Driving Factors

Military aircraft must be outfitted with sophisticated electronic warfare integrated suites, such as anti-jamming devices because electronic jammers can cause aircraft radar or electrical equipment to malfunction. Due to the ineffectiveness and obsolescence of traditional countermeasure techniques, militaries are upgrading their aircraft with technologically advanced countermeasure techniques such as anti-jammers, radar warning receivers (RWRs), laser warning receivers (LWRs), countermeasure dispenser systems (CMDS), and interference mitigation systems. Such advantages associated with the incorporation of integrated defense electronics products in the defense and military sectors help to drive the defense electronics market forward.


Restraining Factors

Electronic warfare systems, avionics, optronics, communication systems, and command and control systems are examples of defense electronic products that collect and transfer large amounts of sensitive data from handheld, electro-optic, and radar sensors. Communicating and distributing such large amounts of data has an impact on real-time processing speeds and may result in decision-making delays, threatening the execution of critical defense missions. To improve the effectiveness of real-time communication, a sophisticated communication technology infrastructure based on big data and efficient data centers is required. Such infrastructure necessitates significant investment, which is a major impediment to the defense electronics market.


Market Segmentation

The Global Defense Electronics Market share is classified into vertical and platform.

  • The navigation segment is expected to grow at the fastest pace in the global defense electronics market during the forecast period.      

The global defense electronics market is categorized by vertical into navigation, communication & display, C4ISR, electronic warfare, radar, and optronics. Among these, the navigation segment is expected to grow at the fastest pace in the global defense electronics market during the forecast period. These are concerned with systems and technologies for precise location, navigation, and guidance in defence operations. This section contains a variety of equipment and systems designed to provide accurate and dependable navigation in harsh environments. Unmanned systems, such as UAVs (Military Drones) and UGVs, also rely heavily on navigation systems to operate autonomously or remotely. The demand for precise and durable navigation hardware and software solutions for unmanned platforms will increase the navigation segment share. 


  • The airborne segment accounted for the largest share of the global defense electronics market in 2022.

Based on the platform, the global defense electronics market is divided into airborne, marine, land, and space. Among these, the airborne segment accounted for the largest share of the global defense electronics market in 2022. The airborne segment is concerned with systems and technologies specifically designed for use in aircraft and aircraft platforms. It includes a number of electronics and systems that are required for on-board operations and mission success. Furthermore, avionics systems, which include flight control systems for aircraft control, communications, navigation, and tracking, are critical components of the airborne segment. Flight control, cockpit instructions, communications, navigation systems, and surveillance are all included. The demand for advanced avionics is a major driver of airborne segment growth.
