Identification Friend & Foe System Market is expected to grow with a CAGR of more than 6% in the period between 2022 and 2027. Identification of Friend and Foe (IFF) system is a kind of system which is used to identify whether the target is a friend or foe. The IFF is an identification system that is used to command and control. It allows military air traffic control interrogation systems to identify the aircraft, vehicles, and forces that are friendly on not and helps to determine the bearing range from interrogators. An IFF interrogator sends coded radio signals to the aircraft. An aircraft has a special device called an IFF transponder, which picks up the signal and sends a response to identifying itself as a friend
An IFF system includes Hardware (transponders, interrogators, antennas, test equipment, crypto computers, and others) and software for the identification of aircraft, vehicles,s and other forces as friends and foes. These IFF systems are used in Land, Air, and Naval platforms.
The increasing adoption of modern technologies including IFF in defense drives the growth of the global Identification of Friend and Foe System Market in the period between 2022 and 2027.
The United States in North America region holds the largest market share of the Identification of Friend and Foe system due to its huge spending of their defense system. Additionally, with the increasing adoption of modern technology-based warfare equipment and aircraft needs modern IFF system for better detection of threats will boost the future growth of the Identification of Friend and Foe System Market.
China, India, Japan, and South Korea will become the fastest-growing market for IFF systems due to huge investment by these countries on powering their defense system and equipped them with modern technologies arises the demand of modern IFF systems in the market in the forecasted period between 2022 and 2027.
The driving force of the Identification Friend & Foe System Market is the rising need for technological devices for threat detection. As the security threats rise, the countries are compelled to safeguard their territories from any threats at any cost, due to which countries are more focused on enhancing their defense capabilities. The growing instances of asymmetric warfare and emphasis on developing the warfare system are the key driver of the IFF system market. The increasing adoption of modern technology-based military aircraft for the detection of threats with more precision and in real-time increases the demand for modern IFF systems in the market.
Additionally, now the government is more focused on strengthening defenses & allocating huge budgets that will increase the procurements and R&D in the future which will again boost the growth of the IFF market in the forecasted period.
The CABS (Centre for Airborne systems) has also initiated indigenous versions of IFF system for IAF. The release of such systems with advanced technologies subsequently drives the growth of the Identification of Friend and Foe system Market. Moreover, the contracts and agreements between the military and key players for the technological enhancement in the IFF system drive the future growth of IFF system market in the period between 2022 and 2027.
A governmental restriction towards the export of technology and equipment restricts the growth of the Identification of Friend & Foe Systems Market.
In November 2021, U.S Army Raytheon Intelligence and space wins U.S army contract to improve Mode-5 and ADS-B surveillance capabilities on identification friend and foe technologies, and the contract is expected to complete in 2026. This contract allows delivering a wide range of products and services including digital control panel, APX-119 transponder, KIV-77 crypto modules, mounting trays and crypto stimulators, personality modules for “critical” surveillance capabilities to the military in their mission for strengthening the national security.
In October 2020, Thales has launched TSA6000, a new addition to the IFF interrogators family. It is the first IIF interrogator to use flat fixed-array active antenna technology. It is compact in size and lighter in weight and has four fixed antennas for 360°coverage and enabling extremely fast identification of new types of threat
Identification Friend & Foe System Market Segmented and Sub- Segmented into
Based on Component, the global Identification of friends and foe system is segmented into hardware and software. Hardware includes transponders, interrogators, antennas, test equipment, crypto computers, and others. The hardware market is projected to have significant growth in the forecasted period due to increasing aircraft modernization programs and increasing adoption of IFF’s installations on military platforms like aircraft and ships.
Based on Platforms, the global Identification of friends and foe system is segmented into Land, Airborne, and Naval. The Airborne segment is going to boom in the forecasted period due to the increasing demand for IFF systems especially in military aircraft in order to maintain national security by identification of the threats.
The Global Identification Friend & Foe System has been categorized in four regions:
North America is the largest market for Identification Friends and Foe Systems due to its heavy investment in the military. The United States and Canada are currently focusing on upgrading their existing military fleet and their equivalent capabilities. The US defense budget for FY2020 stresses military system development to compete globally with China and Russia, while also prioritizing day-to-day operations for ongoing conflicts, crisis response, and allied participation.
By June 2020, the US National Security Agency, Joint Chiefs of Staff, and NATO are decided to replace the existing Mode 4 IFF systems with Mode 5 systems. Mode 5 IFF systems improve signaling waveforms and allow pilots to use a safe, encrypted code to probe friendly aircraft's IFF systems over longer distances. Raytheon intends to use Mode 5 standards on all of its airplanes. Its AN/APX-114 IFF interrogator was chosen to be installed onboard the US Air Force's Boeing F-15 upgrade program. And now in 2021, U.S Army has signed a contract with Raytheon Intelligence and Space for the improvement of the Mode-5 and ADS-B surveillance capabilities for better identification of targets as friends or foes.
Furthermore, key IFF system companies such as Raytheon Company, Northrop Grumman, and Micro Systems, Inc. are based in North America. In Asia-Pacific region, especially China, India, Japan and South Korea is expected to witness the highest growth in the IFF system market as their countries are highly investing in their defense. East-Asia region is expected to have enormous growth in IFF system in near future due to dispute over the South China Sea and China’s hard line posture towards Taiwan. Moreover, the boundary disputes and recent clashes between China and India boost the growth of the IFF system market in the future.
In Europe region, France is the largest exporter of smart weapons and other modern technologies related to defense including IFF system enabled aircrafts. France is manufacturing and exporting large scale modern equipments to other countries for the detection and control of threat which will fuel the growth of IFF System Market .Turkey is also growing to contribute the market growth of IFF systems in anticipated period between 2022 and 2027.
Raytheon Technologies had the largest share of the world’s Identification Friend & Foe System in terms of sales revenue.
During the COVID-19 outbreak, several industries and markets have been significantly impacted. Due to pandemic, government had allocated maximum budgets for essentials and on the healthcare which in turn affected the other market including IFF system. The IFF systems need a lot of R&D before manufacturing due to which its cost is too high. During a pandemic, the economy has shrunk and due to IFF's huge installation cost, new projects have stalled throughout the world, which, in turn, have led to a decline in demand for Identification Friend & Foe System. But with the recovering economy in 2021, it is estimated the demand for the IFF systems boosts the market growth in the forecasted period 2022 and 2027.
