaul business grow in the coming years. With newer and more advanced threats appearing from rival nations such as Russia and China, more funds might be invested in larger European nations into newer capabilities. Central European countries will build their air forces around the purchase/lease of aircraft. Larger countries and Central European countries will look to bolster their air defence equipment, both tactical and missile defence systems, to counter Russian missile deployments. The ground deployments by NATO in the Eastern Flank of Europe would require high-readiness armour and mechanised and artillery forces. Larger countries might invest in a small number of new tanks and artillery. While inducting new infantry fighting vehicles and wheeled personnel carriers, vehicles in storage might be put back into service along with upgrades to existing vehicles, which might create opportunities for repair and upgrades. Central European countries primarily aim at upgrading existing vehicles and adding new wheeled armoured vehicles and procuring used self-propelled howitzers. The cyber and perception warfare might require upgrading cyber defence tools, cyber intelligence gathering, infrastructure, and training. The use of chemical weapons in conflicts in Syria and by ISIL might convince European nations to upgrade their CBRN capabilities; this might open up business avenues in NBC suites, new vehicles, or upgrades to existing vehicles with enhanced NBC reconnaissance capabilities. Larger European nations invest in configurable multi-mission ships for anti-air, anti-submarine , anti-surface warfare. Maritime patrol might be improved through upgrades to the P-3 and Atlantique fleets and procurement of smaller aircraft. The refugee crisis has highlighted the need for enhanced search and rescue and patrol capabilities. Smaller European nations might invest in patrol vessels to replace older vessels.--BEGIN PROMO--
