Helicopters Market by Engine Type (Twin Engine, Single Engine), by Type (Military, Civil & Commercial), by Application (Attack Helicopters, Transport Helicopters), by Region (North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Middle East and Africa, South America) – Global Forecast (2020 to 2027)

Helicopters Market - Global Industry Analysis and Forecast 2020 to 2027

Helicopters Market: Summary

The Global Helicopters Market is projected to reach a value of over USD 41.3 billion by 2027 at a CAGR of around 11%.

The Helicopters is the type of an aircraft, which obtain lift as well as propulsion from one or more sets of horizontally revolving overhead rotors. It use rotating, or spinning, wings which is called as blades to fly. Whereas, it is being used for flying ambulances to carry patients as well as to move troops and get supplies to ships for military forces. Also, it helps to access to remote location, mountain areas and provides faster mobilization than fixed-wing craft.

Hence, it benefits the air transportation to enable the capability to transport goods to the location which is being difficult to access using other means of transportation. These advantages may lead to increase the growth of the helicopters market in the forecast period.

Helicopters Market: Drivers & Restraints

Market Driver:

  • Growing Demand for Lightweight Helicopters

With the growing demand for lightweight helicopters is witness to fuel the growth of the market in the forecast period. Whereas, in 2019 it has been identified the demand for the light single engine helicopters is growing tremendously in the region such as North America, Asia Pacific, as well as in Middle East and Africa. Also, the growing technological advancement in the defense sector will lead to enhance the helicopter performance and the ability to improve the military and commercial helicopters.

Hence, the operational efficiency as well as the fuel saving are the one of the major focus areas of the helicopter manufactures. Also, the manufacturers are increasing their effort to enhance the capabilities and performance of the helicopter by reducing the overall weight and by making its more cost effectiveness. These may also result to reduce the fuel consumption, hence it projected to enhance the growth of the market in the forecast period.

Market Restraints:

  • Strict Regulatory Rule for the Manufacture

One of the major key concern of the helicopters market is strict regulatory rule for the manufacturing which may restrain the growth of the market. Whereas, aerospace sector is majorly regulated as there is a high risks associated with the flight operations. Also the components as well as the system of the helicopters has to go under several quality check and strict testing to ensure the safety.

Hence, helicopter systems and component has to cross the regulatory specifications of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) to make sure the safety of helicopter operations as well as the control risks associated with defective components. These may lead to create a challenging factor for the growth of the market in the projected period.
