The military sensors cybersecurity solutions are advanced components/devices that are used for monitor data traffic, identifies and detects threats, analyses stealthy characteristic signs of malware, etc., and alert the system in case of any attack. These systems aid defense sector in various applications such as combat operations, target recognition, electronic warfare, etc.
Rising cyber attacks on military and government websites have compelled the governments of developed and developing countries to spend high on strengthening military cyber security. The Government authorities through various modernizing projects are focused on deploying advanced systems for various applications such as combat operations, target recognition, electronic warfare, communication & navigation, etc. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in the U.S. has requested US$ 2.6 Bn as cyber security budget for the financial year 2021. This sum would comprise 13.87% of the total requested budget among the CFO act government agencies. India military spending/defense budget for 2019 was US$ 71.12 Bn, a 7.35% increase from 2018. In 2019, the government of India finalized a road map to spend US$130 Bn to modernize the Armed Forces and bolster capabilities to effectively counter the challenges from its neighboring countries like Pakistan and China. Private players are investing high for the development of advanced products; their approach towards collaborative work for R&D activities are factors expected to impact the growth of the military sensors cybersecurity solutions market.
In 2019, Ball Aerospace, a manufacturer of spacecraft, components, and instruments for national defense, civil space, and commercial space applications collaborated with Telesat with the focus to develop fully electronically-steered flat panel antenna. This is expected to help the company to enhance the business strength.
In 2018 BAE Systems, arms, security, and aerospace company received a contract from the US government worth US$ 97 Mn for the supply of new night vision goggles and thermal weapon sights.
Factors such as high cost of R&D activities, lack of funding and lack of accuracy and operational complexities are expected to hamper the growth of global military sensors cybersecurity solutions market. In addition, complexities in manufacturing of sensors and cyber security risk are factors expected to challenge the growth of target market. However, increasing demand for advanced new generation advanced security and high investment for R&D activities are factors expected to create new opportunities for players operating in the military sensors cybersecurity solutions market over the forecast period. In addition, increasing partnership and agreements in order to enhance the business strength is expected to support the revenue transaction of the target market.
