Industry Insights

The global command and control systems market size was valued at USD 19.29 billion in 2018 and is projected to register at a CAGR of 3.8% over the forecast period. The rising need for situational awareness in military, security and surveillance, law enforcement, utilities, and manufacturing industries coupled with an alarming rise in terrorist activities are expected to drive the growth. Moreover, geopolitical conflicts between Middle Eastern and Asia Pacific countries are anticipated to further fuel the growth owing to the technological competencies provided by the Command and Control (C2) systems.

The C2 technology is extensively used in defense and commercial sectors as the command centers have the ability to bring numerous different disciplines together and establish interconnection between them for successfully performing the operations. The advent of next-generation defense technologies and a significant rise in military budgets of the countries in Asia Pacific are some of the predominant factors attributed to the rising demand. These systems find vast application in the global terror controlling activities and the multinational military operations across the world. In military operations, the command and control technologies enable real-time battlefield information sharing and provide a situational awareness that enhances the operational efficiencies of military activities.

North America command and control systems market

Growing terrorist influence and incidents in the Middle East and rising multinational military operations are expected to fuel the growth of the C2 systems market over the forecast period. Additionally, increasing global awareness regarding technological benefits such as situation assessment, information exchange, and operational control can escalate the demand. Moreover, rapidly evolving defense technology and growing regional conflicts are expected to boost the adoption of these systems in the defense sector.

The commercial sector is actively adopting C2 technologies to better manage mission-critical operations. The airports and manufacturing plants, power plants, oil and gas installation plants, and research labs are widely adopting command and control technologies for better operations and safety.

The U.S. regional market is estimated to witness significant growth over the forecast period. The country's joint military operations with the Middle Eastern countries are primarily fueling the demand for C2 systems. The presence of prominent vendors and access to advanced technologies is anticipated to further boost the C2 market over the forecast period.

Platform Insights

C2 systems are used in land, naval, space, and airborne mission-critical operations. They are designed to meet the specific needs of defense forces in battlefield operations, whilst also catering to the requirements of commercial industries in the industry mission-critical operations. These systems facilitate effective mission planning, critical decision-making, successful execution of plans, and provide situational awareness, which is considered a crucial factor for success in land, naval, space, or airborne missions.

The maritime segment is likely to reflect the highest growth over the forecast period, attributed to increasing investment in naval development activities and a rise in marine trade activities that require complete control over critical shipping activities.

Application Insights

The defense segment is expected to hold the highest market share over the forecast period as these systems enable users to make accurate decisions for completing mission-critical operations. Real-time information is essential in mission-critical situations as it provides precise and up-to-date information about battlefield conditions and is thus, widely adopted by defense agencies.

The commercial segment is expected to expand at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period owing to an increasing need for situational awareness in various industrial operations related to manufacturing and transportation. The systems are widely adopted by industries such as manufacturing, oil and gas, transportation, and utilities. The C2 solutions are customized to meet their individual industrial requirements to effectively manage critical operations.

Solution Insights

On the basis of solutions. The command and control systems market is trifurcated into hardware, software, and services. Hardware held the largest market share in 2018 owing to the extensive usage of sensors, displays and peripherals, video walls, video screens, radar systems, and other hardware in the control room centers.

Global command and control systems market

The software segment is projected to expand at the highest CAGR over the forecast period. The segment includes is further categorized into advanced camera control software, cyber security software, perimeter intrusion detection software, and physical security information management software. The software enables the efficient functioning of intelligent sensors, GPS, and other hardware used in command centers. Increasing usage of intelligent software in command centers is expected to drive segment growth in the near future.

Regional Insights

North America held the largest market share in 2018, owing to rapid technological developments and the concentration of the major C2 system providers. Additionally, collaborative multinational military operations practiced by the U.S. with the local governments in the Middle East are contributing to the regional growth. Furthermore, the presence of critical infrastructure such as airports and power plants among others is also contributing to the regional demand.

The Asia Pacific is anticipated to emerge as the fastest-growing regional market over the forecast period. Geopolitical conflicts within the region and the rising occurrence of terror attacks are some of the key factors boosting the adoption of the C2 systems.

Command and Control Systems Market Share Insights

The key participants in the C2 systems market are Lockheed Martin Corporation, BAE Systems, Rockwell Collins, The Boeing Company, to enumerate a few.

The rise in the number of key players is expected to intensify the competition on a global scale. Increasing competition is expected to lower the cost and encourage the development of technologically-advanced C2 systems over the forecast period. Companies actively engage in R&D activities with a view to developing and introducing effective systems that can cater to the requirements of the defense industry.

Increasing terrorist activities and economic growth of the developing countries are presenting new growth avenues for the C2 systems providers. A majority of the established providers are based in North America. APAC, on the other hand, is projected to proffer significant growth opportunities over the forecast period.
