In case of COVID-19, MEA is highly affected especially South Africa.The MEA helicopter market is majorly affected by the disruption in the supply chain.

Owing to the closure of countries’ borders, the supply chain of several components and parts has been disturbed.South Africa has a few helicopter manufacturers, which produce general aviation helicopters.

The widespread COVID-19 virus has led the manufacturers to suspend their operations or operate with a minimal workforce temporarily.Additionally, the disruption in the supply chain business due to the trade ban has also adversely affected the country’s helicopter manufacturing process.

On the other hand, Saudi Arabian government spends substantial amounts toward its military force, law enforcement teams, and firefighting teams, thereby continuously supporting the teams with upgraded technologies in order to remain mission ready. However, the COVID-19 outbreak in the country has impacted and postponed a number of helicopter procurement deals.
The attack and reconnaissance segment led the MEA helicopters market based on military application in 2020.Attack and reconnaissance helicopters are armed helicopters that primarily serve as attack aircraft capable of attacking ground targets such as enemy infantry, military vehicles, and fortifications.

They are often referred to as helicopter gunships due to their heavy armament.Autocannons, machine guns, rockets, and guided anti-tank missiles can all be used by attack helicopters.

Air-to-air missiles can be carried by some assault helicopters, but they are mainly used for self-defense against other helicopters and low-flying light combat aircraft.The major role of a modern attack and reconnaissance helicopter is to provide direct and effective close air support for ground troops, and to destroy grouped enemy armor in the anti-tank role.

Attack helicopters are also used as a defensive escort for transport helicopters or to supplement lighter reconnaissance helicopters. Growing military warfare around the MEA region is expected to increase the demand of attack and reconnaissance helicopter, thereby driving the MEA helicopters market.
