Communication Intelligence Market Research, 2031

The global communication intelligence market size was valued at $7.1 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $12.9 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 6.1% from 2022 to 2031. Communication Intelligence (COMINT) system is a wireless communication technology that is utilized on battlefields for radio monitoring, finding radio locations, and intercepting enemy radar signals. COMINT uses electromagnetic signals to send data from point A to point B. It is used to decode military radio traffic, fax transmissions, electromagnetic signals and COMINT converts it into actionable information such as images, sound, or data that can be analyzed easily. It supports cutting-edge networking technologies and satellite communications that are widely used by defense forces around the world. It can be utilized from any mode such as airborne, ground, and naval levels.

Communication Intelligence Market

Communication intelligence hold great potential in defense and aerospace industry. Intelligence is information that assists an organization or individual in making decisions that provide them with a strategic advantage. The adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) in electronic warfare and machine learning majorly in defense departments around the world is expected to increase demand for COMINT and drive the global market. AI in COMINT includes technologies such as machine learning and natural language processing, allows machines to sense, comprehend, act, and learn to augment human capabilities, with the help of these the defense personals can take the necessary actions on the basis of the data acquired. All these aspects are estimated to drive the market growth and demand during the analysis period.

A military communication satellite system costs around USD 1 billion to develop and USD 90 million to launch, as a result, the expensive cost of infrastructure, installation, and data links restricts the growth of communication intelligence market. High cost associated with the deployment of COMINT systems is anticipated to decrease the demand for this market, which is anticipated to hamper the global market growth, during the forecast period.

COMINT solutions have been growing their application in a multiple industry, including radio frequency (RF), jamming, spectrum mapping, eavesdropping, and cyber-surveillance. It is widely used in cyber warfare. Cyber warfare involves the use of cyber-attacks against an enemy state in order to cause comparable harm to actual warfare. The emergence of solutions in defense forces helps to manage the situation and have the extensive collaborative mission planning, These factors is expected to boost the communication intelligence market growth in the coming years.

The industry players are investing in the R&D to develop smart and unique strategies to sustain their growth in the market. These strategies include product launches, mergers & acquisitions, collaborations, partnerships, and refurbishing of existing technology. In, March 2022, Scryb launched its Cybeats cybersecurity products commercially at the end of 2021 and the Company continues to be focused on bolstering its dedicated commercial teams, customer success and technical sales personnel to support communication intelligence market demand.

These factor is expected to boost the growth of the market in the coming years. The key players profiled in this report include Lockheed Martin Corporation, Raytheon Company, General Dynamics Corporation, Northrop Grumman Corporation, Thales Group, L3Harris Technologies, Inc., BAE Systems, Elbit Systems Ltd., Saab AB, TCI International, Inc., and HENSOLDT.

The global communication intelligence market is segmented on the basis of mobility, platform, and region. By mobility, the market is sub-segmented into fixed and man-portable. By platform industry, the market is classified into airborne, ground, naval, and others. By region, the market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

The communication intelligence market is segmented into Mobility and Platform.

Communication Intelligence Market by Mobility

By mobility, the fixed mobility sub-segment dominated the market in 2021. Mobility is recognized as an important component of the modern battlefield, because of the ability to move weapon systems or combat units from one place to another by intercepting the enemy’s communication systems which makes a huge difference between success and defeat. The above mentioned are predicted to be the major factors affecting the communication Intelligence market demand during the forecast period.

Communication Intelligence Market by Platform

By platform, the ground sub-segment dominated the global communication Intelligence market share in 2021. The growth of this sub-segment can be attributed to the use of communication intelligence in defense sector. Ground platform makes it easier and more productive for defense and intelligence planners to remain focused and plan with respect to the necessary capabilities that are needed on the field. It helps in planning the attacks and deploy the troops accordingly. Defense sector that relies on conventional radio in the battlefield have long wanted to modernize communications equipment in defense sector. Communication intelligence in the defense sector which helps to detect, locate, and the intentions of the enemy in various platforms are bound to create a scope for communication intelligence market growth for these sub-segments during the forecast period.

Communication Intelligence Market by Region

By region, Asia-Pacific dominated the global market in 2021 and is projected to remain the fastest-growing sub-segment during the forecast period. The increase in military expenditure in this region for upgradation and acquisition of communication intelligence for modern defense equipment is expected to grow communication intelligence market share in the Asia-Pacific region. According to "Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI)" an independent international organization that researches into conflict and weapons of the countries stated that the countries such as India, China, South Korea, Japan, and Australia have increased their military expenditure in 2021. Such factors are predicted to promote the growth of the market in Asia-Pacific region.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Global Communication Intelligence Industry

  • The novel coronavirus emerged in 2019 and significantly impacted people across the world socially, economically, and politically. The coronavirus pandemic may have a short to medium term impact on military equipment manufacturers in the defence sector.
  • China has prioritized "digitization" of its national defense and civilian infrastructure. However, China being the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic, its export was affected, leading to a decline in demand of communication Intelligence industry.
  • The demand for military equipment over couple of years is unlikely to be affected because funding for the defense projects were set aside before the pandemic which are vital to national defense.
