Market Overview

The Deployable Military Shelters Market was valued at USD 933.48 million in 2021 and is projected to grow with a CAGR of over 1% during the forecast period (2021-2031).

COVID-19 did not have a significant impact on the deployable military shelters market. However, in certain countries, the military deployed temporary shelters to be used as temporary COVID-19 medical centers for quarantines and treatment purposes.

The evolving battlefield requirements have necessitated an increase in military units' deployment in far-away warzones and various diverse terrains both for training and strategic operational purposes. Unrest across the borders with neighboring countries is generating the need for deployment of thousands of soldiers, which generates the need for portable military shelters.

Significant investments are directed towards developing shelters with a smaller number of component parts, less weight, high tensile strength, and enhanced ease of fabrication and assembly. Advancements in designs and material technologies have resulted in the development of military shelters that are easy to transport and deploy and have higher tolerance to extreme environments, which is further expected to accelerate the growth of the market in the coming years.

Scope of the Report

Deployable military shelters are temporary shelters used by the militaries in various terrains and geographies in the absence of fixed military bases with permanent shelters. They are used primarily as protective structures for both personnel and vehicles. Different types of shelters, such as medical shelters, field shelters, vehicle shelters, and deployable shelters that are custom-built on-demand for different military applications, are included in the study. The deployable military shelters market is segmented based on type into tents, containers, and other types. The others segment includes the details on the market for the relocatable storage units, deployable hangars, and custom-built temporary military housing units, among others. The report also covers the market size and forecasts for the deployable military shelters market in different regions. The market sizing and forecasts have been provided in value (USD million).

Key Market Trends

Other Types Segment Accounted for a Major Market Share in 2021

The other types segment currently has the highest market share and is expected to continue its dominance during the forecast period. The segment includes relocatable storage units, deployable hangars, and custom-built temporary military housing units. Deployable hangars are fully demountable and relocatable. Therefore, they are designed to have the shortest assembly time. In most cases, all the materials can be reused, both structure and envelope, in the next assembly of the building. VALDEMAN is one of the leading suppliers of deployable hangars for the United Nations, NATO, US Air Force, Royal Australian Air Force, Belgian Air Force, Canadian Air Force, Chilean Air Force, Indian Air Force, etc. Besides being a prime supplier of deployable hangars, the company also offers full accessory packages, including aircraft and personnel doors, lights, ventilation, and HVAC systems. In May 2021, Saab received an order from the Bulgarian Air Force to deliver Deployable Maintenance Facility (DAM). The DAM was planned to be deployed at multiple air bases throughout Bulgaria to complement to existing permanent infrastructure. Such developments are expected to propel the growth of the segment during the forecast period.

Europe Region is Expected to Witness the Highest Growth During the Forecast Period

The European region is expected to grow with the highest CAGR during the forecast period. European forces are strategically deployed by NATO partner countries in different peacekeeping missions around the world. For instance, in 2019, the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) provided a contract worth GBP 9.5 million (USD 12.8 million) to Rubb UK for the procurement and refurbishment of military shelters. The company was awarded the contract to provide services over a period of two years. Temporary shelters are used by the defense forces to set up medical camps and assist the wounded in war zones or affected areas during a pandemic. The COVID-19 outbreak has triggered a multifold increase in demand for deployable military shelters. In this regard, in March 2020, a military field hospital was set up by the French Army to relieve the pressure on the ICU of the main hospital in the eastern French city of Mulhouse. The field hospital could admit up to 30 patients in intensive care. Similarly, several field hospitals have cropped up in Russia as the infection rate increased in the country. For instance, in May 2020, the Russian military opened a field hospital with a 100-bed capacity to treat COVID-19 patients in the North Caucasus region of Dagestan. A similar facility was also set up in the Murmansk region. Such developments propel the growth the market in the coming years.

Competitive Landscape

The deployable military shelter market is highly fragmented and is highly competitive with competition from military fabric manufacturers, military equipment manufacturers, sports gear manufacturers as well as extreme weather shelter manufacturing companies. UTS Systems, General Dynamics Corporation, AAR CORP., Saab AB, and HDT Global are some of the market's major players. The smaller players that have risen due to the spike in demand in 2020 are expected to remain in the market for another 3-4 years with only about 50% of these players surviving beyond the 5-year period when profits start to decline, and costs start to catch-up. Major players planning to expand their presence globally should wait out these next 2-3 years to acquire small domestic firms or form JVs and partnerships with these companies to reduce risks and costs by taking the dominant role in the business. The manufacturers of deployable military shelters are continually looking for ways to develop shelters that can withstand a wide range of harsh weather conditions, keeping in mind the various defense authorities' certification requirements across the world. This will help the manufacturers to gain new contracts from the militaries and expand their market share during the forecast period.

Recent Developments

  • In June 2021, Alaska Structures announced that the company will supply the United States Africa Command (AFRICOM) with military-grade field hospitals. The company was expected to provide 30-bed and 40-bed medical facilities equipped with negative pressure isolation facilities and other life-saving medical equipment to provide high care and treatment for COVID-19 infected patients.
  • In May 2020, Weatherhaven announced that the company has provided the new Headquarters Shelter System to aid the Canadian armed forces, replacing the older Tent Expandable Modular System (TEMS) headquarters.
