NEW YORK, Oct. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

The Counter-IED Market 2010-2020: Systems and Technologies for Force Protection

http://www.reportlinker.com/p0315713/The-Counter-IED-Market-2010-2020-Systems-and-Technologies-for-Force-Protection.html

Improvised explosive devices (IED) have been brutally effective weapons for insurgents in Iraq and Afghanistan, and increasingly, in other parts of the world. IEDs have been blamed for thousands of deaths of military personnel and also civilians. The US and its allies have responded to the IED threat by spending billions of dollars on vehicles, equipment, personnel and training for counter-IED and explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) missions. This has provided very strong demand in recent years in the counter-IED systems market. Based on visiongain's research, global spending on counter-IED systems amounted to $7.7bn in 2009.

However, demand is expected to decline from these high levels with the continuing US and allied withdrawal from Iraq and the imminent drawdown in Afghanistan. Visiongain finds a market in decline, albeit still retaining high value due to the central importance placed on countering IEDs.

This new report, The Counter-IED Market 2010-2020: Systems and Technologies for Force Protection, provides an analysis of the global market for mine-resistant vehicles, electronic countermeasures mainly in jammers, IED detection equipment and unmanned systems purposely designed for counter-IED. This report examines corporate announcements and news accounts, policy documents, reports of relevant contracts and original expert views from industry, to analyse how the counter-IED systems market will develop during the period 2010 to 2020.

Although many systems have already been acquired, countries are expected to continue making spending on counter-IED systems a priority in the context of tighter defence spending in general.

The US has by far spent the most on counter-IED systems as it was an urgent and vital part of force protection mainly in Iraq but currently and in the near future, in Afghanistan where US operations have escalated with a surge of tens of thousands of new troops. Major Western-allied powers like the UK, Canada and Australia have followed suit in investing heavily in counter-IED systems. Countries like India, which faces its own insurgent groups who have reportedly taken to using more IEDs, is also likely to become a key market in the future.

Visiongain provides forecasts for the period 2010-2020 for projected spending in counter-IED systems in the global market and 10 leading national markets.

Visiongain also provides 2010-2020 forecasts for the global counter-IED systems market for four major submarkets:

• Mine-resistant vehicles.

• Electronic countermeasures or jammers.

• IED/mine detection systems.

• Unmanned systems used against IEDs.

A comprehensive analysis of the counter-IED market

The Counter-IED Market 2010-2020: Systems and Technologies for Force Protection report examines the market critically through the review of available information. The sources include government and company announcements, news reports, and interviews of experts in the field. Visiongain applied financial forecasting and qualitative analyses to provide a comprehensive market report with detailed analysis and informed opinion.

In particular, The Counter-IED Market 2010-2020: Systems and Technologies for Force Protection report focuses on the following aspects of the market

• Forecasts of the global counter-IED systems market from 2010-2020.

• Forecasts of four major counter-IED systems submarkets – mine-resistant vehicles, jammers, detection systems and unmanned systems – from 2010-2020.

• Forecasts of 10 leading national counter-IED systems markets from 2010-2020.

• Review of significant counter-IED systems programmes.

• SWOT analysis of strengths and weaknesses, opportunities and threats affecting the counter-IED systems market.

• You will learn the forecast sales for four key counter-IED systems submarkets from 2010-2020.

• Mine-resistant vehicles.

• Electronic countermeasures or jammers.

• Detection systems.

• Unmanned systems for EOD (explosive ordnance disposal) and counter-IED.

• You will know the predicted sales for the ten leading counter-IED systems markets from 2010-2020.

• You will understand the forces that characterise and influence the market for counter-IED systems.

• You will be able to examine 45 tables, charts and graphs quantifying and forecasting the counter-IED systems market in detail.

• You will also read original interviews from two key defence companies involved in the counter-IED systems market:

• Chemring Group Plc.

• Force Protection Inc.

• You will learn about 20 leading companies involved in counter-IED systems.

The counter-IED market is an important defence sector that will experience a decline in demand but will still provide substantial commercial opportunities. Like other defence programmes, counter-IED systems will face budgetary pressures but are so critically important that these are expected to receive robust funding support. This visiongain defence report will be valuable to those involved in the counter-IED market or who wish to take part in it in the future.
