What are the key drivers behind recent market changes?
The defense ministries around the world are taking significant cost cutting initiatives across their militaries in order to cope with their reduced financial resources. Governments are downsizing their militaries and cutting down on training budgets. As a result, militaries are currently focusing on attaining cheaper and more effective solutions for their training requirements. Many countries have claimed to have reorganized their militaries, so that they are smaller but more powerful, they intend to achieve the same through innovative simulation and virtual training systems. Governments consider live training programs to be expensive and logistically difficult, whereas simulators area more cost effective and agile alternative. Therefore, militaries are gradually moving towards a balanced mix of live training and simulator training for their forces. For example, Air Force pilots undergo extensive flight training in academies and the live flight training exercises are very expensive. The US Air Force claims to spend approximately US$2.9 million to train a fighter jet pilot and US$600,000 to train an airlift pilot. The militaries are incorporating flight simulators in order to cut down on the live flight training hours which results in significant cost savings. Most of the leading military training and simulation suppliers have recorded significant revenue growth and do not expect any slowdown as their customers continue to look towards simulators as a way to reduce costs, while improving the readiness of their pilots. While much of the growth in the military simulation market has been generated by orders for new simulators, orders for existing equipment upgrades are also contributing to the total market.
