Increasing Adoption of UAVs for Defense & Warfare is Driving the Growth of the Military Sensor Market

Globally, the military sensor market is expected to grow with a CAGR of 4.5% during the forecast period from 2019 to 2027. The advancement in MEMS devices drives the market's growth. Over the past decade, sensor technology has witnessed substantial deployment and use growth due to MEMS devices' large-scale implementation. These devices have led to the development of a wide array of sensors ranging from pressure measuring sensors to gyros to accelerometers and miniaturization of the sensors. As a result, multiple new avenues for the applications of the sensors have developed, which was not feasible before. This is acting as a significant driver for the growth of the market.

The increasing adoption of UAVs for defense and warfare is also accelerating the adoption of sensors across military applications. In addition, as the political tension across the countries and terrorism is increasing, the global government is leveraging advanced UAVs to enhance their defensive capabilities. However, the cyber security risk associated with using advanced sensors in military applications is the major constraint in the market's growth. Furthermore, low accuracy and complex design are also hindering the market growth.
