Increased competition in the international market of naval equipment
The growth of competition in the modern international market of naval equipment (VMT) is primarily associated with the start of the second “wave” of massive sales of used ships. This is due to the fact that today many states with a powerful fleet are conducting massive reductions, given the lack of the need to maintain expensive servicing ships with their obvious lack of demand. A huge number of proposals on the market for used naval technology shows a significant impact on the international market for new naval equipment.
Taking into account the number of sales in the secondary market, according to TSAMTO, the size of world exports of naval equipment in 2011 will be about $ 6,15 billion, in 2012 - $ 7,3 billion, in 2013 - $ 8,4 billion. In the aggregate, according to the TSAMTO forecast, a moderate growth in sales will be monitored on the international market of naval equipment, with some of the trade transactions on the secondary market of naval equipment will continuously increase in the overall balance of international trade of small armor. The states of Southeast Asia and Latin America, as before, will remain at the center of activity in the market for the sale of ships already in service. At the same time, on the secondary market of naval equipment, proposals will outpace demand.
Regarding new ships, it is necessary to emphasize that now every 3 is the newest army ship under construction in the world, which is initially prepared for export.
In contrast to the leading Western states, many progressive states continue to gradually build up their own naval capabilities. This is exclusively characteristic of the states of the Middle East, the Asian region and North Africa, where an increase in procurement of BMT is expected.
In aggregate, 5 can be identified as the main directions of the development of the world market for naval equipment for the near future (up to 2015).
The 1 th direction is associated with auxiliary support ships. At present, almost all states want to possess the ability to quickly deploy their own armed forces during territorial operations, for which a huge number of ships of the specified type are required. This direction of the formation of naval technology is characteristic of a number of European and Asian countries.
2-th direction with BNK OK and patrol patrol ships and it can be considered particularly actively progressing in the market for TDC. In recent years, the demand for Corvette-class ships with a displacement of 1000-3000, t., With ground-to-air and ground-to-air attack missile armaments, has increased.
3-th direction is associated with an increase in the number of purchases of non-nuclear submarines. Exceptionally this is typical for the states of the Asian region.
The 4 th direction is connected with the shift of emphasis in some countries of Africa, Asia and Latin America to the improvement of coastal protection forces, and not to the modernization of the basic composition of ships.
5-th direction provides for the leasing of transport and auxiliary vessels, as well as patrol boats, due to the cost-saving restrictions in almost all countries on the purchase of the ship.
Holland plans to sell for sale two own frigates of the Holland type. It is known that these are new ships under construction. Previously, they were intended to transfer their own naval forces, however, in April this year due to the government’s decision to reduce the fleet, these ships would be offered to foreign customers.
Germany put up for sale its own 6 class "Type-206A" submarines from its own Navy, according to preliminary data, Thailand will become a client of these naval subs. The Defense Council of this Asian state 25 on April 2011 approved the program submitted by state naval officials for the purchase of 6 submarines Type-206A from the German Navy for $ 257 million.
The British government in October 2010 published the “Tactical review of defense and security”. According to this program, in March 2011 from the combat fleet of the English fleet, the aircraft carrier Ark Royal was launched, which is currently on sale. This year, the United States Navy plans to remove the Type-4 22 frigate: the Cumberland, the Chatham and the Cornwall, which will be put up for sale to foreign customers.
No less vigorously acting in the secondary market and the US Navy. One of the main “goods” is the sale of FFG-7 “Oliver Perry” class frigates, landing craft, destroyers and minesweepers.
In addition, the huge players in the secondary market of naval technology are France, Denmark, Belgium, Spain, Italy and Portugal.
