The global electronic countermeasures market is likely to grow at a 5% CAGR between 2017- 2023, according to the new report by Market Research Future (MRFR). An electronic countermeasure or ECM, simply put, is an electronic or electrical device that has been specially designed to deceive or trick sonar, radar, or any other detection system such as lasers or infrared (IR). ECMs are used defensively and offensively to deny targeting an enemy with any information. It is effectively used for protecting aircraft from a guided missile.
The majority of the air forces use electronic countermeasures to protect their aircraft against attack. Besides, ECMs are also deployed by military ships as well as of late on some advanced tanks for fooling laser/IR guided missiles. Frequently this is coupled with that of stealth advances for the ECM system to have a simpler job. Airborne, naval, and ground-based are its different platforms, and its different technologies include gallium arsenide and gallium nitride. Owing to its alluring features and myriad benefits, electronic countermeasures have extensive applications in jamming (communication jamming, electronic jamming, and radar jamming), and deception.
Various factors are adding to the global electronic countermeasures market growth. According to the new MRFR report, such factors include high effectiveness, increasing use of electronics & associated equipment in weapon systems, implementation of electronic countermeasures expanding in variety, increased sophistication and capability, and superior characteristics of electronic warfare systems in the defense of a country which has turned into an essential element which can decide the result in the event of any conflict.
The MRFR report gives an inclusive segmental analysis of the global electronic countermeasures market report based on application, platform, and technology.
By application, the global electronic countermeasures market is segmented into jamming and deception. The jamming segment is again segmented into communication jamming, electronic jamming, and radar jamming.
By platform, the global electronic countermeasures market is segmented into airborne, naval, and ground-based.
