The market dynamics for helicopters have been complex & difficult of-late with the military helicopters segment facing continued budgetary pressures across most traditional markets with new procurement activity mostly limited to fleet replacement with preference for proven, in-production & derivative platforms as against scratch up programs besides continued technology development over new, radical & next generation programs & platforms like the S-97 Raider & the V-280 Valor. The commercial helicopter segment, too, has been facing headwinds of-late with global civil helicopter shipments contracting by 24.7% in 2014 while total billings registered a 7.5% year on year decline in 2014 standing at $4.9 billion.
However, the imminent, significant replacement demand for ageing military helicopters emanating from traditional as well as emerging markets and continued, strong R&D activity driven technological developments & innovations are likely to be the key demand drivers over medium term for military helicopters & rotorcrafts despite ongoing, significant pressure on defense budgets across most traditional markets. The development of compound helicopter platforms, especially, the self-funded X2 program by Sikorsky, that is evolving rapidly as the S-97 Raider & forms the backbone of the SB>1 Defiant for the JMR-FVL program, and X3 by Airbus Helicopters; have already heralded the beginning of a new technological era as well as leap for military helicopters, in terms, of operational spectrum & capabilities.
