The military aircraft collision avoidance systems market is expected to register a CAGR of over 4% during the forecast period (2022 - 2027).

The COVID-19 pandemic had a minor impact on the market. Although the production of military aircraft was slowed down for a brief period in 2020, the increase in military expenditure from all the countries has driven the demand for new aircraft and has consequently driven the demand for military aircraft collision avoidance systems.

The growing emphasis on military aircraft safety has been one of the prime growth drivers for the market studied. Since most military aircraft operate in hazardous conditions, the chances of mid-air collisions and fatal accidents are very high. This has compelled military forces to adopt sophisticated airborne collision avoidance systems, as they help to improve the operational safety of aircraft and the pilots or troops.

Military forces across the world are using UAVs for long-range missions. Since the implementation of collision avoidance systems is mandatory in UAVs, an increase in the adoption of UAVs may increase the demand for these systems, as they help to improve operational safety and enhance the lifetime of UAVs.

Key Market Trends

The Unmanned Aircraft Segment is Expected to Register the Highest Growth Rate During the Forecast Period

Currently, the manned aircraft segment has a higher market share than the unmanned aircraft segment, as the procurement of new manned aircraft is projected to be more during the forecast period. Additionally, militaries, like the United States, are upgrading their aircraft avionics to new generation ones, which includes incorporating new collision avoidance systems in the aircraft. However, during the forecast period, the unmanned aircraft segment is projected to register a high CAGR, owing to the growing UAV applications in the military and the rate at which the procurements of UAVs are growing among the militaries. The increasing usage of unmanned aircraft like UAVs and other automated drones has been driving the demand for aircraft collision avoidance systems. For instance, in August 2021, Sagetech Avionics of the United States successfully demonstrated the use of Detect and Avoid (DAA) system that functions based on ACASS algorithms to provide collision avoidance for unmanned aircraft systems (UAS). Major companies manufacturing these systems have been offering new products about collision avoidance systems. General Electric, together with its partners, is working on drone flights integrating the next-generation airborne collision avoidance system (ACAS X), which is being developed jointly by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Several such developments are expected to drive the unmanned aircraft segment of the market by significant margins.

The Asia Pacific Region is Expected to Witness Highest Growth Rate During the Forecast Period

The Asia Pacific region is expected to witness the highest growth rate during the forecast period, owing to the presence of countries like China and India that spend significantly on military aircraft procurement. For instance, in 2021, China has allocated an estimated total of USD 293 billion on military expenditure, and India spent a total of USD 76.6 Billion on its military in 2021. Furthermore, these countries have been developing new technologies to prevent aircraft collisions. For instance, in 2020, India's Aeronautical Development Agency announced that it is working on the development of an Automatic Ground Collision Avoidance System for its Tejas Mk2 fighter jets. This system will help the pilot regain control of the aircraft in case of any emergency. Furthermore, several new developments and innovations for safety systems have been driving the implementation of collision avoidance systems on board aircraft. In May 2022, China developed a ground collision avoidance and air collision avoidance system that enables unmanned military drones to help in surveillance and reconnaissance. This technology is expected to gradually be employed in the existing fleet of China for better military aviation safety. Such developments are expected to drive the demand for collision avoidance systems across the Asia Pacific region.

Competitive Landscape

The military aircraft collision avoidance systems market is consolidated, with few players controlling the majority of the market. Honeywell International Inc., L3Harris Technologies, Inc., Collins Aerospace (Raytheon Technologies Corporation), Leonardo SpA, and Thales Group are some of the prominent players in the military collision avoidance systems market. As flight safety is one of the areas where aircraft OEMs spend more on reliability, irrespective of the pricing, companies are trying to manufacture advanced collision avoidance systems with enhanced capabilities to ensure more safety for the pilots and troops. Players are also working along with the aviation authorities and government bodies as well as the military end-users to develop the next-generation collision avoidance systems. Increased focus on R&D and the entry into strategic partnerships are expected to help the players in the long run.
