Helicopters play a crucial role in the military helicopter market for armed forces throughout the world, helping ground and naval troops within varying combat and humanitarian scenarios. The extensive range of helicopters produced worldwide reflects their diverse use within military operations, and as such, the military helicopter market is one characterised by dynamism and response to emerging operational challenges. The military helicopter market is to continue its popularity and it's expected that market value will reach $19.4bn in 2012.
Given the importance of helicopters to militaries, the military helicopters market is expected to remain vigorous over the next decade, as multiple nations seek to upgrade their air capabilities. The US predictably spends the most on the military helicopter market as these aircraft are in great demand within its military operations.
On the other hand, the end of combat in Iraq in 2011 and the planned withdrawal from Afghanistan in 2014 could indicate a dampening in demand within the military helicopter market. In addition, there is currently strong pressure on the defence budgets of many countries, particularly those in Europe and North America.
Away from Western military helicopter markets, several countries in Asia and the Middle East are embarking on significant military helicopter acquisition and upgrade programmes that will boost overall global demand for rotorcraft.
