Mountain Warfare Market - Analysis of Growth, Trends Progress And Challenges (2018-2023)
The Security Situation of the world has worsened a lot in recent times and the countries are in danger from external forces if proper precautions are not taken. Conventional Warfare does not happen nowadays wherein a large attacks from the front.. Nowadays less conventional methods are used and alpine warfare is one of them and Sometimes there is no other option but to use alpine warfare as boundaries of certain countries are mountainous. Thus we see increased focus on Mountain or Alpine Warfare which is basically combat in the mountains or on a similar terrain .This need has created massive opportunities for Defense Equipment Providers. One of the recent developments in the mountain warfare market is the entrance of T129 ATAK Helicopter. It was recently purchased by the Turkish Forces and though not meant specifically for High Altitude Warfare, it has a service ceiling of 6100 metres which can prove very useful for the sector.
Mountain warfare is a specialized art and a regular soldier with just regular training cannot cope with the demands. Special Training is more important in case of attack because in Mountain Warfare the attacking side has to have considerably more numbers and firepower as compared to the defending side that generally has the advantage of elevation. Mountain warfare is so specialized that sometimes even trained forces are not able to overcome the enemy. A case in point may be the Example of the United Sates who despite having far superior technology to the Taliban could not make much of an impact on them because of the enemy’s strategic use of their mountain base. Mountain warfare can be fought on a glacier, origin of a river, slopes where even animals suited to the conditions cannot reach, so mountain warfare requires tremendous energy , will power and most importantly the right equipment. It is said that mobility in mountain warfare performs the function of a great multiplier in combat. The Taliban has been successful in rebuffing the American Advances because of the fact that its personnel are indigenous people and are accustomed to that type of terrain, so in order to counter this disadvantage maybe focus has to also be put on recruiting personnel accustomed to those conditions. Various equipment are needed by the armed forces for this purpose like Artillery, fighter jets, Bombers, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, Mountain Gear ,Ballistic Missiles etc are some of the commonly imported Arms for use in Mountain Warfare .The Providers of such equipment are mostly of Western Countries with United States Of America a leader in the Market. The United States of America accounts for 33% of all the Arms Exports in the World. India is one of the countries whose majority of the Fighting happens in the Mountainous Regions so naturally Accounts for the one of the largest share of specialized equipment.
