NEW YORK, March 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:
The Canadian and United States military have spent a considerable amount of money to purchase avionics for new aircraft and as retrofits for older aircraft. As pressure on the budgets of both countries forces reassessments of that spending the military services will need to think strategically about the future procurements and methodologies. The market is defined as the spending for avionics products and services by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) with government contractors. Research was conducted in July and August of 2012 and used the DoD and RCAF budget materials from calendar year (CY) 2012 and the contracts awarded in CY 2011.
Executive Summary•The military avionics market in North America will decline, but only slightly over the period between 2011 and 2017. This is true in both the United States and Canada.•The relatively small numbers of new aircraft models will limit the number of market participants able to play a role in the development and manufacture of those aircraft.•Aircraft modification programs have been driven by combat necessity and changes in the air traffic management infrastructure. Funding for modification of Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF), U.S. Army, and U.S. Navy aircraft will decline over the forecast period.•As a result of reduced combat operations, the funding for U.S. spares procurement is also falling at a slow rate.•Research, development, testing, and evaluation (RDT&E) spending will decline for all services except for the U.S. Navy, which will be level.•As the programs supporting communications, navigation, surveillance-air traffic management (CNS-ATM) are completed, spending in those areas is likely to decline.TABLE OF CONTENTS Executive Summary 5Market Overview 9•External Challenges: Drivers and Restraints 14•Forecasts and Trends 22•Market Share and Competitive Analysis 28Tanker/Transport Segment Breakdown 32Fighter/Attack/Bomber Segment Breakdown 40C4ISR/Special Mission Segment Breakdown 48Trainer Breakdown 58Unmanned Systems Breakdown 64Helicopter Segment Breakdown 72General Avionics Breakdown 83United States Breakdown 89Canada Breakdown 100The Last Word (Conclusions and Implications) 106Appendix 109
