Worldwide Air Defense Sales Predicted


In the coming decade, at least until 2027, steady growth is expected in the market for air defense and missile defense systems, according to a case study of the dynamics of the arms market (Air Defense Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2019–2027 ”).


This is “predicted” to happen, as the rise in disposable incomes, coupled with the growing need for security and the likelihood of international conflicts, will contribute to the development of the defense sector worldwide.

Saudi Arabia’s largest oil facility has recently been attacked, exacerbating the conflict between this country and Iran. And the United States is sending [to the Middle East] fighters and missile defense systems. [...] Growing tensions in the region and the widespread use of unmanned aerial vehicles are expected to be the main problems that will stimulate the growth of the air defense market

- noted in the media.

Leaders and newcomers


The market currently has a considerable number of different range of air defense systems that can be placed on a wide variety of offshore, air or ground platforms. The authors of the report expect that the growth of investment in innovation by key countries such as the United States, China, Russia, France and others will contribute to a significant increase in the market of anti-aircraft systems in the near future.

In addition, Turkey announced that its own development in the field of air defense-missile defense called Hisar-A is ready for production. The entire complex is placed on an armored platform of its own production. The novelty has successfully passed field trials, and the Turkish government is supposed to purchase it for its military.

The dominance of new technologies


In addition, the general expansion of cooperation and increased demand for advanced technologies, as noted in the text, will become key trends in this segment of the global arms market.

The authors of the report also expect that an increase in the capabilities of artificial intelligence, 3D printing, and drones will contribute to a whole stream of innovations and the rise of the market, while reducing the cost of products and improving their quality. In the future, the improvement in sales of air defense systems will also be favored by the improvement of light fiber materials.

The report on the global market for air defense systems includes a detailed study of key regions of the world, including North America, Latin America, Europe, the Asia-Pacific region, as well as the Middle East and Africa. Among them, it is North America that will retain its leading position during the period under review, as stated in the study.

      Why grab it? We create air defense against our eternal enemies .. And those countries that agree with us actively began to buy them! Even the turn is worth it .. We Russians do not vomit, we just survived many wars and invasions ..

      I think it’s not even the Patriot’s failure, but that the general tendency for the development of missile weapons in terms of reducing their cost, especially in the cruise missile sector, will make the whole world reduce the use of fighter aircraft, and vice versa, the number of different types of ground-based air defense systems will sharply increase a class capable of fighting this type of offensive weapon. So the fact that we have established ourselves in the global market in this sector gives us an additional chance to squeeze other countries in this segment, which should please us.

    Most of it won't work, Alex! But we must try not to rub the already conquered markets. After all, the market has long been divided. We occupy a stable position in the segment of long-range air defense systems. The only minus so far is that none of our systems (S-300, S-400) has undergone combat break-in in conflicts. But buyers, for the most part, pay attention not to PR, but to combat results.
    In the segment of medium-range and shorter-range air defense systems, competition will be stronger because there are a sufficient number of countries producing such systems in the world.
    You should not hope that the "mattress" buyers are switching to contracts with Russia. Making conclusions based on Turkey is not the best way to make a mistake.

    It is unlikely that anyone will rush about. Only the most crazy. Most will try to buy the necessary complexes, while diversifying supplies. For example, long-range S-400s will be bought, and medium-sized ones will be bought by American or French systems (or maybe Chinese), the main thing here is not so much iron (the complexes themselves) as their quantity, the structure of the air defense system itself and, most importantly, personnel training. You can give the side-handed S-400 or S-500 and these complexes will not fulfill their purpose.

    In fact, there was no failure of the Patriot in Saudi Arabia. There are no complexes that knock everything down. Dips can be in any complex. It all depends on the air defense construction scheme and the staff's squint. But in principle, "Patriot" for 30 years has shown itself quite well in conflicts and based on these conflicts it is constantly being modernized ...

