C4ISR Market: Key Drivers, Trends, and Challenges

Based on our research output, there has been a negative impact on the market growth during and post COVID-19 era. The growing acceptance of crew systems is notably driving the C4ISR market growth, although factors such as barriers to adopting new technology and equipment may impede market growth. Our research analysts have studied the historical data and deduced the key market drivers and the COVID-19 pandemic impact on the C4ISR industry. The holistic analysis of the drivers will help in deducing end goals and refining marketing strategies to gain a competitive edge.

Key C4ISR Market Driver

One of the key factors driving the C4ISR market growth is the growing acceptance of CREW systems. The CREW (counter radio-controlled improvised explosive device electronic warfare) systems form a major part of EW and are used to detonate remote-controlled improvised explosive devices (RCIEDs). Vendors offering such systems also provide specific equipment, training, and life support services to the end-users. The use of such systems can significantly decrease the casualties in RCIED attacks. Due to this, the adoption of such systems is increasing among military and law enforcement personnel across the world. CREW systems are made of several components that protect a soldier from the IED threat. The successful elimination of a threat is achieved due to strategic tactics, advanced technology, and knowledge about possible military locations. One of the highly deployed CREW systems is the AN/ULQ-35 Counter RCIED CREW Duke system. It is a vehicle-mounted device capable of neutralizing RCIEDs, thus providing the military with a tactical advantage. It features superior protection performance, user-friendly operation, low power consumption, is MIL-STD-810F compliant, and can be used in various temperature conditions.

Key C4ISR Market Trend

Increasing integration of Android and iOS-based devices are the major trend influencing the C4ISR market growth. Android and iOS have become the desired operating systems (OS) for the militaries' dismounted situational awareness requirements. The use of such technology has been increasingly gaining acceptance among military organizations for ruggedized handheld computers and other devices. Such devices are predominantly employed in military mobilization network integration evaluation (NIE) activities and the software engineering directorate (SED) mobile applications. In the combat zone, a comprehensive array of digital data and tactical radio technology is provided to combatants, which ensures secure communication between a country's military branch and its government. The Android or iOS-based devices ensure the effective use of video, text messaging, and mapping technology, as well as help squadrons determine the locations of their own troops and opponents. For instance, the US Army has been extensively using Android-based devices in combat operations. However, in July 2016, the Special Operations Command of the US Army announced its plan to switch to iOS-based smartphones, namely iPhone 6, to address the demand of changing warfare environments.

Key C4ISR Market Challenge

Barriers to adopting new technology and equipment is one of the key challenges hindering the C4ISR market growth. Vendors in this market are required to adhere to the stringent regulatory norms of different countries. There are many private companies and third-party technology providers that work with government agencies and departments of defense in various countries. Therefore, it has become obligatory for manufacturers to comply with stringent regulations at the federal, state, and local levels. In addition, military forces are facing difficulties in the adoption of new technologies as they become obsolete within a short span of time. The challenges that come with the introduction of new technologies are the high cost, technology risk driven by certification requirements, and superior technical expertise. Furthermore, the difficulties in interoperability between C4ISR systems remain yet another challenge, as it becomes difficult to collate information from multiple sources. This is very important for defense organizations as interoperability between C4ISR platforms necessitates an uninterrupted flow of information in large quantities between air, land, and naval forces. Therefore, the adoption of new technology becomes challenging for both vendors and operators.

This C4ISR market analysis report also provides detailed information on other upcoming trends and challenges that will have a far-reaching effect on the market growth. The actionable insights on the trends and challenges will help companies evaluate and develop growth strategies for 2021-2025.

COVID Impact and Recovery Analysis

In 2020, the outbreak of COVID-19 affected the C4ISR market in North America. Many industries, such as software, automotive, and heavy industries, partially shut down their operations due to the pandemic in 2020. This led to the downfall of the economy and hindered trade in North America. Various countries reduced the budget on the defense sector so that funds could be diverted to COVID-19 relief. The temporary shutdown of the industrial manufacturing halted their operations, which reduced the manufacturing, installation, and use of C4ISR and limited the growth of the regional C4ISR market in 2020 and early 2021. However, the partial resumption of industrial activities, with social distancing norms in place and the use of a limited workforce, is expected to stabilize the growth of the regional market during the latter half of the forecast period.
