The aircraft radome manufacturing industry consists of large numbers of well-established and well recognized companies such as General Dynamics Corporation, Jenoptik, Airbus, Orbitall ATK, and Meggitt PLC among others. The existing radome manufacturers acquire the most of the contracts from the major aircraft manufacturers, which limits the entrance for new companies to enter the industry. Owing to these, the threats to new entrants in the aircraft radome market, is all time low. The capital investments involved in setting up a new aircraft component manufacturing company incurs huge costs, which is a major concern for the new entrants in the industry.

Aircraft Radome Market Overview

The radome is a covered structural component of an aircraft, safeguarding the antenna from different environmental parameters, as well as external factors such as bird strike, lightning strike. At the same time, radome increases the stealthy feature of the aircraft. These are achieved by manufacturing the radome with high end composite materials and advanced technology. The maintenance of high end composites and advanced technology in order to increase the operational efficiency of the radome requires highly skilled engineering labor. The lack of skilled engineering labor in different parts of the world is limiting the aircraft manufacturers to adopt the technologically advanced radome, thus, inhibiting the growth of the market for aircraft radome over the period.
