The U.S. electro-optics infrared systems market size is expected to showcase considerable growth by reaching USD 7.40 billion by 2027 while exhibiting a CAGR of 6.19% between 2020 and 2027. The growth is attributable to the increasing demand for technologically advanced UAVs and the growing focus on upgrading military might by the U.S. that will drive the adoption of advanced electro-optics infrared systems. Fortune Business Insights, published this information, in its latest report, titled, “The U.S. Electro-Optics Infrared Systems Market Size, Share & COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By System (Imaging EO/IR and Non-Imaging EO/IR System), By Technology (Cooled and Uncooled), By Sensor Technology (Staring and Scanning Sensor), Imaging Technology (Multispectral and Hyperspectral), By Wavelength (Ultraviolet, Visible, Near Infrared, SWIR, MWIR, and LWIR), By Platform (Airborne, Land, and Marine/Naval), By Laser Range Finder (Airborne, Land, and Marine), By End User (Commercial and Military), and Country Forecasts, 2020-2027.” The report further mentions that the market stood at USD 5.55 billion in 2019.
Suspended EO/IR Contracts amid COVID-19 to Restrain Growth
The aerospace and defense industry is experiencing tremendous pressure due to the COVID-19 pandemic owing to sudden halt in the operations and activities. The supply chain disruption has led the EO/IR system manufacturers to postpone the development and delivery of advanced surveillance systems leading to postponement of contracts. This is expected to hinder the growth of the market to some extent. However, collaborations amongst enterprises to provide efficient solutions are likely to favor the market growth during the forecast period.The electro-optics infrared (EO/IR) system usually consists of visible and infrared sensors that can efficiently detect target hologram that aids in military application. The sensors that are integrated provide detailed information such as target size, shape, and other minute details to prevent intrusion by enemies across borders.
