Space platform segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
SIGINT in space or satellites is a vital resource for defense and security missions, especially while planning operations and mission deployments remotely. The satellites are designed to provide strategic threat assessments and offer an exceptional level of tactical support to decision makers and soldiers. SIGINT satellites support the warfighter, as the warfighter retrieves every minute data on a 24/7 basis, potentially every day of the year. Vendors are investing with an intention to play an even greater role in assisting defense and security operations. For instance, the CERES satellite system, the first operational space-based SIGINT system of the French Ministry of Defence, is scheduled for launch in 2020.

Asia Pacific (APAC) is expected to grow at the highest growth rate during the forecast period.
APAC is projected to witness the highest growth rate, especially in China and India, which is due to the high propensity of these countries to adapt to technological advancements. Rising insurgencies and armed conflicts in APAC is one of the factors driving the SIGINT market growth. For instance, according to, India witnessed 966 terror incidents in 2017. India was the fifth-largest country in military expenditure across the world in 2017. In addition to this, the fast-growing economies of the APAC region are improving their defense capabilities. For instance, in 2017, Japan spent USD 45.4 billion on military expenditure. Japan is investing heavily on submarine fleet purchases, which automatically increases the deployment of SIGINT systems in submarines.
