The Global Soldier Modernization Market
  • What are the key drivers behind recent market
  • The soldier modernization market is going through
    rapid technological developments with major
    innovations in the fields of networked soldier
    technology and future soldier outfit
    modernization. The defense procurement agencies
    of various countries are constantly updating the
    various manufacturers on potential future
    requirements in fields of lethality,
    survivability, C4ISR, sustainability and
    mobility. This makes it absolutely essential for
    the leading military nations of the world to
    routinely invest in science and technology as
    well as research and development in order to
    ensure they maintain their technological edge.
    Given these factors, the demand for soldier
    modernization solutions will be driven by the
    continual digitization of the modern battlefield
    where many nations are fielding infantry who are
    capable of utilizing tools such as advanced
    navigation, as well as communication and
    targeting equipment. Technological advances in
    the fields of powered exoskeletons and fuel cells
    will also drive the soldier modernization market
    as leading military nations search for ways to
    minimize costs while deploying these technologies
    on the battlefield.

  • What makes this report unique and essential to
  • The Global Soldier Modernization Market
    2014-2024 provides detailed analysis of the
    current industry size and growth expectations
    from 2014 to 2024, including highlights of key
    growth stimulators. It also benchmarks the
    industry against key global markets and provides
    detailed understanding of emerging opportunities
    in specific areas.
  • Key Features and Benefits
  • The report provides detailed analysis of the
    market for soldier modernization systems during
    2014-2024, including the factors that influence
    why countries are investing or cutting
    expenditure on soldier modernization. It provides
    detailed expectations of growth rates and
    projected total expenditure.
  • A significant number of countries are investing
    in the development of their domestic solider
    modernization industry by establishing strategic
    alliances and technology transfer agreements with
    established global manufacturers. In addition to
    improving the indigenous capabilities of a
    domestic firm, this provides the foreign company
    with an opportunity to cater to a new market.
    Partnerships between countries that possess an
    advanced defense industrial base, such as US and
    India, aid the mutual sharing of advanced

The Global Soldier Modernization Market
  • Key Market Issues
  • Followed by the recent US and Eurozone economic
    crisis, numerous countries around the world have
    implemented serious austerity measures on their
    defense budgets during the last two to three
    years. This has adversely affected the progress
    of many nations soldier modernization programs
    which were underway as well as resulted in
    reconsiderations among countries with planned
    programs. The militaries have widely adopted
    troop downsizing as an immediate effort of cost
    cutting which is negatively affecting the
    economies of scale of the orders for new soldier
    kits as part of total soldier modernization
    programs. Troop downsizing can be observed among
    numerous major militaries including the US, the
    UK, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, and South
    Korea. Some of the major examples for defense
    ministries cutting down on their soldier
    modernization spending include the delays and
    scarcity of funds for the Land Warrior Program in
    the US and reduction of orders for soldier kits
    by France and the UK. France intended to procure
    32000 FELIN kits for its troops which however
    were cut by 10000 kits and similarly the UK also
    had intentions to buy 35000 FIST kits which too
    are expected to be reduced considerably.

  • Reducing the weight of soldier equipment without
    compromising protection and combat performance is
    a key challenge for the soldier modernization
    industry. Modernization of soldier systems to
    protect, mobilize and empower the soldier has
    resulted in an exponential increase in the total
    weight being carried. The combined weight of
    equipment prevents them from being agile, mobile
    and effective war fighters and lives of soldiers
    are being put at risk as heavy lifesaving
    equipment is often being left behind. Defense
    agencies worldwide are focusing on sourcing and
    integrating the most affordable, lightweight
    soldier equipment and technology to reduce the
    burden to personnel. For example, the US, through
    its Nett Warrior program, is making substantial
    progress in lightening the soldiers load while
    still delivering next generation capabilities.
    The UK defense ministry plans to reduce the load
    on soldiers from 70 kg to not more than 25 kg
    under the Reducing the Burden on the Dismounted
    Soldier (RBDS) program. Furthermore, the defense
    ministries are funding research and development
    projects which focus on reducing the weight of
    equipment, power and communication systems that
    soldiers carry.  All the capability areas such as
    lethality soldiers weapons and ammunition
    survivability and mobility body armor,
    clothing, helmet and equipment C4ISR radios,
    wearable computers and optics have to be
    integrated to reduce the weight. The fact that in
    a 36 hour patrol, the British soldier will end up
    with a 12.25kg weight solely in power, suggests
    the potential for reducing the weight of power
    systems that the soldier carries.

  • The power requirement for the dismounted soldier
    is also growing at a rapid pace with battery
    consumption at an all-time high and with the
    industry looking at alternatives, with no major
    breakthrough in sight. The average battery weight
    carried by a US Army soldier in Afghanistan is
    10lbs, although some soldiers carry between
    26-29lbs of batteries based on their battlefield
    role. A study conducted by the US Army
    Communications-Electronics Research, Development,
    and Engineering Center (CERDEC) predicted an 85
    per cent increase in the batteries required by a
    unit to operate in 2015. Another CERDEC study of
    discarded batteries in Afghanistan found 50 per
    cent of batteries had more than 50 percent of
    power left in them, highlighted an issue of
    wastage. Addressing power requirements is
    directly linked to lightening the load and
    reducing the logistic burden with the latter
    resulting in reducing the amount of convoy space
    required to ship batteries. Therefore, the focus
    is on increased energy density and reduced size
    and bulk, and that will be achieved through
    increased and improved integration.

The Global Soldier Modernization Market
  • Key Highlights
  • Most of the major militaries are undertaking
    their individual soldier modernization programs
    in order to upgrade their troops capabilities in
    response to the evolving war scenarios including
    asymmetric warfare and fighting in urban
    environments. Major European countries including
    France, Germany, Spain and Italy are implementing
    their modernization programs in a total system
    approach the new equipment is procured in the
    form of complete kits at a time.
  • This type of procurement system has certain
    inherent disadvantages or weaknesses including
    rigidity and high complexity in programs and
    slower than expected technological progress which
    together result in program delays and cost
    overruns. Delay in a single module of the program
    affects the progress of the total kit delivery.
    In order to overcome this challenge, many
    countries are currently adopting a step by step
    approach known as the incremental system or a mix
    of the former two according to their
