Frost & Sullivan: Subdued Growth in Traditional Force Protection Markets Offset by the Potential in Emerging Markets
Strong strategic intent and economic prowess makes Asia-Pacific a hotspot for future growth

LONDON, Jan. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The need for force protection systems increased significantly during the Iraq and Afghanistan war. With operations in Afghanistan now winding down, the demand for such systems, especially among NATO countries, is set to stabilise. In contrast, strong strategic intent and economic prowess are making Asia-Pacific (APAC) and the Middle East the hotspots for future market growth.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (, Global Force Protection Market Assessment, finds the market generated USD6.1 billion in 2012 and is estimated to reach USD7.55 billion in 2021. The research covers vehicle, soldier and base protection segments. All three segments present multiple, large-scale opportunities, with base protection expected to gross the highest revenues.

"The economic downturn is expected to minimally impact the global force protection market; force protection considerations are set to be the core of all future procurements," noted Frost & Sullivan Defence Senior Research Analyst Mahendran Arjunraja. "Decreasing troop strength and falling vehicle procurement volumes will change force structures, creating greater demand for advanced force protection systems during 2012-2021."

Subdued growth is projected in the more traditional markets of Europe and North America. In contrast, the emerging markets in APAC and the Middle East offer brighter growth prospects.

The APAC market is expected to register the highest growth – 10.2 per cent – over the forecast period. By 2015, revenues from the APAC market will surpass that of its European counterpart. The Middle East will rack up a solid compound annual growth rate of 10 per cent over 2012-2021, followed by Latin America and Africa.

"In these regions, market expansion will be promoted by intensifying threat perceptions, regional instability and booming economies," explained Arjunraja. "Such trends underpin significant shifts in competitive dynamics."
