Global Military Thermal Weapon Sights Market 2017-2021

About Military Thermal Weapon Sights

Weapon sights are imaging systems that can be fitted with handheld or vehicle-mounted weapons. Typically, the sight is a system of markers or optical devices that facilitate surveying an area to identify targets. It also assists in aligning the weapon to strike the target. A thermographic or thermal weapon sight is one that works on the thermal vision principle. These are mounted on a variety of small arms as well as heavier weapons.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global military thermal weapon sights market to grow at a CAGR of 3.54% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Military Thermal Weapon Sights Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global military thermal weapon sights market: BAE Systems, Leonardo DRS, FLIR Systems, Raytheon Company, Safran, and Thales Group.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: ASELSAN, Elbit Systems, and Excelitas Technologies.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Emergence of wireless thermal weapon sights. Evolution of sensor technology has supported the development of superior imaging and tracking systems for battlefield use. Night vision goggles, thermal weapon sights, and laser target locators are some examples. The Enhanced Night Vision Goggle (ENVG), developed by the US Army, was a major breakthrough in this regard. The army fielded its original version called the ENVG I in 2009. It was the first helmet-mounted fused goggle that combined image intensification and thermal imaging capabilities.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Growing asymmetric warfare and terrorism. Asymmetric warfare or irregular warfare is one in which the military capabilities and strategies adopted by belligerent forces are significantly different. Guerrilla warfare is a form of asymmetric warfare, which engages militant groups and a conventional army. In most cases, these groups do not occupy large, well-established bases and employ attack tactics, such as ambush and terrorist attacks, avoiding open battle. They either draw their opponent to a terrain suited to the former or launch strategic surprise attacks owing to their greater mobility.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Rapid development and deployment of smoke screens. Smoke screens are released as defensive measures by armies to cloud troops and military platforms from enemy attacks by obstructing their vision. They are produced by devices such as smoke grenades and smoke generating machines, which use chemicals like hexachloroethane to create aerosol smoke screens.
