Comparative SWOT & Strategy Focus - 2014-2017 - World's 6 Leading Helicopter & Rotorcraft Manufacturers - Airbus Helicopters, AgustaWestland, Bell, Boeing, Russian Helicopters, Sikorsky

The global military helicopter & rotorcraft segment globally is being driven by rapidly expanding role of helicopters in the overall force structure of armed forces globally with the effective showcasing of their capabilities for conducting a broad range of anti-terrorism directed military operations & countering a wide range of asymmetric threats during the allied war on terror across Iraq & Afghanistan war theatres during the first decade of this century.

Additionally, the evolving role of helicopters as significant force multipliers with their rapidly increasing capabilities, especially, with the rise of rotorcrafts, & their increasing indispensability for conducting a wide range of military operations & missions and the rapidly evolving nature of threat perception from symmetric to asymmetric has made their presence formidable with the battlefield boundaries becoming increasingly nebulous. The development of experimental compound helicopter platforms, especially, the self-funded X2 program by Sikorsky & X3 by Eurocopter have already heralded the beginning of a new technological era as well as leap for military helicopters, in terms, of operational spectrum & capabilities. The continued spate of defense budgetary cuts across most traditional markets, however, continue to impact acquisition of new military helicopters and impede the development of new helicopter programs.

The global civil helicopter & rotorcraft industry segment, on the contrary, is witnessing a resurgence of-sorts post the global economic crisis of 2008, driven by the development of new helicopter platforms by OEMs featuring cutting-edge technologies offering enhanced performance capabilities while reducing operating economics significantly. Other key demand drivers for the civil segment include, foray by OEMs into entirely new segments, especially, Super mid-size with the positioning of latest product platforms with significant growth in global oil & gas exploration activity, an ageing global civil helicopter fleet deployed in the oil & gas exploration sector and growing demand from the EMS, Law Enforcement & VIP Transportation segments, especially, across emerging markets.

The U.S. spending on military helicopter acquisitions is projected to contract by half by 2018 as compared against the 2012 levels with the ongoing budgetary cuts. The same has been driving the demand for development of military variants of available civil helicopter programs by industry OEMs, as highlighted by the AgustaWestland's AW139M & AW169 family, Airbus Helicopter's EC225/725 SuperPuma/Cougar family & the Sikorsky's S92/H92 Superhawk twins. The DOD plans utilization of available, customizable helicopter platforms for optimized costs as against scratch up platforms with the proposal under its FY2015 budget request to use available AH-64E Apaches of the National Air Guards for scout role in conjunction with UAVs as a replacement of the existing OH-58 Kiowa Warrior fleet besides plans to divest & replace the TH-67 Creek trainer helicopter fleet with the in-production UH-72A Lakotas through procurement of 100 Lakotas through 2016.

In the civil helicopter segment, steady demand growth is projected over medium term with helicopter deliveries projected to be split equally amongst traditional & emerging markets with North America projected to take the lead amongst traditional markets while Latin America is projected to clearly outclass other emerging markets in terms of deliveries as the world's second largest market for civil helicopters. Offshore oil & gas exploration sector besides law enforcement are likely to be the biggest drivers of fleet utilization globally over near term.

All industry OEMs, thus, are in the process of restructuring & realignment with enhanced focus on the civil segment while exploring & pursuing potential growth avenues in the military segment in the form of growing exports to international markets in order to balance the overall force field amongst the prevailing tailwinds & the headwinds across commercial & military segments respectively.
