Rapidly changing global security scenario and the growing importance of unconventional missions and urban warfare have resulted in change of roles for helicopters in the modern warfare strategies. Unlike their traditional roles, rotorcrafts are being used as part of the comprehensive mission parameters, which calls for integration of advanced and multiple capabilities in rotorcrafts.

As the existing helicopters are unable to fulfill these roles, countries are focusing on either developing or procuring helicopters with multiple mission modes, which is currently driving the demand for military helicopters across the world. Apart from this, growing disputes over maritime borders and offshore natural resources are the primary drivers of the growing demand for maritime helicopters with multi-mission capabilities.

Despite facing financial constraints, major defense spenders are driven by the growing need for the helicopters with advanced capabilities and challenges from internal and external security threats.


The recent killing of Abu Sayyaf in 2015, who was one of the high level operatives of ISIS, possibly using an attack variant of UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter has proven rotorcraft's role to be pivotal in military operations worldwide; governments are therefore taking note and reassessing their efficacy. Moreover, in 2010, the Pentagon invested twice as much of its US$808 million aviation science and technology budget on improving turbine engines than it did on all rotorcraft science and technology, and two and a half times as much on fixed-wing aircraft.

Asia Pacific region is expected to account for the highest spending on rotorcraft globally, accounting for 37.2% of the market, followed by North America, which will account for 30.5%. China's growing assertiveness in territorial disputes with its neighbors, an ongoing arms race among Asian countries, and strong economic growth are the primary drivers of the region's rotorcraft market, which is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 3.91%, to reach US$9.7 Billion by 2022.

Europe, which is the third largest market, is emerging from an economic crisis and is thus expected to witness only marginal growth over the forecast period; the region is expected to account for 17.1% of the total market. The Middle East region is expected to be one of the fastest growing markets for rotorcraft over the forecast period, with a CAGR of 5.37%, due to the huge demand from various countries buoyed by strong economic growth and robust modernization plans.


- The global military rotorcraft market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.14% over the forecast period driven by the need to replace aging fleets and enhance capabilities pertaining to disaster relief operations.
- Governments across the world are increasingly following a procurement pattern that favors the procurement of multi-mission and maritime helicopters. In today’s volatile economic climate when major defense spending nations are cutting down on their budgets, governments are more likely to acquire helicopters with multiple functionalities such as ground attack, air assault, cargo, surveillance, rescue operations, humanitarian aid, and troop transport.

Therefore, the multi-mission and maritime helicopters segment will account for 43.7% of the total global rotorcraft market over the forecast period, followed by attack, transport, and training helicopters.
