VPX SBC Market Overview:


The global VPX SBC Market was valued at USD 185.15 million in 2021 and is expected to grow with a CAGR rate of 13.5% during the forecast period.


A Single-Board Computer (SBC) is a complete, functioning computer in which the memory, input/output functions, microprocessor, and other features are all built on a single circuit board, with RAM built in at a pre-determined amount and with no expansion slots for peripherals. VPX, also called VITA 46, refers to a set of standards for connecting components of a computer, mainly used by defense contractors. VPX is primarily associated with providing high-performance solutions to the defense market, the number of markets that can leverage its capabilities is much broader. That includes commercial, industrial, transportation, energy exploration, and many other commercial industries that need rugged reliability allied with leading-edge performance.


The global VPX SBC market is driven by an increase in the adoption of electronic warfare systems and technological advancements in military embedded systems. However, complexities in embedded product development is expected to act as a major restraint factor for the market. Development of electronic warfare systems with enhanced capabilities is expected to open lucrative opportunities for the market during the projected period.


COVID-19 Impact vs  Opportunities for Global VPX SBC Market:


COVID-19 has severely impacted and disrupted supply chain hubs across the globe. China, one of the major manufacturing hubs, has registered a decline of ~14% in the production capacity and a decline of ~40% in global electronic component shipments. COVID-19 has affected the Global Value Chain hub, wherein China played an important role in providing raw materials, assembly of products, and final dispatch. The significant decline in the export includes textile raw materials, garments and clothing accessories, mechanical and electrical products, automatic data processing systems, central processing units, electrical equipment, and automobiles. In this, the automatic data processing system has been hit worse, impacting approximately 30%.


The demand for electronic warfare systems is driven owing to their various applications. There are multiple technological developments in the electronic warfare system, such as Artificial Intelligence, Unmanned Platform Development and Miniaturization of VPX SBC.


Market Dynamics:


Drivers:


The electronic warfare systems perform the military or intelligence operations that make use of the electromagnetic spectrum to detect and communicate with the radar, radio, or infrared signals and further block enemy attacks. The increasing conflicts among the countries have pushed the demand for these systems, thereby propelling the VPX SBC market.


Opportunities:


There have been growing developments by the US Air Force researchers to build a new type of artificial intelligence and machine learning to allow attack aircraft to defeat and engage next-generation enemy IADS (integrated air-defense systems). In September 2021, the US Air Force Research Laboratory at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, released a pre-solicitation to apply machine learning and AI to future cognitive electronic warfare systems and help aircraft succeed in air defenses that rely on missiles, multispectral sensors, and other air-defense assets. Artificial Intelligence and machine learning can help the military sector analyze and generate an increasing amount of mission data in real time and create opportunities for adopting autonomous electronic warfare.


Restraint:


The complexities in embedded product development are anticipated to hamper the global VPX SBC market at a lower rate towards the end of the forecast period.
