Russia-Ukraine War Implication
The Russia-Ukraine war could change the market dynamics of Europe forever. The standoff has revived the predicament situation of the Cold War and pushed Europe to the brink of a major military conflict. The Russian aggression in Ukraine has redefined the global landscape in terms of business. As the global market was recuperating from the havoc wreaked by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Russia-Ukraine war has made several industry stakeholders skeptical.
There is hardly any sector that the war has left untouched, especially aggravating the business landscape of sectors ranging from aerospace to oil & gas. Amidst prevailing challenges, stakeholders are gearing to turn adversities into opportunities. However, soaring military aid for Ukraine could provide impetus to stakeholders. Meanwhile, it is to be noted that the relevant sanction could augment operating costs and disrupt industries.
The European Union is pushing for more sanctions against Russia, including halting imports of nuclear fuel from Russia and excluding Russia’s top lenders from the SWIFT banking system. Moreover, Russia has also imposed similar sanctions on most EU countries. The war crisis and sanctions have put a strain on global investment, trade, and economic activity. Therefore, skepticism and uncertainty remain prevalent regarding the conflict, its potential reach, and its longevity. Accordingly, the restoration of normal relations among partners could prove be a sign of improvement.

Drivers & Restraints-
Increasing Terrorist Activities to Favor Growth
Targeting pods are extensively used to assist ground attack aircraft in order to detect targets present in low altitudes. They also help in guiding the munitions to the identified targets. They are being highly demanded from several countries nowadays. The regulatory bodies of the countries are investing heavily on the upgradation of their military systems. Also, the rising cases of terrorist attacks and cross-border conflicts worldwide would affect the targeting pod market growth positively in the coming years.
Combat Aircraft Segment to Dominate Backed by Rising Upgradation of Existing Aircraft
Based on the platform, the market is segregated into helicopters, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), and combat aircraft. Amongst them, the combat aircraft segment was projected to dominate the market in 2018. This growth is attributable to the rising upgradation of existing aircraft and the increasing expenditure on the procurement of new aircraft.
Rising Geopolitical Tensions in Asia Pacific to Skyrocket Demand for Targeting Pods
Geographically, Europe is anticipated to lead in the near future by generating the largest targeting pod market share. The presence of numerous technologically advanced companies, such as Thales Group and BAE Systems would augment growth in this region. Apart from that, the increasing expenditure by the regulatory bodies to enhance the conventional targeting pods would propel growth.
Asia Pacific, on the other hand, is likely to exhibit a considerable growth throughout the forthcoming years on account of the increasing geopolitical tensions between South Korea, China, and India. It is hence leading to a high demand for targeting pods. Besides, the defense administrations in China and India are undertaking several developmental activities.
Key Players Focus on Signing Agreements & Launching New Products to Strengthen Positions
The companies operating in the market are engaging in acquisitions, agreements, and new product developments to strengthen their positions. The regulatory bodies are presently testing many aircraft to evaluate their performances. Below are two latest industry developments:
