NEW YORK, Jan. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

The Soldier Modernisation Market 2010-2020

http://www.reportlinker.com/p0170065/The-Soldier-Modernisation-Market-2010-2020.html

Our latest defence report - The Soldier Modernisation Market 2010-2020 - reveals the significant opportunities presented by one of the defence industry's most dynamic and growing markets. Our market study examines leading soldier modernisation programmes and systems, and explores the operational requirements which are creating global demand for soldier modernisation programmes. We assess the commercial prospects and outlook for companies offering soldier modernisation systems. This analytical report defines the current state of the soldier modernisation market and discusses its potential for growth from 2010 onwards, with market forecasting at the global and national levels.

Based on our in-depth research, global government spending in 2010 on soldier modernisation, across all subsystems, will total $546m. We analyse, quantify and forecast the global soldier modernisation market by sub-sector for command, control, communications, computing, intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition and reconnaissance (C4ISTAR), lethality, mobility, survivability and sustainability.

Around the world, there are a range of factors which are driving increased research, development, procurement and deployment of soldier modernisation systems.

Military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan and terrorist threats around the world have demonstrated the growing importance of infantry in military operations. Governments are increasingly conscious that missions of this type require up-to- date soldier systems in order to successfully fulfil mission objectives on both the tactical and strategic levels. During the next decade, the soldier modernisation industry is therefore expected to exhibit corresponding growth, driven by the escalating counter-insurgency operations and humanitarian & peacekeeping missions operating worldwide.

Despite the current economic climate restricting defence budgets - particularly in the US - governments globally continue to invest in long term programmes to upgrade infantry equipment to ensure that soldiers will continue to be able to successfully fight both conventional and guerrilla enemies. Military decision-makers are also developing operational strategies to benefit from the latest infantry technology. The intention is to produce next generation combat soldiers with improved C4ISTAR capability to integrate into the modern network centric warfare environment and thereby deliver better coordinated military operations.

Within this report we analyse, quantify and forecast the market for the following sub-sectors of the soldier modernisation market -

- C4ISTAR

- Lethality

- Mobility

- Survivability

- Sustainability

We examine the combination of factors that are driving the increased investment in soldier modernisation by armed forces around the world. The upgrading of soldier systems is expected to increase steadily over the next decade, despite the economic situation and downwards pressure on overall defence budgets.

The increasing investment in soldier modernisation systems, particularly in Europe and NATO, has resulted in the global soldier modernisation market becoming one of the sub-sectors of the defence industry that is least restrained by the global financial crisis. We expect the global soldier modernisation market to grow strongly with significant rewards for successful companies.

How much are individual countries planning to spend on soldier modernisation programmes and systems between 2010 and 2020? How are new technologies changing the nature of infantry warfare? Who are the leading companies providing solider modernisation systems? Where are the growth opportunities over the next decade - in which geographical region and with which technology? These critical questions and many more are definitively answered in this comprehensive report.

The Soldier Modernisation Market 2010-2020 report examines the global market for soldier modernisation programmes and systems from an impartial standpoint. We offer a review of contracting activity, and products and services, based on our analysis of information obtained from multiple sources. The report draws on official corporate and governmental announcements, media reports, policy documents, industry statements and expert opinion.
