Growing traction for 8x8 vehicles found in emerging markets
Recent years have witnessed robust spending on 8x8 armored vehicles by emerging Asian and Middle eastern markets with a relatively slower pace of growth found in traditional markets, such as the US and Europe. Driven by territorial disputes and the need to curb the growing threat from terrorism groups, countries such as China, South Korea, India and Saudi Arabia are undertaking significant 8x8 armored vehicle procurement programs to boost the capabilities of their armed forces. Focus on indigenous development of such vehicles, especially in several Asian countries, is also accelerating the growth of the sector in the region.
Demand from large global spenders leading to several new launches
Historically, heavy armored vehicles such as MBTs and IFVs have been built on tracked vehicles, while wheeled vehicles were predominantly used for light reconnaissance and armed area control operations. However, over the years, wheeled vehicles have witnessed increased traction, with countries across the globe preferring wheeled platforms over tracked ones. The 8x8 wheeled armored vehicles have been in use for several decades now, with many European countries taking a major initiative to replace their tracked APCs with 8x8 wheeled platforms.
These vehicles are currently being used by a wide end user group, including militaries as well as homeland security departments. These vehicles are primarily designed to be used by militaries across the globe for battlefield operations, and find primary application with armies and navies. Their use by airforce is mostly limited to crash rescue operations and firefighting. Additionally, 8x8 vehicles are increasingly being used by homeland security departments such as the police, border security, and special response teams for their respective operations.
