The Military Airlift Market 2009-2019

 
The Military Airlift Market 2009-2019

This brand new visiongain report examines current trends and future prospects for the military airlift products market.
 

This is an established market that is expected to see steady growth from 2009 onwards. Visiongain estimates that the global military airlift market generated sales of over $7bn in 2008, predicting that annual sales will increase to over $10bn by next decade. Do you want to know where the sales growth will occur? This new report - The Military Airlift Market 2009-2019 - covers both fixed-wing and rotary airlift products. Many of the world's military forces are in the midst of renewing their airlift fleets, both to acquire new capabilities and to replace ageing equipment. The US remains the world's largest airlift market; its military services have embarked on a number of airlift acquisition programmes recently. However, will the US stay ahead as a market and producer? How will other leading military nations act? This report answers those and other questions. There are also notable programmes in Europe and other regions. Programmes to develop aircraft in India, Japan and Brazil could make those countries significant players in coming years, as this report reveals.


Sub-markets for airlift covered in detail Visiongain divides the global airlift market into two groups: fixed-wing and rotary craft, each with its own submarkets.


The fixed-wing segment is grouped as follows:

  • strategic transports
  • strategic tanker transports
  • tactical transports
  • light transports.


The rotary-craft segment is grouped as follows:

  • heavy-lift cargo
  • medium-lift cargo/utility
  • light-lift utility.


This report analyses how airlift will fare in 15 leading country markets. These include the US, the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Russia, Japan, China and India. The onset of the global financial crisis in 2008 will cause governments to reassess their defence budgets. However, visiongain believes that airlift is considered a crucial capability of armed forces worldwide, one that will continue to receive significant spending from 2009 onwards. This report explains how, where and when.