        Any Russian, with mother’s milk, absorbs simple truth - no one sells weapons to the enemy.
        What is the use of Russia from the sale of weapons, if they use the same weapons to kill us? One agriculture in Russia brings more income than the sale of the entire Russian military-industrial complex abroad, per year. And if you tighten the industry, then you can completely forget about the sale of weapons.
        But for some, I see, the trading vein does not directly give rest .....

      Old26, I’m not tired of writing the same thing from time to time - a lie! We occupy stable positions not only in the long-range air defense system segment, but also in other segments. If you do not know the parameters of the air defense system, then do not write nonsense. Our air defense systems are run-in during manufacture and acceptance so close to military operations that it is tantamount to military operations. I well remember the dialogues on VO and stupidity about the short-range air defense system "Shell-C1", which were based, among other things, on fakes ...
      Firstly, the first time the “Shell-C1” was struck when it was turned off by the Syrian military slobs, smoking on the sidelines. Secondly, the second case is the frankly glued Israeli fake anti-aircraft missiles of the Pantsira complex, and many other air defense systems, they do not have and did not have such maneuverability. However, this fake was introduced by Russophobes to Wikipedia, so that people like you and others not patriots repent and sprinkle ashes on their heads.

      For you and others, not patriots - the likelihood of a medium-range Buk-M3 air defense system being hit is 0,9999. Maybe you can bring the data of the foreign air defense system commensurate with Buk-M3 for this parameter?
      Old26, you have been repeatedly written about how the S-400 air defense system, like many others, has a basic automatic mode of operation, where is your fairy tale about the squint of staff is a fairy tale and no more. And can’t the Russian military train the personnel of another state serving Russian-made air defense systems in comparison with foreign "teachers"?

      Stary26, do not consciously confuse the squint of the American specialists who sold the Patriot air defense system and mounted it with the squint of the staff! How could one use the Patriot air defense system with a minimum height of defeat of N = 60 meters against drones flying below this height. The squint of American specialists is evident.

    It is clear that military success is the best advertisement. And in the current situation ???

    The question, of course, is not addressed, but I can express a personal opinion.

    Promotion will go faster if our complexes, especially long-range (expensive and high-tech) show themselves in at least one conflict. And here, after all, a lot of questions immediately arise. Here, for example, we sold the S-300PMU-2 complex (EMNIP) to Iran. But they sold it in the amount of 4 divisions. Which are spread throughout Iran, and not concentrated in one place. If we assume that a conflict will occur between Iran and the United States and its allies, the United States will try to make every effort to neutralize these complexes. They have experience. The first Gulf War was characterized by the US neutralizing all of Iraq's fighter aircraft and air defense system. At the same time, creating interference several times higher than those that are sufficient to "clog" the air defense system.
    So here the Americans will try to do. And hereinafter ... Further unpredictably. If the S-300 will work well and bring down a number of planes, helicopters and missiles of the United States and its allies - this will be enough for future customers to believe that our systems really "have no analogues." But a small number of purchased complexes and their "spreading" over the entire territory of Iran will most likely lead to the fact that each division is blocked and destroyed in turn. And what kind of howl will rise in the Western media, how much dirt will be poured on our complexes and what the headlines will be - one can only imagine.

    The optimal, of course, would be to use the S-300 against Israeli aircraft in Syria, but I’m afraid that the Syrians will never dare to do this, because they understand that the Israelis will roll these systems into a thin pancake.
    Of the real possibilities, this is the sale of the S-400 to the United Arab Emirates and the Saudis, and the Saud’s need to fundamentally change the construction of the entire air defense system. Then perhaps knocking down Yemeni targets, these complexes will really show the class. But to be honest, I don’t really believe it. I am afraid that the lineup for S-400-type complexes is unlikely to become longer in the coming years. And a military assault with medium- and short-range complexes - quite broad sales and their testing in combat conditions are possible here ...
    So I can answer, Alexei, the only way. We are on the heels of China with their fairly cheap products and a wide range of products ...

