The "Global
Civil Helicopter Market - 2018-2022 - Market Dynamics, Competitive
Landscape, OEM Strategies & Plans, Trends & Growth Opportunities, Market
report has been added to's

The Global Civil Helicopter Market is on the recovery course after
facing headwinds for a number of consecutive years starting 2014 with
the plummeting of global crude oil prices which precipitated the crisis
in the energy sector and led to sinking of the demand for new civil
helicopters & fleet utilization levels of in-service fleet for
transportation to the offshore oil & gas rigs.

The market for civil helicopters is likely to bottom out in 2018 with
fleet utilization rates across operators picking up for the first half
of 2018 as global crude oil prices resurge driven by contrived supply
side constraints & pressures.

However, the civil helicopters deliveries are likely to remain flat for
2018 and pick up only from 2019 onwards; despite decent activity &
demand from the EMS, Parapublic & VIP transport market segments; in a
complex, uncertain, challenging & difficult global macroeconomic
environment that is likely to stay over near term.

Amongst regions, China is spearheading the global demand growth for
civil helicopters, led by the development of its EMS market, and is
poised to become the world's leading market for civil helicopters over
medium term.

Amongst OEMs, Airbus Helicopters continues to lead & further tighten its
grip on the global civil helicopter market with almost 50% unit delivery
share for 2017 and a robust order book position while being propelled by
a favorable trend & growing preference for militarized variants of civil
helicopter platforms globally.

However, the H225 Super Puma program, its traditional workhorse in the
offshore oil & gas segment, continues to be the biggest concern area for
Airbus over safety & reliability issues with the program marred by a
series of helicopter crashes over years and Airbus facing lawsuits &
claims from operators. Further, the offshore market is witnessing a
shift towards the super medium helicopter segment which further
compounds the issues for Airbus.

Going forward, the U.S. Navy's plan to replace its TH-57 Trainer
rotorcraft with a commercial, off the shelf solution is likely to be a
key program of contention for Airbus Helicopters, Bell & Leonardo with
the trio fielding their respective contenders for the potentially
significant growth avenue in a highly strategic market.

Also, the likely radical transformation of personal mobility with the
upcoming age of eVTOL based air transportation systems will herald a new
era of growth for the industry which is gearing up rapidly with the
development of requisite technologies.
