Technavio aerospace and defense research analysts highlight the three key factors that are contributing to the growth of the global commercial aviation and military headset market:

  • Changing nature of warfare
  • Emphasis on better battlefield communication
  • Focus on pilot comfort

Changing nature of warfare

The essence of warfare has changed significantly over the past decade. Defense authorities today are focusing on developing digital battlefields so that soldiers can stay connected to each other along with their commanders. Present day soldiers are trained highly on the usage of various gadgets such as communication devices, navigation gadgets, upgraded weapon sights systems, and exoskeleton systems. This transforms common soldiers into high-tech warriors.

According to Moutushi Saha, a lead defense research analyst from Technavio, “Vendors are trying to make new military headsets that are lighter, ear-protective, and usable in extreme environments. This kind of upgradation will help the soldiers to enhance their performance and help in delivering effective military operations. Countries like the UK, the US, and France are on the top list to significantly invest in the development and procurement of such devices.”

Emphasis on better battlefield communications

Poor networking on the battlefield can lead to dire consequences, therefore, a proper communication in the warzone or the battlefield is required to accomplish the mission successfully. During high-risk operations, the presence of strong communication is mandatory as a continuous flow of information is needed to be maintained from both the sides. Therefore, military forces in various countries are provided with advanced communication headsets with integrated microphone and speaker systems, which offer high-quality communication and help conduct smoother military operations.

“The demand for the GPS-based machine to machine and wireless headsets is growing as they help in coordinating various military operations and exercises. This has led many countries to adopt such technology for performing various critical operations. The armed troops of the US Army are fitted with Blue Force Trackers (BFT), which helps the commander to track the movement of individual soldiers by providing a real-time feed of the soldier's location,” adds Moutushi.

Focus on pilot control

Noise fatigue is a very problematic issue that is faced by the aircraft pilots. Pilots are exposed to high-intensity noises from the engines, fuselage, exhaust, and propellers for extended periods of time. This causes serious chronic noise-related problems called tinnitus. Noise related issues may result in misinterpretation of information provided from the ground station, leading to inconveniences in flights or even accidents. Such adversities have prompted airline companies to provide comfortable and protective headsets for their pilots.
