Aircraft survivability equipment includes various types of systems and fittings that increase an aircraft’s survivability and reduce its vulnerability to all kinds of external threats. Simply put, the role of aircraft survivability equipment is to minimize the vulnerability of aircraft to all possible threats. This involves physical equipment meant to reduce damage from traditional missiles and other projectiles as well as electronic equipment designed to prevent the aircraft from falling prey to electronic attacks. Aircraft survivability equipment performs a crucial role in air defense and is thus allotted a major part of air force expenditure. The growing importance of air combat in modern warfare is likely to drive the global aircraft survivability equipment market at a steady growth rate over the 2018-2023 forecast period.
The global aircraft survivability equipment market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.20% over the 2018-2023 forecast period, rising from a valuation of USD 3,620 million in 2017 to USD 4,910 million in 2023.
The major drivers for the global aircraft survivability equipment market include the rising demand to replace traditional equipment and systems with advanced versions, and the rising prevalence of asymmetric warfare. Militaries around the world are investing heavily in technological upgradation to provide their units with the most advanced equipment, resulting in increasing demand from the aircraft survivability equipment market. The rise in asymmetric warfare is likely to elevate the importance of aircraft to modern military forces, forcing them to invest in aircraft survivability equipment. Increasing troubles related to insurgency and guerilla warfare around the world are thus likely to drive the global aircraft survivability equipment market over the 2018-2023 forecast period. Surface to air missiles are a vital resource for insurgents looking to counter air attacks. As a result, countries are likely to invest in protection against the same over the coming years, resulting in steady growth of the aircraft survivability equipment market over the forecast period.
On the other hand, the high cost of advanced aircraft survivability equipment and the high cost of replacing the existing systems in aircraft fleets en masse is likely to hurt the prospects of the aircraft survivability equipment market in the short term. While advanced countries such as the U.S. have committed significant expenses towards large-scale modernization of their armed forces, not all countries can afford to follow suit and apply the latest aircraft survivability equipment. This has led to a disparity among the major regions as to their role in the global aircraft survivability equipment market. However, demand from the defense sector is likely to remain the major driver for the global aircraft survivability equipment market over the forecast period.
