Spending growing to $3.3 billion by 2022

Boston, MA /PRNewswire/ -- Global spending on RF-based Electronic Warfare (EW) systems is forecast to grow to over $9.3 billion through 2022. The Strategy Analytics Advanced Defense Systems (ADS) service forecast model, "Airborne EW (EA) Systems and Components Forecast 2012-2022," predicts that a future emphasis shift back towards reestablishing airborne EW capabilities that can counter anti-access, area-denial systems will translate into spending on airborne EW systems accounting for over 35 percent of global spending on RF-based EW systems.

The renewed focus on Electronic Attack (EA) capabilities will provide opportunities for conventional platforms dedicated to EW capabilities, e.g. Boeing's EA-18G as well as other fast-jet and aircraft platforms.

This will be supplemented by the potential capabilities that fifth generation platforms such as the F-35 will bring, underpinned by systems such as the Next Generation Jammer (NGJ), as well as air-launched, podded and towed systems.

The analysis also forecasts increasing EW payload shipments on UAS platforms.

"The increasingly congested and complex spectrum environment will require capable EA systems that are able to operate across wider bandwidths to enable full protection of assets," noted Asif Anwar, Director of the ADS service. "This emphasis will translate to the associated market for components growing at a CAGR approaching 10 percent through 2022."

"The emphasis on delivering digital flexibility will drive demand for Digital Radio Frequency Memory (DRFM)-based jammers," observed Eric Higham, North American Director for ADS."The need to provide wide bandwidth and high power will enable the GaN semiconductor opportunity to grow at a CAGR of over 45 percent."
