Global Maritime Patrol Aircraft Market to Reach US$ 24.97 Billion by 2027, Propelled by Increasing Cross-Border Tensions

September 21, 2022

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Maritime Patrol Aircraft Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the global maritime patrol aircraft market size reached US$ 17.97 Billion in 2021. Maritime patrol aircraft, or MPA, is a fixed-wing airplane designed to facilitate wide-area monitoring, anti-ship warfare (AShW), anti-submarine warfare (ASW), and search and rescue (SAR) operations. It is characterized by large frames and the ability to operate over water for extended durations. It is usually equipped with sensors, infrared cameras, data links, over-the-horizon communications systems, and air-deployable measuring system buoys, such as square measures and torpedoes, to extend flights at low altitudes. It offers excellent reliability, security, flexibility, scalability, cost-effectiveness, and technical support availability. As a result, MPA finds extensive applications across the military and defense sectors to protect coastline trade routes and detect smuggling and other illegal cross-border activities. 

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.                  

Global Maritime Patrol Aircraft Market Trends:

The increasing cross-border tensions and the rising incidences of terrorism represent the primary factors driving the market growth. Additionally, governments of various countries are taking favorable initiatives to strengthen their military and defense forces by installing high-tech MPA. In line with this, the growing need for enhanced maritime intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities, especially for nations with long coastlines, has augmented the demand for MPA. Besides this, the surging investments in the rapid modernization of the existing aircraft used for maritime patrolling have propelled the market growth. Furthermore, several key players are upgrading MPA radars, sensor systems, and multifunctional digital screens that can search, detect, and collate stored data and automatically capture and track enemy warships. Along with this, the increasing collaborations of leading manufacturers with regulatory bodies to develop innovative manned MPA equipped with the modern surface ship and submarine detection systems are contributing to market growth. Moreover, the launch of the next-generation turbo-powered MPA with lower fuel burn rates and higher engine efficiency for surveillance and monitoring purposes has accelerated the product adoption rate. Other factors, including the expanding military and defense budget, stringent regulations regarding aviation carbon emissions, technological advancements, and ongoing research and development (R&D) activities in the aviation industry, are also providing a positive thrust to the market growth. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 24.97 Billion by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 5.40% during 2022-2027.
