Technavio’s aerospace and defense research analysts categorize the global military fire control systems market into the following segments by product. They are:

  • Naval
  • Ground-based
  • Airborne


The seas and oceans cover more than 70% of the global surface and are home to approximately 50,000 large ships, which carry 80% of the world's traded cargo. However, owing to the growing possibilities of terrorist attacks through sea routes and increased illegal dealings in mid-oceans, it has become increasingly important for countries to enhance their combat systems to counter the maritime threats.

According to Moutushi Saha, a lead defense research analyst from Technavio, “Many countries are augmenting their maritime security capabilities to ensure that illegal and hostile infiltration into their territories does not take place. At the same time, major defense contractors are arming the existing naval vessels with advanced fire control systems, which enable effective detection and precision while firing or shooting at a target.


The global ground-based fire control systems market can be divided into two segments, which are gun-mounted fire control systems and vehicle-mounted fire control systems. While there are many vehicle-mounted fire control systems, gun-mounted fire control systems are being widely adopted worldwide by the armed troops. The system is designed specifically to precisely detect, track, and aim at the ground-based mobile or stationary targets.

Ground-based fire control systems are generally equipped with sun-viewable alpha-numeric displays, smart electronics for gun control, emergency stop buttons, and an option to interface with multiple guns. These fire control systems are capable of tracking and precisely striking the mobile and high-speed targets. These advanced targeting systems are generally operated in three modes; handheld fire control system, joystick, and laser aiming sight,” says Moutushi.


The global military aviation market has gained momentum both in the fighter planes segment and the special mission aircraft segment. There has been an increase in the focus on the development of these planes since 2011 with the emergence of fighter aircraft such as the Chengdu J-10 and the F-22 Raptor.

An imperative need has emerged for the defense authorities to gain control over the surrounding or neighboring skies, seas, and lands due to the raging conflicts in many countries. Several countries such as the US, China, Russia, Japan, India, the UAE, and the UK are investing extensively in defense equipment to accomplish a competitive edge over the enemies.

The top vendors highlighted by Technavio’s research analysts in this report are:
