"Currently, cost/safety/time benefits coupled with the modernisation programme of the Indian Armed Forces are the two most important factors driving this market," notes Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Srinivas Sishtla. "These factors will continue to be the most important drivers for the market over the long term."
The need for cost savings in terms of original equipment wear and tear, fuel, man-hours and soldier safety during training will boost market prospects. Moreover, the need for training arising as a result of the procurement of new military equipment under the modernisation programme of the Indian Armed Forces will have a significant impact on this market.
With the Indian Armed Forces' requirement of no cost–no commitment trials on full-fledged simulators for technical evaluation and the lowest price preference, the biggest challenge is to manufacture low-cost, yet technologically advanced simulators.
"For overseas as well as indigenous companies, strategic alliances like joint ventures, memorandum of understandings/agreements, offset partnership are very significant," advises Sishtla. "Choosing the right company to forge an alliance with in terms of technical know-how, local market knowledge, brand image and past relations with the Indian military and paramilitary forces will be a vital success factor."
Indian software companies will also have a major role to play in this market. Their role will be as partners in designing and supplying software for simulators.
