Major Driver Impacting Market Growth
The rise in demand for rotorcraft airplanes is expected to propel the growth of the military transport aircraft market in the forecast period. With increasing tension between various global nations, countries strive to enhance their aerial combat and support capabilities during war or enemy attacks. Such countries plan to upgrade their military rotorcraft airplane fleet with highly functional and advanced aircraft to increase their military dominance. For instance, in September 2021, the Indian Ministry of Defence announced the procurement of fifty-six C-295MW transport aircraft from M/s Airbus Defence and Space S.A., Spain, for the Indian Air Force. This C-295MW aircraft is a transport aircraft with a 5-10 tonne capacity that has contemporary technology, which will replace the aging Avro aircraft of IAF. Therefore, the rise in demand for rotorcraft airplanes is driving the growth of the military transport aircraft market.
