The weapons of mass destruction had been in use both by the state and non-state agencies for a very long time. It is the easy availability of chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosives (CBRNE) materials that makes weaponization and dissemination of CBRNE weapons quite simple.
Alternatively, the commercial industries also procure CBRNE defense equipment to eliminate the leaks of hazardous materials. To reduce such incidences, these facilities are integrating advanced detection technologies that are integrated with emergency techniques to eliminate the risk of outflow of hazardous materials.
In Feb 2021, the launch of upgraded FLIR identiFINDER® R440, the next-generation of its field-trusted premium handheld radiation detection system was announced by FLIR Systems Inc. This new device is expected to provide highly improved sensitivity and resolution. Thus, ensuring operators can detect and respond to radiological threats sooner and with higher accuracy.
Owing to the governments’ restrictions, the commercial market has stopped the production and supply of the equipment. However, the demand for biological protective equipment experienced a significant rise due to the COVID-19 impact. To control the COVID-19 infection, various governments employed additional biological testing centers and procured a significant number of biological protective equipment.
According to the recent market intelligence by BIS Research, the global CBRNE defense system market reported a revenue of $13.56 billion in 2019 and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 4.10% during the forecast period 2020-2025. The growth can be attributed to factors such as increasing procurement of CBRNE defense systems to counter threats, changing geopolitical environment, and growing need for early warning systems and equipment to counter CBRNE accidents.
The CBRNE weapons pose a significant threat to the environment, and the CBRNE responders need to operate in this hazardous environment. To protect themselves from these hazardous conditions, CBRNE responders equip an advanced protective wearable to operate in these environments.
The CBRNE systems are primarily being used by end-users such as civil and commercial, homeland security, and military. The military forces profit from a wide-ranging capability-based planning method, and may also depend on officials who have endured regular CBRNE training. Moreover, military forces capabilities comprise specialized niche proficiencies, namely, in medical expertise about the treatment of CBRNE casualties, identification, and detection of non-conventional warfare weapons, and decontamination.
The global CBRNE defense system market has some prominent players who are constantly adopting new strategies to enhance their market presence and increase their annual revenue. The prominent players in the CBRNE defense system market adopt strategies such as product launches, contracts, mergers, and acquisitions to expand their market presence. The companies are also involved in some other developments that include awards, demonstration, integration, and business expansions.
