Global Amphibious Landing Craft, Air Cushion Market: Drivers and Restraints
The continuous growth in seaborne trades is prompting governments across the world to raise their maritime security budgets, which in turn is working in favor of the growth of the global amphibious landing craft, air cushion market. In addition, the increasing investments by governments in the modernization and replenishment programs of old models is augmenting the market. Moreover, the increasing demand for smaller and faster landing crafts for military applications in regions such as the Middle East, Latin America, and Asia Pacific is fuelling the market.
However, budgetary constraints and strict regulations on arms transfer are negatively impacting the growth of the market. The reduced spending by the U.S. government on the procurement of landing crafts is resulting in decreased revenue generation from military applications. Nevertheless, the growing use of these crafts for commercial purposes in the country is likely to bode well for the growth of the overall market in the foreseeable future. Furthermore, the rising investments by the China government to strengthen its amphibious assault capability are compelling other nations such as Russia, Japan, and India to build theirs, thereby creating ample growth opportunities for the growth of the market.
