Electronic Warfare Market Size, Share, Trends, Growth, Analysis, Research

Electronic Warfare Market: Summary

The Global Electronic Warfare Market is estimated to reach USD 38.6 Billion by 2027 at a CAGR of 5.1 %.

Electronic warfare involves the use of electromagnetic spectrum to analyze, intercept, manipulate or crush the enemy’s use of spectrum. It uses usually laser light or radio waves to disable or confuse the enemy’s attack. The use of signals such as radar, radio or infrared to locating, protecting, detecting, analyzing, jamming and communicating is electronic warfare.

Electronic Warfare Market: Drivers & Restraints

Market Drivers:

  • High Spending in Defense & Military Sector

The world’s armed forces require the latest technology to protect and provide successful outcome’s in any war and post-conflict situation. For this, it is essential to design the next generation of electronic warfare (EW) technology. Higher spending on defense & military sectors for the electronic warfare system is projected to fuel the market growth. For instance, in 2019, the Pentagon wants to increase procurement funding by 9.7% for electronic warfare research & development, evaluation, and test. Also, Trump Administration will increase investment in the Department of Defense (DoD) budget, especially in improving the capability of electronic warfare by USD 1.48 billion ,USD 1.53 billion and USD 1.41 billion in 2021, 2022 and 2023, respectively.

  • Introduction of Cognitive Systems into Electronic Warfare Technologies

Also known as machine learning or Artificial Intelligence (AI), the cognitive systems can learn, sense and communicate and interact naturally with the environment. Applying cognitive systems to electronic warfare helps in developing defense researchers to identify patterns and expand hypotheses that can result in broad improvements across multiple systems. Also, they have the ability to detect an unknown threat in a hostile environment with the help of machine learning algorithms and artificial intelligence.

Thus, adding cognitive systems into electronic warfare technologies is expected to boost market growth during the forecast period.

Market Restraints:

  • Focus of Emerging Economies on Conventional Warfare Systems

Today, the military and defense sector require a new array of technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), cyber technology, robotics, hypersonic, and others. Although the dangers, ramifications and risks of these weapons are not yet widely recognized. Due to technological limitations and high cost in emerging economies, these countries rely more on battlefield tactics and use conventional weapons.

Thus, lower penetration of electronic warfare in emerging economies acts as a restraining factor for electronic warfare market growth during the forecast period.
