LONDON, June 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Defence IQ announce their updated Counter IED Market Report 2013 is now available to download from their Resource Centre:  

"The perception of the IED as the key future threat was one of the more contentious issues to come out of this year's report," said Andrew Elwell, Editor, Defence IQ. "While fewer respondents believe it to be a critical threat compared to the data we collected for last year's report, it's clear that the IED threat will endure and continue to be a priority for governments and industry."

Report Synopsis

The report explores how the future of the global armoured vehicle market, and particularly the counter IED element of it, is likely to evolve during the period 2013 - 2023. The report is based on a survey of 190 senior executives and professionals within the armoured vehicle domain, which includes commercial and military (currently serving and retired) respondents. The analysis of the survey data has been supplemented with proprietary interviews and desktop research.
