The market is expected to cross US$ 35.81 billion in 2022 and is projected to hit US$ 90.25 billion by 2030, recording a CAGR of 12.2% during the forecast period.

Rising Development of Automated Systems for Military Operations Driving the Market Growth.

The growing digitalization of military systems by different technology suppliers is one of the major factors propelling the digital battlefield market growth. Several military forces are demanding advanced and digitalized automated systems that can carry out missions with the requirement of very lesser manual commands from the operators. For instance, deployment of automated countermeasure systems is generating new opportunities for market vendors that will also lead to development of advanced countermeasure systems.

Several countries have been already utilizing the concept of digital battlefield in the current war scenarios. For instance, in 2022, after the outbreak of Russia-Ukraine war, the Ukraine started working on keep its digital infrastructure up and running in the midst of the war with Russia while combating disinformation and cyberattacks from Russia. Further, the Ukrainians have already used a lot of digital technologies in the war with Russia that has led them to become one of the major countries to implement digital warfare technologies into their armed forces among other defense forces across the world.

Ground segment is expected to dominate the market in 2022 and is expected to retain its dominance during the forecast period as well. This is owing to increasing deployment of satellite-based communication and navigation systems across ground forces for which several vendors are collaboratively working on the development of portable and automated communication system technologies for different ground forces.

The Development of Cybersecurity Infrastructure to Provide Future Opportunities for Market Vendors During the Forecast Period.

With the rise in deployment of digital and cloud-based technologies, the defense industry users are demanding more advanced cybersecurity infrastructure solutions to retain their security in terms of data & information. Moreover, the development of advanced cybersecurity solutions by different market vendors is another major factor likely to generate huge opportunities during the forecast period. This is mainly propelled by rising threat of cyber attacks by attackers to degrade the capabilities of the armed force of any country. For this issue, a lot of military organizations are taking initiatives to lock their specific networks for foreign adversaries. For instance, in May 2022, the US DoD announced that it has been locking down sensitive networks amid cyber challenges from foreign adversaries that are trying to get access to military intel. Moreover, the deployment of digital battlefield infrastructure also boosts the adoption of several cloud-based technology which is generating new market opportunities for cybersecurity vendors across military sector.

Demand for Satellite- Based Monitoring is Boosting Digital Battlefield Market Growth

The growing investments by different government for development of satellite-based monitoring infrastructure for defense applications. Several countries are deploying a lot of satellites maintain surveillance on other countries, which is generating new market opportunities for market vendors across the world. This is mainly due to the rising trend of digital war between several countries that is leading to increase in developments of satellite-based monitoring systems by different vendors. For instance, in June 2022, the Indian Ministry of Defense announced an investment worth US$ 4.9 billion for upgrade of space-based surveillance system.

Similarly, the deployment of artificial intelligence (AI), internet of things (IoT), and wireless systems across defense sector is another major trend pushing the growth of digital battlefield market. Several defense contractors are majorly focusing on integrating AI, IoT, and wireless technologies into their products to provide enhanced and innovative solutions to their respective customers.
