Military Computers Market.
Advanced military computer market is expected to reach USD 2986.0 Million by 2024 at a CAGR of 6.40% during the forecast period.
Military computers are rugged computers that are either portable or mounted on armored vehicles. They are more robust and advanced than industrial/commercial computers. Most of the electronics in a military computer are protected by a layer of conformal coating to make them suitable for rugged military use. The various components, such as plug-in cards, are individually supported and secured to ensure stability.
The Global Advanced military computer market has been segmented based on type and platform.
By type, the global military computer market has been classified as rugged computers and embedded computers. The rugged computer segment is projected to dominate the market with a valuation of USD 1,284.7 million in 2018 and reach USD 1,940.9 Million by 2024. Rugged computers are designed to operate in harsh climatic conditions and environments. These systems offer features such as high-definition (HD) graphics, Ethernet connectivity, USB interface, and Wi-Fi connectivity. Rugged computers enable military personnel to view and share crucial information from remote areas. The embedded computer segment is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 5.51% during the forecast period.
Based on the platform, the global military computer market has been divided into ground, airborne, and naval. The ground segment is expected to lead the market with a value of USD 1,016.9 million in 2018 and reach USD 1,410.0 Million by 2024. Military computers offer benefits to army personnel such as battlefield connectivity and the Internet of Things (IoT) on tablets that enable users to view and share data from remote areas. Additionally, these systems are portable and operate in harsh climatic conditions. The airborne segment is expected to register a 7.27% CAGR during the forecast period.
