Key growth opportunities and competitive landscape

DUBLIN, Dec 3 2021 / PRNewswire / – The “Growth Opportunities for Digitization in the Global Defense Market” report has been added to offer.

Like the commercial sector, COVID-19 has accelerated digitization in the military field, as evidenced by the many military organizations that are currently considering and adopting digital technologies exponentially. This is compounded by the growing geopolitical concerns of state and non-state actors, which can only be thwarted by the strategic advantage that digitization offers in and out of the combat zone.

Artificial intelligence (AI), cloud computing and autonomous technologies (SWARM, unmanned team) are expected to revolutionize military operations during the forecast period. The main areas of application will be to reduce the Observe, Orient, Decide, Act loop, in addition to cybersecurity applications and underwater and unmanned surface vehicles.

The different digitization technologies are interdependent and do not work in silos. For example, data collection from interconnected devices (IoT) is processed by cloud computing to provide a common operating picture. AI demonstrates the ability to further analyze this for target identification and assignment. Harnessing the collective power of these technologies is key to the strategic advantages of the future.

In the past, internal challenges have hampered the adoption of digitization, compounded by issues of security and data sharing as well as the lack of a framework, concept of operations and approach. centered on the platform. While the internal challenges are unlikely to disappear overnight, stakeholders have taken positive steps to facilitate the adoption process. Initiatives include joint operations networks, moving data silos to a centralized model, and changing software service procurement procedures to facilitate greater ease. Military stakeholders and defense equipment manufacturers collaborate extensively with commercial companies, which are at the forefront of the digital transformation of defense.

United States and China are the leaders in the adoption of defense technologies, followed by Europe. In the future, United States and China will accelerate adoption to achieve technological supremacy. Other defense forces, notably the UK, France, Japan, Israel, Australia, and South Korea, will also increase adoption rates. Countries in South Asia, South East Asia, and the Middle East will see more widespread adoption of autonomous technologies followed by cloud and AI over the next 5 years.

The force multiplier effect and cost efficiency that digitization brings in combat operations will inevitably increase adoption in various programs and countries. Defense OEMs need to be aware of the upward trend and expand their product offering either through internal development or through partnerships with appropriate companies.
