In addition, it provides an overview of the key priorities, threats, and opportunities for the global defense industry over the next six months.

Key Market Issues
Using a GNSS/GPS receiver in mountainous or canyon areas, underground, steep terrains, tunnels, clothing, or any satellite denied environment, has proved to be problematic in military operations. Furthermore, armed forces are posed with the challenges of accurate positioning using the GPS/GNSS systems, when the receivers are unable to connect directly to the network due to lower penetration. This is a strong driver for various militaries who are now trying to reduce dependency on GPS/GNSS technology by creating a solution which works to collaborate between various technologies for better results.

The magnetic storms and solar radio emissions have the capacity to destruct the satellite technical infrastructure posing a potential threat to the performance of GNSS/GPS navigation. Space weather events, such as solar storms can disturb GPS signals, interrupting navigation and creating difficult situations for nations to successfully carry out surveillance, or attack activities. Moreover, the damage would largely depend on the magnitude of the Solar flare where a large amount of energy is released and this may break the satellite communication completely.

Key Highlights
Satellite navigation has been at the fore-front of technological developments. GPS, the most efficient and widely used satellite navigation system, is in the process of being upgraded by the technologically advanced satellites called GPS III. Once manufactured only by the US, satellite navigation systems are now being developed by other countries as well. The IRNSS in India, COMPASS in China, and Galileo in Europe are examples of systems that are either operational or are expected to be so in the next few years. These navigation systems are expected to create new opportunities in the GPS/GNSS market.

The military GPS/GNSS technology is expanding its horizon beyond the basic characteristics of navigation and tracking. The use of GPS, in conjunction with a number of software applications, has expanded its use in military operations. A number of new technologies are now embedded with GPS receivers to produce a more sophisticated military tool. Recently, a Swiss based company developed a device called GPS Log Book based on the U-Blox technology. The new device has extended the scope of GPS technology to the administrative side of military operations. It provides an easy way for military drivers to automatically keep an accurate travel log book which can be securely accessed later from anywhere via a web interface.

“The Global Military AmmunitionMarket 2013-2023” offers the reader detailed analysis of the global military ammunitionmarket over the next ten years, alongside potential market opportunities to enter the industry, using detailed market size forecasts.

What are the key drivers behind recent market changes?
Numerous countries in the world are currently involved in conflicts with their neighboring nations owing to reasons such as territorial disputes and terrorism. This situation is most commonly evident in the Asia Pacific region due to the rapid economic and military development among countries such as China, India, Japan, South Korea and North Korea among others. All the above mentioned countries are making rapid efforts in order to strengthen their military forces in order to be battle ready and thus involved in an arms race. And, battle readiness demands possessing adequate ammunition of various kinds including small caliber, artillery, mortar, large caliber and medium caliber. For example, India and Pakistan share tense relations owing to the territorial disputes between each other, as well as cross-border terrorism. The countries' militaries are involved in frequent cross-border firing despite their ceasefire agreement signed a decade ago. China and South Korea too share hostile relations owing to the Chinese government's intentions to reunite both the countries which are strongly opposed by the latter nation. Thus, South Korea is also making significant efforts in order to defend the Chinese military power when needed, though with the support of its allies such as the US.

Key Market Issues
  • Emerging from almost three decades of domestic dispute and instability, one of the prime challenges that Angola encounters is that of a weak government, and large-scale corruption at all levels of the economy. According to the Corruption Perceptions Index 2012 of Transparency International, Angola is classified as a highly corrupt country. Corruption has manifested itself in various forms ranging from bureaucratic and political affairs, misappropriation of public resources to fraud transactions related to state assets.
  • Although the defense budget of Angola stands at US$5.8 billion in 2013, the government invests only 9.1% of its budget for capital expenditure. During the review period, an average of 4.4% of the defense budget was allocated for capital expenditure, representing a relatively low allocation for the purchase of equipment and high-technology arms and ammunition. Although the allocation is expected to increase to 9.4% over the forecast period, it remains highly inadequate for the procurement of high-tech defense equipment.  As a result, the country's relatively small defense budget does not attract foreign defense companies, and the prohibition of FDI in the defense sector also acts as a barrier for market entry for foreign suppliers.

