Dependent surveillance-broadcast market to hit $3.65 trillion by 2030

Global Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast Market reached USD 853.7 million in 2022 and is expected to reach USD 3,652.0 bIllion by 2030, growing with a CAGR of 19.9% during the forecast period 2023-2030.

The market has experienced substantial growth propelled by the increasing demand for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and airborne surveillance. A notable illustration of this trend is evident in SF Airlines’ actions in 2020, where the company undertook the retrofitting of its entire Boeing aircraft with replacement traffic collision avoidance system directional antennas and air traffic control transponders provided by Thales. The retrofit aimed at achieving Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast Out (ADS-B Out) compliance. Thales, in collaboration with its joint venture partner L3Harris through ACSS, played a pivotal role in providing avionics for the retrofit project.

SF Airlines, established in 2009, stands as the largest air cargo operator in China, boasting a fleet that includes air freighter-configured Boeing 737, 747, 757, and 767 aircraft. This strategic move exemplifies China’s significant contribution to the market, accounting for nearly half of the regional share. As the demand for unmanned aerial vehicles and advanced airborne surveillance technologies continues to rise, the market is poised for further expansion, with China playing a prominent role in shaping its trajectory.

Market Dynamics
Regulatory Standards and Surveillance Modernization in European Air Traffic Management

The modernization of surveillance systems within European Air Traffic Management (ATM) is being driven by the adoption of Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) and Multilateration (MLAT). EUROCONTROL, as a central authority overseeing ATM in Europe, is actively focusing on enhancing the performance and efficiency of surveillance systems. This involves the utilization of technologies such as ADS-B, MLAT, and Mode S for both ground surveillance infrastructure and aircraft surveillance applications.

EUROCONTROL’s efforts align with the broader objectives of performance-based modernization and rationalization in the European ATM Network. These initiatives support both long-term projects under the Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR) program and short-term implementations. The phased integration of ADS-B and multilateration systems is a key component of this modernization process.

The implementation of ADS-B is often introduced following the initial deployment of multilateration systems. The Surveillance Performance and Interoperability Regulation (SPI IR) – EU Regulation No. 1207/2011, along with subsequent amendments, mandates the use of improved ADS-B avionics for operational compliance. In line with these regulations, the Surveillance Performance and Interoperability in the European Airspace Directive (EU) No. 1207/2011 and its subsequent modification (EU) No. 1207/2014 stipulate that any aircraft operating under Instrument Flight Rules/General Air Traffic (IFR/GAT) must be equipped with and operate an Enhanced Surveillance (ELS) in Mode S. These regulatory standards play a crucial role in shaping the trajectory of surveillance modernization efforts within the European airspace. Open PR
