Global Electronic Warfare Market is expected to reach USD 18,333.4 Million by 2027 registering 4.03% CAGR during the study period.
Electronic warfare is a military action involving the use of electromagnetic energy to determine, reduce, or prevent the hostile use of the electromagnetic spectrum by the enemy. It includes various products such as jammers, decoy, countermeasure systems, directed weapons, and antennas. The primary applications of electronic warfare include attack, defense, surveillance, and collision avoidance, mainly in the military sector.
Global Electronic Warfare Market is growing rapidly due to increasing transnational disputes & wars, the emergence of cognitive electronic warfare technology, and the increasing use of integrated electronic warfare systems. However, the preference of developing countries to procure conventional warfare systems rather than electronic warfare systems and vulnerability to cyberattacks are some factors that are expected to hamper the growth of the global market during the forecast period.
Moreover, countries around the world are focusing on enhancing counter-terrorism measures to protect lives and ensure safety. Hence, electronic warfare systems are vital in enhancing situational awareness and for defending and attacking purposes. Electronic warfare systems offer flexibility and increase the capability of defense organizations to defeat terrorist or enemy attacks successfully. Thus, the demand for EW systems and solutions has been increasing over the last few years.

Global Electronic Warfare Market Segmentation
The Electronic Attack Segment is Expected to Grow at the Highest CAGR During the Forecast Period: MRFR
Electronic attack (EA) is the key component of electronic warfare. It includes a set of methods and technologies, which use electromagnetic energy or anti-radiation weapons to attack facilities, personnel, or equipment. Generally, EA is used to impact an adversary’s use of the electromagnetic spectrum (EMS). In the case of EMS energy, this action is generally referred to as "jamming" and can be performed on communication or radar systems. In the case of anti-radiation weapons, this often includes missiles or bombs, which can home in on a specific signal (radio or radar) and follow the path directly, thus destroying the system broadcasting. For instance, an anti-radiation missile such as AARGM will follow an enemy’s radar signal back to the transmitter, destroying the enemy’s ability to use radar for anti-aircraft operations. Rapid technological advancements in electronic attack systems are driving the growth of this segment. Furthermore, key players are focused on winning contracts with major countries to expand their business. For instance, in October 2020, Northrop Grumman announced the company had secured a USD 1.16 billion contract to provide EA capability improvements for the AN/SLQ-32(V) electronic warfare system for installation aboard the US Navy for aircraft carriers and amphibious assault ships. Thus, increasing collaborative deals are driving the growth of the EA segment. It is expected to exhibit a 4.40% CAGR during the forecast period.
Electronic Warfare Market has been segmented, by region, into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East & Africa, and Latin America.
Global Electronic Warfare Market Share, By Region, 2019 (%)
North America accounted for the largest market share in 2019. It is expected to be the largest market for electronic warfare during the forecast period. Asia-Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing market for electronic warfare technologies during the review period due to increasing product demand from military forces and homeland security agencies. There have been numerous territorial disputes along the India-Pakistan and India-China borders, as well as in the Indian Ocean, the Himalayas, and the South China Sea. This has led the militaries of these countries and neighboring countries to adopt electronic warfare to counter the rise in cross-border activities. Manufacturers are also focused on developing electronic warfare with advanced technologies to boost combat capabilities. The electronic warfare market in Asia-Pacific is expected to register a CAGR of 5.16% during the forecast period.
The Key Players in the Global Electronic Warfare Market are BAE Systems (UK), General Dynamics Corporation (US), Lockheed Martin Corporation (US), Raytheon Technologies Corporation (US), Saab AB (Sweden), Northrop Grumman Corporation (US), Thales Group (France), Boeing (US), Leonardo SpA (Italy), and HENSOLDT (Germany).
