Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “North America’s Top 7 Armored Vehicle Manufacturers – Annual Strategy Dossier – 2016 – AM General, BAE Systems Inc., GDLS, Lockheed Martin, Navistar Defense, Oshkosh Corporation, Textron Systems “ company profile to their offering.

This evolution of threat landscape drove the development of a new class of vehicles, i.e. MRAPs, which have proved to be an effective response to a serious threat from IEDs, RPGs and ATGMs to armor survivability; which collectively have questioned the very raison d’etre of previous generation light & medium armor in a completely altered threat landscape.

This pivotal alteration in threat landscape has thus been the key driver of replacement demand for the ageing armored vehicles fleet globally dating back to the cold war era. Additionally, strategic changes in as well as evolution of the traditional world order & geo-political dynamics marked by the resurgence of Russia with the impressive showcasing of military capabilities across Ukraine & Syria and the emergence of China as a key regional economic and military power in the Asia-Pacific region have already started driving up defense budgets across most parts of the world.

The United States Army is planning a comprehensive upgrade of its combat vehicles fleet under its latest modernization strategy with focus on significant overall capability upgrades over existing platforms, pursuit of incremental performance improvements across the fleet along-with replacements & new platform acquisitions across its Infantry, Stryker and Armor Brigade Combat Teams (BCT) over medium term. Award of initial stages funding to some key Army programs over the recent years, which include, JLTV, AMPV,M2/M3 Bradley ECP upgrades, M109A7 Paladin & Stryker upgrades highlight the priority being placed on bridging the capabilities gaps.

Further, a number of new acquisition programs are likely to be initiated over near to medium term with focus on recapitalizing core assets of the Infantry & Armor BCTs. A broad range of planned capability upgrades, too, are likely to be significant drivers of growth over medium term. The Canadian Army, too, has been looking for capability expansion & upgrades with planned pursuit of modernization programs like LAV III upgrades and new programs like TAPV while actively scouting for potential M113 replacements.
