Key Market Trends

The Military Segment is Expected to Register the Highest Growth Rate During 2020-2025

The military segment of the market studied is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Advances in AI, deep-learning, and robotics are aiding new military capabilities to the armed forces, with its applications ranging from intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance to offense/defense balances and nuclear weapons systems. Countries are also investing in these technologies to improve the operating efficiency of the detection systems, the accuracy of the weapons systems, and enhance battlefield communications. The US Department of Defense (DoD) started Project Maven initiative that aims to bring AI and computer algorithms to war zones. Such investments are expected to fuel the growth of this segment during the forecast period.


The North America Region Dominates Artificial Intelligence and Robotics in the Aerospace and Defense Market, in Terms of Market Share

North America is expected to remain the largest market. This is majorly due to extensive investments of the US government int AI, along with the investments of defense companies, like Lockheed Martin Corporation, Raytheon Company, and Boeing, among others. Development and deployment of robot parking helpers, facial recognition, and robot airport security are also adding a significant share to the growth of the market in this region. In the last couple of years, robotic customer service agents were deployed at Mineta San Jose International Airport to help navigate through the terminal. Additionally, big blue security robot was deployed at LaGuardia Airport to patrol terminal B. Such implementations of technology to improve security and operational efficiency of the airports are also acting as major driving factors in North America.


Competitive Landscape

The artificial intelligence and robotics in the aerospace and defense market is moderately fragmented with several companies involved in developing robotics and AI. Some of the prominent players in the market studied are SITA, Lockheed Martin Corporation, The Boeing Company, Thales Group, and Intel Corporation. The strategic investments and new business models may help companies to manufacture and provide AI-based solutions for their customers. Boeing launched disruptive computing and networks (DC&N) into research and development of solutions in AI, complex systems optimization, and secure communications for government and commercial applications. The partnerships and acquisitions of the local companies that have software and hardware capabilities compatible with machine learning and robotics are expected to increase the profitability of the key players in the aerospace and defense market.
