Humanitarian assistance is required in areas that are prone to frequent natural disasters such as Haiti as well as in places that are ravaged by war such as countries in Africa and the Middle East. In response, international organizations and entities have created dedicated fleets of helicopters and other aircraft to provide aid to people in these areas, some of which are hard to reach. For instance, the European Union (EU) has its own humanitarian air service known as ECHO Flight, which the EU has deployed in 2018 to the Ebola-hit Democratic Republic of Congo to transport supplies to aid workers in various parts of the country. Similarly, companies such as Russia-based Utair are known for offering helicopter services for a wide range of operations.

Market Driver

Emergence of Electric VTOL Start-Ups to Favor Market Growth

Rotorcraft services are in high demand owing to the vast array of operations that they can support. These services have been also bolstered by the introduction of vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) capabilities in helicopters. Seeing the lucrative opportunities in this domain, several start-ups have emerged and are offering novel solutions. For example, US-based Joby Aviation is developing S2, its 2-seater electric aircraft that reach a maximum speed of 200mph. Similarly, Germany-based Lilium is developing an all-electric jet with a range of 300km. The company is also creating a network of landing pads across the city of Wessling to launch its air mobility services in 2025. Electric VTOL rotorcraft can take-off, hover, and land vertically, giving them a unique advantage of landing or taking off from confined spaces or remote areas. Growing adoption of EVTOL aircraft is, therefore, expected to surge the helicopter services market growth in the coming years.
