Rising incidences of asymmetric warfare and increasing demand for inter-connected soldiers are the major factors driving the growth of the soldier systems market, globally.”
The soldier systems market is projected to grow from 9.78 billion in 2018 to USD 14.14 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 7.65% from 2018 to 2023. The growth of the market for soldier systems is driven by several factors such as the increasing focus of military forces of different countries on the soldier protection, upgrading the existing soldier gears, growing terrorism, and increasing need for inter-connected warfare systems. However, factors such as the complexities involved in the integration of various subsystems of soldier systems, funding constraints for R&D activities being carried out to bring innovations in soldier systems, and decreasing budgets of soldier modernization programs are expected to challenge the growth of the soldier systems market across the globe.
“Based on type, the training & simulation segment of the soldier systems market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.”
Based on type, the soldier systems market has been segmented into personal protection, Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE), communication, power and transmission, surveillance and target acquisition, navigation and health monitoring, vision, exoskeleton, and training & simulation. The training & simulation segment of the soldier systems market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growth of the training & simulation segment of the market can be attributed to the penetration of Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) in various training & simulation devices. The ability of augmented reality to combine the real world with virtual objects has increased the demand for augmented reality in various defense applications.
“The Asia Pacific region is projected to lead the soldier systems market during the forecast period.”
The Asia Pacific region is expected to lead the soldier systems market in 2018. The Asia Pacific soldier systems market is also projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. India, China, Australia, and Japan are the key markets for the soldier systems in the Asia Pacific region. The growth of the Asia Pacific soldier systems market can be primarily attributed to the rising incidences of armed conflicts or war against terrorism and ongoing soldier modernization programs in various countries of the region.
