MILITARY AVIATION TURBOSHAFT ENGINE MARKET ON DOWNWARD SLOPE
Thursday, February 11, 2016

Source: GE Aviation

NEWTOWN, Conn. - Forecast International has conducted its annual assessment of the aviation turboshaft engines market and notes that manufacturers will produce almost 30,000 new turboshaft engines to power rotorcraft during the period 2016-2025. The value of this production will exceed $25 billion in 2016 dollars.

Demand for turboshafts is directly related to the market for their respective applications in the civil and military rotorcraft markets.

The military market is in the early stages of a long-term, slow decline as demand for military helicopters ebbs after a period of huge growth in 2005 2013 driven in part by demand from the U.S. military. With defense budgets tightening around the world, new rotorcraft requirements are being cut back or delayed to save money. Military rotorcraft production is forecast to decline through 2021 before leveling off at around 450-500 aircraft per year. On the civil side, improvement in the world's economy is leading to increasing deliveries in the light commercial rotorcraft segment. The medium and heavy helicopter segments had long been enjoying strong demand from the energy sector, but the global decline in oil prices since mid-2014 is cutting demand from offshore oilfield support operators. Growth in unit production in the civil sector during at least the near term will be in the lighter end of the market.

Production is forecast to increase through 2020, followed by a two-year period of declining production caused by an anticipated cyclical downturn in the aerospace market overall. The downturn could come earlier if the North American and European markets - the two primary markets for rotorcraft - slip into recession before then.

In the commercial market, the primary drivers in the current environment are the need to replace aging aircraft, changing operational requirements, and expiring warranties.

The result of a rising civil market and a declining military one will be a period of almost flat deliveries from 2016 through 2020, with deliveries averaging over 3,100 units per year.
