Selbyville, Delaware,, June 26, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

The military electro-optics/infrared systems market valuation is anticipated to reach USD 15 billion by 2032, as reported in a research study by Global Market Insights Inc.

As per the report, consistent technological breakthroughs leading to the development of highly capable and integrated EO/IR systems that provide enhanced situational awareness and targeting capabilities for military operations will drive business growth.

A noticeable rise in asymmetric threats and the need for effective detection and identification of hostile targets has prompted governments worldwide to invest in defense modernization programs. For instance, in June 2022, the Defence Acquisition Council of India approved military modernization projects worth Rs 76,390 Cr (~USD 9.3 billion). This includes the Navy's next-gen Infantry Combat Vehicle and the Air Force's Light Combat Helicopter. Increasing government support, in line with the rapid deployment of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and drones, will contribute to the demand for EO/IR systems in military applications.

Based on product, the military Electro-optics/Infrared systems market size from the lasers segment will reach over USD 3 billion by 2032, claims the report. Military EO/IR lasers offer precise target designation and illumination, enhancing the effectiveness of guided munitions and laser-guided systems, thus, finding extensive usage in military and defense applications. They provide a non-lethal deterrent capability and can be used for dazzle and incapacitation purposes. Besides, the increasing usage of EO/IR lasers in countermeasures, remote sensing, and intelligence gathering makes them valuable tools for military operations, driving product demand.

With respect to application, the military Electro-optics/Infrared systems market from situational analysis segment will grow significantly over 2023-2032. EO/IR systems provide real-time and comprehensive visual information, enabling military personnel to monitor and assess the battlefield effectively. These offer day and night vision capabilities, enhancing awareness in low-light or obscured conditions. Further, the integration of advanced sensors and image processing technologies allows for enhanced target detection, tracking, and identification, contributing to improved situational awareness for military operations.

Asia Pacific military Electro-optics/Infrared systems market will cross USD 3.5 billion by 2032. This growth can be attributed to the need for border and coastal surveillance. Many countries in the Asia Pacific, such as India, South Korea, and China, have extensive borders and coastlines. These need to be surveilled for safety and security purposes, where EO/IR systems are significantly useful. This apart, technological innovations, developments in military equipment, and the growing use of unmanned systems in the region will drive the market growth.
