This Frost & Sullivan research service titled Asia Pacific Land Defense Systems Market Outlook provides an in-depth analysis of the market drivers and restraints, industry structure, and competitive environment, besides dealing with the challenges and issues faced by market participants. In this research, Frost & Sullivan's expert analysts thoroughly examine the following markets: armored vehicles, artillery, missiles, command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C4ISR) technologies, and firearms.
Ageing Systems Driving the Need for Upgrades and Replacements in the Asia Pacific Land Defense Systems Market
The growing need to implement modern technologies to replace ageing equipment has boosted prospects for the Asia Pacific land defense systems market. Threats in the form of illegal trafficking, piracy, and terrorism are rampant across the region, and it is vital for countries to be properly equipped to thwart these attacks. Ageing defense systems have increased the importance of military upgrades and replacements in this region. Both local and foreign defense contractors have opportunities to showcase modern land defense systems to better equip countries in Asia Pacific and augment defense mechanisms. Modern land defense technology is expected to drive the market for highly capable, reliable, and cost-efficient systems to protect against foreign and domestic threats. "Network-centric warfare (NCW) is one of the factors triggering military modernization and a more network-oriented military defense structure," notes the analyst of this research service. "With the world shifting toward NCW, priorities are placed in information superiority over enemy forces, providing an advantage early in battle." Interoperability between different land defense systems will offer Asia Pacific countries the advantage of situational awareness and ramp up defense capabilities.
Although market prospects look upbeat, high procurement costs are deterring smaller nations from upgrading their land defense systems. Next-generation land defense systems easily cost up to millions and thus, are very expensive for developing countries, which are yet to make their procurement decisions. These systems are increasing in cost as the research and development costs involved are exorbitant. With developed countries looking to produce their own capabilities in this segment, the funding for technological improvements will continue to rise, increasing the price and costs for end users. High investments in the development of these land defense systems are limiting the growth of the local land defense systems industry, and most countries are still acquiring systems from foreign companies. Having a good relationship with targeted countries will provide better understanding of the needs and requirements of the respective governments in terms of defense procurement practices. Through these relationships and strategic alliances with local companies, a good competitive strategy can be worked out to improve a country’s capability to develop indigenous land defense systems without depending on western expertise.
Going forward, communication systems, radars, and ISR systems are expected to see growth in the land defense systems market together with other market segments such as armored vehicles, missiles, artillery, and firearms. Information superiority, situational awareness, and network-centric systems are the key factors in modern defense tactics, which also determine the direction of future military land defense systems upgrade and procurement programs. Participants in this space must intensify research and development effort to unleash more reliable and cost-effective products. Moreover, strategic alliances must be established with local business partners to facilitate market penetration. Apart from improving chances of local presence, such initiatives would also promote system interoperability.
