Armoured vehicles are central to military operational deployments, whether they are humanitarian or combat in nature. The utility of armoured vehicles has been clearly evident over the past decade within Iraq and Afghanistan, as troops have used armoured vehicles for engagement, troop transfer, and patrol duties. This report The 20 Leading Companies in Armoured Vehicles 2012: Competitive Landscape Analysis determines the percentage share and market positioning for each of the 20 leading companies within the armoured vehicles market; a marketplace assessed to be worth $10.97bn by us in 2012.
The cycle of troop experience leading to industry innovation has had a profound impact on the armoured vehicles market, as industry leaders, government, and military officials are now concerned with the development of a new wave of armoured vehicles that are both flexible enough to adapt to unforeseen challenges, and strong enough to fulfil tasks.
Coupled with this, leading armoured vehicle companies are now faced with a multi market environment, where contracts to Asia, the Middle East and South America are as valuable in some cases as traditional European or US armoured vehicle programme opportunities. As a result, companies face a choice to either concentrate designs on a home market for armoured vehicles, or to try and fulfil all requirements by offering adaptable armoured vehicle platforms. In addition, the context of the economic environment which encircles many Western nations must also be taken into account.
