GPS Anti-Jamming Protects GPS Technology Has Revolutionized Modern Warfare In Worldwide Market

Date : Dec 13, 2018

New blog published by Ameco Research which offers insights on the global Anti-Jamming market. GPS Anti-Jamming protects GPS receivers from interference and intentional jamming. By the time the GPS signal reaches the Earth's surface is weak and is susceptible to being overcome by higher power Radio Frequency (RF) energy. Even a small jammer of about 10 Watts power can disrupt an unprotected C/A Code receiver for about 30 kilometers (line of sight). GPS Anti-Jamming uses power minimization to reduce the effect of interference and jamming so that the GPS receiver can continue to operate correctly. GPS technology has revolutionized modern warfare. Military organizations regularly depend on satellite technology for accurate positioning, timing and communications. But GPS signals received on Earth are weak and susceptible to interference and intentional jamming. Indeed, the signals are usually obscured by thermal noise and only observable with a tuned signal analyzer - in other words a GPS receiver. A simple low power jammer, readily available via the World Wide Web, can overpower GPS signals within a large area, denying a position solution and timing. GPS anti-jam technology is quickly evolving. Until recently, size and cost considerations meant anti-jam systems were only feasible for expensive assets, such as strategic aircraft and capital ships. According to the report, global revenue for Anti-Jamming market was valued at $ 3.54 Billion in 2017, and is expected to generate revenue of $ 5.68 Billion by end of 2025, growing at a CAGR of slightly above 6.11% between 2017 and 2025.

Global Anti-Jamming Market: Market Driver and Restraint

The increasing demand for secured weapons guided systems, increasing vulnerability of GPS signals due to development of low-cost GPS jammers, and present developments to improve the overall GPS infrastructure are the major factors driving the growth of this market.

Global Anti-Jamming Market: Forecast by Application

This segment includes Military & Government and Commercial. In the applications, the Military & Government segment was estimated to account for the highest market share of 91.51 % in 2017 and is expected to gain significant market share by the end of 2025.

Global Anti-Jamming Market: Key Players

Raytheon, Rockwell Collins, Novatel, Cobham, Mayflower, BAE Systems, Thales Group, Harris and Hwa Create Technology, are the key vendors included in this report. This market is fragmented and contains multiple local and multinational vendors. The issue is export control. This, of course, varies by country. In the U.S., a CRPA developed towards a defense program is likely to have International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) restrictions attached to it. In Canada, CRPAs are subject to the Controlled Goods Program. In the UK, CRPAs sit on the “dual-use” export control list, which recognizes that CRPAs have both military and non-military application. An export license is usually required.

Global Anti-Jamming Market: Forecast by Form

This segment includes Nulling System, Beam Steering Systems and Civilian Systems. The nulling systems type of anti-jamming techniques accounted for a share of 70.02% in 2017; the market was valued at USD 2,477.28 million in the same year and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.11% between 2017 and 2025. The market for beam steering systems was valued at USD 760.46 million in 2017 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.49% during the forecast period. A major reason for beam steering systems holding such a low market share is that they are comparatively new in the market since the last decades and hence are not widely used. They are very expensive and are used only on high-end military vehicles such as strike aircrafts. For a long time nulling systems was the only known type of anti-jamming technique. However, with the development of beam steering systems and the civilian anti-jamming systems, the market for anti-jamming is expected to increase.

Global Anti-Jamming Market: Forecast by Region

North America held the largest share of the Anti-jamming market in 2017, while the market in APAC is expected to be the second-largest by 2022. This growth of the market in APAC can be attributed to the ongoing territorial disputes in the South China Sea between China and some South-East Asian countries, between Japan and North Korea, and disputes between South Korea and North Korea. These political tensions are expected to fuel the military expenditures in these respective countries, and a significant portion of this expenditure is expected to be invested in GPS anti-jamming. The Anti-jamming market in Rest of world is expected to grow at a moderate rate. The volatile situation in Syria and the threats posed by the Islamic State (ISIS) group has prompted many of the regional powers there such as Turkey, Israel and Saudi Arabia to increase defense spending for their armed forces, which includes installing GPS anti-jamming systems.
