- Multi-mission helicopters are extensively used by most of the militaries across the world as they are capable of performing multiple-roles which include surveillance, troop transportation, anti-submarine warfare (ASW), search and rescue (SAR), and aerial reconnaissance.
- Multi-mission and maritime helicopters can also be equipped with limited combat capabilities.
- Increase in low intensity conflicts involving asymmetrical warfare is also expected to drive the demand for military helicopters. Helicopters are extremely well suited for roles which need accurate intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition, and reconnaissance (ISTAR) capabilities for eliminating challenges posed by fast-moving unconventional and irregular enemy forces.
- The fleet replacement programs such as the US’ CH-53K Stallion program, India’s Light Utility Helicopter (LUH) program, South Korea’s KAI-Surion program are also expected to see expedited ordering and manufacturing as most of these countries would be looking to replenish their current fleets for creating effective deterrence.
- The rapid advances in avionics technologies and C4ISR have also prompted nations to invest in development and procurement of new rotorcraft platforms which incorporate state of the art military electronics, avionics, and C4ISR capabilities.
- To this end the US has been investing on future vertical lift platforms which are anticipated to have optional piloted and autonomous flight capabilities.
