Commercial helicopters' fleet of the leading countries 2018

The leading countries in the world with the highest number of helicopters in 2018 (in units)

Commercial helicopters' fleet of the leading countries 2018 The United States has by far the largest fleet of commercial helicopters in the world, with 9,393 helicopters in 2018. This is over four times higher than the next largest fleet, that of Canada.
Uses for commercial helicopters

Commercial helicopters serve a variety of functions across the world. Some notable uses are for: exploration in the oil and gas industry, medical evacuations from difficult to reach places, policing operations, tourism, charter flights, and filming for both film and television news. Excluded are military helicopters, which significantly outnumber commercial helicopters.

Commercial helicopter market

In 2017, worldwide sales of commercial helicopters amounted to just under five billion U.S. dollars. The largest manufacturer at that time was Airbus, closely followed by the Robinson Helicopter Company and Bell Helicopters. While the number of helicopters sold annually has fallen somewhat over the last five years, the overall fleet size is expected to grow over the mid- to long-term, reaching around 37,000 helicopters in 2036.
