Overview of the global military load carriage systems market

According to the market research analyst at Technavio, the global military load carriage systems market will grow steadily at a CAGR of around 3% by 2020. One of the primary factors contributing to the growth of the market is the deployment of improved load bearing equipment (ILBE). ILBE an advanced load carriage system specifically designed for the marines or soldiers. The load carriage system includes a modular tactical vest and an outer tactical vest, which integrates with intelligent systems and assists troops in the battlefield. Other components that are included in the system comprise assault packs, hydration system, and manpack, which are carefully designed for the swift mobility of armed troops. For instance, BAE Systems has come up with a Modular Lightweight Load-carrying Equipment (MOLLE) system, which is equipped with adequate weaponry and sustainability kit like a global positioning system (GPS), tactical assault panel (TAP), and a radio and focuses on the comfort of the army and their survivability on the battlefield.
