Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Emergence of armed tank containers will be a key trend for market growth. Military tank containers are used to supply basic necessities such as food, water, and medicines to armed troops regularly. These vehicles are suitable of crossing rough terrain and perform high-speed operations on rough and rocky roads. However, any potential attack on the tanks pose significant threats to the goods being transported and can prevent the supplies from reaching their destinations.”
According to the report, growing demand for tailor-made tank containers will be a key driver for market growth. Over the years, with rapid advances in the military sector amid the changing battlefield scenario, there have been simultaneous developments in the military support systems. For example, the military tank containers that were developed to enable the provision of food, water, and fuel to the armed troops for their respective use, can be custom-made to transport other goods (such as medicines and artillery) as well. With the growing concerns over the health of armed troops, there has been an increased focus on the transportation of medicines and other medical aids to military confinements, globally.
Further, the report states that one of the major challenges of operating military tank containers is the supply chain complexities they pose. The supply chain of containers is dynamic, including the sourcing of material, equipment, and personnel to the final frontier. This is largely because of the unscheduled and spontaneous movement of armed troops in emergency situations and the consequent changes in the maintenance and transportation of the reserved stocks such as vehicular equipment, ammunitions, water, medical, and ration supplies.
