Military Electro-Optical Infrared (EO/IR) Systems Market Forecast to Reach $8.38bn in 2014

Electro-optical (EO) imagery, infrared imaging, night vision systems and laser range finding systems provide militaries with unique battlefield capabilities. In particular, EO/IR systems are integral to the intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) and intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition and reconnaissance (ISTAR) capabilities of modern military forces. Increasingly, EO/IR capabilities are seen as a critical force multiplier, enabling a flexible deployment of targeted military force based on accurate and timely surveillance and reconnaissance.

Visiongain therefore forecasts rising global demand for military EO/IR systems over the period 2014-2024. Established military markets in North America and Europe will lead the market in terms of technology and research and development (R&D).

However, established military markets will generally achieve lower rates of growth in comparison to emerging military powers whose investment will drive global spending. In particularly, the increased affordability of EO/IR systems combined with their interoperability and mission critical functions will lead emerging military nations to integrate them into new procurement and military modernisation programmes. Visiongain has calculated that the military electro-optical infrared (EO/IR) systems market will reach $8.38bn in 2014.

What are Military EO/IR Systems?

Visiongain defines the military electro-optical infrared (EO/IR) systems market as powered systems that use both visible and non-visible light to provide visual feedback to military personnel or are integrated with other military systems. It includes three broad applications of EO/IR systems on airborne, ground or naval platforms. Visiongain's definition seeks to encapsulate the vital force multiplying functions provided by EO/IR systems as technological advancements in force projection.

Consequently, the report covers a range of EO/IR systems that are broadly subsumed under the categorisation of intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition and reconnaissance (ISTAR) capabilities. These systems include, among others, multispectral day and night imaging sensors, night vision goggles (NVG), laser rangefinders (LRF), forward looking infrared (FLIR) systems and infrared targeting pods. Visiongain's report excludes optics based seeking systems such as infrared seekers and laser seekers installed on kinetic systems and also exclude flare systems. The report also excludes unpowered EO/IR systems such as binoculars and will not include data storage of visual display systems for EO/IR platforms.
