While chemical detection units have expanded their capabilities to include non-warfare agents such as toxic industry chemicals (TIC) and toxic industry materials (TIM), warfare agents are still the greatest driving force in this market. The Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks had a lasting impact on U.S. security and while the threat perception, which followed 9/11 has substantially subsided, the threat of the United States being attacked using chemical warfare agents continues to drive this market.

The U.S. military accounts for the largest portion of chemical and biological detection equipment spending. Lower costs for the military and uniformity across all the branches are the result from consolidation of money in fewer programs.
The Department of Defense (DoD) represents the majority of chemical and biological detection spending, and within the Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical and Biological Defense (JPEOCBD), cooperation is the way of the future. This type of consolidation locks up a vast portion of the market, which makes growth more difficult.
“The DoD is the largest purchaser of chemical and biological detection equipment,” says Frost & Sullivan Senior Homeland Security Analyst Matthew Farr. “Consolidating the majority of their programs into a few very large programs, limits the available market for other manufacturers.”
Companies must transform their products and make them integral to any organization’s arsenal. Companies must position them as time saving tools, which allow them to quickly identify an unknown substance, thereby saving countless man-hours. Security alone will not be enough to entice an organization, outside the military, to spend the considerable amount of money needed to procure these products.
“The chemical and biological detection market has slowed considerably in recent years,” says Farr. “This, however, presents a great opportunity to transform ones products and marketing strategy.”
