Electro Optics Market Segment Analysis - By Platform

The naval segment of the market is anticipated to register the highest CAGR of 7.5% during the forecast period. The growth of territorial conflicts and border issues increased the risk for maritime assets of militaries, which led to increasing emphasis on surveillance, threat detection, and target identification at sea. In addition, the need for better sensor systems that are highly reliable and accurate for maritime patrol to improve sea-based situational awareness has increased. Adding to this, as the naval vessels are isolated from the terrain, it becomes important for them to possess advanced threat detection and countermeasure systems for their long-time survival from impending threats. This is driving the growth of R&D in these sea-based electro optics currently. Moreover various regions are upgrading their electro optics system. In January 2020, US Navy placed its first production order for 40 WESCAM MX-10MS electro-optical, infrared (EOIR) sensor suites from L3Harris Technologies in support of their Military Sealift Command Electro-Optical System (MSC-EOS) program. The MSC-EOS System’s primary mission is to provide enhanced visual imagery to augment existing electronic sensors. Likewise, in August 2019, the US Department of Defense announced the agreement with FLIR Surveillance Inc. for the supply, repair, and up gradation of Sea Star SAFIRE III Electro-optics Sensor Systems. The project is expected to be completed by August 2024. Hence developments as such are expected to drive the market for naval platform thereby driving the growth of Electro Optics Market share in the forecast period 2021-2026.

Electro Optics Market Segment Analysis - By End User  

Defense sector in Electro Optics market is expected to witness a highest CAGR of 7.4% during the forecast period. With the increasing demand for technologically advanced security and surveillance systems due to the increasing acts of insurgency, and growing demand for the drone-powered electro-optical systems for surveillance are some of the factors driving the market. These systems present various advantages, such as in case of low visibility, low light cameras are used as they give better performance with comparatively less power consumption and better output. Moreover, with the ongoing advancements in electro optics system, they have enabled 24-hour situational awareness, 360-degree rotation, guidance for defense gunnery, and automated object detection. Further Electro Optics systems can recognize the targets in the day or at night and in high as well as in low contrast environments. Owing to the increasing military expenditure worldwide, with the armed forces acquiring various devices such as electro optical systems and also developing new technologies in this field, thus electro optics industry is expected to witness further growth.

Electro Optics Market Segment Analysis - By Geography

Electro Optics market in Asia-Pacific region held significant market share of 36.5% in 2020, Electro optics and related equipment are being increasingly used by the armed forces in this region due to the advantages provided by these systems such as enabling fast-paced decision-making through effective imagery solution, intelligence gathering and targeting solutions. Further governments of countries such as China, India are investing heavily for procurement of these systems. In 2020, India has committed to spend $130 billion on military modernization in the next 5 years, as achieving self- reliance in defence production is a key target for the Government of India.
