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.
Impact of Russia-Ukraine War Implication
The war crisis and sanctions have put a strain on global investment, trade, and economic activity. Therefore, skepticism and uncertainty remain prevalent regarding the conflict, its potential reach, and its longevity. Accordingly, the restoration of normal relations among partners could prove be a sign of improvement. There is hardly any sector that the war has left untouched, especially aggravating the business landscape of sectors ranging from aerospace to oil & gas. Amidst prevailing challenges, stakeholders are gearing to turn adversities into opportunities. However, soaring military aid for Ukraine could provide impetus to stakeholders. Meanwhile, it is to be noted that the relevant sanction could augment operating costs and disrupt industries.

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.
