The global military aircraft avionics market grew at a CAGR of around 4% during 2015-2020. Military aircraft avionics rely on sophisticated electronics systems and equipment to perform a wide range of combat and non-combat functions. They include displays, flight control, activity monitors, weapon trackers, navigation systems, computing architectures, countermeasure dispensers, human-machine interface (HMI), secure tactical communications, and radio, electro-optic and infrared (IR) threat sensors. Nowadays, different avionics components are generally combined to help accomplish missions, make discoveries, track and report performance measures, operate within safety parameters and improve the overall aircraft performance.

Global Military Aircraft Avionics Market Trends and Drivers:

Rising geographical conflicts represent one of the key factors escalating the demand for modern military aircraft avionics for combat applications. The market growth is also supported by increasing investments in the defense and military sector for upgrading existing aircraft with advanced avionics systems to improve safety and integrity requirements. The growing utilization of military aircraft for other purposes, such as humanitarian aid, troop transportation, rescue operations during natural disasters and supplying logistics to forward bases, is also contributing to the market growth. Apart from this, various manufacturers are developing physical unclonable function (PUF) based nano-electromechanical switches (NEMs) that can withstand high temperatures, microwaves and high-dose radiation, and self-destruct in the case of data breaches, thereby providing an additional layer of cybersecurity. They are also focusing on improving the air armament lethality of military aircraft and providing a fast, secure, reliable, scalable and real-time connectivity framework. This, in turn, is anticipated to impact the market positively in the coming years. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global military aircraft avionics market to exhibit moderate growth during the next five years.
