Airborne Surveillance Market Outlook - 2030

Airborne surveillance is used to observe actions and behaviors in the environment and to detect & track aircraft in flight. The airborne surveillance data is collected in visual image or video format. Airborne surveillance makes observations and collets data from air and ground vehicles such as unmanned airborne surveillance vehicles (UAV), helicopter, and others. Airborne surveillance uses airborne early warning and control (AEW & C) system to find unknown objects or enemy aircraft in flight, and provides threat and target data, which helps fighters to expand their sensor range and makes it difficult to detect attacking aircraft.

Tracking the rapid airborne surveillance development of equipment, such as forward-looking Infrared (FLIR), micro-airborne surveillance vehicles (MAVS), and high-resolution images that can detect objects at long distances, is providing airborne surveillance to penetrate more in the market. The diverse application areas of airborne surveillance include defense & security, commercial, and military.

The global airborne surveillance market is segmented on the basis of type, product type, end use, and region. Based on type, the market is divided into RADAR, LIDAR, and imaging system. In terms of product type, the market is categorized into manned and unmanned. On the basis end use, the market is divided into military, defense & security, commercial, and others. Geographically, the market is analyzed across several regions such as North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Latin America, Middle East & Africa (LAMEA).

Key players operating in the global airborne surveillance industry include Airbus (France), Boeing (US), Saab (Sweden), BAE Systems (UK), Raytheon (US), Lockheed Martin (US), Leonardo (Italy), FLIR Systems (US), Northrop Grumman (US), L-3 Wescam (Canada), Leica Geosystems (Switzerland), Teledyne Technologies (US), Safran (France), Thales (France), and Israel Aerospace Industries (Israel). These companies have adopted several strategies such as product launches, partnerships, collaborations, mergers & acquisitions, and joint ventures to strengthen their foothold in the global airborne surveillance market.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has severely affected businesses of almost all industries. While the COVID-19 pandemic crisis unfolds, regulatory bodies all over the world are in the compulsion to impose strict lockdown and travel bans. Moreover, this has drastically affected the airborne surveillance market share.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the supply chain systems were disrupted and strict instruction of governing bodies to follow social distancing norms forced the industries to work with minimal workforce, which led to the decrease in production rate of industries. Thus, all these factors negatively impact the airborne surveillance market, and contribute to the decrease in growth rate of airborne surveillance market.

However, after the COVID-19 pandemic, the diversified and innovative applications of airborne surveillance, such as military, defense & security, and commercial, will foster the growth of the airborne surveillance market.

Top Impacting Factors

The rapid development of airborne surveillance equipment, such as forward-looking infrared (FLIR), micro-airborne surveillance vehicles (MAVS), and high-resolution imaging that can detect objects at long distances, is driving market growth of airborne surveillance.

In commercial sector, increased demand for commercial drones and the availability of low-cost drones are expected to drive the market in Airborne Surveillance Market period. Boeing E-3 Sentry, developed by Boeing Company, provides weather survey, communications, command & control functions, and is used by

the U.S. Air Force, Royal Air Force, Royal Saudi Air Force, French Air Force, and NATO. Thus, this increases the demand in airborne surveillance Industry.

The overall budget issue is the most concerned issue for the global air surveillance market as manufacturing and maintenance costs are very high, costs will decrease over time, and human errors in remote controls can lead to aircraft disasters.

Surge in Usage in Military, Security, and Defense Applications

Increasing regional conflicts, border disputes, and increasing terrorist activities have brought security concerns to all countries and enabled them to obtain advanced defense systems. In the case of airborne surveillance systems, the largest share belongs to the manned system. Airborne surveillance provides covering of large surveillance area and easy to perform multiple operations, which provide manned systems with the largest market share.

However, the growth of unmanned systems is mainly due to technological development, low cost, and high performance of unmanned systems such as commercial drones Therefore, coving large area by manned system and technological development by unmanned system rise the demand for airborne surveillance in the market.

Wide-Scale Adoption of Commercial Drones

Airborne surveillance provides the use of unmanned systems for military and commercial purposes. The rise in adoption of commercial drones in commercial sector used to provide security & surveillance at interstate and intrastate level, which is expected to create Airborne Surveillance Market opportunities. Commercial drones are used by local bodies to resolve public related issues, such as to detect areas, which are lack in water supply and other public issues. Thus, the need  of commercial drones increases the demand for airborne surveillance in the market .
