Competitive vendor landscape

According to the research analysis, the global APS market has few multinational and regional suppliers, offering heterogeneous products and services. As the market is in its growth phase, the vendors are obliged to compete based on innovative technologies and upgrading their existing systems, quality, and reliability. Suppliers in EMEA have been conducting R&D on APS and EW systems for many years and have been dominating the market with their technical skill set.

“As the market evolves with newer anti-tank missiles and weapons systems with varied capabilities, there exists a chance for vendors in APAC and the Americas to come up with product offerings that are more precise, rank high on the technical front, and are offered at lower prices than the multinational vendors,” says Moutushi Saha, a lead construction research analyst from Technavio.

The report also states that to remain competitive in the market, existing key vendors should identify and respond to the evolving trends of geopolitical situations for their long-term survival in the market. Vendors should respond to the changing military spending and buying pattern, by offering APS with advanced capabilities such as extensive range and quick reaction systems. This can be a significant strategy for vendors to create a demand for their new products by substituting the old.
