“Electro optic and infrared systems seem to have a major share within the ISTAR vehicle electronics market, followed by navigation systems and vehicle intercom systems, which are a must for every other vehicle that is upgraded and manufactured,” notes Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Harish Balasubramanian. “On the other hand, remote overhead weapon stations (ROWS) and surveillance, target acquisition and reconnaissance (STAR) systems have the least share as their usage is limited to particular vehicles.”
Individually, the United Kingdom is the highest spender in the European land-based ISTAR vehicle electronics markets and is expected to account for a major share of expected procurements between 2008 and 2017. Germany, France, Italy and the Netherlands are the other countries expected to have a major share in the European land-based ISTAR vehicle electronics markets over the same period.
“However, keeping pace with the continuous advances in defence technology is a major challenge for participants in the European land-based ISTAR vehicle electronics markets,” says Balasubramanian. “Restricted defence budget allocations and reductions in the total number of active troops in service can be seen as restraints for the market, but are unlikely to have a major impact.”
Development of total unmanned vehicle systems is going to be a key factor in the European land-based ISTAR vehicle electronics markets in the coming years. Integration of current vehicle electronics systems and working towards Network-centric warfare would help participants sustain in the market as these are expected to dominate the future of the military operations
