The global electronic warfare market will reach $15.6 billion by 2020, according to a new forecast by ASDReports. This reflects a compound annual growth rate of 4.5 percent from $12.2 billion in 2014.

The report predicts increased use of small electronic warfare systems by UAVs and small naval vessels, as well as more systems to create or penetrate the stealth features of aircraft. There will also be more use of land-based electronic warfare.

The largest market growth will occur in Latin America, the Middle East and the Asia-Pacific region. "Brazil will be the leader in the Latin American region due to their commitment to electronic war systemsí research, development and implementation," said the forecast. "In Asia and Middle-East the growth will be from border disputes and the response to these disputes."
