28 Sep 12. Research and Markets announced the addition of the “Armored Military Vehicle Manufacturing” report to their offering. The US armored vehicle manufacturing industry includes about 50 companies with combined annual revenue of about $11 billion. Revenue can fluctuate markedly depending on the level of global conflict. Major companies include Textron, General Dynamics, Oshkosh Corporation, AM General, and certain US operations of UK-based BAE Systems. Demand is driven by the US military budget, which typically changes with perceived threats to US national security. The profitability of individual companies depends on the effective management of subcontractors and raw materials costs and technological expertise. Large companies enjoy economies of scale in design, manufacturing, and purchasing. While small companies often introduce innovation, large companies are often able to adapt more quickly to the evolving demands of modern warfare. Small companies can compete by providing niche products to prime contractors, and by forming joint ventures with larger contractors. The industry is capital-intensive: average annual revenue per employee is about $675,000. (Source: Yahoo!/BUSINESS WIRE)
