Impact of COVID-19:

Delayed APS deliveries to prevent market during coronavirus

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a dramatic impact on the defense industry. The lockdowns implemented in countries across Europe and South Asia have massively disrupted the supply chain for the aerospace and defense industry. Reduced demand and delayed deliveries of APS have led to a huge loss for the active protection system market.

For example, the Republic of Korea Armed Forces planned to cut the defense budget by $240 million in 2019-20. In addition, the demand for defense equipment and services related to active protection systems has been massively affected due to the low defense budget of the European Union. Additionally, declining defense spending and slow production of APS has thwarted market growth.

Driving factor:

Acquisition of a state-of-the-art Main Battle Tank (MBT) to facilitate business development

The expansion of the armed forces due to geopolitical conflicts and illegal cross-border activities will create opportunities for the active protection systems industry in the coming years. For example, China and India have expanded their armed forces due to cross-border conflicts.

Rising defense spending and purchase of new generation main battle tanks will drive the market in the coming years. For example, in February 2021, the Indian Ministry of Defense and the Ordnance Factory Board (OFB) signed a contract to supply 118 Arjun Mk-1A tanks to the Indian Army. These tanks are equipped with active protection systems and countermeasure systems.

Similarly, in November 2019, the Indian Ministry of Defense (MoD) and the Ordnance Factory Board (OFB) signed a contract worth USD 2,800 million to offer 464 T-90S Main Battle Tanks (MBTs) additions to the Indian Army. T-90S main battle tanks are also equipped with APS. Additionally, increasing purchases of MBT in South Asian countries may have an exceptional effect on the growth of active protection system market.

Regional overview:

Existing players to boost business in North America

The North America market size stood at USD 0.95 billion in 2020. The growth is due to the presence of several key players and major APS manufacturers in the region. Companies such as Artis, LLC and Raytheon Technologies Corporation are driving the growth of the market. The market in Europe is expected to grow exponentially over the forecast period owing to the growing demand for APS from the European Union Armed Forces.

For example, in October 2019, BAE Systems launched the RAVEN Countermeasure system for combat vehicles. The RAVEN Countermeasure system is a protective shield of its suite of integrated vehicle protection systems of APS products. Asia-Pacific is expected to hold a major active protection system market share during the forecast period owing to the increase in purchases of APS system from China. In addition, the strong demand for main battle tanks, armored personnel carriers, infantry fighting vehicles and amphibious armored vehicles from emerging economies like China and India will contribute to the development of the region. .
