Update: December 2011 - Market Research Media Ltd announces a new market report "Worldwide Defense High Performance Computing (HPC) Market Forecast 2015-2020".
If one were to choose an index that best represents a national military capacity, the high performance computing power of a nation would win as most comprehensive measure. More and more countries view supercomputing technology as a symbol of national military power.
High performance computing will be a key technology for meeting national security requirements and to enhance national defense economic competitiveness. High performance computing contributes substantially to the design and development of advanced vehicles and weapons, planning and execution of operational military scenarios, the intelligence problems of cryptanalysis and image processing, the maintenance of nuclear stockpile, and is a key enabler for science and discovery in security-related fields.
The global defense high performance computing market is projected to reach $13.6 billion in 2020. The estimate for worldwide cumulative market 2015 – 2020 is $65.5 billion, for a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.4% over the period 2015-2020.
The report provides detailed year-by-year (2015 – 2020) forecasts for the following defense HPC market segments:
- Infrastructure and service: 11 segments including servers, interconnects, HPC in the cloud and others;
- Applications: 10 segments;
- Fast growing/high priority technology segments, among them ARM-based servers, in-memory computing, and embedded High Performance Computing;
- By geographic region (Americas, EMEA, Asia/Pacific Rim) and by top 10 countries (country-by-country).
The report focuses on critical HPC applications in weapons technology, military communications, military simulation, operational weather and ocean forecasting; planning exercises related to analysis of the dispersion of airborne contaminants; cryptanalysis; military platform analysis; survivability/stealth design; intelligence/surveillance/reconnaissance systems; virtual manufacturing/failure analysis of large aircraft, ships, and structures; and biotechnology.
How much do individual countries plan to spend on defense-related HPC between 2015 and 2020? Where are the major market growth opportunities in military HPC market in 2015-2020? How are emerging COTS solutions shaping the market? These critical questions and many more can be answered through our in-depth research, as presented in this report
