Global Military Camouflage Uniform Market 2017-2021

About Military Camouflage Uniform

Though the concept of camouflage textiles originated in the First World War, their need was greatly felt during the Second World War and the Gulf War. Camouflage clothing is also known as the disruptive pattern battle dress because the camouflage design makes the soldiers inconspicuous in the surrounding and less susceptible to detection by enemies. Recent advancements in camouflage textiles focus not only on mimicking the environment but also protecting the soldiers from infrared rays, heat, and sweat so that the soldiers can execute operations smoothly.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Military Camouflage Uniform Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global military camouflage uniform market: American Apparel, Crye Precision, DuPont, IBENA Textilwerke, and Royal TenCate

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Cortman Textiles, DRIFIRE, Invista, Manifattura Landi, and Milliken

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One of the prominent advancements in the global military camouflage uniform market is the improvement of the functional side of the uniform, including the integration of several electronic components. Sensors, actuators, and control units form an integral part of such clothing and make them capable of interacting with the environment and have the ability to react to physical stimuli from thermal, mechanical, electrical, and chemical sources. ”

According to the report, the global military camouflage uniform market has undergone significant changes in design, color, and the nature of fabric according to the evolving battlefields. Though several defense authorities aim to develop a single camouflage pattern uniform for all the three forces of the military, the efforts are ineffective as all types of camouflage uniforms do not work for different terrains. Therefore, militaries have started manufacturing and procuring military camouflage uniforms that are specific to the topographical requirement. For example, the US Army issued an operational camouflage uniform, Scorpion W2, for soldiers deployed in Afghanistan, Europe, Iraq, and the Horn of Africa. For those deployed in the snowy regions, the army issued snow camouflage parka, trousers, and pack cover.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges faced by the military camouflage uniform market is the rate of adoption and suitability of the textile once finally put into use or practice. The development of a camouflage uniform takes 3-5 years, and a significant cost goes into the R&D. Every failure in the adoption of a certain fabric and pattern leads to considerable financial and time wastage. Over the years, such incidences have been notable and, therefore, could threaten the market. For instance, the US Army spent close to $5 billion in the development and procurement of UCP uniforms. The adoption of UCP uniform began in late 2004, and within a decade, they had issues related to failure to protect soldiers from being spotted in the Middle East. The UCP design combined gray and green blotches in a pixelated pattern and was released with the purpose of camouflaging soldiers equally in more temperate terrain and in the desert. However, on the failure of this uniform, in 2014, the US Army announced that the new Scorpion W2 would be the replacement pattern. It is expected that by the end of September 2019, Scorpion W2 will replace all of the UCP uniforms.
