The global military robots market grew at a CAGR of around 12% during 2014-2019 and is expading at a CAGR of more than 10% during 2020-2025. A military robot refers to a human-operated or automated mechanical device that is used for Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) activities on land, water and air. The robots are specifically configured for military functions and are equipped with global positioning systems (GPS), Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) systems and fiber optics tethers to transform, receive and forward information to various endpoints. They are also used for operations involving search and rescue, combat support, transportation, mine clearance and firefighting. Some of the commonly used military robots, such as Unmanned Security Vehicles (USVs), are equipped with sensors, video and thermal cameras, microphones and two-way radios. They provide backup against heavy artillery and can also be used to rescue injured soldiers or troops from the battlefield.
Global Military Robots Market Trends and Drivers:
The market is primarily being driven by an alarming increase in terrorism across the globe. In line with this, the growing requirement for efficient military robots that can perform hazardous tasks and can be deployed in life-threatening situations to minimize the casualties of soldiers is further facilitating the demand for military robots. Significant advancements in robotics and automation technologies are acting as another major growth-inducing factor. For instance, the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) has enabled the production of military robots with advanced monitoring, targeting and information gathering systems.
Governments of both emerging and developed nations are investing significantly to improve their existing security infrastructure. Initiatives are continually being undertaken to equip air, marine and land forces with advanced security solutions, such as wheeled, tracked and legged robots, wearable robots, Remotely Operated Underwater Vehicles (ROVs) and Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle (UCAV). Other factors, including increasing investments in the defense sector and the implementation of various military modernization programs, are projected to drive the market in the coming years. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global military robots market to experience strong growth during the next five years.
