NEW YORK, Aug. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

World%s Top 6 Helicopter & Rotorcraft Manufacturers - Competitive Benchmarking, SWOT, Strategies & Plans, Trends & Outlook - Airbus Helicopters, AgustaWestland, Bell, Sikorsky, Boeing, Russian Helicopters

The report provides a comprehensive Competitive Benchmarking & SWOT analysis on the World's Top 6 helicopter & rotorcraft manufacturers besides providing detailed analysis of their Strategies, Plans, Strategic Priorities & Overall Strategy Focus against the backdrop of continued budgetary pressures across traditional markets impacting defense segment while civil helicopter segment continues with its steady growth momentum driven primarily by offshore oil & gas exploration segment.

The prevailing budgetary pressures across most traditional markets have impacted development & acquisition plans for new, scratch up helicopter & rotorcraft programs with growing preference for acquisition of existing, in-production, proven, cost-effective & low-risk platforms & programs as highlighted by the DoD's plans to procure UH-72A Lakotas for training role instead of a completely new program. The Armed Aerial Scout (AAS) program too witnessed an internal reshuffle with the existing AH-64E Apaches of the Air Guards to be utilized by the Army for scout role. The industry however has also witnessed significant developments on some big ticket acquisition plans in the meanwhile, irrespective of the funds crunch, which augurs well for the industry over medium term. Some such key developments include: U.S. Navy's Marine One helicopter program based on the S-92 platform worth $1.24 billion, USAF's Combat Rescue Helicopter (CRH) program worth $1.28 billion and the acquisition of 16 AW101s by Norway worth €1 billion for SAR role.

The civil helicopter & rotorcraft segment, on the contrary, continues to tread steadily on growth path with ongoing activity in the offshore oil & gas exploration sector across most traditional and new exploration sites globally. Almost all key industry OEMs have introduced and are in the process of developing new, scratch-up programs & platforms offering significant technological enhancements transpiring into enhanced performance, safety and operating economics. The recent spate of product portfolio renewals by OEMs is aimed at capitalizing on significant replacement demand likely to originate from the sector over near to medium term. Key program introductions by the OEMs include: EC175 & EC225e by Airbus Helicopters, AW169 & AW189 by AgustaWestland, Bell 525 Relentless and Sikorsky's S-92.
