Publication Month: Dec 2020 | Report Code: TIPAD00002135 | No. of Pages: 160 | Category: Aerospace and Defense | Status: Published

[Research Report] The automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast market was valued at US$ 815.92 million in 2019 and is projected to reach US$ 3020.20 million by 2027; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 18.3% from 2020 to 2027.

Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) is a surveillance technique that does not require any external stimulus. Aircraft use the automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast (ADS-B) technique to broadcast information about their position and identity, along with other information obtained from onboard systems, such as Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS). ADS-B exhibits features such as high performance, environmental sustainability, increased capacity, global interoperability, and improved safety. Additionally, ADS-B surveillance infrastructure is cheaper than primary radar technology.
All the aircraft operating in most of the US airspace are advised to transmit specific information through ADS-B OUT avionics. This mandate was brought in effect from January 1, 2020. Australia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Vietnam, India, and the UAE are the other countries having such mandates regarding the adoption of ADS-B. With increasing domestic and international air traffic, need to have ADS-B is becoming popular; therefore, countries such as New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, Mangolia, Canada, and South Africa are also introducing such mandates. Further, the increasing number of aircraft orders and deliveries across the world and rising investments in the upgrading of commercial airports with advanced facilities and technologies is instrumental in boosting the adoption of ADS-B. Moreover, the emergence of portable ADS-B that save cost of manufacturing and installing the standard ADS-B is expected to contribute the market growth in the coming years.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast Market

The recent COVID-19 outbreak has significantly affected the world. Until the outbreak, the aerospace industry was experiencing substantial growth in terms of production, despite huge backlogs from the aircraft manufacturers; the global industry witnessed a significant rise in the number of passenger counts, an increase in aircraft procurement (both commercial and military). Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic has affected the demand for aircraft globally, which resulted in significantly lower volumes of orders among the aircraft manufacturers. The decline in production volumes adversely affected the businesses of various component manufacturers and associated technologies, including automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast products. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the entire commercial aviation industry came to halt, with the availability of minimal resources. The measures taken by governments and airline companies to temporarily shut down their businesses have severely affected the entire aviation aftermarket, thereby adversely impacting the procurement of new ADS-B components. This factor has also reduced the demand for ADS-B component.

Deployment of ADS-B in Military Applications Fuels Growth of Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast Market

The scope of ADS-B to ensure the precise tracking of aircraft is expanding. With continuous technological developments, the integration of ADS-B among military aircraft is on rise. According to the US Air Force, the Pentagon is projected to have 2,936 aircraft equipped with ADS-B Out, guided by the FAA-mandate. By 2025, the US Department of Defense (DoD) aims to have ~62% of their aircraft equipped with ADS-B Out—including 67% of helicopters; 35% of fighter aircraft; and 100% of mobility, trainer aircraft, command and control/intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C2/ISR). As per the US Air Force, ~1,129 helicopters, 259 C2/ISR aircraft, 923 mobility aircraft, and 625 trainers are expected to be equipped with ADS-B. In DoD, the aircraft that are subjected to receive ADS-B Out includes Boeing C-17 Globemasters, Lockheed Martin UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters, Lockheed Martin C-130, and C-5 transports. Such massive expansion of ADS-B applications in military aviation fuels the growth of the automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast market.
