The global fighter aircraft market is estimated to be USD XX billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD XX billion by 2030, at a CAGR of X.X% from 2018 to 2030. The growth of the market can be attributed to the increasing demand for fighter aircraft for homeland security and defense applications. Asia Pacific is expected to lead the market during the forecast period owing to the increasing demand for fighter aircraft from countries such as China, India, and Japan.
A fighter aircraft is a military aircraft designed primarily for air-to-air combat against other aircraft, as opposed to bombers and attack aircraft, which are designed to attack ground targets. The importance of Fighter Aircraft is that they are used to engage in aerial combat with other fighter planes.
Fixed-wing aircraft are powered by engines that are mounted in the wing and provide flight through a propeller. The most common types of fixed-wing aircraft include jet airliners, business jets, military fighter jets and commercial helicopters. Fixed-wing aircraft can be single or multiengine designs. They offer better fuel economy as compared to rotary or turbine engine designs which have a higher power to weight ratio.
Rotary wing aircraft are powered by a single main rotor and multiple smaller rotors. The design offers numerous advantages such as fuel economy, low maintenance costs, and high speed which has resulted in its widespread usage in commercial aviation.
The demand for helicopters is expected to increase significantly over the forecast period owing to their ability to serve various purposes such as military, rescue operations, law enforcement activities among others.
The defense segment dominated the market in 2017 and is expected to witness a CAGR of XX% from 2018 to 2030. The growth can be attributed to the increasing military expenditure across various countries. For instance, according to data published by Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), military expenditure in Asia Pacific increased from USD 456 billion in 2010 to USD 609 billion in 2015, which represents a growth of 13%. Furthermore, countries such as India and China are planning for large-scale procurement of fighter aircraft which would propel product demand over the forecast period.
Homeland security application is anticipated to witness significant growth during the forecast period owing to rise in terrorist attacks globally. Countries such as India have made significant investments for purchasing advanced rotary winged aircraft for providing effective ground support against insurgency and terrorism at home as well as abroad thus driving product demand over the forecast period.
North America dominated the global fighter aircraft market in terms of revenue share in 2017. The U.S., being a leading military power, is expected to continue acquiring new combat aircraft for its armed forces over the forecast period. However, Asia Pacific is anticipated to witness significant growth over the next eight years owing to increasing defense spending by various countries including China and India as well as growing homeland security concerns across these nations. Moreover, an increase in geopolitical tensions has led governments of different countries to strengthen their air forces with advanced warplanes thus boosting demand across this region also known as the regional market for fighter aircraft (RMA).
The European region accounted for a considerable share of global revenue due to large-scale arms exports from major economies such as Germany and France taking place on a regular basis since last few decades which have been influencing regional dynamics significantly especially with regards acquisition of fixed-wing combat planes (fighters and attack helicopters). Also, presence of major aerospace companies such as Airbus S.
- Increasing demand for fighter aircraft from developing countries due to rising security concerns
- Proliferation of advanced fighter aircraft technologies and capabilities
- Growing investments by defense ministries in modernizing their fighter fleets
- Rising number of air conflicts and territorial disputes around the world
- Escalating costs of procuring advanced fighter aircraft
