Counter IED Market Trends

  • Innovations in IED Detection and Technological Advances Probable to Accelerate Market Growth

The Counter IED market CAGR is being propelled by primarily focusing on three factors—detection, protection, and neutralization—the defense sector continues to diminish various IED dangers. The development of military vehicles has advanced considerably due to the pressing necessity to confront the looming IED danger. Because of the harsh terrain and ambiguity, customized infantry fighting vehicles (IFVs) and armored personnel carriers (APCs) rapidly supplanted conventional defense vehicles (APCs). Players in the counter-IED market are constantly focusing on innovation and deploying efficient counter-IED measures and solutions as a result of the evolving nature of the IEDs used by terrorist organizations.

Furthermore, the demand for counter-IED solutions has been steadily increasing as a result of an increase in IED threat events around the world, particularly in conflict zones like Iraq, Afghanistan, and other regions of the Middle East. Furthermore, in order to reduce losses, the defence industry across the globe is devoting more resources to identifying the various IED threats. 

For instance, between 2018 and 2019, China's military spending increased by more than USD 8 billion. The predicted value in 2019 was higher than USD 260 billion. It is anticipated that by the end of 2030, China's growing emphasis on becoming a prominent  commerce hub will also help the APAC market flourish. Driving the counter IED market's revenue in the process.

Counter IED Market Segment Insights

Counter IED End-Users Insights

The counter IED market segmentation, based on end-users includes homeland and security military. Due to increasing military spending and the urgent need to combat cross-border terrorism, the security military sector continues to be the main demand driver for C-IEDs. Over the next five years, it is projected that the market for C-IEDs in homeland security would expand more rapidly thanks to increased funding from governments of numerous nations, particularly China.

Counter IED Capability Insights

The counter IED market data is divided into two capabilities countermeasure and detection. In 2022, the detection category held the largest share in the market. The detection system is further subdivided into above-surface detection, underground mine and IED detection, stand-off IED detector, and remote IED detection equipment. Similarly, the countermeasure system is divided into jammers and neutralizers. Detection is expected to remain the dominating capability type in the market over the forecast period. It is the primary revenue generator for the market, with devices like as metal detectors, x-ray scanners, robotic systems, and counter-UAS. With jammers gaining market traction, countermeasures are likely to be the fastest-growing capability class.

Counter IED Deployment Insights

The counter IED market segmentation, based on deployment, includes airborne, vehicle-mounted, handheld, ship-mounted and others. Vehicle-mounted C-IEDs are further classified as armored vehicles, unmanned ground vehicles, and others. Similarly, ship-mounted C-IEDs can be converted into naval and unmanned maritime vehicles, and airborne C-IEDs can be converted into aircraft, aerostats, and unmanned aerial vehicles. The vehicle-mounted sector is predicted to maintain its unrivaled lead until 2030. C-IEDs mounted on vehicles can be employed for detection, destruction, and/or jamming. They may have various subsystems, allowing a single vehicle to perform multiple functions (detection and countermeasure). All of the major players are capable of providing vehicle-mounted C-IEDs.

Counter IED Regional Insights

By region, the study provides the market insights into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World. Over the course of the projection period, North America is anticipated to be the largest market for C-IEDs. The United States is the market's growth engine thanks to large military spending and a greater emphasis on the deployment of emerging C-IED technology. The US Army, Navy, and Marine Corps, who have numerous long-term contracts with significant industry partners in place, are the main consumers of C-IED equipment.

The Sierra Nevada, which translates to "mountain range covered in snow," is a group of mountains in Spain's Andalusian province of Granada. It contains Mulhacén, which rises 3,479 meters (11,414 feet) above sea level and is the highest peak in mainland Spain. In a region along the Mediterranean Sea that is mostly recognized for its mild temperatures and ample sunshine, it is a well-liked tourist attraction because of its high peaks, which make skiing possible in one of Europe's most southern ski resorts. The city of Granada, as well as Almera and Málaga, are located at its slopes. In June 2020, The Degraded Visual Environment Pilotage System (DVEPS) for the U.S. Special Operations Command OCOM and particular U.S. Army aircraft was procured, delivered, and supported by Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC) under a production contract with multiple delivery orders.
