This is attributed to the growing significance of advanced military optronics, surveillance & sighting systems in the military operations. For instance, developing as well as developed countries are investing substantially in latest defense systems to enhance their military capabilities such as surveillance and sighting for their armed forces.

COVID-19 Impact on Military Optronics, Surveillance & Sighting Systems Market

The military optronics, surveillance & sighting systems market has witnessed slight negative impact during the uncertain times due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Market players around the globe are experiencing disruption in production. Along with the production irregularities, the sector is facing rising costs of raw materials. In addition to this, logistical and economic hurdles have disrupted sales, development and manufacturing of new military optronics, surveillance & sighting systems. Aforementioned factors have led to the slight decline in growth of the market in the year 2020.

Moreover, increasing number of market players have reduced their R&D activities or cutting down R&D expenses more deeply than other expenses owing to the increased focus on transformation of existing business models and upgradation of their management processes. Also, considerable reduction in the revenue during the pandemic has pushed the defense industry players to reconsider their R&D expenses. This factor has further hampered the growth of the market. However, decline in the growth of the market is short term and market is expected to regain its growth rate from the year 2021 due to surge in demand for military optronics, surveillance & sighting systems fuelled by rising concerns of national security.

Market Drivers

Upsurge in demand for advanced and accurate surveillance systems in military sector boosts growth of the market. In addition to this, territorial disputes among the countries has led to the demand for such systems to protect borders of the countries. For example, increasing disputes among China, Vietnam and the Philippines have forced Chinese government agencies to increase its military activities in the South China Sea by conducting a series of naval maneuvers as well as exercises using advanced military optronics, surveillance, & sighting systems in March and April 2018.

Moreover, rise in demand for modern army equipment and systems to operate during adverse conditions and at night has pushed the significant demand for the field of night vision devices such as camera, scope, and goggles, further boosting growth of the market.
