Fighter Aircraft Market Report
An estimated 4,000 fighters, valued at $260 billion, are forecast to be procured over the next 15 years.
Despite the rapid increase in Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) numbers worldwide and future plans for Uninhabited Combat Air Vehicles (UCAVs), the fighter market is still buoyant. Fighter programmes are planned to continue well into the 2020s in the US, Russia, China, India and Sweden, while Japan, Indonesia, South Korea and Turkey have plans to enter the fighter market with their own indigenous designs. The largest fighter programme is of course the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, with over 3,000 of which currently planned for adoption by 12 countries.
Fighter requirements have been identified in 27 countries, while active fighter procurement programmes are also under way in 35 countries.
