Ministries of defense are procuring a range of new equipment to ensure that soldiers are more lethal and less vulnerable on the modern battlefield. There is an increased demand for weapon sights and night-vision goggles as part of soldier modernization programs.Newer companion technologies, such as unmanned ground vehicles, are being combined with optical sensors for enhanced surveillance and situational awareness capabilities. Dual-use sensors are evolving in purpose for weapons and situational awareness. They allow for targeting and surveillance sensors to be built onto a single package, providing greater efficiency and alleviating the wear-and-tear on special-purpose sensors.With the implementation of industrial policies and the establishment of indigenous defense industrial capabilities, new electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) system providers are entering the market, linking with original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) as a route to market, typically targeting local OEMs.Countries are highly price sensitive in the current economic climate, putting pressure on companies to strike a balance between performance, features, and price. The objectives of this research are to understand the current and future dynamics of the land military EO/IR systems market, identify the EO/IR solutions in use and the capabilities that they offer, and understand how technologies will impact the evolution of the market during the forecast period.
