- Aerospace and Defense Research - Aerospace and Defense Research Frost & Sullivan Global Surface-to-Air Missile Market, Forecast to 2023 The growing number of missile attacks in the Middle East, coupled with North Korea's long range missile tests, China's expansion in the South China Sea, and Russia's sale of S-400 has inspired growth within the surface-to-air missile (SAM) market. SAM systems were originally designed to counter threats posed by enemy aircraft, but advanced fighter aircraft and hypersonic missiles are driving research and development spending on the advancement of SAMs. The short range air defense missiles is the most promising segment, as it has a large global inventory that can help develop and reengineer the systems. While all the major players are focused on selling their major missiles, there is a large window for new market participants. Some of the questions this research will address include: Is the SAM market growing, how long will it continue to grow for, and at what rate? What segment of the existing SAM market offers the best opportunity for potential market entrants? Who are the existing competitors within the SAM market and which companies control the largest share of the market? How are companies collaborating within the market? What factors are driving or restraining the global SAM market? Which regions lead the market in terms of future spending? What are the key trends, events, and transactions in the markets around the world? SAM, for this research, is defined as the systems devised for launch from a ground station, ground vehicle, or surface ship vessel as a defense weapon against air threats. The market does not include nuclear or intercontinental ballistic missile systems specifically designed for strategic warfare. The regions reviewed include Asia-Pacific (APAC), Europe, the Middle East (ME), and only the United States (US) in North America as other countries in the region were not active during the research period. Although the China and Russia markets are active, they are not explored in great depth because their transactions are not publicized in detail and they do not transact with most North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) countries. The spending forecast for this research is based on available government budget documents, international arms control reporting, defense journals, and press releases. The market share for this research is calculated using estimates based on government contracts, company financial documents, and publicly announced agreements. Market share figures and spending data applied to construct forecasts may not tally? due to the structure and multi-year components of various contracts and agreements. The research is segmented by the following missile system categories: Long Range SAMs (LRSAM), Medium to short Range SAMs (MRSAM), Short Range Air Defense (SHORAD) and Missile Defense. Readers should note that a significant number of LRSAMs are also capable of missile defense. Fri, 3 Aug 2018 00:00:00 +0100 Global Shipborne Anti-Ship/Land Attack Missiles Market, Forecast to 2023 This research service provides an overview of the global anti-ship/land attack missiles (SAS/LAM) market. It includes categories of spending such as research, development, testing, and evaluation (RDT&E), procurement, and services. SAS/LAM is defined as missiles specifically designed to launch from naval vessels and defeat adversary surface ships, submarines, fast attack craft, swarming vessels, unmanned naval vehicles, and/or ground targets. The study does not include strategic nuclear armed missiles. Some SAS/LAM weapons can be launched from non-ship platforms, and deployed against multiple targets (including aircraft and missiles). The focus is on weapons used against ships or land targets at all ranges. Launch systems and canisters are not included in this study, though in some cases, programs or contracts do not make distinctions between weapons and launchers, so estimates are made. Spending levels for this research is defined as the funding furnished by government budget documents, contracts, industry media announcements, and analyst estimates. Unit prices are not included as they vary widely as a result of quantities ordered, discounts, political factors, and additional services that may be included in contracts. The market is segmented into the following regions: Asia-Pacific (APAC), Europe, the Middle East (ME), and the United States. General information and spending estimates for Russia (Europe), and China (APAC), are included because they are major producers, have large navies, and are major exporters of SAS/LAM weapons. Mexico, Canada, South America, African nations, and others are not included due to small volumes, comparatively low activity levels, and time constraints. Russia and China have made major upgrades to their SAS/LAMs. This combined with a return to cold war era level and blue water naval patrols gives them a very good anti ship capability. In addition, both nations have exported these upgraded weapons to client states, driving more nations to upgrade their own SAS/LAM capability through domestic efforts or purchases from western nations. Due to the upgraded naval capabilities of Russia and China, the United States and other western nations and their allies or clients are also upgrading their missiles to extend range and lethality in order to deter naval warfare. These upgraded missiles and C4ISR capabilities also enhance joint operations among mutual defense treaty signatories.--BEGIN PROMO--

Small-satellite Launch Services Market, Quarterly Update Q2 2018, Forecast to 2030 This study forecasts small-satellite launch demand based on operators maturity, mass classes, and user segments. It also details the projected small satellite launch capacity supply and analyses the alignment of launch demand and supply for multiple forecast scenarios. The study includes the new developments in the small satellite value chain for Q1 2018. Small satellites are at the spotlight of the evolution of space industry. The small-satellite ecosystem is expanding at an accelerated pace with new entrants offering innovative new space solutions and existing players expanding their portfolio by investments in the small-satellite value chain. It becomes very important to investigate the past and current state of the small satellite market and forecast the future scenarios. Many small satellite constellation operators have advanced in their development processes and will generate continuous and recurring launch demand for their constellation installation and replacement missions. At present, nearly all small satellites use the rideshare capacity as a secondary payload on the existing launch vehicles. This makes their project schedule and mission requirements dependent on the primary payload. Also, the existing rideshare capacity will not be sufficient to address the small satellite launch demand in future. Many incumbent and new players have sensed the upcoming small satellite demand and have started planning for providing dedicated services and launch flexibility to the small satellite operators in order to capture the future small satellite launch market. What makes our reports unique? The report tracks the changing dynamics every quarter and updates the forecast based on latest events. The report exposes the readers to the latest forecast numbers and the major changes, empowering them to the most informed decision making. A bottom-up and detailed approach is applied to forecast the small-satellite launch demand. The study defines multiple forecast scenarios based on the maturity of satellite operators. More than 250 operators across the user segments are considered for the forecast. Number of small satellites, payload mass, and launch revenue are forecasted on the basis of defined scenarios, satellite mass classes, and user segments. The study also includes the launch capacity forecast for both rideshare and dedicated launch services segments and analyses the alignment between the small satellite launch demand and capacity supply.--BEGIN PROMO--

Research Scope:

This research service examines President Trump’s DoD budget request for 2019. It will highlight some of the programs that offer the best opportunities for growth and penetration into the DoD market. Cited funding data reflects only those funds assigned for discretionary spending and does not include mandatory fees. Years in this document refer to government fiscal years for the budget and calendar years for contracts and competitive data.

This research service focuses on the US Department of Defense (DoD) budget spending categories, including research, development, testing, and evaluation (RDT&E); procurement; operations and maintenance (O&M); and services. The intent of this study is to indicate which segments of products and services the DoD has emphasized in the budget request so that firms can invest in these priority areas. Contract activity for the US DoD for 2017 is also included. The 2019 budget is comprised of spending plans for the Army, Navy/Marine Corps, Air Force, and Joint Service. The base year for financial spending is 2017, and the market forecast is from 2017 to 2023.

Market share and competitive analysis for this research is based on government contract obligations distributed in 2017. Over 50,000 companies received contracts from the DoD during 2017; therefore, a list of “other” companies is not included with this research. The competitive analysis portion of this research focuses on the overall top ten companies for DoD, and it highlights the top 5. The budget request is subject to variances and changes until Congress actually passes the bill enacting the budget. Several DoD agencies will not be reviewed in detail because most of their discretionary spending is dedicated to salaries and operating expenses. Any significant findings associated with the agencies not fully reviewed will be discussed under the key findings portion of the research.
