Remote Weapon Station Market: Drivers & Restraints

Market Drivers:

  • Rising Demand for More Efficient Security Systems

The world’s armed forces require the latest technology to protect and provide successful outcome’s in any war and post-conflict situation. And for this, it is essential to have highly mobile and well-armed weapons. Remote weapon station act as a force multiplication provides improvements in efficient responses and delays and assists in boosting combat efficacy. Rise in demand for a better security system is anticipated to push the market growth higher. Also, higher spending on efficient security systems to boost safety and security is projected to fuel the market growth. For instance, in 2018, USA leads by being the largest military spender in the world by reaching military spending up to $649 billion. This was driven by the plans made by US President Trump in 2017 for enabling new arms procurement programs.

  • Rise in Terrorist Activities and Warfare Conditions

In recent year’s terrorist activities and regional conflicts create a virulent threat to the entire world’s security. According to country reports on terrorism, worldwide 8,093 terrorist attacks occurred in 2018. On the global terrorism index for 2019, Afghanistan ranked first with 9,961 attacks in 2018. The remote weapon station is exceptionally suitable in urban warfare as it can be remotely operated to target multiple objects.

Hence, the rise in terrorist activities and warfare conditions is expected to boost the growth of remote weapon station market during the forecast period

Market Restraints:

  • High Development Cost of Remote Weapon Station

In modern war, any country’s army needs the latest technologies to protect and provide successful outcomes however high cost of technologies often hamper the market growth. For remote weapon stations, the development cost is often associated with improvement in weapon integration, advancement to sensors, the latest electronic systems, materials, vehicle components, and others which increases the overall product cost.

Therefore, the high development cost of remote weapon station is expected to restrain the market during the forecast period.
