Military Communications Market Insights

Military Communications Market size was valued at USD 33.1 billion in 2019 and is poised to grow from USD 35.12 billion in 2023 to USD 54.11 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 6.37% in the forecast period (2024-2031).

Military communication can be described as the transmission of information from reconnaissance and other units in contact with the enemy, as well as a means for commanders to demonstrate command orders and instructions to their subordinates. It incorporates all approaches to transmitting messages, orders, and reports in the field and at sea, and between headquarters and distant infrastructure or ships. It includes all aspects of armed forces' information and data communication for efficient operation, military command, and control. To transmit information across people and regions, it usually depends on a vast and complex communication network of equipment and protocols. Various governments are increasingly focusing on advanced communication innovations to enhance operational efficiency and digital communication capabilities. The use of smart devices and sensors in the defence sector is likely to generate revenue and increase the growth of the military communications market.

Some of the major factors driving the growth of the military communications market also include replacement of overaged technology with more advanced equipment, the introduction of digital communications, and an increase in defence expenditures in developing countries such as China, India, and South Korea. Moreover, increased government investments in the defensive system sector all over the world, as well as an emphasis on providing network-centric and data-centric communications, drive market growth.

US Military Communications Market is poised to grow at a sustainable CAGR for the next forecast year.

Military Communications Market Dynamics

Military Communications Market Driver

  • The primary requirement of the defence sector is the privacy and security of military communications. The increasing volume of IP-based data, such as situational awareness video and remote sensor data transmitted over standard interfaces, necessitates advanced data network security. Moreover, as cyber resources on the ground, air, and space are vulnerable to a variety of threats, securing military satellites against cyberattacks has become highly significant.
  • The US Air Force introduced military-code or M-Code, an advanced GPS signal, in October 2017 to improve anti-jamming and spoofing protection and provide secure access to military GPS signals. The US Air Force awarded Lockheed Martin a USD 45.5 million contract to provide M-code early-use capability to GPS satellites. In the same year, the US Army planned to purchase backpack-sized radios that can operate on the Navy's Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) waveform to provide secure voice and data services for secure satellite communications.

Military Communications Market Restraint

  • The interoperability and collaboration of communications between different defense agencies or departments is a critical issue. Interoperability includes the capacity of forces from different countries to work effectively and in unison. Spectrum allocation, rapidly changing technologies, changing nature of operations, and inadequate funding all contribute to military communications interoperability issues. Using similar communication equipment around the world could be a solution, but it is not feasible.
