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.

This analysis forecasts production of new, fixed-wing aircraft designed for the special mission market.  The analysis includes forecasts for fixed-wing aircraft used in the following missions: Aerial Refueling,  Airborne Early Warning (AEW),  Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW),   Electronic Warfare (EW),   Electronic/Signals Intelligence (ELINT/SIGINT),   Maritime Patrol and Anti-Surface Warfare,   Search and Rescue (SAR).

Civil Aircraft Forecast

Our Civil Aircraft Forecast service covers the rivalry between Airbus and Boeing in the large airliner sector; the emergence of new players in the regional aircraft segment looking to compete with Bombardier, Embraer, and ATR; the shifting dynamics within the business jet market as aircraft such as the Cessna Longitude, Dassault Falcon 5X, and Gulfstream G500 and G600 prepare to enter service; and the various market factors propelling the general aviation/utility segment as Textron Aviation, Cirrus, Diamond, Piper, and a host of others battle for sales and market share.


Military Aircraft Forecast

The Military Aircraft Forecast reports on fixed-wing military aircraft of all types – fighters, military transports, military trainers, and special mission aircraft – worldwide. Full coverage of leading programs such as Lockheed Martin's F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF), the Airbus A400M, the Dassault Rafale, the Embraer EMB-314 Super Tucano, the Saab JAS 39 Gripen, and the Pilatus PC-21, among others.


Rotorcraft Forecast

Rotorcraft Forecast provides complete coverage of the worldwide rotorcraft market, ranging from two-seat pistons such as the Robinson R22 up to giant turbine helicopters such as the Mil Mi-26. Also included is coverage of tiltrotor aircraft such as the Leonardo AW609 and Bell/Boeing V-22 Osprey. Both the military and civil markets are covered. Due to the nature of present-day conflict, rotorcraft acquisition continues to be a priority for the world's militaries. And the civil market, despite some current difficulties, has considerable long-term potential.


The Market for Business Jet Aircraft

Presented within this market study is a year-by-year production forecast of business jet aircraft currently in production or expected to enter production within the next 10 years. These individual forecasts are the result of an exhaustive macro-level examination of the market as well as a competitive analysis of individual business jet models versus their direct and indirect competitors.


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 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 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 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.
