Mine & IED Detection System Market Size Valued at USD 5.9 Billion, market Grow at a CAGR Of 5.5% by 2020 -2030
The mine & IED detection system market is expected to grow at a significant pace during the forecast period due to military land clearance operations and advancement in sensor technology in the defense sector. With the rise in security threats and border disputes, there has been increased usage of mine & IED detection system for rapid area clearance and detecting both Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) and traditional Anti-Tank (AT) mines. A variety of technologies is used to detect landmines and IEDs, including acoustic sensors, animals and biological detection systems, chemical sensors, electromagnetic sensors, and hyperspectral sensor analysis, radar technology, ground penetrating radar, lidar and electro-optical sensors, magnetic signatures, nuclear sensors, optical sensors, seismic acoustic sensors, and thermal detection. As a result, it is estimated that by the end of the forecast period, usage of mine & IED detection system will rise significantly.
Meanwhile, in 2013, BAE Systems signed a contract with the U.S. Navy to provide critical mine detection sensor prototype, . However, high cost and declining defense expenses are restricting the usage of mine & IED detection system.
The mine & IED detection system market is segmented into deployment, application, detection capability, equipment, and region. On the basis of deployment, the market has been segmented into vehicle mounted, hand held, and biological based. Since the vehicle mounted detection system is much suited for high-threat search operation, the segment is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. For instance, in 2012, NIITEK signed a contract with the Australian Army to provide Husky Mounted Detection Systems (HMDS).
By application, the Mine & IED Detection System Market has been segmented into defense and homeland security. The defense sector in different countries is the major end-user of different types of mine and IED detection equipment and devices as they continuously face threats of IED blasts during cross-country operations.
By detection capability, the Mine & IED Detection System Market has been segmented into above surface detection system and underground mine & IED detection system. The above surface detection system segment is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period, as there has been a high adoption rate of this technology in mine detection. For instance, in 2016, the U.S. army signed a contract with Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) to provide a vehicle mounted integrated suite of sensors and above surface detection system technology to detect mines and IEDs. Such developments would further fuel the market growth.
By equipment, the Mine & IED Detection System Market has been segmented into sensor based, radar based, laser based, and others. The laser based segment of the market is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period.
In terms of region, the market in North America is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period. The continuous demand for mine and IED detection system and equipment by the U.S. military to tackle conflicts in the Middle East and Asia-Pacific is the major reason for the high growth of this market. Similarly, in Asia-Pacific, the increased investments in the development of mine and IED detection equipment and devices are expected to contribute to the growth of the regional market. Therefore, the global mine & IED detection system market is estimated to witness a CAGR of approximately 4% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2023.
