Transistor was first invented in 1947 and since then electronics marked its first footsteps in to the market. With the electronics market taking over in the gadget industry, it is making a huge mark in Military services as well. Electronic devices play a vital role in completion of military applications. Electronic devices provide control, guidance, communication, and reconnaissance which are key components in modern handheld vehicular applications. It helps to control the human interface with the help of portable devices. This pattern has increased the complexity of electronic equipment, especially in low volume, highly sophisticated, and dense electronic systems during warfare. These devices have advantages of being made in low cost commercial electronics. A modern soldier is believed to rely on electronics market more than ever.
Market Dynamics The most common devices are digital compasses, range finders, night vision systems, and electronic radios. Military electronics play a vital role in the modernization of the military. With the increasing threat for terrorism and increasing strain between two nations, the scope for the growth of market is expected to increase. Man-portable electronics market is expected to increase to US$6.4 Billion by 2027, representing a CAGR of 3.29% during the forecast period (2017-2027). Rapidly increasing demand for lighter but advanced man-portable electronic systems, demand for miniature UAVs, and soldier modernisation initiatives being undertaken by defence ministries across the world have stimulated demand for man-portable electronic systems globally. But the increase in the use of COTS ( commercial-off-the-shelf ) components lead to the need to improve the reliability of these components by understanding the failure mechanisms due to thermal loads, dynamic vibration, and shock through Physics of Failure (PoF) analyses. Also the size and weight should be easy to manhandle in the battlefield.
Market Segmentation (By Product)
\• Communications • Command and control • ISTAR (intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition and reconnaissance) • Imaging • Force protection • Ancillary electronics
North America leads the global market for man-portable electronics owing to technological advances and high budgets followed by Europe due to substantial expenditures on military technologies and operations carried out by the nation to counter terrorism. Asia Pacific (India and South Korea majorly) will emerge as a significant market due to modernizations.
Rapid growth in demand for communication devices, primarily on account of maritime border disputes between neighbouring countries and demand from outstation soldiers, has let to increase
in market where communications man-portable electronics segment is expected to account for the highest proportion of spending.
