Improvised explosive devices (IEDs) have proven to be an effective and increasingly preferred weapon by insurgents, primarily in Iraq and later in Afghanistan, along with many other places in the world. Many of the world's leading armed forces have responded by spending heavily on equipment that will protect against IEDs, such as mine-resistant vehicles, jammers that block radio signals meant to detonate IEDs, detection and disposal systems, and robots and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) intended to detect the deadly menace. While demand has peaked in recent years, spending on counter-IED spending remains significant. IEDs, being cheap and relatively easy to make with widely available material are expected to remain a threat in future conflicts. This new study assesses that the global counter-IED market amounted to $6.4bn in 2011.
The past year has seen significant defence spending cuts but for the next few years, spending on counter-IED systems will remain robust over the next decade. The continued development of new counter-IED systems is also expected to sustain demand. This report examines the counter-IED market over the next decade, providing detailed market forecasts for each of the leading national markets. This report will describe how the counter-IED market is likely to unfold over the next decade given current constraints along with related national programmes.
