Demand for civil light helicopters is expected to increase over the next few years before decreasing slightly about 2018, said Andrew Black, an analyst at Hawk Associates. Production of civil light helicopters represents a 73% market share, compared to the 15% market share held by military medium and heavy helicopters, he said. New technologies could help drive helicopter production, said at least one executive in the industry.
