AI in Military Market Size, Share, Trends, Growth, Analysis, Research

AI in Military Market: Summary

The Global AI in Military Market is estimated to reach USD 18.1 Billion by 2024 at a CAGR of 14.9 %.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is termed as simulation of the human intelligence into the computer system to perform particular tast or role. Now-a-days, AI is emerged as the crucial component of the modern warfare as it possess higher ability to handle the data in more efficient manner. In military sector, AI is used for autonomous targeting, survillence and monitoring, security, cyber defense, cyber warfare and to carry out other important military functions. Due to its high efficiency, it is widely adopted in fighter aircrafts, helicopters and Military Fighting Vehicles (MFVs). Some of the emerging economies across the globe are incorporating AI in military applications to promote safety and security.

AI In Military Market: Drivers & RestrAInts

Market Drivers:

  • Rising Demand for Big Data Analytics

The demand for Artificial Intelligence is growing, owing to the adoption of big data analytics. Big data in military is used for analysing and  systematically extract information from the data sets and helps defense leaders to make better decisions. It can process the information about its equipments, trAIning, and installations which can improve the overall efficiency of AI in military. This has attributed to use big data for managing the larger amount of data which is generated by military officials dAIly. It reduce the chances of cyber attack from other countries mAIntAIning the data security of military. Hence, rising demand for big data analytics is expected to drive the AI in military market during the forecast period.

  • Increasing Demand for Cloud Services

Increasing demand for cloud services accesses Al-based war planning by storing the private military data and also by providing the computing power. It also enables the warfighter with data and mAIntAIning the robust technological advantage. According to the US military, cloud service advance the ground operations by direct access to artificial intelligence.

Therefore, the increasing demand for cloud services is expected to drive the AI in military market during the forecast period.


Market RestrAInts:

  • AI-based surveillance and Weapon Systems used by Governments

The growth of AI in military market is mAInly impacted due to reduction in company’s association with government for the AI-based surveillance and Weapon Systems. According to the Artificial Intelligence and National Security report by Congressional Research Service, some of the giants operating in the AI are cancelling the existing contracts with the government. For instance, Google announced that it has cancelled the government contract with the robotics companies, Boston Dynamics and Schaft, and also cancelled the future contracts for the AI in surveillance or weapon systems with government. .
