The air-based C4ISR market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.04% during the forecast period. The growth in the airborne C4ISR market is driven by increased acquisition of unmanned aerial vehicles. Saudi Arabia, due to better border protection and surveillance, will be one of the fastest growing countries in the air-based C4ISR platform. The demand for electronic support/counter measures (ESM/ECM), airborne C2, and surveillance/maritime patrol aircraft is expected to grow steadily due to the increasing need for total situational awareness, survivability, and air superiority. India and China are also investing heavily in the development and purchase of unmanned aerial vehicles. The Defense Research and Development Organization is leading the charge in India to develop new UAVs like Rustom, AURA, and Nishant. Growth in the air-based C4ISR market will be led by the Asia-Pacific region. This region will see maximum growth due to the rising economic prosperity and increase in threat perception.

Increased C4ISR Spending in Developing Countries

The military is evolving at a fast rate, propelled by developments in the industry and by the cutting-edge capabilities emerging from Pentagon research organizations like the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. APAC, which is expected to grow significantly as compared to the other regions, consists of countries with high military expenditure, such as India and China. With geopolitical tensions in the South China Sea and border issues in multiple countries, procurement of C4ISR will increase across the region. China, South Korea, Japan, and Indonesia are the key growth countries in this region. Forced modernization efforts across the Asia-Pacific region are also expected to increase the procurement of C4ISR systems. Since most of the nations are using old Soviet era systems, the modernization of systems is also expected to increase the procurement of C4ISR.

Growing Need for Integrated C4ISR Systems

Integrated C4ISR will allow the military to own the architecture, system, and data, which reduces vendor lock-in and helps eliminate inefficiencies. In addition, the ability to create a modular architecture (with open, interoperable, and well-defined interfaces to plug in new technologies when they become available) fosters innovation and reuse across the enterprise. To achieve this, government and military organizations will shift away from proprietary, closed, contractor-owned C4ISR systems to an enterprise architecture that is standard, open, and government-owned to ensure system interoperability and data integration. This approach calls for the government to develop enterprise blueprints with detailed designs for intersystem interfaces and specifications. In addition, as part of their procurement packages, contractors will be required to deliver individual systems that integrate into the overall enterprise environment. Open architectures can reduce vendor lock-in and agile incremental delivery of modular systems with integrated capabilities can enable rapid insertion of new technologies, and built-in cybersecurity that infuses solutions with organic, unified, and multi-layered defense can strengthen cybersecurity.
