Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “Annual Strategy Guide – 2016 – World’s Top 6 Military Helicopter Manufacturers – Airbus Group, AgustaWestland, Bell, Boeing, Russian Helicopetrs, Sikorsky” report to their offering.

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.
