The C4I market direction will be driven by contemporary defense concerns such as cyberspace and the progressive mainstreaming of new innovations in technology. While older systems are receiving sustainment services, manufacturers are also working on the next generation of systems. Forecast International projects the C4I market to be worth at least $75.926 billion over the 2019-2028 timeframe.
Nations the world over face an evolving array of cyber-based threats arising from a variety of sources. Without a doubt, the one C4I market segment that stands out with signs of explosive growth is cybersecurity.
Forecast International’s projections are the result of a review and analysis of over 200 leading C4I programs. Based on the results of FI’s modeling, the top defense companies in the global C4I market are Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Saab AB, and Harris.
As more and more network breaches occur with data stolen or corrupted – and the realization that the system has been compromised for quite some time, one can expect an ever-increasing amount of funding to be pumped into cyberspace – specifically cybersecurity – across a wide spectrum of countries.
