    ANALYSIS | The political tides of war are shifting — and may be taking Ukraine with them | CBC News

    We have been warned — over and over again lately — that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is an inflection point in history. And while the soaring political rhetoric may have sounded good over the last few years, it's very likely that this week, we truly arrived at that turning point.

    Geopolitical Instability and the Need to Refresh Obsolete Fleets will Drive Recovery of Military and Public Services Helicopters Market

    NEWS PROVIDED BY Frost & Sullivan Commercial off-the-shelf solutions and modernisation strategies will ignite fresh growth opportunities, finds Frost & Sullivan LONDON, Oct. 16, 2018 /CNW/ -- After almost 10 years of stagnation and delayed programmes in key regions, the global market for military and public services helicopters is facing recovery. Growth is primarily driven by geopolitical tensions, replacing and upgrading obsolete helicopters, new development programs such as rotary unmanned aerial systems (UAS), and manned-unmanned teaming (MUM-T) of operations to strengthen battlefield readiness. "Ongoing deployment overseas and rising threats will drive market recovery and fuel demand for additional helicopters," said Alix Leboulanger, Senior Industry Analyst, Defence at Frost & Sullivan. "There will be a focus on commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) solutions to minimise training, sustain costs and improve adoption timeframes with modernisation plans preferred due to budget sensitivity and operational readiness requirements." For further information on this analysis, please visit: http://frost.ly/2uq Leboulanger recommends helicopter original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) look towards recent developments in the rise of UAS and their increasing operational usage on front lines. The development of rotary UAS has generated new opportunities for helicopter OEMs in terms of new platform developments and designs and is one of the most promising growth areas within this market. Five key trends creating growth opportunities in the market include: North America remains the biggest market for military helicopters; Operators are increasingly looking at optimising their fleets with fewer types and more operational capabilities; Global renewal cycles hold billions of dollars' worth of planned and forecasted opportunities in new procurements and modernisation programmes; Significant investment in MUM-T as joint deployments of manned and unmanned assets become the new standard; and Collaboration with non-traditional military players and start-ups involved in robotic fields to refine and improve UAS. "Despite stringent replacement requirements and operational readiness objectives pushing forward military helicopter replacement plans, financial recovery remains very fragile," noted Leboulanger. "Political uncertainty over international trade agreements and the reissuing of trade barriers could impact helicopter production lines and exports. Original equipment manufacturers need to consider new strategies for international competition and to retain traditional export customers."
