Overview of the military body-worn camera market

Extensive research carried out by the analysts at Technavio has shown that the global military body-worn camera market will witness steady growth and will post a CAGR of more than 4% over the forecast period. With the increasing need for transparency and accountability of police conduct, the market for military body-worn camera is anticipated to have a positive outlook in the coming years. During 2013-2016, several cases were filed against police officials for excessive use of force on public. Owing to severe backlash pertaining to Michael Brown’s execution in Fergusson, the then US president Barack Obama announced a three-year investment of USD 263 million to ensure the deployment of body-worn cameras to the police force. The investment included new body-worn cameras, training for law enforcement, and addition of more resources for the police department, which will boost this market’s growth in the coming years.

One of the latest trends gaining traction in the market is the introduction of cameras with multiple data sharing and storing facilities. Limited storage space and poor quality of the footage has been overcome by HD cameras and cloud storage facilities. For example, WatchGuard Video developed VISTA body-worn camera with a built-in memory of 32GB and VISTA Wi-Fi with the capacity to have extended video recordings. This advanced Wi-Fi extendibility and transmission feature helps in securing the video and keeping the evidence intact, and is accessible from any smartphone even in cases where the camera is lost or damaged. 

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The global military body-worn camera market is highly competitive with the presence of several multinational and regional players. These multinational players

Overview of the global unmanned sea systems market

The global unmanned sea systems market is anticipated to grow at a steady rate and will post a CAGR of close to 8% during the forecast period. The increasing number of investments in maritime surveillance capabilities will drive the growth prospects for the global unmanned sea systems market until the end of 2021. These investments enable the defense industry to incorporate more technological advancements into the production segment to ensure successful combat operations. It has been observed that several defense agencies are investing in surveillance capabilities also to enhance the combat and surveillance capabilities of their naval platforms. In addition, one of the market’s trends in the defense industry is the increasing adoption of next-generation sensors, which are smaller in size, weight, and consume less energy. The naval platforms are integrated with electro-optical (EO) and IR sensors to provide better visibility with greater range during the day and ensure superior surveillance capability during day and night respectively. Furthermore, maritime surveillance applications highly require unmanned sea systems that drive the rate of investments in the development of next-generation unmanned sea systems.

Overview of the global UAV flight training and simulation market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) flight training and simulation market to grow steadily at a CAGR of above 7% by 2021. One of the primary drivers for this market is the growing need for UAV flight simulation. The growing number of UAV and unmanned aerial system (UAS) procurements is one of the major factors driving the need for efficient pilot training. UAV flight simulation and training allows the operators to get trained in a real-time scenario. The trainees are provided with the opportunity to operate UAVs in a virtual environment, which is realistic and accurate without any risks and constraints. Additionally, it has also been noted that from military applications, UAVs have also found application in commercial applications like aerial photography, 3D mapping, wildlife protection, and agriculture. Moreover, the increasing number of military UAVs is propelling the need for effective training to UAV operators, which, in turn, is spurring the need for UAV flight training and simulation in the coming years.
