Global Military and Government Helicopter Market Forecast to 2023
Commenting on the report, an analyst said: “The demand for MRO has significantly grown due to rise in advanced technologies such as use of super-alloys, composite materials, carbon fiber, avionics, and in-flight entertainment. Simultaneously, increasing efforts toward fuel efficiency and cost reduction are driving the market. Composites and their design play a vital role in helicopters whether it is the seats, engine bay door, fuselage, or tail plane. Usage of composites has benefitted rotor blades to the maximum, regarding performance and service life.”
According to the report, additive manufacturing (AM) is a technique that uses materials such as metals, polymers, and composites to build objects, layer by layer. This technology is also known as 3D printing. AM allows flexibility when creating complex geometries that would otherwise be difficult with traditional manufacturing. Moreover, AM machines use materials, such as titanium, effectively with reduced waste production compared to conventional devices. AM is mainly employed for customized production and, therefore, is very economical in terms of scale and scope. This aspect highly contradicts mass production industries and makes AM a better fit for A&D industry. .
Further, the report states that shortage of skilled labor has challenged the commercial and military aviation MRO services, and has hampered aircraft operations and increased the number of accidents.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
