The Global Civil Helicopter Market is on the recovery course after facing headwinds for a number of consecutive years starting 2014 with the plummeting of global crude oil prices which precipitated the crisis in the energy sector and led to sinking of the demand for new civil helicopters & fleet utilization levels of in-service fleet for transportation to the offshore oil & gas rigs. The market for civil helicopters is likely to bottom out in 2018 with fleet utilization rates across operators picking up for the first half of 2018 as global crude oil prices resurge driven by contrived supply side constraints & pressures. However, the civil helicopters deliveries are likely to remain flat for 2018 and pick up only from 2019 onwards; despite decent activity & demand from the EMS, Parapublic & VIP transport market segments; in a complex, uncertain, challenging & difficult global macroeconomic environment that is likely to stay over near term.

Amongst regions, China is spearheading the global demand growth for civil helicopters, led by the development of its EMS market, and is poised to become the world’s leading market for civil helicopters over medium term. Amongst OEMs, Airbus Helicopters continues to lead & further tighten its grip on the global civil helicopter market with almost 50% unit delivery share for 2017 and a robust order book position while being propelled by a favorable trend & growing preference for militarized variants of civil helicopter platforms globally. However, the H225 Super Puma program, its traditional workhorse in the offshore oil & gas segment, continues to be the biggest concern area for Airbus over safety & reliability issues with the program marred by a series of helicopter crashes over years and Airbus facing lawsuits & claims from operators. Further, the offshore market is witnessing a shift towards the super medium helicopter segment which further compounds the issues for Airbus. 

Going forward, the U.S. Navy’s plan to replace its TH-57 Trainer rotorcraft with a commercial, off the shelf solution is likely to be a key program of contention for Airbus Helicopters, Bell & Leonardo with the trio fielding their respective contenders for the potentially significant growth avenue in a highly strategic market. Also, the likely radical transformation of personal mobility with the upcoming age of eVTOL based air transportation systems will herald a new era of growth for the industry which is gearing up rapidly with the development of requisite technologies.
