Why was the report written?
“The Global Soldier Modernization Market 2012–2022” offers the reader detailed analysis of the global soldier modernization systems market over the next ten years, alongside potential market opportunities to enter the industry, using detailed market size forecasts.

What is the current market landscape and what is changing?
Rapid technology advancement in the soldier modernization domain has rendered earlier equipment obsolete. Advanced radio frequency (RF) and microwave technology in sensors, precision weapons and tactical communications have ushered in a new era in C4ISR soldier modernization equipment while the majority of expenditure on lethality based equipment is focused on developing combat overmatch capabilities for the individual soldier and small combat unit while reducing soldier load. The mobility based segment has evolved rapidly over the years to facilitate functions of an armament carrier, logistics vehicle, ambulance, command and control (C2) vehicle, and as a platform for a wide variety of other army systems. Survivability and sustainability based soldier modernization systems are undergoing technological advancements and are expected to account for larger portions of the market in the future.

Key Features and Benefits
The report provides detailed analysis of the market for soldier modernization systems during 2012–2022, including the factors that influence why countries are investing or cutting defense expenditure. It provides detailed expectations of growth rates and projected total expenditure.

Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, Boeing, BAE Systems, Rheinmetall Defence Electronics, Samsung Thales, Harris Corporation, General Dynamics, Cassidian, Safran Group, Rafael Advanced Defense Systems, SAIC, Elbit Systems, Bren-Tronics, EADS, ABSL Power Solutions, China North Industries Corporation (NORINCO).

Countries across the world are procuring equipment such as helmets with visual sensors, chemical and biological sensors, digital radios and hand-held computer displays, to enhance the capabilities of their soldiers. This has led to a number of joint ventures and teaming agreements so as to aid in technology transfer. In addition to improving the indigenous capabilities of domestic defense firms, this provides the foreign original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) with an opportunity to cater to a new market.

Key Highlights
North America to continue to dominate the market
Despite budget cuts, North America is expected to account for the largest share of the total global expenditure on soldier modernization systems with a 33% share in the forecast period. High demand in the region is primarily driven by the country’s procurement of latest technology in C4ISR and Mobility based soldier modernization systems.

Need for troops which are less in number but more effective
The leading military nations of the world have embarked upon a new strategy which envisages cutting down the number of troops while at the same time increasing the effectiveness of smaller, more mobile units. This vision has evolved gradually as major military nations have recognized the need to modernize their infantry in order to fight modern asymmetric warfare.

Very high demand for C4ISR ,Mobility and Survivability based soldier systems
With the spread of more and more assymetric warfare around the globe, there has been a rise in demand for troop mobility and personnel protection systems such as fuel tank protection kits, force protection systems and components, situational awareness (ODS-SA) vehicles and mine resistant ambush protected (MRAP) vehicles.
