    Market Insights

    The military embedded system market was estimated at US$ 1.52 Billion in 2021 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.4% during 2022-2028 to reach US$ 2.67 Billion in 2028.

    An embedded system is an amalgamation of hardware and software designed to perform specific computing tasks, unlike a general-purpose computer, which is engineered to manage a wide range of processing tasks. A typical embedded system is engineered to perform explicit tasks requiring lesser resources. Therefore, engineers may optimize size, cost, and power consumption while increasing the system's ruggedness, performance, use, and reliability. Embedded systems have numerous military applications as these systems are typically designed to real-time time constraints that ensure response deadlines which are crucial for military operations. The military’s embedded systems include intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, communication, remote operations, and cyber security.

    The expansion of the military embedded systems market is intensified with multi-core processors and wireless technologies due to increased modern electronic warfare and network-centric operations. The use of wireless and cloud computing technologies in the military has increased the demand for military embedded systems. On the contrary, a huge cost is incurred for obtaining certification for systems design after systems upgrades made by manufacturers. This is due to the increased complexity of designs with technology advancements and stiff regulations concerning system design certifications.

    Technological advancement in military embedded systems is a major factor contributing to the growth of the global military embedded systems market during the forecast period. According to Phys.org (a science, research, and technology news website), advanced embedded systems rarely consist of a single microcontroller. Instead, these consist of computing systems with several processors, accelerators, memories, hardware, peripherals, and buses. It provides high performance as well as high efficiency to military equipment. According to the Linux Information Project (LINFO), embedded systems are a crucial part of control systems for military and defense equipment. Increasing military and defense expenditure and research and development in military equipment majorly contribute to the growth of the global military embedded systems market during the forecast period.

    Rising research and development in hardware for embedded systems and System on Chip (SoC) design contributes to the growth of the global military embedded systems market during the forecast period. According to the Open Innovations Framework Program (FRUCT), under the European Space Agency project, the Space wire standard ECSS-E-50-12A was developed by international efforts. It aims to develop embedded system hardware with requirements such as reliability, low power consumption, compact implementation in chips, EMC, etc. Moreover, research and development in wireless communication technologies that support military communications (tactical communication) also promote market growth. For instance, software-defined radio is a radio communication technology in which components are implemented using software instead of hardware on a computer or embedded system. It offers secured wireless nodes allowing different military devices to communicate with each other in a protected location. Its development and high adoption contribute to the growth of the global military embedded systems market during the forecast period.  However, system design certification for system up-gradation is a major factor restraining the growth of the global military embedded systems market during the forecast period.

    Segment Analysis

    Based on the application, the market is bifurcated into combat/vetronics, command & control, communication equipment, computers & consoles, cyber/networking, electronic warfare equipment, and ISR (intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance). During the forecast period, electronic warfare equipment will register the highest growth in the military embedded system market. The growth is mainly attributed to ongoing technological developments in the potentiality of anti-stealth radars, air defense, cruise missiles, munitions, and next-generation aircraft.

    Based on the platform, the market is segmented into ground, aerial, and marine. Ground-based system accounts for the largest market share in 2021. The developments in ground-based systems, such as armored vehicles, soldier systems, weapon systems, and other autonomous systems, immensely depend on embedded systems. They are a major driving factor for the highest revenue share of the ground-based systems. These ground-based systems can be used for defensive as well as offensive purposes. These developments will fetch investments for the modernization of the military, ultimately leading to the growth of the global military embedded systems market.  

    In terms of regions, North America will likely maintain its supremacy in the military embedded system market throughout the forecast period. The high military investment by the United States government is expected to facilitate the adoption of military embedded systems in the defense sector of the US. The increasing investment in institutional reforms increased funding in acquiring defense equipment and advanced military capabilities that use embedded systems, propelling the global military embedded systems market. The U.S. government providing military aid to countries like Japan and South Korea and stringent policies laid down by the US government to cope with terrorism and internal security threats are the key reasons for the market’s growth.

    Concurrently, Asia Pacific is expected to witness the fastest growth in the global military embedded system market during the forecast period.  The key factors responsible for the swift growth are the continuous up-gradation in the military and defense sector by upgrading warfare platform technologies. Major countries, including China, India, and Japan, are investing a huge amount in the up-gradation and advancement of the military sector by introducing advanced communication devices and related platforms in defense. As per the Center of the International Maritime Security (Maryland), countries such as the Philippines, Singapore, Vietnam, Taiwan, Japan, and Korea are proactively increasing their vigilance to grab an overall situational awareness with the deployment of optimized intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) systems for sea, air, and land domains. The government's increasing focus on deploying intelligent systems boosts the market growth.

    Key Players

    There is stiff competition in the military embedded system market. The growth of the companies is directly dependent on the industry conditions and government support.
