Top 8 Vendors in the Laser Defense Eyewear Market from 2016 to 2020, Announces Technavio

LONDON--()--Technavio has declared the top eight leading vendors in their recent global laser defense eyewear market report. The report covers the different classes of laser defense eyewear, which helps in the blockage of laser beams directed at the eyes that are used by the soldiers, law enforcement officers and civilians.

Technavio expects the global laser defense eyewear market to grow at a CAGR of 4.67%.

The changing nature of modern day warfare has become increasingly asymmetric in nature and includes counter-insurgency, guerrilla warfare, and counter-terrorism operations. Similar scenarios have been observed in the law enforcement domain where criminals are equipped with more lethal weapons to injure responding officers fatally. This has necessitated investments in PPE that includes face mask, boots, gloves, respirators, soft armor, and eye protective glasses.

Competitive vendor landscape

In-house manufacturing capabilities, newer technologies, product offerings, global footprint network, R&D investments, and strong client base have become the key areas to have an edge over the competitors. The global laser defense eyewear market is highly competitive, and vendors compete based on cost, product quality, reliability, and aftermarket service. It is crucial for the vendors to provide cost-effective and high-quality LPEs equipped with latest technologies to survive and succeed in an intensely competitive market environment.

“The growth of the market vendors is dependent on the market conditions, government support, and industry development. The market is marked by the presence of both international companies and small- and mid-sized ones. Most of them have implemented omni-channel strategies to stay afloat in the market and to compete with the major companies in the market,” says Moutushi Saha, a lead defense analyst from Technavio.

Mergers and acquisitions and increased collaboration with allied partners around the world will drive the global laser defense eyewear market during the forecast period. For example, in 2016, 3M Deutschland and SCHUBERTH merged their operations to develop new and enhanced ballistic head protection systems, with integrated LPE, for law enforcement and military applications in the European market. Such mergers enhance the company's position in the market and enable direct access to local customers.
