Missile Decoy Systems Market

Missile Decoys are the airborne projectiles used to counter enemy missiles to safeguard military assets like Inter Continental Ballistic Missiles, ships, aircraft etc. The missile decoys replicate electronic and infrared signatures to mislead the enemy missiles and effectively deviate their proposed path to secure airborne, sea-borne, and land-based platforms.
Additionally, the need for advanced countermeasures is increasing due to the growing importance of precision-guided missiles and their ability to target critical infrastructure and military assets. Hence, to secure the airborne systems, various militaries around the globe have planned to integrate missile decoy systems to secure their assets in hostile environments.

Market Segmentation

Insight by Function

On the basis of Function, the global Missile Decoy Systems market is segregated into Infrared Decoy Systems, Radar Decoy Systems, Laser Decoy Systems, Electronic Warfare Decoy Systems, Other Decoy Systems (Acoustic, Visual, etc.). Radar Decoy Systems segment shall dominate the global Missile Decoy Systems Market. With the growing advancements of radars, the usage of multiple radio frequencies for effectively engaging enemy aircraft has extensively grown. A large number of aerial threats are equipped with radar-based sensors for targeting & detection, as radar offers a long stand-off range to the strike missiles.

Insight by Platform Type

Based on platform, the global Missile Decoy Systems Market is segregated into Airborne Decoy Systems, Naval Decoy Systems and Ground-based Decoy Systems. Airborne platform shall dominate the Global Missile Decoy Systems Market during the forecast period. Improved survivability is at the center of focus with the emergence of 4.5 and 5th-generation aircraft. A large number of aircraft such as Eurofighter Typhoon, F35, Rafael, etc. use active missile decoys to ensure survivability in the increased threat scenarios. The demand for advanced military fighter jets and other equipment is rising substantially, as airborne threats, such as enemy aircraft, drones, and cruise missiles, can easily approach targets from long distances. This is anticipated to further boost the demand for enhanced missile decoy systems from airborne platforms across the world.

Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers 

The Missile Decoy Integration is promoted due to increasing military focus towards anti-aircraft systems. Various countermeasures have also been devised by the countries which include effective, quick response and highly mobile surface-to-air missiles with the advancement of aircraft technology towards modern electronic warfare systems, radar absorbent materials, avionics, supercruise, etc. Various countries have focused on installing active missile decoys on board to deceive enemy missiles through the simulation of heat, radar and electronic signatures of the aircrafts as militaries require operations in diverse threat environment securing a high-value, fighter jet which has become a priority. Furthermore, the demand for installing missile decoys to cope with the new age anti-aircraft missiles has extensively grown with the large number of 4th generation and 5th generation aircraft at the disposal of air forces around the world. Therefore, integrating missile decoys has become a cost-effective solution for operating aircraft, as upgrading and advancing onboard systems demand substantial investments to create a strong electronic warfare system. Further, the advantages of cruise missile decoys such as versatility, cost-effectiveness and adaptability are some of the aspects that shall propel their adoption among global economies for enhanced security in the upcoming years.

Restraints 

Because of geopolitics & cost constraints, increasing international sanctions shall hinder the market growth of missile decoy systems. Long-range missile capabilities have become more accessible to both state and non-state actors with the evolving landscape of modern warfare, posing a significant threat to military assets and civilian populations. Limitations on the supply of defense equipment around the globe due to the imposition of trade sanctions in Russia, Ukraine, etc., have widely restricted access to advanced technologies and components, thereby hindering the development and procurement of sophisticated defense systems like missile decoys. Furthermore, due to sanctions countries that are under financial crunch, opt for more cost-effective defense solutions of advanced technologies such as missile decoy systems. Hence, the restricted access to technology and limited financial resources hamper the demand for missile decoy systems across the world.
