Global Aerostat Systems Market to Reach US$ 37.2 Billion by 2032, Impelled by Rising Incidences of Border Threats

July 07, 2022 | Transportation and Logistics

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Aerostat Systems Market Report by Payload (Surveillance Radar, Inertial Navigation System, Thermal Imaging Camera, Electro-Optical Sensor, Electronic Intelligence, Communication Intelligence), Sub-System (Aerostat, Ground Control Station (GCS), Payload), Product Type (Balloon, Airship, Hybrid), Propulsion System (Powered Aerostats, Unpowered Aerostats), Class (Compact-Sized Aerostats, Mid-Sized Aerostats, Large-Sized Aerostats), and Region 2024-2032," the global aerostat systems market reached a value of US$ 14.1 Billion in 2023. Aerostat systems are aerodynamically shaped fastened balloons that are generally used for aerial surveillance applications. They are mainly adopted for detecting fast-moving objects and low-flying objects, including cruise and light aircraft. These systems support a variety of tactical and surveillance equipment, such as electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) sensors, high-resolution video cameras and communication repeaters, that assist military groups in emergency response decision-making. In comparison to drones and aircraft-based surveillance systems, they are durable, environmentally friendly and economical. The demand for aerostat systems is rising due to the growing need for persistent intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) solutions across the globe, thereby driving the market growth.

Global Aerostat Systems Market Trends:

The global market is primarily driven by the increasing product adoption across the defense sector. This is due to the rising incidences of border threats and geopolitical conflicts across several countries. Since aerostat systems are manufactured with fewer mechanical parts, which significantly reduces the need for periodic maintenance, this is providing a boost to the market. In line with this, the augmenting need for precision in geospatial information has encouraged leading players to heavily invest in the deployment of aerostat systems in order to enhance their battlefield data-sharing capabilities, thus impacting the market growth favorably. Additionally, the rising investments by public and private agencies for upgrading and improving the overall defense infrastructure are acting as another major growth-inducing factor. The market is further driven by continual technological advancements in the manufacturing and designing processes. Other factors, including continuous product innovations, rapid digitization and extensive research and development (R&D) activities conducted by key players, are also positively influencing the market. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 37.2 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 11% during 2024-2032.
