The decline in Demand Owing to Lockdown Norms

During the outbreak of coronavirus, most of the shipping industry was under lockdown. Border closures across the globe did not allow shipments to either enter or leave the region. This resulted in a gradual decline of mine countermeasures across the globe which is anticipated to normalize when the situation improves. Many regions have already seen improvement in dealing with the outbreak and have uplifted lockdown norms. This has resulted in the reopening of trade in various regions. It is expected that the product demand will normalize once the global trade starts functioning at full capacity

Market Segmentation

On the basis of type, the market for mine countermeasures is segmented into landmines and sea mines. Based on the countermeasure technique, the market is bifurcated into manual and automated. Additionally, the application is classified into identifying & sensing and disposing of & destroying. On the basis of geography, the market is divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World.

Driving Factor

Maritime Regulation Mandates to Drive Product Demand

The presence of land mines across several regions requires the need of efficient systems to diffuse mines. These systems are intensively used in regions where a significant number of old landmines are still active. In the shipping industry, such measures are integrated into the ships due to maritime rules and regulations implemented by several governments. These measures are useful in detecting mines that are not always visible due to physical conditions.

Furthermore, the development of the military requires such systems to conduct various military operations. The US Navy is a prominent user of such systems and is aiding research for mine countermeasures market growth.
