Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Military Airborne Electronic Warfare (EW) Market in 14 Key Countries" report to their offering.
This study covers 14 key countries that are looking to invest in airborne Electronic Warfare (EW) capabilities due to rising threat perceptions. Revenue is forecasted for some countries with established or published EW programs while qualitative assessment has been done for others.
Key platform procurement and upgrade programs are covered, focusing on the impact on EW opportunities available to suppliers. A major trend covered is the rising aerial threats and growing demand for enhanced control over the electromagnetic spectrum that is driving the upgrade efforts of existing EW capabilities.
- Globally, upgrade programs for Electronic Warfare (EW) systems will be taking up more EW hardware than new procurement programs, in the short and mid terms. As new procurement deliveries converge starting in 2017, forward-fit EW systems will enter service
- While prime contractors dictate the uptake of EW equipment in North America, Consortiums dictate the uptake of EW systems in Europe. NATO-driven standardization will impact EW decisions in the European region
- Overall, major new procurement programs will potentially be delayed due to budget constraints which will impose the need for upgrade of existing EW capabilities. This will result in increasing upgrade spending
