In terms of revenue, the global high-reliability semiconductors for aerospace & defense market is estimated to expand at a CAGR of ~5% during the forecast period, owing to several factors, regarding which, study offers thorough insights and forecasts in its report on the global high-reliability semiconductors for aerospace & defense market.
Semiconductor components can affect long-term reliability of the system in which they are used, causing its premature failure. Factors that affect long-term reliability include elevated temperatures, metal migration, and ionizing radiation.
High-reliability semiconductor components include DC–DC converters, voltage regulators, power transistors, diodes, and integrated circuits (ICs). Aerospace & defense is the largest end-user industry of such components, as products and systems used in this industry need to be free from all kinds of vulnerabilities.
Global High-reliability Semiconductors for Aerospace & Defense Market: Dynamics
Owing to geopolitical tensions across the globe, various countries are focusing on strengthening their military bases, and are increasing their budgets accordingly. For example, the U.S. Department of Defense has requested for allocation of US$ 718 Bn in the 2020 budget, an increase of 5% over the 2019 budget.
The U.S. is also encouraging member countries of NATO to increase their military spending to 2% of their respective GDPs. France has announced that it would be increasing its defense spending by around 40% over the next six years, as it targets meeting the NATO objective of ‘2% of the GDP’ spent on the defense sector.
Furthermore, in 2019, the Government of India announced a defense budget of US$ 44.6 Bn for FY 2019–20, which represented an increase of 6.87% over that for the previous year. According to SIPRI, seven out of the top 10 countries with the maximum military spending as a percentage of GDP are located in the Middle East. These are Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman, and Israel.
A significant portion of the defense spending of a country needs to be used for systems to be operated in extreme environment conditions. Thus, rise in defense budgets is indirectly expected to drive the global high-reliability semiconductors for aerospace & defense market during the forecast period.
