Regional Insights

Well Established Industry in North America to Aid Growth

North America is expected to hold a substantial aerostat system market share in the foreseeable future. The presence of significant players such as Exelis Inc., ILC Dover, L.P., Lockheed Martin Corporation, Raven Industries Inc., Raytheon Company, Tcom L.P., and others is associated with this development. In addition, the rising need for aerostat for law enforcement and homeland security is propelling the market forward.

Europe is expected to showcase considerable growth in the forthcoming years. The existence of prominent players such as Allsopp Helikites Ltd., Lindstrand Technologies Limited, and others is attributed to this growth. The market is expected to grow in the U.K., as more consumers are utilizing aerostats for crowd control, harbor surveillance, and coastline tracking.

Competitive Landscape

Market Leaders to Focus on R&D to Facilitate Company Growth

The aerostat systems industry is moderately consolidated, with only a few prominent firms controlling a substantial chunk of the industry. The product has a lot of commercial potential, particularly in the communication domain. As a result, manufacturers’ collaborations with a variety of commercial operators are projected to boost sales and expand their global reach. Aerostat developers, on the other hand, are integrating sophisticated sensors into their existing aerostats to improve their capabilities. Unmanned aerostats, for example, are likely to define the future of the aerostats sector, with players incorporating such technology into their future products.
