The global military vertical take-off and landing aircraft market size reached US$ 37.8 Billion in 2021. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 61.2 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 8.12% during 2022-2027. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end use sectors. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

Military vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft operates, takes off and lands from the same place, small pad or unprepared site without the requirement of a long runway. It contains lightweight and efficient turbofans and can perform more maneuvers compared to conventional aircraft. It is widely utilized to transport troops quickly, easily and safely from a base location or aircraft carriers to battlefronts. It is also used for providing essential supplies to victims of natural calamities during rescue missions. Presently, VTOL unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), such as drones, that use electric motors are gaining widespread adoption in the defense and military sector worldwide as they are more energy-efficient than jet engines.

With rising international border disputes, governing agencies of several counties are procuring and replacing existing aircraft with next-generation military equipment and weapons. This represents one of the major factors propelling the market growth. Moreover, as VTOL UAVs can land in difficult and compact areas, they are used in counterterrorism to provide surveillance and tracking terrorism activities in remote areas. Apart from this, the rising demand for military aircraft that can operate from austere bases and in the front-line combat zone is influencing the market growth positively. Their demand is also increasing in natural disaster vulnerable areas to mitigate the damage. Furthermore, due to the rising environmental concerns, manufacturers are using different technologies and production strategies to develop hybrid-electric VTOL aircraft with effective aerodynamic forces and reduced operating costs.
