Global Airborne Maritime Surveillance Aircraft Market, Forecast to 2026

Global Airborne Maritime Surveillance Aircraft Market, Forecast to 2026

Geopolitical and economic factors such as territorial expansionism, security of Sea Lanes of Communications (SLOC)/offshore energy assets, expanding surface and submarine fleets, non-state actor-led to conflict, and the associated displacement of population mandate the need to increase maritime awareness and interdiction capabilities and to keep the airborne maritime surveillance buoyant. The maritime surveillance market is currently in an upward cycle due to the US Navy’s P-8 procurement program that has annual spends of approximately $2 billion, and recent sales of P-8 into Australia, Norway, and the United Kingdom.

Operators are also developing different approaches to the concepts of maritime patrol and surveillance through man-unmanned teaming (MUM-T), off-board integration of sensors, and multi-mission emphasis through roll-on/roll-off capabilities. Several nations are moving towards an integrated EEZ approach based on a layered surveillance architecture and multi-source surveillance assets such as satellites, surface fleets, UAVs, MPAs, MSAs, underwater combatants etc. belonging to multiple authorities. This Concept of Operations may reduce the need to field a large MPA/MSA fleet in the long run and may have a negative impact on the market (although this is not expected to be a deciding factor during the forecast period).

Through this research, Frost & Sullivan provides an assessment of airborne maritime surveillance programs, opportunities, forecasts, technology trends, and also a country wise assessment of capability analysis, opportunities, and future maritime surveillance aircraft acquisition plans.
The study covers the global market for fixed-wing Maritime Patrol and Maritime Surveillance aircraft. It lists key aircrafts fielded by different countries based on their mission types and traces their replacement timelines and upgrade evolution. The study does not cover Unmanned Air Systems (UAS) or Rotary Wing. The market is broken down by committed, planned, and forecasted revenues.
