This market research report recognizes vendors such as Boeing, Northrop Grumman, Tupolev, and Xian Aircraft Industrial as the key players in the global strategic bomber market. This report also presents segmentations based on the type of aircraft engine (turbofan, turbojet, and turboprop) and geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Outlook of the global strategic bomber market

The market analyst at Technavio predicts that the global strategic bomber market will grow steadily and post a CAGR of approximately 4% by 2020. The increasing utilization of strategic bombers in maritime military drills/patrols due to the changing nature of modern warfare will be one of the primary drivers for market growth. The extensive usage of strategic bombers for facilitating military drills, maritime patrols, and to drop heavy air-to-ground weaponry will lead to the development of innovative support sub-systems for strategic bombers. In recent times, there has been a requirement for the installation of padded active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar in the bomber division as they allow the aircraft to operate in both in adverse weather conditions and contested environments. Such advancements in technology and its extensive usage for a wide array of military applications will lead to the strong growth of the market during the estimated period.

There has been a significant development in stealth technology in recent times. The new generation of stealth aircraft will be made of flat surfaces and sharp edges that absorb the radar energy or reflect it away from the source and airplane. For instance, the Indian Air Force will enhance the operational capabilities of their stealth aircraft for ensuring safe penetration into hostile airspace. The increasing effort towards R&D will lead to the introduction of new stealth technologies such as design and development of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) and drones equipped with radio-frequency sensors such as AESA radar and passive electronic surveillance measures (PESM).

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The sellers in the market are facing high levels of uncertainty due to economic depression, and as a result, customers are shifting their focus from quantity to quality. The increasing emphasis on cost efficiency for the development and procurement of aircraft and the low-cost of maintenance will make it difficult for the vendors to maintain a balance between cost and quality. The key focus of businesses will be on the recognition of various market trends to survive in the market during the forecast period.

Key vendors in the market are -

  • Boeing
  • Northrop Grumman
  • Tupolev
  • Xi'an Aircraft Industry

Segmentation based on type of aircraft engine and analysis of the strategic bomber market

  • Turbofan
  • Turbojet
  • Turboprop

According to the analyst at Technavio, the turbofan segment will dominate the market, accounting for approximately 74% of the total market share by 2020. Turbofan engines are also called bypass jets and are more efficient than its counterparts. These engines are the modern version of aircraft turbine engines and are found in most of the new generation supersonic strategic bombers as they help to ensure superior operational capability.  

Segmentation based on geography and analysis of the strategic bomber market

  • America
  • APAC
  • EMEA

During 2015, the Americas was the largest market for strategic bombers and accounted for around 54% of the total market share. Increasing investments of the Department of Defense (DoD) in the procurement, sustainment, and modernization of advanced strategic bombers will aid in the growth of this market in the Americas.
