Military Ethernet Switch Market Expected to Surpass $3.11 Billion by 2030

DUBLIN, August 12, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The report “Military Ethernet Switch Market by Port Speed, By Product Type, By Networking, By Application – Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2022-2030” has been added to from offer.

Market definition:

Global Military Ethernet Switch Market Size has been valued at US$1,504.1 million in 2021 and should reach $3119.7 million by 2030 with a CAGR of 8.7% from 2022 to 2030. Ethernet switches provide a central connection in an Ethernet network, where connected devices have a dedicated link with full operational bandwidth. Switches break LAN data into smaller data packets and send them to the destination to reduce wasted capacity caused by sending data to parts of the network that don’t need it. Ethernet switches are widely used for military applications due to their rich management capability. Some of the applications include aircraft communication systems, combat management systems, interface of communication units in armored vehicles, ground and air vehicles, in-flight Ethernet data communications, media converters and Missile Planning Units (MPU), among others. These switches are designed to meet the stringent performance and environmental requirements of these mission-critical military applications. They also provide safe, reliable and flexible connections to on-board vehicles and aircraft communication systems. Military Ethernet switches can withstand extreme temperature conditions and space-constrained environments of in-vehicle networks. Unlike conventional commercial Ethernet switches, military Ethernet switches are designed to meet shock, EMF, and EMI requirements.

Market dynamics and trends:

Factors that are fueling the growth of the military ethernet switch market over the forecast period are increasing penetration of technology in the military, need to transmit information faster during combat operations, and other advantages that it offers such as security, reliability and performance. Unmanned vehicles are becoming popular in the military as they are useful for gathering information in areas too dangerous or difficult for humans.

Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and unmanned underwater vehicles are widely used in research, exploration, situational awareness, and various other military operations. Ethernet switches are widely used in these unmanned vehicles as they allow better centralization of information and better data management. Additionally, Ethernet switches, which meet MIL-STD environmental standards and EMF requirements, are also used in armored vehicles that are common in war zones. Additionally, marine platforms include an extensive network of devices such as command and control, CCTV, sonar, radar, and cargo, among others. Establishing communication between these devices is very difficult without the Ethernet switches that form the backbone of such complex networks.
