The quantitative dataset allows the user to understand what exactly is being procured, and in what timelines. The increasing geopolitical tensions, low-intensity cross-border skirmishes, varied geographical deployments of armed forces, and standardization requirements as part of military alliances such as NATO is expected to drive of procurement of rotorcraft. The demand for military rotorcraft is anticipated to be primarily driven by the rapid advancements in the field of stealth, speed, load capacity, and design. The emergence of new technologies have rendered the majority of the legacy erstwhile rotorcraft fleets obsolete and unsuitable for modern combat, thus necessitating the procurement of new helicopter variants.

The transport and utility helicopter is expected to be the largest segment accounting for 62.3% of the global military rotorcraft market over the forecast period. The segment's growth is anticipated to be mainly driven by the increasing procurement of next-generation multi-mission helicopters featuring enhanced network centric warfare capability, superior sensor suite, and integrated self-protection systems. These new helicopters can effectively undertake conventional logistics operations as well as support special forces operations in highly contested battlefield. According to Chandan Kumar Nayak, Defense Analyst at GlobalData: "Several major military powers including the US, China, and India have initiated fleet modernization programs to replace the ageing fleet of legacy transport and utility platforms with next generation helicopters with superior flight performance and sensor suite. Furthermore, the increased focus on indigenization and development of military manufacturing complex for reducing import dependency is also anticipated to fuel the investments in new projects over the next decade."

Asia-Pacific region is expected to dominate the global military rotorcraft market from 2023 to 2033. China’s involvement in all flashpoint zones in the region, right from its borders with India to the South China Sea, involving Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Taiwan, and Vietnam, as well as traditional conflicts with South Korea and Japan, ensure the necessity for a large rotorcraft fleet. The ongoing procurement programs including Z-10, Z-19, Z-18F and Z-20/F/S is anticipated to significantly increase the country’s share of the global military rotorcraft market over the next decade. Similarly, India is also procuring IMRH, Naval Multi-Role Helicopters, and Prachand – Light Combat Helicopter (LCH) during the forecast period. These acquisitions are also contributing towards overall regional market growth.

Head of Key Accounts, Saab AB

Having used several other market research companies, I find that GlobalData manages to provide that ‘difficult-to-get’ market data that others can’t, as well as very diverse and complete consumer surveys.

Marketing Intelligence Manager, Portugal Foods

Our experience with GlobalData has been very good, from the platform itself to the people. I find that the analysts and the account team have a high level of customer focus and responsiveness and therefore I can always rely on. The platform is more holistic than other providers. It is convenient and almost like a one stop shop. The pricing suite is highly competitive and value for our organisation.

I like reports that inform new segments such as the analysis on generation Z, millennials, the impact of COVID 19 to our banking customers and their new channel habits. Secondly the specialist insight on affluent sector significantly increases our understanding about this group of customers. The combination of those give us depth and breadth of the evolving market.

I’m in the business of answering and helping people make decisions so with the intelligence center I can do that, effectively and efficiently. I can share quickly key insights that answer and satisfy our country stakeholders by giving them many quality studies and primary research about competitive landscape beyond the outlook of our bank. It helps me be seen as an advisory partner and that makes a big difference. A big benefit of our subscription is that no one holds the whole data and because it allows so many people, so many different parts of our organisation have access, it enables all teams to have the same level of knowledge and decision support.

Head of Customer Insight and Research, Standard Chartered

“I know that I can always rely on Globaldata’s work when I’m searching for the right consumer and market insights. I use Globaldata insights to understand the changing market & consumer landscape and help create better taste & wellbeing solutions for our customers in food, beverage and healthcare industries.

Globaldata has the right data and the reports are of very high quality compared to your competitors. Globaldata not only has overall market sizes & consumer insights on food & beverages but also provides insights at the ingredient & flavour level. That is key for B2B companies like Givaudan. This way we understand our customers’ business and also gain insight to our unique industry”

Head of Consumer Sensory Insights, Givaudan

GlobalData provides a great range of information and reports on various sectors that is highly relevant, timely, easy to access and utilise.  The reports and data dashboards help engagement with clients; they provide valuable industry and market insights that can enrich client conversations and can help in the shaping of value propositions. Moreover, using GlobalData products has helped increase my knowledge of the finance sector, the players within it, and the general threats and opportunities.

I find the consumer surveys that are carried out to be extremely beneficial and not something I have seen anywhere else. They provided an insightful view of why and which consumers take (or don’t) particular financial products. This can help shape conversations with clients to ensure they make the right strategic decisions for their business.

One of the challenges I have found is that data in the payments space is often piecemeal. With GD all of the data I need is in one place, but it also comes with additional market reports that provide useful extra context and information. Having the ability to set-up alerts on relevant movements in the industry, be it competitors or customers, and have them emailed directly to me, ensures I get early sight of industry activity and don’t have to search for news.
