The Military Electro Optical Infrared (EO/IR) Systems Market 2011-2021

Report Information

Publication date: 21/ October / 2011
Number of Pages: 287

Report Details:

Military EO/IR systems are commonplace within modern and advanced militaries around the world, enabling war-fighters on the ground to achieve battlefield advantage through the use of infrared imaging, night vision capabilities, and range finding tools. In addition, the growth of unmanned aerial systems (UAS), and the development of interoperable and real time data processing and transference, has meant that intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) is aided by EO/IR products and systems. Indeed, for much of the past two decades, the ability of armed forces to exploit EO/IR technology such as night vision goggles and infrared imaging head mounted systems has resulted in a clear battlefield advantage for the most advanced militaries. As a consequence, Visiongain has determined that the value of the global electro optical infrared (EO/IR) systems market in 2011 will reach $7.47bn.

EO/IR technology in the form of ground, airborne and naval systems continues to be developed, with security threats emanating from border regions central to their uses. Here, militaries are seeking to cover large areas and collect masses of information and data in order to provide security against both conventional and terrorist threats.

Geographically, military EO/IR systems are becoming increasingly paramount throughout the world, as no longer is military spending dominated by only the West. Indeed, despite the continued lead by the US in terms of global military spending, and their firm position as the leading nation within the military EO/IR systems market; the growth of both Asian and Middle Eastern countries such as China, India and Saudi Arabia in recent years has meant that EO/IR systems are now demanded and utilised the world over.

The report contains 170 tables, charts and graphs that add visual analysis in order to explain developing trends within the military EO/IR systems market. Visiongain provides forecasts for the period 2011-2021 in terms of value (US$) for the military EO/IR systems market as well as for 3 submarkets that together form the overall market figure. These military EO/IR systems markets are quantified, analysed and forecast from 2011-2021, as well as 20 leading national military EO/IR systems markets. The report provides profiles of 25 leading companies operating within the market, mini-profiles of over 60 additional military EO/IR companies, and includes an interview with a market leading company within the field of military EO/IR systems, providing expert insight alongside Visiongain analysis.
