The global military sensors market is set to gain impetus from the emergence of the Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) technology. It is mainly designed for recording and monitoring various conditions at different locations. This information is given by Fortune Business Insights™ in a new report, titled, “Military Sensors Market Size, Share & COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Platform (Ground, Airborne, Naval, Space), By Component (Hardware, Software), By Application (Navigation & Communication, Intelligence & Reconnaissance, Electronic Warfare, Command & Control, Monitoring & Surveillance, Target Recognition), and Regional Forecast, 2020-2027.” The report further states that the market size was USD 25.94 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 34.58 billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.91% during the forecast period.
Russia-Ukraine War Impact
Exponential Demand for Anti-Jamming Antennas to Disrupt Industry Growth
At a time when the aviation industry is gearing to overcome the COVID-19 pandemic, the Russia-Ukraine war has disrupted the market forecast. Notably, the demand for anti-detection systems and GPS gained an uptick. So much so that European countries exhibited profound demand for secure transmission systems. Industry players have witnessed strong demand for multi-platform anti-jamming antennas being used to prevent detection and intrusion from enemies. The conflict had an indirect impact on air traffic and the raw material supply chain.
COVID-19 Pandemic to Affect Growth Stoked by Halt of Production Globally
The COVID-19 pandemic has taken a toll on the global economy. Tire 3 and tier 4 suppliers have halted their production because of the lack of workforce. Therefore, it is delaying the delivery of military sensors worldwide. Besides, the U.S. has started investing more in developing novel technologies to prevent COVID-19 pandemic. It would augment growth. Our accurate reports will help you better understand the current scenario of the industry.

Drivers & Restraints-
Increasing Development of MEMS-based Sensors to Accelerate Growth
The development of military sensors depends more on optical microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) and RF MEMS devices. These are capable of meeting special military requirements. MEMS have multiple beneficial properties. They have high reliability, low power consumption, and compact sizes. Hence, they are mainly used to develop sensors for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), missiles, battlefield tanks, drone electronics, and surveillance.
At the same time, nanotechnology-based and MEMS-based military sensors are extensively utilized in monitoring the weapon’s health and battlefield environment. However, these sensors have complex designs, which, in turn, may obstruct the military sensors market growth in the near future.
Airborne Segment to Grow Rapidly Backed by Surging Usage of Military Helicopters & UAVs
Based on the platform, the airborne segment generated 27.03% in terms of the military sensors market share in 2019. It is expected to show the highest CAGR throughout the forthcoming years because of the rising usage of UAVs, fighter jets, and military helicopters in India, China, and the U.S.
Rising Modernization Programs to Boost Growth in North America
In 2019, North America procured USD 10.05 billion in terms of revenue and is set to dominate in the coming years. The rising initiatives by governments to conduct modernization programs, as well as the procurement of 3D expeditionary long-range radar in the region, would aid growth.
Europe, on the other hand, is set to grow substantially on account of the rising usage of EOIR military sensors by the U.K. Defense Ministry. In Asia Pacific, the increasing territorial disputes between India and Pakistan, as well as the geopolitical tensions between China and India, would contribute to growth.
