The 240-page International Military and Government Helicopter Survey is a new report that assesses current trends in the military and government helicopter market. The report looks in depth at the major platforms, programmes and future requirements of military and government operators worldwide used in a diverse range of roles.

It provides a complete reference to helicopters in military and government use with a market that saw contracts for new and remanufactured aircraft worth around USD8.1 billion in 2010 and about USD2.3 billion in the first half of 2011. Some 3,715 helicopters are forecast in the report to be delivered to military and government customers in the period 2011 to 2015, demonstrating that it remains a key procurement area – despite current budgetary pressures on government and defence spending.

The US and Europe were found in the report to be the main regions particularly active in helicopter procurement, although the Middle East and the Asia and Pacific are increasingly becoming as important market areas.

The purpose of this survey is to:

  • Assess the current military and government helicopter market.
  • Identify the main helicopter manufacturers and their products as well as significant sub-contractors in the supply chain.
  • Identify the main suppliers of engines and sensors for the rotary-wing market.
  • Review military and government helicopter procurement since 2005.
  • Provide a detailed overview of current and future opportunities within the military and government helicopter market focusing on upgrades and new procurement.

The report profiles major helicopter manufacturers like AgustaWestland, Boeing, Eurocopter, Russian Helicopters and Sikorsky with focus on current and future platforms like the CH-47F Chinook, UH-60M Black Hawk, NH-90 and Mil-17. It also lists more than 150 subcontractors involved in the helicopter market.

It features more than 48 figures, tables and data based on current and planned procurement to assess the current military and government helicopter primarily through to 2015 and beyond - complete with regional forecasts, estimated delivery schedules, listings of main contractors and subcontractors as well as major type operators and fleet estimations, helicopter specifications, contracts and requirements.

The report is completed with the addresses, telephone and website listings of more than 200 companies mentioned in the publication.
