Unattended Ground Sensor Market Size, Industry Analysis Report, Regional Outlook, Application Development Potential, Price Trend, Competitive Market Share & Forecast, 2021 – 2027
Report ID: GMI2314
Unattended Ground Sensor (UGS) Market size is set to witness significant growth during the forecast period due to use of sensors for remote battlefield applications along with changing warfare nature, geopolitical issues, insurgencies across countries and rising terrorist activities.
Defense agencies across the world deploying UGS for better communication in critical military applications will drive the demand during forecast period. Prominent countries with advanced military base increasing military spending for efficient, accurate and successful military operations provides growth opportunities for UGS manufacturers. Increasing importance in military surveillance, public security and commercial applications for real time information collection and data processing will fuel the demand for unattended ground sensors market.
Advancement in sensor technology enabling faster digital signal processing with low power, small chips further increase the product demand in applications where real-time monitoring is critical. Development of passive UGS in various sizes and formats for specific applications related to security is the major outcome of long term R&D practices. Passive Infrared (PIR) sensors designed to track movements of objects in a narrow-restricted field of view are becoming popular. High growth potential of passive UGS will further boost the demand during forecast period.
UGS enabled with motion sensors to detect human intruder and differentiate between animals & human are latest advancement in UGS technology. Rising demand for these products for homeland security will support the industry growth.
however, operational difficulties and product failure will hamper the unattended sensors market during forecast period. UGS activated by false alarms reduce the product reliability which may limit the product adoption.
Companies providing UGS posses growth opportunities owing to increasing need to detect border trespassing and growing need for enhanced situational awareness for both home land security and border security.
On the basis sensor type, unattended ground sensor market is categorized in to seismic, acoustics, infrared and magnetic sensors. Seismic sensors dominate the overall market and will continue its dominance during the study period. Its growth is attributed to latest technological advancements resulting more efficient sensors with less prone to false alarms. Demand for acoustic sensors is driven by underground and underwater operation applications. Their application in missile, weapons and vehicles will support the revenue generation.
Based on end user of the product, industry is categorized in to security and critical infrastructure. Security covers public and military security whereas critical infrastructure covers industrial & commercial facilities and other utilities. Increasing demand from army for non-weapons platform sensors will boost the revenue from security segment. Moreover, high reliability of UGS for secure communication and unknown threat detection in critical operations will drive the demand for unattended ground sensors during forecast period. Tactical UGS capable of sensing chemical hazards, radiating materials presence are majorly deployed in military operations. Urban UGS are used as surveillance tool for operation including building clearing operation, caves corridor, stairwell, tunnel, culverts, sewers and in other confined space.
North America is expected to deliver a compelling growth with highest market share during the forecast timeframe. Increased application of sensor technology and installation of new sensors to reduce intruder’s instances and trespassing in border areas will fuel the product demand uring forecast period. High investment potential of U.S. and Canada to invest in UGS sensors, wireless sensor network and related products will support the industry growth in North America.
Europe will witness increased demand and will acquire substantial share owing to higher usage in public surveillance & border security.
Asia Pacific unattended ground sensors market growth is attributed to increasing military spending on sensor technology. Substantial demand of the product in border security, military surveillance & public security surveillance across the region will contribute to regional growth.
Unattended ground sensor market includes OEMs such as Northrop Grumman, Textron Defense Systems, DTC, McQ, Quantum, Harris, Textron Systems, Thales, Ferranti, L-3 Communications, Seraphim Optronics, ARA, Prust Holding, Exensor Technology, Qual-Tron and Cobham. Companies are implementing strategies for geographical expansion in developing countries and increase their market share in developed economies. Contract & agreement and new product launches are prominent strategies adopted by competitors.
