Military Electro-optics/Infrared (EO/IR) Systems Market Size

Military Electro-Optics/Infrared Systems Market size crossed USD 5 billion in 2022 and is projected to witness over 6% CAGR between 2023 and 2032. The market growth is attributed to the growing need for Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR)


The military needs dependable and accurate surveillance, intelligence, and reconnaissance capabilities to obtain crucial information on enemy forces, topography, and other battlefield elements. This information is essential in deciding the appropriate course of action for military operations and gauging their efficacy. EO/IR sensors are a crucial part of ISR capabilities as they offer real-time situational surveillance & awareness and other capabilities. EO/IR sensors can locate & identify possible threats in a variety of lighting and weather scenarios, providing important data for military operations. The evolving modern warfare is driving the demand for ISR capabilities. Militaries use EO/IR systems to recognize & eliminate possible dangers and deal with asymmetrical challenges, such as terrorism and insurgency, propelling market growth.


Integrating an EO/IR system with standalone solutions to the necessary level is difficult. The incorporation of an EO/IR system's gun systems, ISR system, and CS41 system demands large financial investments and power sources. Military command & radar systems, control systems, and communication networks must be integrated with EO/IR systems to assure compatibility and optimal performance. This integration may be difficult and may require extensive modification & testing, restraining military electro-optics/infrared systems market growth.
