As a result, industry participants are focusing on incorporation of 5G capabilities. For instance, Lockheed Martin and Intel have demonstrated 5G capabilities for its use in military aircraft.

Major findings during the study of the Military Aircraft Communication Avionics Market:

  • Combat aircraft primarily destroy enemy equipment using their aircraft ordnance. A wide array of combat aircraft, such as fighters, bombers, and electronic warfare, are used in military aviation sector. It has been observed that, recently, military aviation is the most powerful and strategic weapon used as air dominance is a must. Thus, avionics advancement in combat aircraft is increasing regularly creating its dominance in the market.
  • OEM sales dominate the market in terms of revenue model. This can be attributed to the fact that they have complete control in designing, manufacturing, and operating, through which OEMs can paint a complete picture of the asset and use this to analyze performance. Hence, revenue generated by OEMs is the highest.
  • SATCOM solution is dominating the military aircraft communication avionics market owing to the increasing numbers of connected aircraft. SATCOM allows aircraft to communicate via satellite with air traffic control. It is already delivering benefits in terms of flight regularity and efficiency. However, in the near future, SATCOM will allow airlines to optimize flight operations, fleet management, lessen turnaround time, and increase efficiency.
  • North America shows the highest market share in military aircraft communication avionics due to the U.S. dominance in the defense sector. The U.S. possesses the largest aerospace, industrial complex. For instance, USAF has already entered the age of sixth-generation combat aircraft with the B-21 Raider.
  • Increasing adaption of technological advancement in the defense sector is driving the military aircraft communication avionics Industry.
  • However, the shortage of electronics chips amid the COVID-19 pandemic has surged complexities in the semiconductor production process, which has led to significant lack of chip supply against its demand from various sectors.
  • Major industry players are investing heavily in R&D activities to achieve success from the latest technologies. For instance, Raytheon Technologies has successfully demonstrated solutions to connect defense networks and simplify U.S. Army command and control systems during the Army's Project Convergence exercise. FlexLink is an open-system radio technology developed by the company's Collins Aerospace business that's designed to connect multiple air and ground platforms.

What is the COVID-19 Impact on Military Aircraft Communication Avionics Market?

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has adversely affected the military aircraft communication avionics market owing to the strong disruption. This has further hampered the availability of chips used in avionics. Owing to the rise in the cases of COVID-19, the defense industry witnessed a significant decline in the supply of military aircraft and other military gadgets and weapons.

Additionally, several deliveries of combat vehicles were delayed, which hampered the market. For instance, BAE Systems signed a contract worth USD 15 Billion with the US Army to deliver 2,936 combat vehicles. Out of these, an initial set of three was expected to be delivered in March 2020, but due to COVID-19, the delivery was delayed by five months.
