The special mission aircraft market size is estimated to grow from USD 10.49 Billion in 2015 to USD 12.49 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 3.5% from 2015 to 2020. Special mission aircraft are used to support and enhance the effectiveness of air, naval, and ground forces engaged in combat operations as well as non-combat operations against the enemy. Increase in terrorist threats and global military missions are the key factors driving this market. The growing need to secure coasts and borders against asymmetric threats (piracy, drug trafficking, terrorist attacks) provides an opportunity for market. These aircraft have capabilities in areas such as maritime patrol as well as anti-submarine and airborne early warning and control. They also offer the versatility to undertake both military and non-military missions. Indonesia’s acquisition of the maritime patrol and surveillance version of the CASA/IPTN CN235 is one such example. The report aims at estimating the market size and future growth potential of market across different segments such as operation, application, and region. The base year considered for the study is 2014 and the market size is forecasted from 2015 to 2020.

The research methodology used to estimate and forecast the special mission aircraft market begins with capturing data on key vendor revenues through secondary research. The vendor offerings are also taken into consideration to determine the market segmentation. The bottom-up procedure was employed to arrive at the overall market size of the global market from the revenue of key market players. After arriving at the overall market size, the total market was split into several segments and subsegments which were then verified through primary research by conducting extensive interviews with key people such as CEOs, VPs, directors, and executives. This data triangulation and market breakdown procedures were employed to complete the overall market engineering process and arrive at the exact statistics for all segments and subsegments. The breakdown of profiles of primary is depicted in the below figure:

The global special mission aircraft market is projected to grow from USD 10.49 Billion in 2015 to USD 12.49 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 3.5% from 2015 to 2020. Economic development and geopolitical instability in varied regions has resulted in increasing the defense spending in order to modernize defense mechanisms to protect borders from external as well as internal threats. This is expected to fuel the growth of the market in the coming years. The demand for special mission aircraft is anticipated to be driven further by territorial disputes, internal as well external security threats, and modernization initiatives undertaken by governments across the globe.

The scope of this report covers the special mission aircraft market by application, operation, and region. By application, the intelligence surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) segment accounted for the largest share in 2015, and is expected to lead the market from 2015 to 2020. This growth is mainly attributed to the increasing use of ISR to discover marine oil spills as well as assess the location, extent, and severity of spills.

In terms of operation, the air force segment accounted for the largest share of the global special mission aircraft market in 2015, followed by the naval and army segments. The U.S. Air Force is the most powerful airforce worldwide that holds approximately 757 special mission aircraft, followed by Japan, China, Russia, and India. Japan and China accounted for 132 and 131 special mission aircrafts, respectively.

Special Mission Aircraft Market

Among all regions, North America accounted for the largest share of the global special mission aircraft market. This growth is mainly propelled by the high dependence of the U.S. military forces on its airborne assets in order to perform a wide range of missions. Rising insurgencies are further driving the market, especially in the Asia-Pacific, Africa, and the Middle East regions. There are several opportunities for new entrants in the emerging economies of China, India, UAE, and Israel. However, decrease in defense budget of the American and European countries acts as a restraining factor for the global market.

Major players operating in the global special mission aircraft market include Boeing (U.S.), Bombardier Inc. (Canada), Northrop Grumman Corporation (U.S.), Lockheed Martin Corporation (U.S.), and Israel Aerospace Industries Ltd. (Israel), among others.
