CBRN refers to the malicious use of chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear materials or weapons to cause significant harm or disruption. These weapons are rapidly replacing conventional arms due to their potential to affect the target on a larger scale. Besides this, they render a long-lasting impact and affect mortality rates of the current and future generations. CBRN defense includes mitigation, contamination avoidance, and undertaking protective measures and adequate research to identify defense measures that can be utilized in situations wherein advanced research and development of medical countermeasures are necessary.

CBRN Defense Market Trends:

Although technological innovations in nuclear energy, life sciences and biotechnology have positively impacted human development, they have also induced CBRN terrorism. Consequently, the increasing safety measures undertaken by authorities concerned with medical services are among the key factors driving the demand for CBRN defense solutions. Moreover, the procurement of chemicals and materials for manufacturing CBRN weapons has become easier, which, in turn, is spurring the demand for suitable defense systems across the globe. Apart from this, demilitarization initiatives, such as the reduction of CBRN weapons stockpile, and the increasing investments in CBRN resistance technologies are fostering the market growth. Moreover, the leading players are focusing on devising advanced CBRN defense products with enhanced effectiveness, detection capabilities and rapid decontamination functions. They have also introduced CBRN reconnaissance vehicles with real-time monitoring capabilities, georeferencing chemical compounds and LASER technology for long-range detection of CBRN threats.