Key Highlights
  • The country's civil war that lasted 27 years has necessitated the initiation of a military modernization program, to cater to the growing needs for one of the biggest militaries on the African continent. Over the years, the Angolan army has failed to maintain its existing arsenal of weapons, which have now deteriorated and are not fit for use in combat conditions. Additionally, the country has largely neglected the importance of a strong naval unit in the past, as it did not procure any advanced equipment for its navy. This was primarily because the government trimmed the number of naval officers considerably, leading to the shortage of skill and expertise needed to operate the advanced naval equipment. However, the government has now begun to show renewed focus to revive its navy's capabilities, in order to offer enhanced protection to its vast stretching western coastline. These have triggered an equipment modernization program that includes the procurement of combat aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicles and other advanced arms over the forecast period.
  • Angola carries a long history of internal conflicts which has marred its economic growth and stability. The civil war - a struggle for power between the Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA), the National Liberation Front of Angola (FNLA) and the National Union for the Total Independence of Angola (UNITA) - lasted for 27 years, ending in 2002 and has destroyed the basic infrastructure of the nation including roads, railways, and bridges. Although the country has made immense progress in terms of political and economic stability, tension still exists within the nation, and there are even reports of occasional attacks against the police and Angolan Armed Forces (FAA) convoys. To handle such unstable situations, the Angolan government maintains a paramilitary force that works towards establishing law and order, protecting private and public property, increasing detection, prevention and investigation of crimes within the country. Angola is expected to modernize its paramilitary force to enable them to handle threats posed by the internal conflicts armed with sophisticated equipment.
  • Following the end of the civil war in 2002, Angola imported a fair amount of military hardware until 2009. Moldova stood as the prime supplier to the country, during this period, and aircraft accounted as the major imported item. However, extending from 2010 to 2013, no imports were recorded for Angola. During the forecast period, a present scenario is expected to change owing to the government's steps to modernize its armed forces. As a result, the company is expected to import defense equipment such as aircraft, helicopters, tanks and small weapons.

Key Market Issues
  • Foreign investors may be deterred from entering the Omani defense market because of a scarcity of skilled labor, induced by the lack of industrial capabilities within the country. Although the government is focusing on making amendments, the unemployment rate has increased in recent years resulting in internal conflicts, which have added to the foreign companies' woes.
  • Historically, companies based in the UK and the US have dominated the Omani defense market owing to their strategic and military relations with it. Oman receives military and financial help from the US in return of use of its military bases by the American troops. Apart from these two countries, Oman maintains strong defense ties with France and procured substantial equipment during the review period. Oman's close relationship with the UK, the US and France is set to continue in the forecast period as a result of its dependence on their companies for the maintenance and life support of its equipment and weapons. As long as these relationships remain constant, suppliers from these three countries are set to dominate the Omani defense market, intensifying the rivalry in the market.

