Key Market Trends

The Sea Segment is Expected Witness Significant Growth During the Forecast Period

The Sea segment of the market is expected to witness growth during the forecast period owing to the increasing investments towards enhancing the capabilities of maritime surveillance. The procurement of patrol vessels, USVs, as well as modernization of existing enemy detection and threat-warning systems with advanced, newer-generation systems onboard naval vessels, is anticipated to drive the growth of the segment. For instance, in February 2020, the Brazilian Navy signed a contract worth USD 6.4 million with Ghenova to complete the design of two Macaé-class offshore patrol boats. The United States is also integrating advanced radar technologies on-board their naval vessels. For instance, the US Navy awarded a contract worth USD 250 million to Raytheon to install SPY-6 family of air and missile defense radars in two DDG-51 Flight III destroyers. In addition to this, the Navy plans to install SPY-6 radar on future amphibious assault ships and second Ford-class aircraft carriers that are planned to be inducted in the coming future. Such factors are expected to accelerate the growth of the sea segment of the market during the forecast period.

North America Dominates the Market in terms of Market Share

The North America region currently dominates the market and is expected to continue its domination during the forecast period. This is mainly due to the procurement of various land, air, sea, and space ISR systems by the US and Canada governments. The US armed forces are currently procuring and modernizing its ISR platforms across Airforce, Army, and Navy. The US Navy is in plans to replace EP-3E ARIES II, a manned ISR platform with MQ-4C Triton. These new UAVs will perform signals intelligence missions from 2021 and continue to perform maritime surveillance missions. Also, the US Marine Corps along with the Navy is planning to invest in surface unmanned capabilities, like large and medium unmanned surface vehicles, that can carry various payloads to include ISR. The Airforce is also increasing its investments into artificial intelligence/machine learning, deep learning, computer vision technologies that will decrease the time of searching and analyzing the data. Canada is also increasing its investments in the procurement of ISR platforms with advanced sensors. Such investments are anticipated to bolster the growth of the market in the coming years.
