The global GPS anti jam market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.9% during the forecast period 2019–2026. is expected to reach USD 5.9 billion by 2026.
GPS anti jam technology is used to avoid the weakening, interfering and jamming of GPS signals. By the time the GPS signal reaches the earth's surface, it is weak and susceptible to interference and intentional jamming. Indeed, signals are usually covered by thermal noise and only observable with a tuned signal analyzer. GPS technology has revolutionized modern warfare.Military organizations generally rely on satellite technology for accurate timing, communications, and positioning.
The high demand for national safety and security has led to the increased usage of anti-jamming systems in weapons and missiles, which is expected to drive the growth of the GPS anti-jamming market. The use of GPS anti-jamming technology in flight control, surveillance and reconnaissance, targeting and casualty evacuation in airborne operations is expected to contribute to the dominance of military-based airborne end users.
The use of anti-jamming equipment in the commercial sector is another driving factor for the GPS anti-jamming market. Many commercial companies, Amazon for example, which are going to increasingly use drones for delivery and other tasks, are focused on anti-jamming technology to ensure the safe operation of drones.
Technical concerns related to compatibility with existing receiver and the long time frame required for commercializing new technology are some of the key restraints expected to hinder the progression of the global GPS anti-jamming systems market. Also, the use of GPS anti-jammers by criminals such as for car hijacks is a major concern about the GPS anti-jamming technology.
The global GPS anti jam market can be segmented by technique, receiver type, and application.
The market can be segmented into beam steering systems, civilian systems, and nulling systems. The growing use of satellite and GPS technologies in civilian applications drives the growth of the segment.
The GPS anti jam market can be segmented into military & government grade and commercial transportation grade. The military & government grade segment is expected to hold the largest market share as it is extensively used for improvement of satellite services and systems.
The market can be segmented into flight control, targeting, position navigation and timing, surveillance and reconnaissance, casualty evacuation, and others.
North America dominates the GPS anti jam market in terms of value share, owing to the presence of three leading providers, namely Raytheon Company, NovAtel Inc. and Rockwell Collins. Also, for the protection of GPS-based equipment used in navigation and scanning from signal interference, the U.S. Naval force uses anti-jamming technology. In addition, the U.S. government is taking initiatives to promote the acceptance and use of GPS as a world standard and encourage private sector investment in the use of GPS technologies and services.
In Europe, the GPS anti jamming market has been witnessing rapid growth. Many European firms such as BAE systems, Thales Group (France), and Cobham plc (U.K.) are already providing GPS goods and services, which is further driving market growth in Europe.
Attributing to ongoing territorial disputes between China and some South-East Asian nations in the South China Sea such as between China and Japan, and South Korea with North Korea's missile tests, the market is expected to witness significant growth in Asia-Pacific (APAC). These disputes are expected to increase defense spending, which will include expenditure on GPS anti-jamming systems.
Recently Honeywell Aerospace and Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) announced, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to develop a sense-and-avoid capability for IAI's Heron family of unmanned aerial systems (UASs) jointly. This Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) helps to improve IAI's groundbreaking capabilities, innovation, and technological development.
On 29 May 2018, Honeywell Aerospace and Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to develop a sense-and-avoid capability for IAI's Heron family of unmanned aerial systems (UASs) jointly. This Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) helps improve IAI's groundbreaking capabilities, innovation, and technological development. This agreement is expected to propel the growth of the GPS anti jamming market in the Middle East.
