Purchase Report


The CBRNE threat, at present, is increasing, but international laws have prevented CBRNE agents from being used, as yet. The highest market growth for CBRNE defense is in providing protective equipment, warning, and detection systems. Globally, governments are expecting impending terrorist attacks with CBRNE agents and are preparing for the worst. Hence, the CBRNE defense is expected to see huge demand during the forecast period.

The war preparation against terrorism will be the dominant driver for CBRNE defense on the global front, with significant focus and increase in budget in the regions surrounding Africa, Middle East, Asia- Pacific, and Europe. The use of unconfirmed chemical WMDs in the Iran-Iraq conflict will need a huge supply of CBRNE defense products and workforce for neutralization of after-effects.  Palestine city saw the usage of these chemical agents against civilians in 2009. This led to the formation of CBRNE teams by the government, in both armed forces and civilian law enforcement in the region. Recently, in April 2018, a chemical attack in Douma, east of Damascus, Syria has occurred, which killed more than 70 people, and many people became seriously ill due to the gas.

Based on the type, the chemical defense is projected to be the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period. Growth in the CBRNE market is due to the demand for protection against chemical warfare agents (CWA). These include various protective wearable, detection equipment, and chemical simulators. Use of chemical CBRN protection equipment in the civil and commercial sectors is due to the growth in chemical industries and requirement for protection against toxic industrial chemicals.

North America Projected to Lead the Market:

The CBRNE defense market in North America is expected to account for the largest share of the market during the forecast period. The region is expected to see continuous growth in demand for CBRNE defense supplies, with the United States and Canada in the lead. The United States, with a large amount of defense spending and a large amount of technological resources, is currently trying to increase its CBRNE defense capabilities and this is expected to make the share of the North American region high, during the forecast period.

Europe too is expected to witness high demand in this market, due to the rising threat of terrorist activities in the last few years. All these countries will have to spend on CBRNE protection to ensure that the CBRN tragedies are avoided. Asia-Pacific is expected to see growth in the CBRNE Defense procurement for detection of CBRNE defense threats in the forecast period. As the market in Asia-Pacific is likely to expand rapidly due to rising economies, such as China and India, and the use of this advanced technology is expected to increase in this region. Government-based organizations are redesigning and modernizing their protection against terrorist attacks, which is a move that would help the growth of the market in the years to come.
