Impact Analysis of Covid-19
The complete version of the Report will include the impact of the COVID-19, and anticipated change on the future outlook of the industry, by taking into the account the political, economic, social, and technological parameters.
Global military aerial refueling tanker market anticipated driving due to the development and procurement of cost-effective aerial refueling tankers along with increasing defense expenditure of various countries
Global military aerial refueling tanker market estimated to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period, 2020-2027. The primary factors are the growing demand for land-based strike platforms that can make an uninterrupted flight of a distance ranging from 4,600 miles to 5,700 miles by developed countries. Additionally, the development of unmanned jet tankers and shifting toward a next-generation long-range strike platform is anticipated to fuel the demand for military aerial refueling tankers across the globe in the coming years. Moreover, the high defence budget of developing and developed nations has led to substantial demand for tanker aircraft is further anticipated to boost the global military aerial refueling tanker industry. According to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, the total world military biggest spenders in 2018 were the United States, China, Saudi Arabia, India, and France. Various countries have changed their military organization by adding more long-range combat aircraft to their fleet due to logistical and technological advantages, which are is strengthening the market growth.
For special aircraft such as reconnaissance aircraft and anti-submarine aircraft, aerial refueling aircraft can increase the stagnation time of combat aircraft, thereby reducing the number of aircraft dispatches and completing the corresponding combat tasks more efficiently. In addition to making up the voyage, refueling in the air can also increase the effective load of combat aircraft. Furthermore, the emergence of a smart drogue system has gained prominence due to its active buffer. It leads to a considerable reduction in its movement along with uninterrupted refueling even in harsh situations such as intense turbulence and rough air. These factors expected to witness the remarkable growth of the market.
