Why did Russian Helicopters’ revenue fall for four years?

The Russian Helicopters holding, founded in 2007, is the only developer and manufacturer of helicopters in the country, one of the world leaders in the helicopter industry. At the beginning of 2017, the state corporation sold 12% stake in Russian Helicopters to a consortium of Middle Eastern investors led by the Russian Direct Investment Fund for $ 300 million.

From the annual financial statements of Russian Helicopters in accordance with IFRS shouldthat the holding’s revenue has been steadily falling over the past four years. At the end of 2017, it amounted to 228 billion rubles, in 2018 – 188.5 billion, in 2019 – 161.5 billion, in 2020 – 146.2 billion rubles.

In 2018, Deputy Prime Minister for Defense Industry Yuri Borisov warned in a conversation with RBC that the peak of the state defense order in aviation has been passed and in subsequent years the volume of the state defense order will decline, since “saturation has come.” “We bought 80–90 helicopters each, and now we have 30–40. Not necessary. The park has been renewed. Enterprises will serve them, support the life cycle, but this is not a bulk purchase. The same situation will come with other types of weapons, ”the Deputy Prime Minister explained.

Against this background, in 2018, the holding developed a program for updating the domestic helicopter fleet. It was supposed to replace all cars older than 25 years by launching a trade-in program or using a leasing scheme. Experts estimated the cost of such a reform in the industry at no less than RUB 350 billion. Until now, a final decision on this issue has not been made by the government.

This June “Russian Helicopters” interested in drones… A subsidiary of the holding, Kumertau Aviation Production Enterprise, posted on the public procurement portal an application for the provision of information and consulting services on the topic “Creation of a technological vertical in the field of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in Russia.”

From the terms of reference it follows that the company expects to enter the Russian and world markets for services for unmanned aerial vehicles. “Despite the fact that the UAV market in Russia and the world today is at the initial stage of its development, we assume that the UAV service market is no less attractive today,” the document says.
