COVID-19 Impact:

Suspended Assembly and Delivery of Defense Equipment to Dwindle Market

The defense industry has experienced a plunged demand for military equipment during the pandemic. Moreover, the diminished production rate of tier three and tier four suppliers has slowed down the availability of electronic warfare, thus delaying the delivery of equipment. As per the study conducted by Fortune Business Insights, the ministry of defense will cover payments only for existing contracts that are already under execution, thus eliminating the need for new procurement. However, the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) will continue to buy products, issue contracts, and accelerate payments to help small and large businesses amid the global pandemic.

List of the Leading Companies Profiled in the Global Electronic Warfare Market are:

  • Raytheon Technologies Corporation (The U.S.)
  • General Dynamics Corporation (The U.S.)
  • L3Harris Technologies Inc. (The U.S.)
  • The Boeing Company (The U.S.)
  • Leonardo SPA (Italy)
  • Saab AB (Sweden)
  • Teledyne Technologies (The U.S.)
  • Israel Aerospace Industries (Israel)

Market Segments:

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.

Based on equipment, the market is classified into jammers, antennas, radar warning receiver, directed energy weapons, anti-radiation missiles, countermeasure dispenser system (CMDS), directional infrared countermeasures (DIRCM), self-protection suite, and others.

Based on platform, the EW market is segmented into air-based, sea-based, and land-based. The air-based segment is further divided into combat aircraft, airborne early warning & control (AEW&C) aircraft, and UAV.

Geographically, the market is classified into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa.

Driving Factor:

Integration of UAVs & Electronic Warfare Systems to Spur Growth

Over the past few years, the usage of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in 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 situational awareness. It is a major factor that is set to contribute to the market growth in the coming years. Several prominent companies and ruling bodies are investing huge sums in the exploitation of this relationship between electronic warfare and UAVs. However, EE systems are very expensive. Hence, developing countries prefer conventional systems. It may hinder market growth.

Regional Insights:

Presence of Numerous Industry Giants to Favor Growth in Europe

Geographically, North America held a prominent position in 2020. 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 type of 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 developing countries, such as India and China.

Competitive Landscape:

Renowned Companies Focus on Receiving New Contracts from Defense Forces

The market is fragmented with the presence of a large number of companies worldwide. Amongst them, Lockheed Martin Corporation is in the top position on account of its persistent research and development activities to unveil state-of-the-art products in the market. Nowadays, several companies are focusing on bagging new contracts from government agencies to deliver their in-house products.

Below are a couple of the latest industry developments:

  • January 2020: Lockheed Martin Corporation received a new contract from the U.S. Navy. It is worth USD 43 million. It would help the company to upgrade the E-2D AN/ALQ-217 Electronic Support Measures (ESM) system of the E-2D Advanced Hawkeye.
  • October 2020: The Indian Ministry of Defence (MoD) successfully tested the New Generation Anti-Radiation Missile (Rudram-1), India’s first indigenous anti-radiation missile developed by Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO)
