Military Training Aircraft Market Trends

Middle East and Africa is the largest segment by Region.

  • Military training aircraft accounted for around 22% of the global military aircraft fleet in 2021. The international security horizon in the second half of 2021 was marked by escalating conflicts and geopolitical and border issues, with major confrontations such as between Russia and Ukraine, India and China, and other nations in Asia-Pacific. The armed conflicts and internal security increased global defense expenditures, with nations strengthening their armed forces with new procurements of training aircraft.
  • The world defense expenditure crossed over USD 2 trillion in 2021, with major military powers such as the United States surging their defense budget by 3%, from USD 778 billion in 2020 to over USD 800 billion in 2021. The United States was followed by China, India, Russia, and the United Kingdom, which also increased their defense expenditures by 14%, 5%, 6.8%, and 13% in their respective budgets.
  • With the growth in demand for cost reduction, future trainer aircraft are expected to incorporate systems that reduce procurement and operational costs. With the growing focus on training fighter pilots in aircraft that perform like a fighter, there is a growing requirement for a supersonic trainer jet. The adoption of such aircraft is expected to increase in the future.
  • The active fleet of training aircraft surged by around 6% from 2016 to 2021. Asia-Pacific and North America account for 27% and 24% of the total training aircraft active fleet globally.
