C4ISR Market: Rising Threat of Cyber Crime Worldwide to Drive Demand

Ongoing technological innovation is leading to a fall in price of the services which is expected to push the demand for C4ISR market in future.


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/21/2017 -- C4ISR implies command, control, communication, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance. The market is expected to witness robust growth during the forecast due to rising demand for unmanned systems, cyber crime and terrorist activities across the globe.

The rising concern of asymmetrical warfare is one of the primary factors driving the growth of C4ISR market. Furthermore, the integration C4ISR helps in better surveillance and coordination of the military forces. Hence they are less prone from the threat of sudden attacks. Moreover, the systems enable the armed forces to give the right information at the right moment. The rise in terrorist activities in Middle East region is further creating the need for these systems. In addition, the system is also being used in geospatial intelligence as it helps in round the clock surveillance and data collection. In addition, the defense sector of several developed and developing nations are upgrading from their conventional analog surveillance systems to digital interface for better security of the nation. Furthermore, the increasing trend for short mission cycles is resulting into the need for faster data transmission between forces, which is further aiding to the growth of the market.

However, there are certain factors which are hindering the growth of this market at large. Certain developed countries like the U.S. and U.K. are cutting down their expense in defense sector. This in return is reducing the need for upgraded systems and hindering the growth for C4ISR market. Furthermore, the integration of these systems makes the army or the armed forces dependant on the systems. If the system gives wrong or inaccurate information, the result can be destructive.

Nevertheless, the market is expected to show positive growth in future due to the rising threat of cyber crime worldwide, which is leading to the need for stronger online security. Moreover, the ongoing technological innovation is leading to a fall in price of the services which is expected to push the demand for C4ISR market in future. In addition, the emerging concept of next generation IP network with better communication and internet facilities is further expected to create demand for the market during the forecast period.
