Defense Transport Aircraft Market Outlook 2030 -

A military transport aircraft also known as airlifted transport aircraft, is a military-owned transport aircraft that is used support military operations by airlifting troops and military equipment. Transport aircraft are crucial to maintaining supply lines to forward bases that are inaccessible by ground or water, and they can be used for both strategic and tactical missions. They are often diverted to civilian emergency relief missions by transporting humanitarian aids. Fixed-wing transport airplanes are classified as strategic airlift or tactical airlift based on their range capability to reflect the needs of the land forces; they most frequent support. Some military transport aircraft perform multiple duties, including aerial refueling, as well as rescue missions, and tactical, operational, and strategic airlifts onto unprepared runways. Military transport helicopters are used in places where conventional aircraft cannot be used. For example, the military transport helicopter is the primary transport asset of US Marines deploying from LHDs and LHA. The landing possibilities of helicopters are nearly limitless, and where landing is impossible, such as densely packed jungle, the ability of the helicopter to hover allows troops to deploy by abseiling and roping.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic has compelled governments globally to refrain from mobilizing military personnel to prevent disease spread, slowing military movement and reducing the use of military aircraft. All ongoing military aircraft projects have been halted due to delays in order processing and procurement due to supply chain restrictions caused by the COVID-19. Governments are diverting all economic resources to combat the COVID-19 scenario, while military organizations face huge budgetary constraints that are affecting ongoing aircraft avionics upgrades. In addition to strategic and tactical airlifting, transport aircraft were used to perform more critical supply flights, delivering personal protective equipment, medicines, and ventilators from foreign countries. transport aircraft, in addition to commercial aircraft, were used in some countries to repatriate nationals stranded overseas due to sudden lockdowns, and to conduct medical evacuation tasks. The lockdown and social distancing imposed by authorities to contain the COVID-19 will hinder military aircraft avionics system training of the personnel. The military has been called to aid in the COVID-19 crisis by respective countries, consequently diverting all focus on civilian aid, and rendering combat aircraft avionics impractical in the short term.

Top Impacting Factors

  • The rise in demand for enhancing aerial combat and support capabilities, replacing the aging fleet with newer-generation aircraft, and an increase in the defense budget are the factors driving the growth of the market.
  • High maintenance & upgradation cost is expected to hamper the growth of the market.
  • Rise in demand for rotorcraft airplanes can be seen as an opportunity for the market investments.

The Defense t Transport Aircraft Market Trends are as Follows:

Rise in Demand for Rotorcraft Airplanes

Military transport helicopters are used for   a variety of tasks such as airlifting troops, cargo resupply, firefighting, and medical evacuation. Many countries are planning to upgrade their military transport rotorcraft fleets, and some fleet modernization programs are already in work. Singapore also planning to replace its fleet of AS332 Super Pumas. On that note, the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF)., received the first H-225M medium-lift transport helicopter in March 2021to Though the H225M is based on the Super Puma and looks similar to it, it has new engines, new avionics, and an enlarged main cabin that the manufacturer claims can carry up to 28 troops in normal cabin seats, or 14 in energy-absorbing wall-mounted seats. Similar initiatives by other countries are expected to fuel the demand for military transport rotorcraft during the forecast period. Major military helicopter OEMs have been focused on overcoming the staggering challenges. They have been trying to attain higher speed, superior agility and maneuverability, and a high survival rate in adverse weather conditions. This led to the development of several designs and integration of other technological developments in modern military helicopters. For instance, in July 2021, China debuted the Z-8L large military transport helicopter. The body of the Z-8L is wider body than any other domestically developed rotorcraft in the country. It is intended to significantly improve the frontline transport and fast-reaction combat capability of the People's Liberation Army (PLA). Furthermore, Russian Helicopters, a subsidiary of Roster, unveiled the upgraded MI-171SJ storm military transport helicopter at the international military-technical Forum ARMY-2020. in August 2020. The Mi-171Sh Storm has upgraded engines, a new rotor system with an improved profile composite main rotor and X-shaped tail rotor, and the latest version of the President-S on-board aircraft defense system. Such developments are expected to drive the growth of the segment during the forecast period.