Key Highlights
  • Over the last decade, the Middle East has witnessed a gradual decline in its overall security, owing to a rise in extremism, sectarian violence, and insurgency. This, coupled with an increase in the countries' purchasing power, has led to an arms race in the region. Substantial weapons deals signed during the last couple of years and a huge potential for further procurement has made arms suppliers take notice of the opportunities available in the region. Oman's neighbors, such as Saudi Arabia, UAE, and Bahrain, are focusing heavily on the procurement of advanced weapons to counter nuclear powered Iran. Oman maintains strong diplomatic relationships with both the US and Iran, and faces reduced threat levels from both internal and external factors. However, despite its current neutral stance, the country may be forced to join its neighbors in coalition against Iran. This has propelled Oman to invest in building its defense capabilities and join the ongoing arms race in the region in the last two years. The country's military modernization efforts are also aimed at increasing its visibility in the defense arena and becoming the substantial contributor in the Gulf Cooperation Committee (GCC).
  • Oman has substantial oil reserves, and oil exports are the primary contributor to its economy. The country's offshore oil exploration infrastructure is threatened by various militant groups and Al-Qaeda. Oman employs the services of the National Guard, a semiautonomous body, which has guard duties on the border and at oil fields, utilities, and other strategic locations. In addition, its Navy started procuring patrol vessels and frigates for the protection of its maritime oil trade routes. Oman is expected to continue to invest in the protection of its oil industry, which will create market opportunities for technologies catering to the identification and access control, surveillance, perimeter protection, information technology security, and command, control, communications and intelligence (C3I) markets.
  • The lack of a well-established infrastructure to produce defense equipment domestically has made Oman rely on imports from foreign companies. During the review period, the country's defense imports peaked in 2012 after sharp drop during 2010-2011. Aircraft dominated the imports during this period, with the US and France being the preferred sources. Major contracts signed during 2011-2012 will drive the country's imports over the forecast period, which is expected to see substantial growth.

Why was the report written?

The Global Man-Portable Military Electronics Market 2013-2023” offers the reader detailed analysis of the global man-portable military electronics market over the next ten years, alongside potential market opportunities to enter the industry, using detailed market size forecasts.
 

What are the key drivers behind recent market changes?

Militaries around the world are focusing on soldier modernization programs and this development has directly influenced growth in the man-portable electronics category. Soldier modernization programs comprise advanced man-portable devices for communication, force protection, and surveillance and reconnaissance operations. The recent successful experiences with the soldier modernization kits in Afghanistan and Iraq, has increased trust in man-portable devices amongst soldiers, especially during contemporary and counterinsurgency operations. In addition, the miniaturization of man-portable devices as part of soldier modernization kits has had a positive influence on category growth. Earlier, a number of communication, ISTAR and force protection devices such as tactical networking radios, sensors, anti-tank missile systems, GPRS systems, navigation and enemy location device, and UAVs were not portable and mounted to vehicles. The portability of these devices as part of the soldier gear has led to a number of new possibilities for the soldiers in the land-based combat operations. The French, FELIN program is considered by some to have the most technologically advanced man-portable devices and a number of other large militaries, such as the US, the UK and Russia are also allocating their military budgets to update their indigenous soldier modernization programs. These developments will have a long term positive impact on the category expenditure.

Key Features and Benefits
  • The report provides detailed analysis of the market for man-portable military electronics during 2013-2023, including the factors that influence why countries are investing or cutting expenditure on man-portable military electronics. It provides detailed expectations of growth rates and projected total expenditure.
  • The costs of ISTAR and communication systems are increasing with the advancements in technologies and required capabilities demanded by military. The RandD costs have become so high due to which the militaries around the world are encouraging suppliers to work in partnership and the use of lower cost COTS products. Therefore, there are a number of joint development projects that are being undertaken to share the cost without compromising on such initiatives.
  • The success of man-portable miniature UAVs (M-UAVs) in the Afghanistan and Iraq wars has motivated a number of militaries around the world to procure M-UAVs for surveillance purposes.  The uses of M-UAVs also help to reduce the number of causalities during surveillance operations, a prime concern for militaries in recent times. Heavily used by European and American soldiers during the wars, miniature UAVs production is expected to increase as the technology moves up the ladder in the category. Most aerial vehicles do not require landing strips, have strong flight arrangements, and are easy to deploy; therefore becoming an indispensable component of soldiers' gear and man pack kits. As the technology evolves in this sector, UAVs are expected to feature increasing stealth characteristics, which will make this segment even more promising and attractive for militaries. Although these new additions to the soldier's gear have increased the weight of soldier packs, and they are carrying the heaviest load of equipment ever, soldiers are not refuting the utility of the equipment and are ready to compromise their clothing to include the miniature UAVs. Major programs in the M-UAV segment include the US$283 million Raven RQ-11B and RQ-20A Puma program by the US, and the Skylark-II program by Israel.
  • Military operations are becoming highly sophisticated around the world to meet the demand for land based combat operations. Interoperability and strategic communications have become essential in ensuring success in land based attacks. The need for portable electronics has now become paramount for quick response, especially for land based operations which don't rely on vehicle-mounted systems. These requirements, coupled with the experiences drawn from Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts have led the defense companies to develop advanced portable electronic systems to cater to the growing demand. Some of the portable devices such as tactical radios provide infantry forces with an ability to rapidly establish relatively high bandwidth connections and share information at a rapid speed with other military stations. Making greater use of these systems improve situational awareness at multiple levels of command and facilitate improved coordination between units, especially in those conflicts where multinational coalition forces operate. There are few advanced communication equipment that are able to transmit real-time information and data to and from the command center to the battlefield, without revealing the location of the command center to potential enemy signals intelligence (SIGINT) systems. These devices were actively used by European and American forces in the Afghan and Iraq wars, helping them to defeat surprise guerilla attacks.

