Top 9 Vendors in the Global Military Mobile Computing Systems Market from 2016 to 2020: Technavio

LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top nine leading vendors in their recent global military mobile computing systems market report. The report provides a comprehensive overview of the market, market shares and growth opportunities by systems (radio, computers, personal computer [PC] or laptops, and smart devices), and growth prospects by region (the Americas, EMEA, and APAC).

Military mobile computing systems include electronic systems and devices that are used for the transmission of real-time data and reception of video, voice, and data signals essential in defense operations. The facilitation of communication has become an effective means for defense authorities to enhance the capabilities of their units in harsh environments. Also, the defense industry is embracing new mobile computing system technologies and shifting to a new generation of sophisticated systems that enable faster, secure, cost-effective, and more flexible communication.

The Americas was the largest segment of the global military mobile computing systems market in 2015, accounting for a share of 49.17%, followed by EMEA with a share of 29.72%, and APAC with a share of 21.11%.

Competitive vendor landscape

Manufacturers of ruggedized computers hold strong support from military systems designers. However, strong competition in the market has motivated manufacturers to keep up with the rapidly changing evolution of COTS components, while customizing their computers to match specific demands for cost, weight, power, and ruggedness.

BAE Systems and Rockwell Collins are the two leading vendors in the market. Their focus is primarily on the implementation of lightweight materials, more electric technologies, and robust systems,” says Moutushi Saha, a lead defense analyst from Technavio.

Mergers and acquisitions, along with increased collaboration with alliance partners around the world, would drive the global military communication market during the forecast period. In 2015, Data Link Solutions (DLS) was formed, as a result of the joint venture (JV) of BAE Systems and Rockwell Collins to provide support to the military assets globally. The JV would enhance the company's position in the market and enable direct access to the local customers.
