LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top six leading vendors in their recent global military thermal weapon sights market report. This research report also lists three other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

The growth of the global military thermal weapon sights market is attributed to the armies involving increasingly in covert operations and missions associated with surveillance and reconnaissance. Additionally, weapon and platform development and procurement plans, their upgrading initiatives, along with soldier modernization programs are factors driving the global weapons market and their associated products.

Competitive vendor landscape

The global military thermal weapon sights market is characterized by the presence of global and regional vendors. The market remains a competitive one, with all the players competing to gain the maximum market share. Rapid technological developments, stiff competition, and frequent alterations in government policies and environmental regulations are key factors that hinder the market growth.

“The companies offer a range of optronics products, which include weapon sights and night vision monoculars, binoculars, and goggles. They focus on developing lightweight, multiple configuration sights that can be easily clipped-on to day sights. Moreover, passive sights that perform effectively when exposed to direct light are being developed,” says Moutushi Saha, a lead defense research analyst from Technavio.

The vendors in the market compete with respect to product price and quality, reliability, delivery, and aftermarket service. They primarily focus on providing cost-effective and high-quality military thermal weapon sights systems for surviving and succeeding in an intensely competitive market environment.
