Market Scenario


Avionics systems include multiple electronic systems fitted on-board military aircraft to perform specific functions. The avionics systems are integrated into the cockpit and encompasses equipment such as communication & navigation. Avionics systems are a critical component in an aircraft that enables the aircraft to navigate, communicate, and monitor the aircraft functions. Furthermore, these components play a vital role during situations of war during which the aircraft operator has to maintain a high level of situational awareness. Currently, military avionics systems are technologically advanced and comprise less hardware and more software, which also benefits in terms of maintenance needs. The global military aircraft avionics systems market is driven by an increase in aircraft modernization programs being adopted by militaries across the globe and increased retrofit of existing aircraft is further impacting market growth. The market is also expected to gain significant traction during the forecast period due to the increase in investments towards militaries across the world is expected to encourage market growth during the forecast period. Updates on technical standards in the aviation industry are also expected to encourage market growth. For instance, the Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE) technical standards enable militaries to deploy software-based avionics systems which would speed up deliveries and reduce the cost of military avionics systems significantly. Thus, employing software-based systems in military avionics is a potential opportunity that enables key market players to develop avionics products.


Segmentation of the Global Military Aircraft Avionics Market


On the basis of type, the market has been segmented into general aircraft avionics and mission-specific avionics. The general avionics segment has been further segmented into flight instruments, automatic flight control systems, warning, and recording systems, and power plant & system monitoring instruments. The mission-specific avionics segment is further segmented into military communication systems, radar systems, electronic support measures, electro-optic systems, and sonar systems. The general avionics segment was the largest in 2018, whereas mission-specific avionics is expected to be the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period. Within, general avionics segment, automatic flight control system was the largest segment in 2018, and power plant & system monitoring instruments is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Flight management systems are a crucial component of military aircraft avionics. These systems are a specialized computer system, which helps in automating several in-flight tasks, thereby reducing the workload of the pilots. Based on the region, the market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and Latin America. North America was the largest segment in 2018. Presence of key players such as Rockwell Collins, Aspen Avionics, and L-3 Avionics Systems is expected to encourage the regional market growth. However, Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Increase in military spending by countries such as China is expected to drive regional growth during the forecast period.
