Naval Combat Systems Market Report by Systems (Weapon Systems, C4ISR Systems, Electronic Warfare, and Signal Communication Intelligence), and by Geography- Forecast to 2030

ID: MRFR/A&D/0895-HCR | 120 Pages | Author: Sejal Akre| July 2024

Global Naval Combat Systems Market Overview

Naval Combat Systems Market Size is expected to reach USD 38.95 Billion, registering a CAGR of 2.68% By 2024-2030.

Naval Combat Systems Market is driven by an excellent degree of demand for new naval systems as a result of the envisioned and ongoing fleet modernization programs of the global armed forces and other military blocks. However, the inherent capital-intensive nature of the industry and its subsidiaries due to the high associated cost of research and development and the recent outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic induced by the disruption in the global supply chain are some of the factors that are likely to hinder the growth of the market in focus during the forecast period that will be ending in 2030.

COVID Analysis

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in several supply chain constraints on the naval combat systems market scale which has escalated the cost of mergers and acquisition for several naval programs, as a part of the global market premises. With the shipyard workers being exposed to the impact of the pandemic followed by the COVID-19 infection, the overall attendance had declined by 50% during the peak of the pandemic, which further, resulted in the extension of deadlines for the completion of several shipbuilding programs in the global market premises. Besides this, the marine systems are prone to uncertain issues like breakdowns due to the extreme complexity of the integrated systems that might be resulting in unplanned work for the shipyards.

On this note, the electrical failure onboard of the CVN 75 resulted in an extension of extra three months of repairs to the ship’s availability schedule that have further, resulted in the subsequent delay in the repair schedule of USS Abraham Lincoln. For example, the US Navy’s shipyards were able to complete only 38 out of the total 51 maintenance orders for both the aircraft carriers and submarines during the historic forecast period of 2015-2019. Also, as per the stats that have been circulated after the August 2020 report of the US Government Accountability Office (GAO), the effects and trends that have been introduced by the COVID-19 are expected to exacerbate the carrier and submarine maintenance delays that are already in plague the US Navy shipyards during the forecast period that will be ending in 2030. The naval combat systems market revenue is likely to rise during the ongoing period.
