Impact of COVID-19

Lockdown Regulations to Negatively Affect Market Growth

The aviation industry is negatively affected during the COVID-19 pandemic because of the closure of transport activities. Governments have imposed stringent regulations regarding manufacturing activities. The decline in air passengers has led to the downfall of demand for the product in aircraft. Further, the need for raw materials for creating a vaccine is promoting import and export activities. However, it is difficult to predict the market growth because of the sudden spike in COVID-19 patients, leaving the market in a frenzy.


Based on type, the market is segregated into hardware and software. On the basis of application, it is bifurcated into civil helicopters and military helicopters. Geographically, it is grouped into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa.

Highlights of the Report

The report analyzes the top segment and the latest market trends. It comprehensively discusses the driving and restraining factors and the impact of COVID-19 on the market. Additionally, it examines the regional developments and the strategies undertaken by the market’s key players.

Drivers and Restraints

Rising Automation in Flight Management to Augment Growth

The crucial players have incorporated artificial intelligence (AI) technologies and machine learning (ML) technologies to automate the helicopter flight management system. It eliminates the amount of work on the driver to manage the entire craft regularly during a flight. The introduction of this automatic system is expected to bolster the product demand. For example, HAL India launched a novel helicopter named Rudra in 2019. It is a combat helicopter engineered for the Indian armed forces. It includes features such as FLIR, an advanced global positioning system (GPS), infrared friend or foe (IFF) identification system, Doppler navigation, and HF/UHF communications radio. Therefore, the incorporation of advanced technologies is expected to drive the helicopter flight management system market growth.

However, software compatibility and malfunction are two restraining factors that are expected to hamper the market growth.
