09 November 2020

Aerostat Systems Market Report: Forecasts by Type (Balloon, Airship, Hybrid), by Propulsion (Powered Aerostats, Unpowered Aerostats), by Size (Small, Medium, Large), by Payload (Surveillance Radar, Inertial Navigation Systems, Camera, Communication Systems, Electro-Optic/Infrared Sensor, Electronic Intelligence) AND Regional and Leading National Market Analysis PLUS Analysis of Leading Companies AND COVID-19 Recovery Scenarios.

Global Aerostat Systems market was valued at US$ xx billion in 2021 and is projected to reach at a market value of US$ xx billion by 2031. The growth of this market can be attributed to growing need for surveillance capabilities across remote areas, persistent surveillance for a longer duration and testing of Aerostat systems in various military applications. The need for enhanced situational awareness across remote areas is growing and is one of the major factors attributing to the growth of aerostat systems. In addition to this, deployment of aerostat system for carrying repeaters, radio communication devices, to set up emergency communication in remote areas is also anticipated to propel the aerostat systems market. Aerostat systems have been traditionally used for ISR applications and for other military applications such as communications relay, atmosphere testing and radio frequency jamming. With such capabilities it is expected that the aerostat system may grow during the forecast period 2021-2031.

Aerostat systems have the capability to provide persistent surveillance for longer durations. These systems offer enhanced performance with a low operational cost, and minimal maintenance. In addition to this, these systems can be integrated with IMSI Modules and long range EO/IR cameras to enable round the clock coastal security. With such capabilities, it is anticipated that the demand for aerostat systems may grow during the forecast period.
