Aerospace and Defence C4Isr Market

The Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance & Reconnaissance (C4ISR) market is projected to grow at a CAGR 2.89% rate during the forecast period. Factor such as integration of C4ISR systems into existing platforms is driving the market. The integration facilitates data sharing and provides advanced intelligence capabilities as well as operational planning capabilities. Various technological advancements in the market such as cyber-defense, combat systems, and wind shear technology, among others, have led to the development of enhanced C4ISR systems.

The surveillance & reconnaissance segment is projected to account for the largest share of the market during the forecast period. Growth in the demand for various surveillance and reconnaissance systems such as radars, sonar, UAVs, and electro-optic sensors, among others, has led to the growth of this segment.

The land segment dominates the market in terms of market size, and is expected to continue its dominance over the next five years. Investments in various command & control as well as communication systems for land platform to improve interoperability have led to the growth of the C4ISR market for land segment.

The products segment is projected to have a larger share during the forecast period. Various militaries around the world are spending on upgradation of communication & networking systems to ensure secure communication and integration of other platforms with C4ISR systems. In addition, investments in various application software to manage and command various subsystems are also leading to an increasing demand for C4ISR products.

The defense users are the major contributors to this market. The rise in defense spending for upgradation of military systems and acquisition of new systems are the major factors leading to the growth of the defense segment.

The Asia Pacific region is expected to exhibit the highest growth rate for the C4ISR market. The market growth in the Asia Pacific region is attributed to the increased military spending in countries such as India, South Korea, and China. With geopolitical tensions in the South China Sea and border issues in multiple countries, procurement of C4ISR systems is estimated to increase across the region. China, South Korea, Japan, and Indonesia are the key growth countries in this region.

Key market players include Raytheon (US), Northrop Grumman (US), Lockheed Martin (US), Rockwell Collins (US), Leonardo (Italy), BAE Systems (UK), Thales (France), and Elbit Systems (Israel).
