Global Military VTOL Aircraft Market 2016-2020

Key players in the global military VTOL aircraft market: Aurora Flight Sciences, Bell Helicopter, Boeing, and Lockheed Martin.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: “One trend in the market is military VTOL aircraft inspired from commercial personal VTOL jets. Currently, having an aircraft for personal use is a growing trend, mostly in North American and European countries. This is driving the VTOL aircraft market as most of the customers are preferring an aircraft with low fuel consumption that do not require any extra place for runway and have low operational cost. Additionally, the growing focus on using environmentally friendly platforms are driving the market. This technology, which is currently used for commercial purposes, is also driving the military applications VTOL aircraft, as it allows VTOL aircraft hovering.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is arms race among countries to develop advanced aircraft. Aircraft and helicopters are largely used for aerial combat as well as for support missions. Hence, most nations are investing a considerable portion of their budget for the development and upgrade of these platforms. It has been observed that focus by any specific country on development of a particular platform is likely to push other countries toward the same direction. This is mainly because of the growing arms race among countries to attain military supremacy. Although initially, only the US, Russia, and a few other countries were developing and using VTOL aircraft, over the past few years, a number of other countries have shown interest in procuring VTOL jets. This is driving the overall of market heavy-lift VTOL, tiltrotor, and other VTOL aircraft.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is technological roadblocks. Growing technological advancements have considerably improved the aerodynamic performance of VTOL aircraft. Nevertheless, there are few constraints that are challenging.Forward flight poses the biggest challenge for VTOL aircraft. Owing to heavy payloads, these VTOL aircraft cannot generate enough lift. This is because of the low transition between horizontal and vertical thrust, which causes the weight of the aircraft to exert pressure and result in high drag, retarding the jet. Also, the aircraft's speed and hover are conceptually conflicting parameters. If the aircraft hover time has to be increased, the speed of the aircraft is compromised and vice-versa. Thus, it is impossible to achieve efficient speed as well as hover.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
