In its latest report, MarketsandMarkets forecasts that the anti-jamming market for GPS will reach USD 4.80 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 7.0 %. Further, in terms of volume, the market size is expected to reach 309.2 thousand units by 2022, at a CAGR of 10.1% during the forecast period.

The growing demand for a secured weapons guided system among the worlds' military establishment is expected to be the major factor driving the market. According to the report, the military-based airborne segment is expected to lead the anti-jamming market for GPS for end users in terms of value

The use of applications of flight control, surveillance and reconnaissance, targeting and casualty evacuation in airborne operations are expected to be the leading factors for the dominance of military-based airborne end users. However, the military-based ground segment is expected to lead the market size in terms of volume owing to the comparatively cheaper price of ground-based GPS anti-jammers compared to naval-, unmanned-, and air-based GPS anti-jamming modules.

The anti-jamming market for GPS for flight control application is expected to exhibit high growth during the forecast period. Flight control includes guidance of airborne vehicles in manned as well as unmanned systems. The adoption of GPS anti-jammers on aircrafts, drones and missiles for guidance among GPS denied areas is driving this high growth during the forecast period.

The market in Asia-Pacific (APAC) region is expected to grow at the highest rate between 2016 and 2022 because of the ongoing territorial disputes between China and Japan, China and some South-East Asian nations in the South China Sea, and Japan and South Korea with North Korea's missile tests. These disputes are expected to increase defense spending, which includes GPS anti-jamming systems.
