C4ISR Market by Solution, Platform, Application, End-user, Installation and Region - Global Forecast to 2026 -

August 31, 2021 GMT

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 31, 2021--

The “C4ISR Market by Solution (Hardware, Application Software & Services), Platform (Airborne, Land, Naval, Space), Application, End User (Defence & Space, Homeland Security, Commercial), Installation, and Region - Forecast to 2026” report has been added to’s offering.

The C4ISR market is projected to grow from USD 119.9 billion in 2021 to USD 147.1 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 4.2% from 2021 to 2026.

The services segment of the market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during 2021-2026.


The demand for enhance armored forces operational efficiency, increasing need to support life extension programs of C4ISR systems and increasing use of augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) in battle management and planning in turn driving the growth of C4ISR market.

Based on application, the Intelligence, Surveillance & Reconnaissance (ISR) segment of application is expected to lead the C4ISR market from 2021 to 2026.

Over the past few years, there has been an explosion of activity in the advancement of ISR technology for mission critical data. In September 2020, Lockheed Martin develops signals intelligence capabilities for the Distributed Common Ground System, the Air Force’s intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) system by using agile development.

The North America region is estimated to account for the largest share of C4ISR market in 2021.

Based on region, North America is expected to lead the C4ISR market from 2021 to 2026. The US is the largest market share for C4ISR in North America. The increasing investment on C4ISR systems to enhance defense and surveillance capabilities of the armed forces, modernization existing military platforms, critical infrastructure and law enforcement agencies are increasingly using C4ISR systems are key factors expected to drive the C4ISR market in North America.

Prominent players from this region include Northrop Grumman (US), Raytheon Technologies(US), Lockheed Martin (US), and others.
