The global Air Defense Systems Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 14.9 Million In 2022 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 13.70% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Air defense systems provide protection against threats from the air such as aircraft, helicopters, drones, and incoming missiles/ rockets. They utilize missiles, guns, and radars for threat detection and interception. They offer quick reaction time and high hit accuracy, making them an essential part of any country’s defense mechanism.
Market key trends:
One of the key trends driving growth in the air defense systems market is the growing geopolitical tensions and rising defense budgets across countries. As territorial conflicts and instances of cross-border terrorism increase, nations are investing heavily in strengthening their air defense capabilities. Furthermore, technological advancements are enabling the development of more sophisticated air defense missiles and interceptor systems with advanced radar and sensor capabilities. This is increasing their demand as countries look for solutions to tackle emerging aerial threats.
The global Air Defense Systems Market is segmented by product type, platform, and range. By product type, the surface-to-air missile (SAM) systems segment dominates the market. SAM systems provide long-range, medium-range, and short-range air defense capabilities. They have the ability to engage several targets simultaneously over long distances, making them suitable for defending strategic locations.
The global Air Defense Systems market is expected to witness high growth, exhibiting CAGR of 13.70% over the forecast period from 2023 to 2030, due to increasing geopolitical tensions globally.
The US dominates the market currently with a market share of over 30% in 2022. However, the Asia Pacific region is expected to grow at the fastest pace during the forecast period owing to rising defense budgets of major economies like China and India.