Key Market Issues
  • The development of military communication systems that facilitate truly network centric operations (NCOs) has continued to present challenges for researchers and developers for more than a decade. During this time a great deal of focus has been placed on applying commercial products and internet design methodologies to military systems. While this strategy has met with some success, it does not always translate well to the more challenging environment encountered in military operations. Some of these fundamental challenges include harsh radio frequency (RF) propagation environments, severe spectrum limitations, varying degrees of node mobility and stringent security requirements related to data encryption. Adding to these fundamental challenges, is the fact that military networks need to support a variety of applications, with needs ranging from real time information exchange, to reliable large volume data dissemination. Given these issues which are yet to be resolved in their entirety, the providers of man portable electronics systems face a pressing need to enhance their technological capabilities in order to ensure that network-centric doctrines can be implemented down to the infantry fighter who will carry the related equipment. If sufficient technological know-how is not available in the near future, a number of man portable electronics that are intended to enable Network Centric Warfare will have become redundant and in the process, will work to defeat the very purpose of networked warfare.
  • Reducing the weight of man portable equipment without compromising combat performance is a key challenge for the man portable electronics industry. The incorporation of sophisticated portable electronics to protect and empower the soldier has resulted in an exponential increase in the total weight being carried. The combined weight of equipment prevents infantry personnel from being agile, mobile and effective war fighters and lives of soldiers are being put at risk as heavy lifesaving equipment is often being left behind. Defense manufacturing companies worldwide are focusing on sourcing and integrating the most affordable lightweight man portable electronics technology to reduce the burden to personnel. Defense ministries are also funding research and development projects that focus on reducing the weight of equipment, power and communication systems that soldiers carry. For example, the US, through its Nett Warrior program, is making substantial progress in lightening the soldiers load while still delivering next generation capabilities. The UK MoD plans to reduce the load on soldiers from 70 kg to no more than 25 kg, under the Reducing the Burden on the Dismounted Soldier (RBDS) program. However, a number of technological advancements are required in order to achieve these goals, which poses a significant challenge for market participants who have to maintain the effectiveness of man portable electronics systems, while at the same time reduce the weight of this equipment within prescribed limits.

