Stratview Research publishes a new report titled C4ISR Systems Market which is segmented by Platform Type (Land, Airborne, Naval, and Space), by Application Type, (Command and Control; Communication; Computers; Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance; and Electronic Warfare), by Solution Type (Products and Services), by End-User Type (Defense and Commercial), and by Region (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World).
The C4ISR systems market was estimated at USD 120 billion in 2021 and is likely to grow at a CAGR of 4.14% during 2022-2028 to reach USD 159.89 billion in 2028.
What are C4ISR Systems?
Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) Systems are a group of integrated military technologies that enable commanders to gather and process information, communicate with various units, and make informed decisions during various operations. C4ISR systems improve situational awareness, and resource coordination, ultimately boosting the overall effectiveness and efficiency of military operations.
The growth in the global C4ISR systems market is driven by a number of factors including–
- Rising need for enhanced integrated situational awareness – In today’s complex battlefield, militaries need to be able to quickly and accurately gather and share information in order to make informed decisions. C4ISR systems provide the technologies necessary to achieve this goal. The US government is planning to invest in the development of small satellite constellations in the Low Earth Orbit (LEO) to obtain enhanced space-based SA capabilities.
In January 2023, a business unit of Raytheon Technologies Corporation US – Raytheon Intelligence & Space (RI&S) was awarded a contract to develop a prototype missile track custody (MTC) – the US Space Force’s first medium earth orbit missile tracking system for the US Space Force.
- Rising modernization and upgradation – Global defense investments and expenditure has been rising continuously in the last decade. Governments are focusing on innovations and modernization in the military systems and upgrading weapons and defense products. This simultaneously increases the demand for advanced C4ISR systems to replace outdated technologies.
- Geopolitical Tensions – Security threats and geopolitical tensions across the globe are on the rise. The need for real-time intelligence and effective surveillance in military operations and border security fosters the deployment of sophisticated surveillance and reconnaissance systems within C4ISR frameworks. This augments defense capabilities further driving the adoption of C4ISR systems to enhance situational awareness, and response capabilities and allow informed decisions.
- Technological advancements and network-centric warfare – Rapid advancements in technologies, communication, data processing, etc. have facilitated the development of more capable and interconnected C4ISR systems. The shift towards innovative network-centric warfare strategies also propels the demand for integrated C4ISR systems.
Global C4ISR Systems Market Report Segments:
The market is segmented into the platform type as Land, Airborne, Naval, and Space. The land segment currently dominates the market and is likely to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period, driven by the high allocation of the defense budget coupled with a greater demand for the procurement of command & control and communications systems. Airborne, the second largest segment, is likely to witness the highest growth during the forecast period, driven by increasing demand for UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) and a greater need for intelligence gathering.
Based on the application type, the market is segmented into Command & Control; Communication; Computers; Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR); and Electronic Warfare. The ISR segment is likely to maintain its dominance during the forecast period, driven by advancements in the ISR systems including radars, sonars, and electro-optic sensors as well as rising demand for ISR systems to stay ahead of their opponents. The communication segment is likely to grow the highest during the same period, driven by a higher focus on the upgrade of communication systems.
Based on the regions, North America is expected to remain the most dominant market during the forecast period. The USA is likely to remain the growth engine of the region’s market during the same period. A high defense budget coupled with the presence of all the major C4ISR system providers is the driving force behind the dominance of the region’s market.
Asia-Pacific is likely to witness the highest growth during the same period, primarily driven by the rising defense budget of the major Asian economies. China, India, and South Korea are the major markets for C4ISR systems in the region and are likely to create most of the demand for these systems in the coming years.
Europe also holds a considerable share of the market but is likely to grow at a modest growth during the forecast period. Depleting defense budgets of major European economies is the prime factor for the relatively low demand for C4ISR systems in the region. Russia, The UK, France, and Germany are the major markets for C4ISR systems in Europe.
