Military and Aerospace Electronics
The demand for military electronics is driven by the amount of money that governments spend overall on military affairs and by the systems (such as ships, aircrafts, and communications) that each country's military requires to carry out its missions.
The industries most representative products are platform systems, communication & control systems, navigation, satellites and space systems.
There are several satellites used for navigation, communication, the weather and general warning systems.
The market size is estimated to be $116Bn in 2008 and growing at a projected average annual rate of 6.2% through until 2011 ($139Bn). The major drivers of this segment are the reconnaissance, protection and signal analysis, high bandwidth, real time wireless based information and continued inertia of heavy metal programs.
To operate at the leading edge of technology, Atotech's worldwide OEM teams stay in constant and close contact with the market leaders on the PCB, EMS and OEM level for military electronics to fulfill their present and future needs and align Atotech's research and development program accordingly.
