Active Protection System Market Application (Infrared Decoy, Radar Decoy, Directed Energy, Electro-Optics Jammers, Light Weapon Defense, Rocket/Missile-Based)Forecast, 2021–2030

Active protection system (APS) is a next-generation system that is integrated into or installed on a combat vehicle to defend itself against enemies automatically. An integrated radar system along with sensors, launchers, and countermeasure munitions is used in the design of active protection systems, allowing the system to shoot down interfering missile threats. Moreover, the system operates with a high accuracy, minimizing collateral damage. It provides high-performance anti-tank protection for armored fighting vehicles (AFVs) primarily battle tanks, light tanks, armored infantry fighting vehicles, and wheeled armored vehicles. Furthermore, an active protection system is designed to detect, track, intercept, and employ various forms of protection, which are activated at a safe distance safe from the defended vehicle and are used to destroy, disrupt, or degrade an incoming missile or projectile. This ideally reduces or eliminates the penetration capability as well as reduces the lethal effects and ensuring vehicle survival.

COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the defense industry. The imposed lockdown has severely disrupted the aerospace & defense supply chain industry. Furthermore, all of the major countries have prioritized their health budgets while reducing the defense budget. There was also a disruption in the manufacturing of defense equipment., It impacted the demand and delayed deliveries resulting in massive losses for the active protection system market. For instance, the Republic of Korea Armed Forces planned to cut $240 million from their defense budget during 2019-2020. Furthermore, the European Union low defense budget had a significant impact on demand for defense equipment and active protection system-related services. Furthermore, the decrease in defense spending and slow Active Protection System (APS) production have hindered the market growth. Furthermore, defense is an evolving sector that suffered a setback as a result of the pandemic but is expected to recover quick post-pandemic and drive the growth of the active protection system market.

Many countries have developed autonomous weapon systems to strengthen military capabilities and troops in various conflicts around the world. The proliferation of innovations in the field of sensor technologies, weapon firing systems, and other auxiliary systems is aimed at improving the accuracy and performance capabilities of the current generation of Active Protection System (APS). Furthermore, the emphasis on increasing the autonomy of the weapon systems has given rise to unmanned weapon technologies that can effectively neutralize a target without human intervention. For instance, Hungary ordered 209 new Lynx infantry fighting vehicles from Rheinmetall AG of Germany in 2021. The order is worth more than $165 million, and it will be equipped with strike shield hard-kill Active Protection System (APS)of  Rheinmetall. The demand for advanced combat systems in military & defense is thus expected to drive the growth of the active protection system market.
