Military Navigation Market by Offering (Hardware, Software, Solution)

Military Navigation Market: Summary

The Global Military Navigation Market is estimated to reach USD 14.6 Billion by 2027 at a CAGR of 6%.

Navigation is defined as the procedure of precisely determining position of someone and plan up the route to reach. It is practised in the field of military to navigate  enemy resources to plan attack strategies and to attain precise location of their own units. The navigation system is used to plan and trace the movement of the fleet accompanied by the armed troops and to perform search & rescue operations of soldiers in less time. The system is very useful in night missions and is used by military in land navigation, aviation navigation, and maritime navigation. 

Military Navigation Market: Drivers & Challenges

Market Drivers:

  • Rising Geopolitical Conflicts

Political instability can be noticed across the globe rising geopolitical instability, regional conflicts, and uncertainty. The world is into a distressing geopolitical phase, which is multiconceptual in nature creating military tensions between the countries. Such conditions can surge the demand for the military navigation system across the globe. The nations are trying to sustain in this phase and spending on the military equipment procurement remarkably. The defence industry can be benefitted from this situation as huge investments are made as a reaction to this geopolitical conflict.

Thus, rising geopolitical conflicts may contribute in the growth of the military navigation market, during the forecast period.

Market Challenges:

  • Poor Accuracy of Inertial Navigation Systems

The inertial navigation system is autonomous in nature, which make it useful in degraded condition such as in tunnel and underwater. However, when the system is used for longer time, the navigation error increases which results in long-term poor accuracy of the whole system. In addition to this, the problem related to heat dissipation is also observed in this system with time. Developing more accurate system, which does not dissipates heat and takes less alignment time can be helpful to the manufacturers.

Thus, poor accuracy of inertial navigation systems may be a challenging factor for the growth of the military navigation Market, during the forecast period.
