European Helicopters Market size is projected to surpass USD 18 billion by 2027, according to a latest forecast report by Graphical Research.
European helicopter manufacturers in collaboration with defense bodies are engaged in the experimentation of unmanned helicopter operations, supporting the prospects of the helicopters industry in Europe. For instance, in February 2020, Leonardo S.p.A began the testing of Manned-Unmanned Teaming (MUM-T) with Wildcat helicopters. The test will be carried in association with the UK’s Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL). The test includes the testing & measuring of the cognitive burden on pilots while controlling a UAV and operating a Lynx Wildcat helicopter.
The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic across the globe had led to a global economic slowdown. The European market was adversely impacted due to the pandemic. Government-enforced lockdowns in several European countries led to a temporary shutdown of a large number of manufacturing and service industries, resulting in lower production rates. The market demand for helicopters in the region is anticipated to grow swiftly in the post-COVID-19 scenario owing to supportive government fiscal policies and high demand from the defense and commercial sectors. Rising government investments in the development of air transport and the civil aviation sector are also expected to revive the market growth.

The Environmental Control System (ECS) segment is anticipated to register a steady growth rate through 2027. The ECS of a helicopter includes several components, controllers, and indicators that are responsible for air ventilation, maintaining the required cabin temperature, and removing excess moisture. Rising technological capabilities of rotary systems & engines allow helicopters to operate in a much more hostile environment at high cursing speed and altitudes. ECS providers are entering into partnerships with helicopter manufacturers to supply advanced ECS systems. For instance, in September 2020, Liebherr-Aerospace signed an agreement with VR-Technologies, a subsidiary of Russian Helicopters, to be the supplier of ECS for the company’s new civil helicopter, the VRT 500.
