Military Fixed Wing Aircraft Market Dynamics
The rapid development of advanced aerospace technologies has been a major reason for the consistent demand for procuring new aircraft to meet the requirements of the modern network-centric battlefield. The advancements in the fields of stealth, speed, connectivity, and communication further propelled global demand. The availability of 4+ and fifth-generation aircraft has helped armed forces to determine and optimize their future fleet compositions, allowing for the integration of advanced technological developments into their aircraft fleet. Such a modernization effort would deliver increased system performance due to the integration of new weapons, upgraded avionics, and advanced defensive systems, requiring lesser maintenance or overhaul requirements over the life cycle.
High demand for 4.5 generation multirole aircraft is the recent trend in the market. Multirole 4.5 generation aircraft remain a cost-effective option, as they can undertake multiple roles such as air-to-surface combat, air-to-air combat, aerial battlefield reconnaissance, electronic warfare roles, and forward air control, among others. Likewise, the development of dedicated bomber aircraft also faces challenges in terms of high R&D requirements and relevant technological industrial experience, which currently is quite limited. This also requires dedicated investments in the form of national programs, which are not easy to justify for many of the emerging military nations with their limited resources. Some of the programs under development include Russia’s PAK-DA and China’s H-20 bomber aircraft, which with their stealth capabilities are expected to compete against the US’s B-21.
Military Fixed Wing Aircraft Market Segments
The key segments in the military fixed wing aircraft market are combat aircraft, transport aircraft, ISR (intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance) aircraft, tanker aircraft, training, and light attack aircraft. Over 2023-33, the combat aircraft segment is anticipated to be the largest segment in the global military fixed wing aircraft market. The segment’s growth can be attributed to the procurement of next-generation multi-role combat aircraft with advanced sensors, electronic warfare, communication, and weapon systems to improve their ground attack and air defense capabilities in the evolving modern battlefield.

These two highlights have helped enormously to understand the projections into the future concerning our business units, we also utilise the project database to source new projects for Liebherr-Werk to use as an additional source to pitch for new business.”

Your daily news has saved me a lot of time and keeps me up-to-date with what is happening in the market, I like that you almost always have a link to the source origin. We also use your market data in our Strategic Business Process to support our business decisions. By having everything in one place on the Intelligence Center it has saved me a lot of time versus looking on different sources, the alert function also helps with this.
Marketing Intelligence Manager, Portugal Foods
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.
Head of Customer Insight and Research, Standard Chartered
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.

Senior Account Manager, TSYS
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.
