Top 5 Vendors in the Military Augmented Reality Headgear Market from 2017 to 2021: Technavio

Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global military augmented reality (AR) headgear market report. This research report also lists five other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

Technavio expects that the global military AR headgear market will post a CAGR of over 11% during the forecast period. Head-worn AR systems have already captured the entertainment industry and are now gaining interest in the military sector for training purposes and actual mission operations. Modern wearable simulators are much more powerful and cost effective than the traditional laptop training devices.

Competitive vendor landscape

The global military AR headgear market has fewer multinational and regional suppliers offering heterogeneous products and services. As the market is in its prototype phase, the vendors are obliged to compete based on innovative technologies and upgrading of the existing models, quality, and reliability.

“As the market is evolving with newer technologies and models in line with the evolving battlefield requirements, vendors in APAC have the opportunity to come up with cheaper product offerings that are innovative and high on the technical front. The market is cyclical in nature, and the demand for military AR headgears are directly proportional to the increase or decrease in defense spending,” says Moutushi Saha, a lead defense research analyst from Technavio.

The rising interest of militaries to equip their soldiers with up-to-date smart devices will indirectly contribute to the growth of the market, and vendors can experience a considerable rise in the demand for their products and services. Simultaneously, falling economic conditions in many regions and countries can have a significant adverse effect on the growth of the market.
