Lockheed Martin (US) and Raytheon Company (US) are the Leading Player in the C4ISR Market

The Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance & Reconnaissance (C4ISR) market is estimated at USD 100.25 Billion in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 119.39 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 3.56% from 2017 to 2022. C4ISR systems offer tactical communications that provide ground access to a global information grid of shared data and information sources. These systems utilize radio networks to transmit Intelligence, Surveillance & Reconnaissance (ISR) data by using various communication systems. The data is analyzed for identification of threats. Thus, C4ISR systems are important to ensure the survivability of land, naval, airborne, and space defense units. New generation C4ISR systems have cyber defense capabilities to ensure information security and protection from cyber-attacks.

New developments in C4ISR systems include the incorporation of combat systems for increased situational awareness. The combat systems improve data sharing capabilities between various armed forces. Other developments include emergence of highly secure communication and networking technologies enabling tactical data exchange.

The report profiles the key players in the C4ISR market, such as Lockheed Martin (US), Raytheon Company (US), Rockwell Collins, Inc. (US), BAE Systems (UK), Northrop Grumman (US), Elbit Systems (Israel), Leonardo (Italy), and Thales (France), among others. These market players have been focusing on securing contracts to ensure organic growth in the market. These companies adopted various growth strategies, such as new product launches and contracts, to capture a majority share in the growing C4ISR market. The core competencies of these market players include their widespread geographical presence and increased investments in R&D activities.

Lockheed Martin Corporation (US) is the leading player in the C4ISR market.
