Global Soldier Modernization Market is projected to be valued at USD 18,290 Million by 2028, registering a CAGR of 3.70% from 2019 to 2028.
The growing military expenditure of developing countries such as China and India have significantly contributed to the expansion of the soldier modernization market. High competition owing to the presence of several players in the market has led defense companies to focus on innovation. Furthermore, the R&D activities in the defense industry and the growing demand for technologically advanced military equipment are also expected to drive the growth of the market.
Furthermore, military agencies of countries such as the US are investing in modernizing army simulator vehicle fleet to offer real-time situational awareness on the battlefield to soldiers. For example, in October 2018, Lockheed Martin Corporation signed a contract with the US Army amounting to USD 356 million to upgrade the US Army’s simulators for the tactical vehicle fleet. The contract enabled the US Army to offer enhanced situational awareness to its soldiers.
However, high costs associated with maintenance and modernization of soldier systems and stringent government regulations might hamper the growth of the market.
The growing need to upgrade legacy systems is increasing the demand for the soldier modernization market.
