Annual Strategy Dossier - 2014 - World%s 6 Leading Helicopter & Rotorcraft Manufacturers - Key Strategies, Plans, Strategic Insights, SWOT, Trends & Strategic Outlook - Airbus Helicopters, AgustaWestland, Bell, Boeing, Russian Helicopters, Sikorsky

1. Industry Overview & Backdrop: Continued Budgetary Pressures across Traditional Markets Impacting Military Segment. Steady Growth Projections for Civil Segment over Medium Term.

Military Segment - Global Military Helicopter & Rotorcraft Segment Driven by Expanding Role in Force Structure, Extension of Capabilities Powered by Development of Cutting-Edge Platforms as well as Technologies & Significant Global Replacement Demand :-

The global military helicopter & rotorcraft segment globally is being driven by rapidly expanding role of helicopters in the overall force structure of armed forces globally with the showcasing of their capabilities for conducting a broad range of anti-terrorism directed military operations & countering a wide range of asymmetric threats during the allied war on terror across Iraq & Afghanistan war theatres during the first decade of this century.

Additionally, the evolving role of helicopters as significant force multipliers with their rapidly increasing capabilities, especially, with the rise of rotorcrafts, & their increasing indispensability for conducting a wide range of military operations & missions and the rapidly evolving nature of threat perception from symmetric to asymmetric has made their presence formidable with the battlefield boundaries becoming increasingly nebulous. The development of experimental compound helicopter platforms, especially, the self-funded X2 program by Sikorsky & X3 by Eurocopter have already heralded the beginning of a new technological era as well as leap for military helicopters, in terms, of operational spectrum & capabilities.

Further, the imminent, significant replacement demand for ageing military helicopters emanating from traditional as well as emerging markets and strong R&D activity driven technological developments & innovations are likely to be a strong demand driver over medium term for military helicopters & rotorcrafts despite the ongoing, significant pressure on defense budgets across most traditional markets.

Civil Segment - Global Civil Helicopter & Rotorcraft Segment being Driven by the Development & Introduction of New Product Platforms by OEMs, Growing Demand from Emerging Markets across Key Market Segments & Significant Replacement Demand likely to emanate from the Offshore Oil & Gas Exploration Sector:-

The global civil helicopter & rotorcraft industry segment is being driven by the development of new helicopter platforms by OEMs offering enhanced performance capabilities while reducing operating economics significantly, foray into entirely new segments, like, Super mid-size besides significant growth in global oil & gas exploration activity driven by growing oil demand from key Asian economies, an ageing global civil helicopter fleet deployed in the oil & gas exploration sector and growing demand from the EMS, Law Enforcement & VIP Transportation segments, especially, across emerging markets. About 4,800 to 5,500 new civil helicopters are projected to be delivered globally through the 2014-2018 period based on forecasts by Honeywell in its Turbine-Powered Civil Helicopter Purchase Outlook for 2014. The helicopter deliveries are likely to be split equally amongst traditional & emerging markets with North America projected to take the lead amongst traditional markets while Latin America is projected to clearly outclass other emerging markets in terms of deliveries. Offshore oil & gas exploration sector besides law enforcement are likely to be the biggest drivers of fleet utilization globally.

2. Report Overview & Rationale: Insights into Key Strategies & Plans for OEMs & Assessment of Strategic Positioning & Responsiveness.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and Containers together help companies to achieve their business goals faster and more effectively.
