Military Aircraft Avionics Market – Market Overview
Aircraft avionics are the electronic systems that are used for the communication, navigation, and as a support for various flight-critical applications in an airplane. These are highly critical components in the modern aircraft as they also aid in the provision of improved navigation and routing, enhanced situational awareness to pilots, and improved air traffic management (ATM) process.
Military avionics are very crucial during wartime for airborne operations. Avionics systems are essential for flight operations and other aircraft control functions. The modern military avionics system help to enhance safety and situational awareness. Thus, utilization of advanced military avionics system, are extremely important in modern asymmetric warfare. Military fleet of aircraft, are thus further fitted with modern military avionics systems to enhance the airborne capabilities.
In the early 2000s, NASA had envisioned NASA AvSP in partnership with the FAA, the US Department of Defense (DOD), aircraft manufacturers, airlines, and universities in the US. The program’s goal was to reduce the fatal aircraft accident rates by 90% in two and a half decades in the US. Several countries (respective air force) also give high priority to the improvement of flight safety and reliability. Such demands for the improvement of aviation safety and reliability boosts the aircraft global market, as the avionics systems such as the synthetic vision system, have proven to enhance situational awareness for pilots.
Limited visibility is one of the major factors leading to fatal aviation accidents worldwide. Incidents of aircraft collision and CFIT accidents occur because of the lack of awareness of surrounding terrain while operating in poor visibility. CFIT is one of the biggest causes of accidents in both fixed-wing aircraft and rotorcraft, and reducing this requires an accurate terrain database. Modern avionics provides pilots with clear views of their surroundings even in bad weather and low-light conditions. It offers virtual reality displays in aircraft cockpits showing terrain, air traffic, runway surfaces, landing and approach patterns, and obstacles that could affect an aircraft’s flight. It significantly improves safety and can help prevent aviation accidents.

Military Aircraft Avionics Market – Competitive Analysis
The market is highly competitive. There is strong competition among existing vendors, in terms of cost, product quality, reliability, and market share. To survive and succeed in such an intensely competitive environment, it is crucial for vendors to provide cost-effective and high-quality military aircraft avionics systems.
At present, only a few of the major vendors dominate the military aircraft avionics market. However, along with the shift in market dynamics from developed to emerging nations and change in nature of military procurement (amid defense budget cuts), the leading vendors will find themselves in an uncertain position in the value chain. Thus, it is highly imperative for the vendors to adjust their market presence and outlook as per the evolving demand in the market. For example, the uncertain procurement of next generation military fighter aircraft, and limited procurement of airborne early warning and fixed-wing surveillance aircraft can lead to intense market pressure for the military aircraft avionics system manufacturers. However, the longevity and service life of the existing military aircraft fleet has increased. Thus, there could be an immensely large market in terms of retrofit and aftermarket solutions.
To maintain market share and competitiveness, the major vendors should keep track of such market dynamics and changing demands. Moreover, they should be capable to provide rapid innovative solutions in the ever changing military systems market.
