The aerospace and military fiber optic market is projected to reach US$ 7,208.36 million by 2028 from US$ 4,623.81 million in 2021; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.0% from 2022 to 2028.

A fiber optic cable is a bundle of optical threads with a diameter (single thread) larger than the diameter of a human hair strand; each of these threads may transfer data encoded as light waves. Fiber optics are replacing metal optics in aerospace and military applications due to their ability to withstand severe environments. The use of fiber optic in data transmission enables the transmission over a long distance, confers immunity to electromagnetic interference, and supports high bandwidth with high rates of speed and no data loss. Fiber-optic cables are lighter and smaller than metal cables and safer for vulnerable activities. The demand for fiber optics in aerospace and military communications is increasing due to efficient flight management systems, communication systems, in-flight entertainment systems, electronic warfare avionics, cabin interiors, and radar systems. The increasing demand for higher bandwidth, reliability, and airframes in new and upgraded aircraft boosts the aerospace and military fiber optic market growth.

According to a recent study from the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), it is expected that passenger and freight traffic is likely to double by 2035. The number of air travelers is increasing with the rising middle-class disposable income and elevated operations and popularity of low-cost airlines. As the number of passengers grows in major countries such as Canada, the US, Brazil, Indonesia, the Philippines, China, Saudi Arabia, and India, the number of commercial aircraft deliveries also spikes. A rise in commercial aircraft deliveries with advanced integrated solutions adds to the demand for fiber optics. According to the Bureau of Transportation, the US airlines reported a significant rise in passenger count from October 2020. A consequent rise in the shift toward the edge of communication, radar, and navigation systems to ensure streamlined airline operations further boosts the growth of the aerospace and military fiber optic market

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Aerospace and Military Fiber Optic Market Size

The COVID-19 pandemic substantially hampered industries in Europe. The COVID-19 pandemic triggered unprecedented policy responses across European countries that hit the region’s economic growth during the Q2 and Q3 of the outbreak. This further resulted in disruptions in multiple supply chains across various European industries due to lockdowns imposed by the European Union (EU) members to curb the outbreak.

The European military was hit hard by the high number of COVID-19 cases in the region from 2020 to 2021. The COVID-19 pandemic also triggered a drop in the demand for military equipment, resulting in reduced production, and negatively impacted European military infrastructure growth. However, in contrast to the factors mentioned above, the European aerospace and military fiber optic market players managed to acquire aerospace and fiber optics contracts from various military forces worldwide. This enabled the market players to generate revenues and contribute to the market growth. Thus, the revenue generated in 2020 was comparatively less than in 2019.
