According to a research report "Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) Market by Type (Electronic Intelligence (ELINT) & Communications Intelligence (COMINT)), Application (Airborne, Naval, Ground (Vehicle-Mounted, Soldiers, & Base Station), Space, & Cyber), and Region - Global Forecast to 2025", the global SIGINT market size is projected to grow from USD 14.0 billion in 2020 to USD 17.2 billion by 2025, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 4.2% during the forecast period. The major driving factors for the SIGINT market are the increasing terrorism, growing defense budget of major countries across the globe, and modernization or replacement of an aging defense system.
By type, the COMINT segment to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period
COMINT is the subset of SIGINT that facilitates militaries with real-time decision-making and offers a strategic advantage on the battlefield. COMINT is the gathering of data that involves messages or voice information from the enemy’s communication system. It helps in detecting, intercepting, direction-finding, and analyzing the transmissions of opponents. This provides the operator with the ability to detect and analyze unusual patterns, signals, and movements of enemy forces.
Based on application, the cyber segment to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period
Cyber threat intelligence is the information that the defense sector uses to understand the potential threat. Attackers such as hacktivists, script-kiddies, cyber terrorists, cybercriminals, and targeted intrusion target business operations and IT systems, so it is very important to have a level of knowledge of such threats. In order to provide effective protection from cyber-attacks, intelligence provides means to collect, analyze, and sort all of the cyber-attack data related to the attacker and attack procedures used.
