The upgrading of existing fighter jets is among the major factors fueling the adoption of the MIL-DTL-81714 Series II connectors. In 2018, Royal Thai Air Force announced its plans of upgrading of the Saab Early Warning System; replacement of F-16 fighter jets and L-39s trainers; and procurement of various transport aircraft, helicopters, and unmanned aircraft. Similarly, the Defense Acquisition Council (DAC) approved defense deals worth  INR 389 billion in July 2020, including the purchase of 21 MiG-29 Indian Air Force (IAF) fighter jets, upgrading of 59 existing MiG-29 jets from the IAF inventory, and purchase of 12 Su-30MKI aircraft from Russia. Further, the increasing procurement of advanced fighter and transport aircraft is also propelling the MIL-DTL-81714 Series II connectors market growth. For example, the Government of India is finalizing the 83 Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) Mark 1 A contract and is also in the process of acquiring 200 aircraft fleet to cope with depleting aerial inventories of the Indian Air Force (IAF). In addition, Boeing, the US defense major, is considering offering its F-15EX Eagle fighter jets to the IAF and has also applied for a license from the US authorities to export them to India. The move is seen as Boeing’s attempt to seize an IAF contract worth US$ 18 billion to procure 114 fighter jets. Similarly, Argentine Air Force has announced the procurement plan including aircraft such as IA 63, Mi-171, KC-390, and T-6C+. Thus, owing to growing adoption of military aircraft the MIL-DTL-81714 Series II connectors market is projected to witness significant growth.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on MIL-DTL-81714 Series II Connectors Market

North America is known for the highest adoption rate of advanced technologies due to favorable government policies to boost innovation and strengthen infrastructure capabilities. As a result, any factor affecting the performance of industries in the region hinders its economic growth. Currently, the US is the world’s worst-affected country due to the COVID-19 outbreak, which has led governments to impose several limitations on industrial, commercial, and public activities in the country to control the spread of infection.
