Military Communications Market Research Report - Forecast to 2023
Global Military Communications Market by Product Types (Military Satcom, Radio System, and
Smartphones), Application (Command & Control, and Situational Awareness), Platform (Airborne, Ground
based, and Naval), and Region – Global Forecast till 2023.
Military communications involves all aspects related to communication of information and data by armed forces for efficient
functioning, military command, and control. Military communications generally depends on a vast and complex
communication network of equipment and protocols to convey information across people and geography. The increasing
need of secure, confidential and accurate real-time data transmission in military communications is expected to drive the
market during the forecast period. The major technological challenge plaguing this market is the presence of multiple
standards and devices, which makes it extremely difficult to achieve interoperability among so many different systems and
Military communications facilitates the secure and robust provision of timely connectivity, exercise of authority, and also in
the direction of forces across geographies. The mission critical nature of this market necessitates the integration of
emerging technologies such as robotics, artificial intelligence, meta-materials, to improve the delivery of the right
information to the right location and at the right time in an actionable format. Companies are estimated to invest in the
military communications market at a rapid rate during the forecast period, despite the economic slowdown, technological
challenges, and budget cuts.
Emerging technologies such as Ka-band is typically used for long-range transmission of data. Its greater bandwidth supports
faster transmission speeds. The beams generated in Ka-band are much more directive than the lower frequency bands,
energy is more precisely focused in this band, and the spectrum can be reused more intensively in various geographic areas.
With its stealth and performance, Ka-band is offering militaries long-range communication capability for the most
demanding contexts and requirements.
Global military communications market is estimated to witness a 12% CAGR during the period of 2017-2023.

The factors driving the growth of military communications market, are replacement of aging technology with more
advanced equipment, introduction of digital communications, usage of software-defined radio, and enhanced security
features. Another factor estimated to contribute to the growth of the military communications market, is growth in
investments by governments across the globe in the defense sector.
The military communications market is segmented based on device type, application, platform, and regions. On the basis of
device type, military SATCOM is the most widely used and has the largest market share; while, on the basis of the platform,
airborne is estimated to grow with the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Military users are focused on increasing
their coverage area, which would bring outstanding capabilities and high performance. For instance, Thales signed a
contract with Spanish Armed Forces to modernize their PR4G radios, in order to provide the users with enhanced capability
of high priority information dissemination. Similarly, BAE systems signed a contract with U.S. Navy to support radio and
communications systems design and integration for I3 surface combatant ships.
For instance, Inmarsat's Global Xpress is the first commercial high-throughput network that covers the entire world. Apart
from provision of in-flight connectivity, it also focuses on providing seamless data communication in military airborne
platform. Additionally, it is fully interoperable with military SATCOM (MILSATCOM). MILSATCOM is divided into three
categories, which are narrowband, wideband, and protected to match suitable frequency bands. MILSATCOM continues to
play a crucial role in military communications architecture, as it can provide voice, video, and data communications to users
globally. MILSATCOM must integrate and adopt new technologies to support these applications in warfighting applications.
The Mobile User Objective System is currently under development to meet future MILSATCOM requirements. It is required
to increase the capacity of platforms that are highly mobile and are operating in the most challenging propagation
The market is segmented based on region into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Middle East & Africa, and South
America. North America region is expected to dominate the market in future, due to rapid adoption of advanced
communications network and rising investment in the defense sector. Asia Pacific is second to the North America market in
military communications market, due to increasing investments by the governments of developing countries.
