Drivers & Restraints-
Integration of UAVs & Electronic Warfare Systems to Spur Growth
Over the past few years, the usage of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in the military forces across the globe has surged. It occurred because of the monitoring, imagery mapping, and surveillance of combat operations. The integration of surveillance data and imagery with EW can provide more information about the situational awareness. It is a major factor that is set to contribute to the electronic warfare market growth in the coming years. Several prominent companies and ruling bodies are investing huge sums in the exploitation of this relationship between the EW and the UAVs. However, EE systems are very expensive. Hence, the developing countries prefer conventional systems. It may hinder the market growth.
Electronic Support Segment to Lead Owing to Rising Demand for ISR from Defense Sector
In terms of domain, the market is segregated into electronic support, electronic protection, and electronic attack. Out of these, the electronic support segment is expected to exhibit the largest electronic warfare market share in the coming years and remain in the leading position. This growth is attributable to the high demand for intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) techniques and equipment from the defense sector worldwide.
Presence of Numerous Industry Giants to Favor Growth in Europe
Geographically, North America held USD 9.28 billion in terms of revenue in 2018. This growth is attributable to the rising terrorism, as well as political and territorial disputes occurring in this region. In addition to that, the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) is set to invest approximately USD 25.8 billion in the research, development, test, and evaluation (RDT&E) in the coming years. Also, it is planning to spend around USD 27.8 billion to procure electronic warfare systems. It would also propel the market growth in this region.
Europe, on the other hand, is set to remain in the second position stoked by the presence of major companies, such as Saab AB, BAE Systems, and Thales Group in this region. Also, the rising investments in the development and procurement of electronic warfare systems would augment growth. Asia Pacific would exhibit rapid growth backed by the need to enhance the warfighting capabilities of the defense forces in the developing countries, such as India and China.
