FAIRFIELD, Conn., Jan. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Maxtech International, Inc. is releasing the 2013 edition of its market research report on military infrared detectors and systems markets (Vol. IRW-M).
Military budgets worldwide are under pressure - especially in the U.S. and Europe where budget deficits are forcing reductions in military expenditures.
To the extent that infrared imaging systems are part of the platforms (aircraft, armored vehicles and ships) that are suffering these cutbacks, they are also subject to spending cuts. However, infrared imaging/night vision provides such a powerful force multiplier that certain segments of this market continue to do well. Among these are: Persistent Surveillance, High Definition (HD) Systems, moves to High Operating Temperature (HOT) cooled detectors and systems, uncooled systems, growth in SWIR systems.
Despite this, in the U.S., the timing of procurements in certain programs (including 2(nd) Gen cooled systems and some uncooled systems) is leading to a slowdown. At the same time, growth in military infrared continues rapidly in parts of Asia (India and China) and the Middle East.
