The rising requirement to acquire maritime aircraft with the latest technology keeping up with new cyber threats will support the market expansion. For instance, in March 2020, India announced acquisition of P8I Maritime Patrol Aircraft, which comes with aerial Anti-submarine Warfare (ASW) and C4I (Command, Control, Communication, Computers & Intelligence) airborne platforms, providing tactical advantage.
 

Presence of major aircraft manufacturers, such as Airbus, Boeing, and Lockheed Martin, along with significant intervention of government and defense bodies while undergoing contracts will regularize market dynamics. The companies in collaborations with government bodies and research centers are extensively investing in R&D activities of peripheral components, such as sensors and cameras, to increase efficiency of maritime surveillance systems.
 

The maritime patrol aircraft market witnessed a moderate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic due to the temporary shutdown of various military & defense projects in mid-2020. Several government administrations have passed regulations to suspend the production activities related to defense equipment manufacturing to minimize the spread of the coronavirus pandemic. This has delayed developments in the ongoing projects, hampering the market. However, surging requirements for emergency medical services and rescue & airlifting operations for COVID-19 patients in the coastal areas and neighboring nations have created a high demand for maritime patrolling aircraft. Adding to this, the stringent restrictions imposed on the international transportation of goods and unwanted trade activities are expected to increase the demand for maritime patrol aircraft during the COVID-19 pandemic.
 

Technological development in maritime surveillance components, supporting the market revenue in North America region

The North America camera segment accounted for more than USD 300 million in 2019 and showcase growth rate of more than 2% through 2026 led by ongoing technological advancements in cameras, allowing them to capture high resolution images in various environmental conditions.
 

Increasing efforts of major industrial participants toward development of integrated surveillance kits, which can be retrofitted in existing aircraft will drive the market positively. For instance, in June 2019, Lockheed Martin introduced a maritime patrol aircraft retrofit kit for C-130 Hercules. The kit includes a nose-mounted electro-optical/infrared camera, multi-mode radar, wing-tip-mounted electronic support measures, a magnetic anomaly detector boom on the tail, and droppable sonar buoys.

The Asia Pacific Jet engine segment in the maritime patrol aircraft market is predicted to expand at a CAGR of 5% by 2026. The rise in geopolitical tension and missile testing activities in China, India, Pakistan, North Korea, and South Korea have accelerated the acquisition of surveillance aircraft. There has been a significant rise in cross border conflicts, which has given rise to unwanted naval threats and terrorist activities. Efforts of some countries to establish global and regional dominance are creating tension within the environment, augmenting the market opportunities.
 

Various countries are increasing their pace of defense acquisition to safeguard their borders from neighboring countries. For instance, in March 2020, South Korea finalized the order of six Boeing P-8 maritime patrol and reconnaissance jets, which will be delivered by 2022. The acquisition was in response to aggressive missile testing activities carried out by North Korea.
