Counter IED Market Highlights

The global counter IED market is anticipated to garner a large revenue by recording a CAGR of ~2.5% throughout the forecast period, i.e., 2022-2030. The key drivers behind the growth of the market are internal and external security threats, technological innovations, modernization initiatives and territorial innovations for detection of improvised explosive devices (IEDs). Some other major forces which are expected to boost the market growth in the coming years are allocation of military expenditure for the equipment which help to combat the threat from IEDs and increasing attacks of improvised explosive devices. According to a report by the United Nations, in the recent years more than 4300 improvised explosive devices events have resulted to an evaluated 65,400 casualties. In the last decade, more than 360 humanitarian workers have been injured by IEDs. Moreover, IEDs are relatively cheaper as they are made of the materials which are commonly available. These devices are predicted to be heavily used in future encounters, which in turn is expected to raise the government expenditure on counter IED systems. This in turn is estimated to expand the market in the upcoming years.
