The COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked damage on the economies of countries all over the world. The production of digital battlefield products, like as systems, subsystems, and components, has also been hampered. Although next-generation digital battlefield items for defence applications are critical, supply chain problems have temporarily halted their manufacturing processes. The level of COVID-19 exposure, the level at which industrial operations are functioning, and import-export rules, among other considerations, all influence the resumption of manufacturing activity.

The onset of the COVID-19 epidemic has brought a series of supply chain disruptions and operational disruptions to the North American region. According to a study published by the National Association of Manufacturers, about 80% of manufacturers expect the epidemic to have a financial impact on their business. Some large companies have closed their facilities and are still considering retrenchment. The manufacturing sector, which employs about 13 million workers in the US, is expected to contribute to the outbreak, mainly for two reasons: first, most production activities are in place and cannot be done remotely. Second, slower economic performance has reduced the demand for industrial products in the US and around the world. Industry experts, however, have said that the COVID-19 epidemic did not affect the demand for digital military products in the U.S. defense sector. The Department of Defense has asked manufacturers to continue production activities related to defense equipment.

The following significant developments demonstrate the surge in demand for digital battlefield in the defence sector during the COVID-19 crisis in the European region. The COVID-19 epidemic has hampered delivery of critical platforms in India, including HAL's supply of Tejas combat aircraft and Dhruv helicopters to the Indian Armed Forces. Other platforms' release dates are also likely to be pushed back, especially if lockdowns are extended. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Indian Ministry of Defence has delayed procurement deadlines, which would have an impact on the growth of digital battlefield products used in such aircrafts and helicopters.

Depending on the platform, the market is divided into air space, land, naval and space. Based on the CAGR, part of the space is expected to prove the highest CAGR from 2024 to 2031. The digital warfare systems deployed on the space platform enable real-time mapping of objects around the world and facilitate satellite communication networks. This will greatly support the growth of part of the space. Based on the platform, the aerial component is expected to lead the digital military arena market from 2022 to 2028. The growth of the aerial component is due to the growing tendency of the defense forces in the products and systems of the battlefield.

Based on the installation, a new procurement component is expected to lead the digital battlefield market from 2024 to 2031. The growth of the new procurement phase is due to the growing introduction of advanced defense systems and the increasing purchase of digital military products. The development component will register significant growth due to the increase in transformation activities and modernization of the old electronic military systems by defense forces to gain a foothold over incoming threats and enemy attacks.

The growing focus of the global defense force in modernizing their military equipment, including digital military field products, will boost market growth. This may be due to growing tensions between countries, leading to efforts to strengthen their defense forces. In recent years, more than nine major international conflicts have occurred, including the Syrian Civil War, the Saudi Arabia-Yemen conflict, the US-Iran conflict, and the India-China conflict. Such conflicts can lead to higher purchases of AI-enabled military products as well as the inclusion of advanced technology in existing military systems to make them more efficient and reliable.

Several governments set up specialized departments or agencies to integrate AI capabilities into existing machines and to focus on developing new skills in the digital war arena.

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Primary Research

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Data Bank Validation

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
