Military Wearables Market By End-User (Land Forces, Naval Forces, Airborne Forces), By Technology (Communication & Computing, Connectivity, Navigation, Vision & Surveillance, Exoskeleton, Monitoring, Power & Energy Management, Others), By Wearable Type (Headwear, Eyewear, Wristwear, Hearable, Bodywear) - Growth, Future Prospects, And Competitive Analysis, 2019 - 2027

Growing Investments in the Military and Defense Market Leads to the Growth of Military Wearables

Globally, the military wearable market is expected to grow with a CAGR of more than 7.7% during the forecast period from 2019 to 2027, starting from US$ 3.90 billion in 2018. The military variables are the devices or equipment that are used by the soldiers during the missions or critical tasks assigned to them. The technological advancement in increasing research and development in the field of military and defense is driving the military variable market. The technology reduces troop casualties across the globe. The governments of different countries are likely to invest in highly efficient military wearables, which will eventually fuel the growth of the market.

There are various types of military wearables that are used, such as headwear, eyewear, bodywear, and others. One of the major benefits of these types of devices is that they can withstand various harsh environmental conditions such as high temperatures, can operate in water, can be used during high vibration, and others. The abilities of these wearables also drive the market's growth. Additionally, the key players are also investing in and upgrading their current technology to enhance their wearable technologies. In 2018, Lockheed Martin signed a contract worth US$ 7 million with the US Army Natick Soldier Research, Development, and Engineering Center (NSRDEC) for the enhancement of the ONYX exoskeleton.

Connectivity segment-based military wearables are expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period.

In 2018, the vision and surveillance segment was considered to be the dominant market with the largest market share of the military wearable market. Surveillance offers a crucial entry point into the study of military surveillance, as this vision and surveillance allow the defense team to keep track of a person or a place that is attack-prone. Additionally, the development of new cameras, body wearables, and tracking devices are some of the devices that are being used in the military and defense. As the usage of these devices is increasing due to their miniaturization, this is driving the market for military wearables.
