The research organization also listed Wednesday the following top five vendors in the market that are expected to make an impact during the forecast period:
- Lockheed Martin
- Northrop Grumman

“[The] existing major players in the market need to identify the evolving trends and market shifts, and adapt to them for long-term success and survival in the market,” said Abhay Singh, lead analyst at Technavio.
The report added that recent economic constraints and budget cuts in Europe and the U.S. led to challenges in the market, but developing countries in Asia-Pacific and the Middle East look to build up their defense radar systems and technology with modern capabilities.
