The demand for interoperability between various armed forces and the increasing adoption of these systems in commercial applications is driving the market.
The land segment is expected to account for the largest market share during the forecast period
The Land Platforms segment is expected to represent the highest market share of the command and control systems market during the forecast period. Land forces command and control systems include air defense, combat management and nuclear defense. In addition to defense applications, land-based command and control systems are used for various transportation systems. Communication-based train control (CBTC) and the European train control system (ETRS) are land-based railway control and signaling systems. Air traffic management (ATM) and vessel traffic management (VTM) are other areas of transport using command and control systems. Other emerging applications of land-based commercial command and control systems include critical infrastructure and industrial applications for safety management and monitoring.
Commercial segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period
The use of command and control systems in commercial applications is expected to increase at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. These systems are used for the security management of critical infrastructure, such as financial institutions, research laboratories, power plants, and offshore oil and gas facilities. Transportation is another emerging application in which C2 systems are used for traffic management, such as vessel traffic management, air traffic management, and train signaling system. Industrial facilities include automotive and commercial facilities.
Asia-Pacific region is expected to experience growth at the highest CAGR during the forecast period
The Asia-Pacific region is expected to experience considerable growth in the coming years. Rising defense spending in countries in the Asia-Pacific region is expected to lead to strong demand. Rising conflicts between neighboring countries in the Asia-Pacific region and threats of rising terrorism are the reasons for this market. Due to geopolitical tensions in the South China Sea and border issues in several countries, the purchase of various C4ISR systems for military and homeland security applications is expected to increase in the region.
