Military Optronics, Surveillance & Sighting Systems Market 2015-2025
February 26, 2015
Personal Imaging Systems, Electro Optical (EO) & Infrared (IR) Imaging Technologies   Report Details   The drive towards highly advanced individual warfighter systems is currently picking up speed in both Europe and North America, where land forces are looking to equip the individual soldier with the optical devices, personnel protective equipment, and intelligence capabilities to enable them to perform on the modern battlefield. Presently, this is not a trend that is being replicated in other regions like Africa and Central and South America, as most developing markets continue to make individual off the shelf purchases rather than invest in advanced programs. Although, as a result of plummeting defence expenditure in countries like the U.S., this is unlikely to affect companies' expansion strategies, as more than a fewdefencecompanies are looking to steer their operations away from the U.S., and into new and more lucrative markets in Asia and the Middle East.Visiongainassesses that the global military optronics market will attain revenues of $5.05bn in 2015.
