This report offers a detailed analysis of the industry, with market size
forecasts covering the next ten years. This report will also analyze
factors that influence demand for EO/IR systems, key market trends, and
challenges faced by industry participants.

Surging demand for high resolution and high throughput sensors for
gaining superior situational awareness, countermeasures and
reconnaissance is the key driver for the military EO/IR systems sector
globally. In order to tackle conventional as well as newly evolved
threats, militaries worldwide are focusing on installation of advanced
sensor based systems, which can provide intel in real time for necessary

The increasing complexities in modern day war techniques have resulted
in a heightened requirement for Intelligence, Surveillance and
Reconnaissance (ISR) activities, which has resulted in several key
defense spenders to invest heavily in the research and development of
equipment such as thermal sights, infrared vision systems, and laser
target designators. The rising demand for new sighting devices as well
as wearable night vision and thermal imaging systems is therefore
contributing significantly to the growth of the global military EO/IR
systems market.
