Airborne Segment to Emerge as Dominant End User; Electronic Warfare to Emerge as Lead Application Segment

Surveillance and reconnaissance, computer, tactical communication, electronic warfare, command and control, and others are the various application segments in the global C4ISR market. The others sector includes radar, sensor, advanced electronically scanned array, GPS, and countermeasures. Of these, electronic warfare constituted the emerged dominant in the global market, followed by surveillance & reconnaissance and tactical communication segments. Increasing cross-border tensions are expected to seal the dominance of the electronic warfare segment through the course of the forecast period.

Based on end user, the global C4ISR market is segmented into airborne, land, and naval. Of these, the airborne segment led the market with a share of 56.5% in 2016. The rising demand for C4ISR from airborne markets, especially in countries such as India and China is expected to boost the segment. Besides this, the increasing demand for technologies for advanced border protection is expected to demand for C4ISR from the airborne segment. Moreover, increased acquisitions of unmanned aerial combat vehicles and unmanned aerial vehicles is the major factor giving impetus to the airborne segment in the C4ISR market during the forecast period of 2017 – 2025.

Asia Pacific to Emerge Dominant in Forthcoming Years

Regionally, the global C4ISR market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and Latin America. Among these regions, North America emerged dominant with a share of 32.3% in the overall market in 2016. However, it is expected to lose its dominance to Asia Pacific during the forecast period, relegating to the position of the second-leading regional market. Europe, which emerged as the second most lucrative market for C4ISR in 2016, is expected show steady growth during the forecast period.

In North America, the rising demand from the electronic warfare segment is helping the market gain momentum. Besides this, governments across the region are consciously implementing measures and the latest technologies to annihilate terror activities. This is a chief driver of the C4ISR market in the region. In Asia Pacific the market is forecast to gain from the rising demand from India, China, Japan, and rest of the region. As governments across these nations look for the latest technologies to thwart any terror plots, the demand from the Asia Pacific market will continue to increase. Among the aforementioned nations China emerged dominant in 2016, exhibiting high spending towards defense and military forces.

Global C4ISR Market: Overview

C4ISR systems provide command, control and communications for the air force to offer benefits in improving protection to the military forces, improve situational awareness capabilities and allow users to quickly analyze the environment in a combat situation. In addition, C4ISR systems provide finding, fixing, tracking, targeting, engaging and assessing (F2T2EA) for the navy to offer improve situational awareness capabilities.

One of the major factor driving the market is the increasing demand for mobile command systems. For instance, the U.S. involvement in wars in the Middle East has highlighted the necessity for systems to allow militaries to work in hostile and remote environments. Military forces require C4ISR solutions in order to improve situational awareness capabilities and allow users to quickly analyze the environment in a combat situation and prevent loss of life. In particular, ongoing threats of terrorism in the Middle East have enlarged the need for rapid deployable solutions that provide C4ISR capabilities to intelligence and military units. In addition, demand for C4ISR systems is anticipated to rise with the greater execution of Network Centric Warfare (NCW) rules and regulations, as C4ISR systems are basically used for observation and surveillance with the use of data and communication systems.

Global C4ISR Market: Key Market Segments

Surveillance and reconnaissance, computer, tactical communication, electronic warfare, command and control, and others are the various application of the C4ISR market. The others sector includes radar, sensor, advanced electronically scanned array, GPS, and countermeasures. Among various application of the C4ISR market, electronic warfare held the major market share in 2016 and is expected to be the same during the forecast period of 2017 – 2025. Countries such as China, Brazil, and UAE are focusing on acquiring better C4ISR systems that include command systems, communication systems, radars, computers, EO/IR systems, and electronic warfare systems that aid in better protection of the military forces. Due to this factor, the market for C4ISR is expected to expand during the forecast period 2017 – 2025.

The control, command, computers, communication, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C4ISR) market has been segmented on the basis of end user into airborne, land, and naval.
