What are the Key Opportunities for Manufacturers of Digital Battlefield?

Integration of geographical information systems (GIS) and global positioning systems (GPS) can potentially improve military operations. Their integration can be effectively utilized in surveillance systems, through localization and visualization.

Besides, GIS can be customized to enable battlespace situation analysis. Functionalities of GPS, data fusion, spatial analysis, display of spatial data, and database management can play a pivotal role in modern warfare. Thus, investments in GPS-based solutions can boost demand for digital battlefields in the years to come.

Country-wise Insights

Which Region Offers Larger Opportunity for Sales of Digital Battlefields?

North America accounts for approximately 39% of the global sales value of digital battlefields. The region is expected to offer around US$ 23.2 Bn absolute dollar opportunities from 2021 to 2031. In 2019, the U.S. had military spending of US$ 732 Bn, the highest globally. The proportion of digital battlefield technologies in the country’s military budget has been increasing every year. The market in the country is expected to offer an absolute dollar opportunity of US$ 16 Bn from 2021 to 2031.

How Will China Open a Large Revenue Door for Digital Battlefields Over the Coming Years?

With US$ 261 Bn military spending, China was the second-largest military spender after the U.S. in 2019. The country has seen several neighboring and distant foes in the recent past, which has led it to constantly increase its military budget. Its tussle with the U.S., India, Japan, South Korea, Vietnam, Malaysia, and Taiwan has encouraged the country not only to invest in traditional warfare mechanisms but also in new technologies.

The country’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) ranks among the leading militaries equipped with artificial intelligence and anti-ship ballistic missiles. The country’s Strategic Support Force, which was established in 2015, is engaged in channelizing electronic warfare, cyber warfare, and psychological operations. China is expected to account for nearly 13% of global digital battlefield revenues by 2031, showcasing an absolute dollar opportunity of around US$ 14 Bn.
