The Global Airborne Telemetry Market is projected to reach USD 13.30 Billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 4.2% during the forecast period.

Global Airborne Telemetry Market

Telemetry is the measurement and transmission of data from remote sources. Sensors measure physical data or electrical data that are converted into specific electrical voltages. Multiplexers combine these voltages with timing data into a single data stream for transmission to a remote receiver. At the reception, the data stream is separated into its original components and the data is displayed and processed according to user specifications. In military and commercial applications, such as space exploration, rocketry, and flight testing, airborne telemetry is used to allow real-time surveillance of flying object environmental circumstances. Increasing the use of telemetry in military applications, such as intercepted telemetry in guided missiles, land systems, armored vehicles, aircraft, marine vessels and UAVs, is anticipated to increase telemetry demand over the forecast period. Additionally, an increase in defense spending due to various security threats imposed both externally and internally, increasing terrorist threats, the increasing interest of some nations toward world dominance, several border security issues, and volatile relations among nations are factors expected to support the growth of the concerned market. Different factors, such as the increasing use of software-defined radio technology, the emergence of modern electronic warfare and network-centered warfare systems, and the enhanced use of wireless and cloud computing technologies are anticipated to boost this market's development.

Based on technology, the airborne telemetry market is segmented into wired and wireless. Among these, the wireless segment is expected to have the highest demand during the forecast period. This is because wireless telemetry is majorly utilized in communication between air traffic control towers and passenger aircraft. Also for commercial and military flight test missions, satellite telemetry is essential. These devices assist to monitor the information gathered through an RF connection from onboard instrumentation. Real-time data, as well as analysis of the data, has been proved to be crucial for the safety of the test pilots, and this requires a reliable high throughput link. Satellite communication is expected to witness a significant increase, primarily due to the growth in the usage of smart weapons as well as unmanned aerial vehicles. Also, missions, such as the launch of 104 satellites inside a single rocket by ISRO (India), will likely boost the satellite telemetry market's growth during the forecast period.

Global Airborne Telemetry Market

Based on the platform, the airborne telemetry market has been segmented into fixed-wing, parachute, rotary-wing, and unmanned aerial vehicles. Fixed-wing is expected to account for a dominating share in the airborne telemetry market. It is anticipated that the increase in air passenger traffic will boost the number of new aircraft deliveries, which is expected to drive growth in airborne telemetry systems.

Based on sensor type, the airborne telemetry market has been segmented into a load cell, GPS, torque, weather prediction, and others. The load cell segment is expected to show the highest growth, as load cell sensors are highly precise and possess long operating life and excellent fatigue characteristics as compared to other types of sensors. Rising orders for aircraft will contribute considerably to the growing demand for load cell sensors.

Currently, North America dominates the airborne telemetry market, primarily due to high investment in the military and space sectors. However, the growth of the Middle East and Asia-Pacific is expected to be higher during the forecast period. Political tensions between Gulf countries have forced them to increase their defense spending for equipment modernization. Saudi Arabia, Israel, the United Arab Emirates, and Qatar are revamping their commercial as well as military aviation sector. The demand for unmanned aerial vehicles is also high in the region. Such developments are likely to create demand for the region's telemetry system. Emerging economies in Asia-Pacific, like India, China, and Japan are investing huge amounts in modernizing their armed forces. The modernization programs are further boosted by the increased defense spending from these countries, which collectively, has a positive impact on the growth of the market. Also, the increase in disposable income of the population in emerging economies in Asia-Pacific has resulted in rising in the air passenger traffic. This has also resulted in increased deliveries of aircraft in the region, which has contributed to the increasing demand for airborne telemetry systems in the region.

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • Increase in global air traffic
  • Increase in defense expenditure and military modernization by emerging economies
  • Increased research and growth of modern airborne telemetry
  • The emergence of modern electronic warfare and network-centered warfare systems
  • Enhanced use of wireless and cloud computing technologies

Key Developments:

  • In July 2018, BAE Systems (UK) and Goonhilly Earth Station (UK) signed a Memorandum of Understanding to provide GES with two Tracking Systems, Telemetry and Command Processor (TTCP). The technology will allow GES to communicate and track a wide range of spacecraft, including future manned and robotic missions to the Moon and Mars.
  • In February 2018, Orbit Technologies (Israel) a leading supplier of precision tracking-based communications solutions and airborne communications management systems has announced that an aeronautical telemetry system has been ordered by the Asian Ministry of Defense (MoD) for about US$ 5 million.