Key Highlights

Due to the use of sophisticated electronic technologies for communications, surveillance, sensing, detecting and destroying enemy forces, electric power requirements are increasing over the years. Batteries with limited power capacity, leading to a frequent need for re-supply, are limiting mobility and acting as a deterrent to effective field operations. As rechargeable batteries can lower the soldier's burden and lead to less logistics support for the supply of batteries, many countries worldwide are favoring them. Reducing the size and weight of man-portable military electronic systems without compromising the electronic warfare capabilities of soldiers is the main focus of defense ministries of various countries. Moreover, modern combat doctrine has shifted to quicker strikes by smaller teams and special forces. This is partly due to defense budget cuts by the US and most European countries, and the rise of asymmetric warfare. This has led to the development of ‘light' communication systems to provide mission flexibility, C2, provide situational awareness and reduce soldier fatigue. In 2013, SBG Systems of France introduced the Ekinox INS MEMS-based inertial navigation system (INS) that combines INS based on micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) technology, with a miniaturized global positioning system (GPS) receiver for on-board navigation on ground robots, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs,) and other small systems. Additionally, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is seeking industry for ideas on digital technology to infantry squads in a program called Digitizing SQUAD X: Sensing, Communications, Mission Command, and Soldier-Worn Backbone. Additionally, the US Army researchers are developing new ways for soldiers to wear electronic devices that give information to the user such as wrist monitor.
Countries across the world are implementing extensive soldier modernization programs and have placed significant emphasis on the survivability component of soldier modernization. This focus on survivability has made it imperative for a large number of countries to procure man-portable military electronic systems for their armed forces. Moreover, most of these survivability programs are multi-year programs which ensures that the procurement of man-portable military electronics are carried out over a number of years and therefore, in the process have provided an impetus to the man-portable military electronics market. The major survivability-based soldier modernization programs of North America, which include the procurement of man-portable military electronics, are the acquisition of radios, hands-free display systems and smart phones. The Asia-Pacific survivability market is dominated by Australia's Land 125 Phase 3B program and India's procurement of survivability equipment for the F-INSAS program. In Europe the main contributor to the survivability-based soldier modernization equipment procurement is the UK's Future Infantry Soldier Technology (FIST) program, which includes several man-portable military electronics types in its ambit.

Future of the Canadian Defense Industry - Market Attractiveness, Competitive Landscape and Forecasts to 2018

Researchmoz presents this most up-to-date research on"Future of the Canadian Defense Industry - Market Attractiveness, Competitive Landscape and Forecasts to 2018".The report focuses primarily on quantitative market metrics in order to characterize the growth and evolution of the Remote Patient Monitoring Market.


Product Synopsis

This report is the result of SDI's extensive market and company research covering the Canadian defense industry, and provides detailed analysis of both historic and forecast defense industry values including key growth stimulators, analysis of the leading companies in the industry, and key news.

Introduction and Landscape

Why was the report written?

The Future of the Canadian Defense Industry - Market Attractiveness, Competitive Landscape and Forecasts to 2018 offers the reader an insight into the market opportunities and entry strategies adopted by foreign original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to gain market share in the Canadian defense industry.

What is the current market landscape and what is changing?

The Canadian defense budget, which is projected to be US$18.8 billion in 2014, is expected to dip at a CAGR of 1.17% during the forecast period and reach US$17.9 billion by 2018. Defense expenditure that amounted to 1% of GDP in 2013 is expected to fall to 0.8% by 2018 due to budget cuts. The downward slope is primarily due to the government's steps to curb its expenditure through restructuring of operations, efficiency enhancements, and erasing redundancy. Another contributing factor is the end of the Afghanistan war and withdrawal of troops from the region in 2014. 
The capital expenditure budget, which stood at an average of 17.3% in the review period, is expected to increase to 21.5% in the forecast period, due to the government's modernization plans. The HLS budget was US$348.0 million in 2009 and moved up to US$379.0 million in 2013, driven by increasing threats to cyber security, terrorist activity, and increased border security to combat illegal immigration. In the coming years, demand for equipment is mainly expected to revolve around fighters and multi-role aircrafts, armored personnel vehicles, corvettes, frigates, and UAVs.

What are the key drivers behind recent market changes?

