Currently, there are various programs that are ongoing, in terms of conventional take-off and landing fighter aircraft. Under the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) Program, the US Department of Defense (DOD) is planning to acquire more than 2,400 new generation F-35s. In the total acquisition, more than 1,700 aircraft will be F-35A.

Moreover, the F-35A is expected to replace the F-16 and the F-15 fighter aircraft. Singapore is also planning to replace the country's aging F-16 fighter jets with the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. Thus, the upcoming developments are expected to increase the focus on this segment, thereby increasing the expected CAGR of the segment.
