The Market for Fighter Aircraft

Although many countries are cutting their defense budgets, the outlook for fighters remains stable.  Worldwide, industrialized nations are currently in the process of a major re-equipment cycle, and the long-term nature of fighter procurement programs will shelter production of these aircraft from the effects of the financial crisis. This analysis covers the market for fighter aircraft in terms of both units to be produced and the value of the overall market. The market for jet trainers, some of which are also used as attack aircraft, is covered in the Analysis titled "The M


The Market for Fighter/Attack/Trainer Aircraft R&M

This analysis identifies areas of opportunity in the fighter/attack/trainer aircraft R&M market. In general, the programs most likely to succeed over the next decade are those that are affordable and that offer effective solutions to modern military concerns.


The Market for General Aviation/Utility Aircraft

This analysis covers general aviation/utility aircraft but does not include ultralights, experimental aircraft, and powered gliders; nor does it cover the new Light Sport Aircraft category. Its coverage is targeted at the production activity in two of the three tiers that compose the overall general aviation market.


The Market for Large Commercial Jet Transports

Fourteen families of large commercial jet transports are forecast in this study. These 14 families account for nearly 30 individual aircraft models. The aircraft production forecasts form the basis for the manufacturer market share forecasts that are also included in this analysis. The forecasts, which are broken out by aircraft model and engine, are calculated in terms of unit production and monetary value of production.


The Market for Light Aircraft Retrofit & Modernization

This market covers a plethora of platforms, from very light aircraft flown by a single individual to small cargo or VIP transports operated by companies. Personal taste and comfort, therefore, play a more important role in this market than in others; a recreational flier with a Cessna may be more interested in enjoying a pastime than in maximizing fuel efficiency, and a VIP flying on a Learjet may prefer comfort to capacity or performance. The introduction of low-cost very light jets further complicates the market, as private owners can now switch from their existing aircraft to a new one at


The Market for Light Commercial Rotorcraft

The civil rotary-wing aircraft market is highly competitive, with manufacturers on both sides of the Atlantic battling for market share. Forecast International defines the light commercial rotorcraft market segment as including those rotorcraft that fall roughly under 6,804 kilograms (15,000 lb) in maximum gross weight.


The Market for Light Military Rotorcraft

Annual military rotorcraft production is projected to increase in concert with significant new production in the United States and Europe.  The light military class includes a wide variety of products, ranging from small, single-engine pistons to light single turbines and light/intermediate twin turbines.


The Market for Medium/Heavy Commercial Rotorcraft

Forecast International defines the medium/heavy commercial rotorcraft market segment to include those rotorcraft with maximum takeoff weights of more than 6,804 kilograms (15,000 lb). Rotorcraft with lower MTOWs are covered in our analysis titled "The Market for Light Commercial Rotorcraft."


The Market for Medium/Heavy Military Rotorcraft

Forecast International generally defines a medium/heavy rotorcraft as having a maximum gross weight greater than or equal to 6,804 kilograms (15,000 lb). Rotorcraft with a gross weight of less than 15,000 pounds are generally defined as light rotorcraft.


The Market for Military Fixed-Wing Trainer Aircraft

This analysis covers active programs within the fixed-wing military training market, including aircraft powered by jet, turboprop, and piston engines. Note that several aircraft that are often used as trainers are not included within our market forecast because they do not train the "first and second seaters" who perform the pilot-in-command or copilot/weapons officer roles in military aircraft.


The Market for Military Rotorcraft Retrofit & Modernization

This analysis reviews opportunities and ongoing efforts within the rotorcraft upgrade market, defining "rotorcraft" as any aircraft that produces lift exclusively through the use of rotary wings at some stage of flight. These include conventional helicopters with one or two main rotors, be they coaxial or otherwise, as well as newer hybrid designs with multiple flight geometries, such as the V-22 Osprey. Also included are compound helicopters with fixed forward propulsion systems, such as the Sikorsky X2/S-97, Airbus Helicopters X3, and AVX-modified OH-58.


The Market for Military Transport Aircraft

Forecast International defines the market for military transports to include aircraft that perform one or more military air transportation missions such as personnel transport, long-range strategic airlift, and short-range tactical transport, as well as short-haul utility runs. With the exception of a few models included in the light/utility transport segment, this analysis covers aircraft that are designed to serve as military transports and excludes aircraft designed for the civilian market such as commercial airliners, regional jets, and business jets, all of which typically a


The Market for Regional Transport Aircraft

Demand for regional transports continues to shift upward in favor of ever-larger-capacity aircraft, with demand now centering on 90+ passenger aircraft.  In order to facilitate product comparisons and competitive evaluation, Forecast International divides the regional aircraft market into five nominal seating classes. The forecasts contained within this study include both turbofan-powered and turboprop-powered regional aircraft.


The Market for Special Mission Military Aircraft

The special mission aircraft is a diverse segment of the military aircraft market and is essentially a collection of individual markets.  Special mission aircraft are generally designed to support and enhance the effectiveness of aircraft, naval, and ground forces engaged in combat operations against the enemy. But this segment does include certain maritime patrol aircraft designed for direct combat with enemy warships and submarine forces.
