    Market Highlights

    Due to the rapid surge in conflicts, terrorism, border confrontations, and other threats, modern airborne electro-optics have become indispensable. Governments all over the globe are extensively investing in the procurement and development of advanced airborne solutions to meet their demands for early warning, surveillance, and reconnaissance. The USA is the largest investor in the military aerial sector across the globe. In addition, the country has the largest military aircraft fleet and it extensively focuses on the development of modern airborne technologies.

    Moreover, countries such as China, India, Germany, and France, are focusing on the development and deployment of stealth aircraft in the forthcoming years to strengthen their aerial defense capabilities. For example, Germany, Spain, and France are engaged in the development of the stealth fighter aircraft called “Future Combat Air System (FCAS)”, which is expected to replace their fleets of Eurofighter Typhoons in the future. With the rapid increase in military aircraft programs along with the increasing need for surveillance and early warning solutions, there is a growing demand for advanced electro-optic sensors.

    Unlike other markets and industries, military/defense was relatively untouched by the pandemic. There were some temporary hiccups in the electro-optical system production mainly due to the supply chain sabotage but the year 2020 remained intact with good demand overall. Even the long-term market perspective seems fruitful with good growth opportunities for the market participants. The market is estimated to grow at a healthy CAGR of 4.8% to reach a value of US$ 3.3 billion by 2027.

    Market Segments' Analysis

    The military airborne electro-optics market is segmented based on the aircraft type, product type, and region. On the basis of aircraft type, the market is segmented into military helicopters, military aircraft, and military UAVs. Among these types, the military aircraft segment held the major market share,  followed by military helicopters, and military UAVs. On the other hand, the military UAV segment is expected to witness the fastest market growth during the forecast period due to a large focus of several countries for the production of UAVs. Also, in recent years, UAVs are largely being equipped with these electro-optic solutions, which help in enabling efficient target identification along with providing wide-area surveillance, even under unfavorable weather and light conditions.

    Based on the product type, the market is classified into multispectral and hyperspectral electro-optic solutions. between both product types, multispectral electro-optics is expected to remain the dominant as well as the faster-growing market segment during the forecast period. This is because the multispectral systems are of a lower cost and provide effective results for all types of military aircraft. On the other hand, hyperspectral electro-optic systems are very high in cost and are therefore rarely used in the defense industry.

    In terms of regions, North America is expected to remain the largest market for military airborne electro-optics during the forecast period. This region is home to several major companies, such as L3 Harris Technologies Ltd., Northrop Grumman, Lockheed Martin Corporation, and Raytheon Technologies Corporation, which make the region the growth engine of the global market. Similarly, Asia-Pacific is likely to be the fastest-growing region in the market during the forecast period, due to the rising military expenditure in countries such as China, Japan, India, and South Korea.
