Military helicopters have been an integral component of the force structure of armed forces globally and with increasing threat from terrorism & extremism; their significance for carrying out anti-insurgency based operations has grown further manifold in a complex, challenging, uncertain & rapidly evolving global geo-political environment. The demand & acquisition scenario for military equipment has been impacted of-late by defense budgetary cuts underway across most traditional markets; however, defense spending is likely to witness a slight to moderate uptick over near to medium term globally with increasing complexity of security challenges, resurgence of conventional state based threats & a wearing down of traditional world order. The latest U.K. Strategic Defense & Security review 2015-2025 clearly points towards the same with planned reinforcement & expansion of Air Combat, Airborne Strike and Maritime Surveillance capabilities. The review also places enhanced focus on Special Forces with focus on expansion of their capabilities & asset base with GBP 2 billion worth of planned investments. France, too, will need to bite the bullet & focus on plugging the security & capability gaps. The country announced plans earlier in the year to increase defense spending by Euro 3.8 billion over the next 4 years which is likely to be further ramped up following the recent terrorist attacks. In the United States, large, big ticket defense programs, which include, Long Range Strike Bomber (LRS-B), Joint Multi Role – Future Vertical Lift (JMR-FVL) & Next Generation Jet Engine Program are likely to be the key & drive growth over medium to long term. However, the Asia-Pacific region is projected to spearhead global demand for military helicopters over the next decade with a number of states poised to replace their ageing helicopter platforms as they expand military capabilities to counter growing threat, assertiveness & military build-up by Russia & China.
Thus, the medium to long term view of the military helicopters market is promising with presence of strong fundamentals and long term, sustainable growth drivers & enablers spearheaded by technological evolution & R&D activity amid a backdrop of growing conventional & hybrid threat perceptions and complex security challenges. The development of next-generation compound helicopters & tilt-rotorcrafts has already heralded the advent of a new era that is likely to witness a significant expansion of the operational spectrum, capabilities & performance threshold of these machines which is likely to eventually transform & redefine their role besides enhancing overall effectiveness for conducting a wide range of military missions & operations while offering optimized operating costs & total cost of ownership.
