Rolls-Royce 10-year Forecast: 16,970 Deliveries

By Dale Smith

Rolls-Royce has released its annual 10-year civil and military turbine helicopter market forecast. The forecast calls for 10,900 civil and 6,070 military turbine helicopters with a value of more than $140 billion, including more than $12 billion in turbine engines. While single-engine helicopters will continue to lead the demand, the company predicts that new twin-engine models will contribute to new demand. Patricia O’Connell, Rolls-Royce President, Customer Business Defense North America notes that while the market has not returned as quickly as the military would like, “basic indicators such as emerging market demand are beginning to support a positive environment.”
