Global Active Protection System Market is valued at USD 4027.1 Million in 2020 and expected to reach USD 6095.4 Million by 2027 with a CAGR of 6.1% over the forecast period.
Global Active Protection System Market: Global Size, Trends, Competitive, Historical & Forecast Analysis to 2021-2027, Increasing need of security systems from different types of weapons, rising demand for ground defense system and supportive government initiatives for improvement of defense system are major factors anticipated to drive the growth of Global Active Protection System Market.
Active protection systems, or APS, are an advancement that can be installed on high tier vehicles in armored warfare. These protection systems are built in a way to protect incoming missiles by either distracting them away or ending them completely. Hard kill and soft kill systems are the two types of APS in armored warfare. Active protection system prevents the competitor’s projectile to destroy a target and to complicate the enemy’s projectiles. Many different types of active protection systems are used by the armies worldwide. The active protection system provides team and vehicle protection using an intertwined multi-mission fire- control radar and counter-measure system that detects tracks and destroys multiple incoming pitfalls. Radar technology was used in it which provides timely warning of rocket and mortar attacks. Active protection system is used for the protection of armored fighting vehicles, infantry fighting vehicles; it also used to detect hostile fire threats. The advance modular design, independent sensing designs and miss to kill technology are providing applications in various projects.
The Covid-19 pandemic has shown a negative impact on the growth of global active protection system market. Due to imposed-lockdown, supply chain network of active protection system development is paused and there was less demand of defense equipment. It also halted the APS production due to the decreased defense spending on it.
The global active protection system market is segmented on the basis of type, platform, application and region & country level. On the basis of type, the market is segmented into hard-kill systems and soft-kill systems and reactive armour. The hard kill systems is further subdivided into electro-optics jammers, radar decoy, infrared decoy and others. The soft kill systems are further subdivided into rocket/missile based light weapon defence, directed energy and others. On the basis of platform, the global active protection system market is classified into land and naval and airborne. The land platform further segmented into main battle tanks, light protected vehicles (LPVS), amphibious armoured vehicles (AAVS), mine-resistant ambush protected (MRAP), infantry fighting vehicles (AFVS), armoured personnel carriers (APCS) and others. The naval platform is further segmented into submarines, frigates, destroyers, aircraft carriers and others. The airborne segment is further subdivided into helicopters, fighter aircraft, special mission aircraft and others. On the basis of application, the global active protection market is segmented into air defence and homeland security.
Some of the key players for global active protection system market are
On February 22nd, 2021; An agreement was signed by Germany with Israel to get the Trophy active protection system (APS) for its Leopard 2A7 Main Battle Tanks (MBTs). The installation and integration of the system into the tank are to be administered by Kraus-Maffei Wegmann (KMW), the Leopard’s manufacturer. It was latest generation of main battle tank. New armor, an energy system is the most features of this new upgrade of the Leopard 2 tank. Tank Battalion203 produced 14 vehicles plus four more getting to the Armored Corps Training Centre and one vehicle at the tech for Land Systems and faculty for Technology of the military. In October 2019, the primary Leopard 2A7 main battle tanks were delivered to the German and Danish soldiers by KMW.
One of the major factors driving the growth of the market is increasing need security systems from different types of weapons. As active protection system’s weapons composed of threat detection signal processing systems, counter measures systems and base armor, tracking systems used for structural and residual threat defeat. A variety of sensors including radar, IR and laser detection systems are employed on board the vehicle to supply the potential of detecting and tracking multiple munitions and directed-energy weapon threats thus boosting the market of active protection system market. They treat projectile automatically detected by APS before reaching to the target.
Active protection systems design protective fields around the vehicle through which RPGs are guided missiles cannot be attacked and they also do not add weight on vehicle. Thus, need for such technologies are fueling market growth. For example; on 5thApril 2020, PULAT Active Protection System introduced by Turkish defense industry, PULAT detects the anti-tank missiles or rockets approaching to the platform with its high technology radar, and it inactivates them at optimum range from the platform by using Hard-Kill method.
In addition to that, rising demand for ground defense system is also anticipated to foster the market as active protection systems are used to handle multiple threats effectively. An active protection system is a framework anticipated to avoid anti-tank missiles/projectiles from obtaining as well as destroying an objective. They detect the sensor launch, maps controller activates different armored vehicles by altering its modular and distributed system solution after that countermeasure and engage the missile and missile is diverted. It is widely used in defense systems. For instance; as per the news published on 16th April 2021, the Indian Army (IA) has welcomed reactions from local merchants by 12 May in regards to the stockpile of 818 modular active protection systems (APSs) to upgrade the survivability of its T-90S/SK Bhishma key battle tanks (MBTs).
Furthermore, supportive government initiatives for the improvement of defense system is further augmenting the growth of the market. As nation’s security is the most important responsibility of the government. Therefore increasing government spending and growing demand of active protection system in the defence sector are also augmenting the market growth. For example; according to National Investment Promotion and Facilitation Agency, the global military spending of India is 3.7% and India is third highest military spender in the world, approximately $72.9 billion spent on defence in 2020.
However, high cost for installation of active protection system may hamper the growth of the global active protection system market. In spite of that, rising government initiatives for the improvement of defense systems may provide some opportunities for the further growth of the global active protection system market.
North America is expected to dominate the global active protection system due to the increasing improvement of advanced technology-based designs of combat systems, presence of key players and supportive government initiatives for securities in this region. The active protection system is used by the U.S. army to organize non-breakable vehicles with advanced protective technologies more proficient than just passive armor which is augmenting the growth of the market. For example; TROPHY was developed by the Israeli firm Rafael and is represented in the United States by Leonardo DRS. TROPHY was being accelerated to requirement of the aboard the M1A2 Abrams main battle tank.
In addition to those, supportive government initiatives to develop a strong defense is adding growth to the market. For instance; the US army signed an agreement with General Dynamics in September 2017, which was associated to the setting up of the Trophy system on new and existing combat vehicles of the US Army.
Asia-pacific is expected to witness a fastest growth in the global active protection systems due to the increasing innovation of existing fleets, and adoption of naval and land platforms in this region. The emerging economies like India and China use widely active protection systems widely in the army. For example; on February 26th, 2021; Defense Acquisition Council of India decided to Active Protection measures for 3000 Indian tanks and other armored vehicle. These initiatives further boost the market.
Moreover, China has developed The GL5 Active Protection System by NORINCO it was designed for main battle tanks and infantry fighting vehicles and it can destroy all non-kinetic-energy weapons before they touch vehicles. Thus, developments and research in the active protection systems further augmenting the growth in Asia-Pacific region.
