ISIS and the Ebola epidemic drive significant spending in global $10.2bn CBRN defence market, Says the New Study on ASDReports

Wednesday 17 December 2014, Amsterdam

Market Research Report Press Release Chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear defence continues to play an absolutely indispensible part in any country’s security and defence systems. Although nuclear and radiological agents are relatively difficult to obtain by a non-state actor or terrorist organisation, chemical and biological warfare agents are much easier to produce and often require small labs to manufacture – an environment perfect for modern day terrorist organisations.

ISIS has been recently identified by Western intelligence agencies as aiming to weaponise a number of biological agents. With the rise of homegrown terrorism affiliated with ISIS, the biological and chemical terrorism threat is currently on the increase, which is clearly visible in the previously unexpected increased spending on CBRN. The outbreak of the Ebola epidemic in West Africa is also a significant factor driving growth in the CBRN market with some Western countries spending heavily on developing vaccines and bio-defence countermeasures. Finally, CBRN defence is also an important part of safety and security infrastructure of any state with civilian nuclear energy generation programmes.

Strong growth in the developing world, still in the process of creating their own significant CBRN capabilities will offset the strong financial constraints of the Western nations.