Canada's defense expenditure primarily stands on the nation's military modernization goals set in 2008, targeted at the re-designing of the Canadian Army. Furthermore, the tussle with Russia over the sovereignty of the Arctic region also compels Canada to incur expenditure on its forces to protect its territory.

What makes this report unique and essential to read?

The Future of the Canadian Defense Industry - Market Attractiveness, Competitive Landscape and Forecasts to 2018 provides detailed analysis of the current industry size and growth expectations from 2014 to 2018, including highlights of key growth stimulators. It also benchmarks the industry against key global markets and provides a detailed understanding of emerging opportunities in specific areas.

Key Features and Benefits
  • The report provides detailed analysis of the current industry size and growth expectations from 2014 to 2018, including highlights of key growth stimulators, and also benchmarks the industry against key global markets and provides a detailed understanding of emerging opportunities in specific areas.
  • The report includes trend analysis of imports and exports, together with their implications and impact on the Canadian defense industry.
  • The report covers five forces analysis to identify various power centers in the industry and how these are expected to develop in the future.
  • The report allows readers to identify possible ways to enter the market, together with detailed descriptions of how existing companies have entered the market, including key contracts, alliances, and strategic initiatives.
  • The report helps the reader to understand the competitive landscape of the defense industry in Canada. It provides an overview of key defense companies, both domestic and foreign, together with insights such as key alliances, strategic initiatives, and a brief financial analysis.

Key Market Issues
  • Canadian IRBs, which define defense offsets, provide a timescale for the submission of offset plans. These timescales are generally short and, therefore, challenge defense companies to identify offsets and submit proposals. The offset policy also defines penalties for not submitting offset plans in time and the bidder is rejected if 30% of the offset proposal is not submitted with the bid. Of the remaining 70%, 30% of the offset obligation must be identified within one year from the date of awarding the contract, and the remaining 40% has to be identified within three years. If these timelines are not adhered to, foreign companies may face a penalty of additional IRB obligations equal to 50% of the unfulfilled amount. 
  • ITAR is a set of regulations defined by the US government to control the trade of defense-related technology. Under the regulations, Canadian companies are allowed to offer Canadian citizens access to sensitive technology under certain circumstances. However, an employee of a Canadian defense company that is a national of a restricted country cannot access the information, which leads to non-compliance with Canadian human rights as it constitutes discrimination based on an employee's nationality or place of origin. The US authorities have proposed an amendment to the existing regulation in August 2010.

Key Highlights
  • Canada's defense expenditure is driven by the demand for military equipment refurbishment. The government felt the need to equip the armed forces with advanced and better technology and, subsequently, in 2008, released the CFDS that outlines the restructuring of Canadian military bases. The CFDS has assigned 12% of its total budget for upgrades over a twenty-year period spanning across 2008 to 2027. The DND also remains committed to roll-out the National Shipbuilding Procurement Strategy that aims to elevate the country's naval fleet, which was neglected in the budget revision of 2005-2006. This would primarily involve the purchase of supply ships, frigates, and off-shore patrol vessels for the Arctic region. The air and land forces will also receive a facelift via new and more technologically superior fighter aircraft and armored vehicles coming in place of the ones lost or depleted during the operation in Afghanistan.
  • One of the biggest threats that Canada's vital infrastructure, including government data base, utilities, and communication and transportation systems, are facing is that of cyber attacks. These sectors, which were once physically protected, are now interconnected through cyber networks. However, Canada suffers from the absence of tough defense against cyber criminals and hackers from China and Russia. In 2011, the entire Treasury Board Secretariat had to be kept off-line for months as government computer infrastructure was badly attacked by dangerous malware. To fight against cyber intrusion, the federal authority has introduced Canada's Cyber Security Strategy that lists the government's measures to secure the cyberspace for all Canadians. Under this plan, the government started the Canadian Cyber Incident Response Centre (CCIRC) which functions collectively with national and international partners in determining, preventing, and negating cyber-attacks.