      Vladimir, thanks for the answer! I think that advertising the same Shells - Haftar’s troops in Libya can help make (Shells transferred to him by the UAE). A serious conflict involving the use of aircraft is also possible there, provided Turkey is directly involved in the Libyan conflict.
      In China, I partially agree ... but, the performance characteristics of Chinese complexes is an even bigger mystery for the whole World, in fact also having no examples of combat use! And in the Asia-Pacific region, far from all the friends of the Chinese, China has “frozen” conflicts with many countries (Vietnam, Philippines, Malaysia).
      Yes, even the Hindus - with the complication of the situation with Pakistan, can make an advertisement for our weapons ...

    We sell 4-8 engines a year. For all the years of sales - a little over a hundred. On these engines, Americans carry out approximately 20-25% of launches. All the remaining 75-80% on their own, American engines. So here we are not losing anything. We are not in the first place in terms of the number of launches. In 2018 we were on the third, now we are confidently holding the second, although the difference with the Americans is 3 starts. China is ahead

    Everything depends on in which region and in conflicts of what intensity this will happen.
    The same Sauds have a problem with intercepting missiles from Yemen (and these are medium-range missiles, and not just cruise missiles and drones). A medium-range missiles you "Buk" is unlikely to intercept ...
    In conflicts with Iran, such complexes can also be in demand, because there will be a whole range of goals.
    But in conflicts in the same Africa (what they now have, Somalia, Sudan, or something else - the Buk can be used there, and maybe it will be redundant and short-range complexes will be needed there. It's hard to predict. ..

      I personally observed in the winter of 90-91. how the Patriots shot down the Soviet-made Scuds, which Saddam Hussein then bombarded with Israel during Operation Desert Storm. At that time, the Israelis did not yet have their own complexes, and the Americans sent five (if I am not mistaken) batteries, serviced by their own calculations. These complexes acted quite effectively.

        "That's how it was ...
        On the evening of February 25, 1991, already at the very end of Operation Desert Storm, the Iraqi Scud fell on an American air base in Saudi Dahran. Here, it would seem, where does the rounding of fractions?
        The missile smashed the barracks of the 475th Detachment of the US Army Quartermaster Service, responsible for water treatment. The explosion killed 28 people - this is one fifth of all dead Americans during the entire Gulf War. About a hundred more were injured.
        The Scud was discovered by the radar of the standby battery of the Patriot anti-aircraft missile system, which covered Dahran. The missile was spotted ... and failed to do anything. It remains only to observe how it falls into the barracks.
        As it turned out, the blame for the death of 28 people took over the anti-aircraft complex software. "

        During the Persian Gulf War in 1991, Iraqis fired at modified R-17 territories of Israel (40 missiles) and Saudi Arabia (46 missiles) (according to other sources, 98 missiles were launched). In general, the effectiveness of these rocket attacks was insignificant - according to the Israeli side, two-thirds of the launched missiles fell in uninhabited territory, 2 people became victims of rocket attacks in Israel, 11 more were seriously injured. Only one attack had a significant result - the missile hit the American barracks in the city of Dharam, resulting in the death of 28 American soldiers and two hundred more were injured.

        To repel the attacks, the Patriot American anti-aircraft missile systems were used, and there are conflicting statements about the effectiveness of their use. According to Israeli data, no more than 47 Scuds fell into the Patriot’s area of ​​operations, for which a total of 158 missiles were fired [7]. According to the Israeli Ministry of Defense, the Patriots, despite the cost of missile defense (including the case with 28 units per target, managed to intercept no more than 20% of the missiles launched by Iraqis

          In general, the effectiveness of these rocket attacks was insignificant - according to the Israeli side, two-thirds of the launched missiles fell in uninhabited territory, 2 people became victims of rocket attacks in Israel, 11 more were seriously injured.

          And why, then, Israel frantically bought gas masks around the world? So it’s not worth it to be so dismissive of even several successfully launched missiles - if they hit the Israeli nuclear center or if they carried chemical or bacteriological weapons, it is still unknown how all this would turn out for Israel.

    North America will retain its leading position

    Well, who would doubt it laughing It would be strange if “Air Defense Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2019–2027” declared that Russia was the leader.

    The United States, unwillingly, is making it so that more and more countries show interest in the air defense systems manufactured in Russia.
