A military aircraft is any fixed-wing or rotary-wing aircraft that is operated by a legal or insurrectionary armed service of any type. They are used for combat missions or for the transportation of military personnel and military supplies. Many of the global military aircraft fleets are in service for decades. This fleet of aircraft is getting older and is getting closer to becoming obsolete. There is a serious need to get the fleet upgraded and retrofitted with modern aircraft systems, to extend their service life for modern combat situations and strategic missions.

Market Dynamics

The global military aircraft market is undergoing a major period of transition.Military forces across the globe are renewing their military aircraft fleets to keep pace with the changing nature of modern warfare. Such growing requirement for advanced military aircraft is a major factor driving the market growth. Many defence authorities are also focusing on renovating their older military airborne fleet with enhanced and upgraded CNS(communication navigation surveillance) systems. Also, several surveillance systems are being installed in airplanes as emergency warning systems to enhance aircraft situational awareness of pilots and reduce their workload.

Military aircraft manufacturers are also significantly spending on R&D, leading to the growth of technologies to increase speed, destructive force, power and stealth capabilities. Autopilot landing systems is the new trend in the market, which could help during rough weather.

Market Segmentation

The Global Military Aircraft Modernization market can be segmented on the basis of its product type and geography. By the type the market can be segmented into Combat aircraft andTransport aircraft, of which the combat aircraft segment dominated the market and is expected to occupy the largest market share by 2020. Combat airplanes play the most significant role in battlegrounds and are immensely overused by armed forces. These aircraft are used for countering enemy attacks as well as launching attacks on enemy grounds. This has propelled several defence ministries to focus on fitting the jets with the most advanced offensive and defensive mechanisms and equipment.

Geographical Analysis

Geographically is segmented into North America, South America, Europe, Middle East & Africa and Asia Pacific. The global military aircraft market is undergoing a major period of transition. United States of America which is by far the biggest spender on military aircraft is now reducing its defence expenditure and plans to reduce its defence expenditure by up to 20% in the next decade. This will give a boost to the retrofit and aircraft modernization market in the region, as the country will increasingly spend lesser amounts on new aircraft.

Key Players

Leading players in the market are -
--> Boeing
--> Elbit Systems
--> IAI
--> Lockheed Martin
--> Rockwell Collins

Other prominent player in the military aircraft modernization and retrofit market includes BAE Systems, Dassault Aviation, Leonardo-Finmeccanica, Northrop Grumman, and Thales Group.


Increased utilization of COTS systems in military aircraft will offer growing opportunities for commercial suppliers to enter the military aircraft modernization and retrofit market.
