NEW YORK, Aug. 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The global helicopter market is currently facing a double whammy with the military helicopter segment impacted significantly by continued defense budgetary pressures & cuts underway across most traditional markets while the recent slide in global crude oil prices has been impacting the demand for new civil helicopters and activity levels of existing fleets engaged in the offshore oil & gas exploration sector globally. The situation has impacted the industry OEMs significantly which had been focusing on & working towards strengthening the civil helicopter segment to partially offset the impact of budgetary cuts on the military segment. However, the medium to long term view of the market is promising with presence of strong fundamentals & long term, sustainable growth drivers.
The market for military helicopters is on the verge of a technological generational leap with next generation compound helicopters & tiltrotorcrafts heralding the advent of a new era that is likely to witness a significant expansion of the operational spectrum, capabilities & performance threshold of these machines which is likely to eventually redefine their role besides enhancing overall effectiveness in conducting a wide range of military missions & operations. There are a number of strong, sustainable, long term growth drivers for military helicopters globally despite continued pressures likely on defense spending over near to medium term across most traditional markets.
The civil helicopter market, on the contrary, has grown almost three fold in size over the past decade driven by an expansion of the degree as well as scope of utilization of civil helicopters across a range of user segments and the introduction of new civil helicopter platforms by the industry OEMs. Further, the development & commercialization of tiltrotorcrafts & compound helicopters for the civil segment by the industry; is likely to transform the market landscape significantly over medium term. However, continued slump in global crude oil prices presents significant challenges & near term pressures for the offshore oil & gas exploration sector with corresponding, commensurate impact on activity, new acquisition plans & fleet utilization level across civil helicopter operators.
