Visiongain Publishes Infrared Search & Track (IRST) System Market Report to 2031

24 March 2021

Visiongain has published a new report on Infrared Search & Track (IRST) System Market Report to 2031: Forecasts by Platform (Airborne, Naval, Land, and Others) by Component (A Scanning Head, Processing & Control Electronics, and Display) by End-User (Aerospace & Defense, Civil). PLUS, Profiles of Leading Pharma Contract Manufacturing Companies and Regional and Leading National Market Analysis. PLUS, COVID-19 Recovery Scenarios.

Global Infrared Search & Track (IRST) System market was valued at US$ xx billion in xx and is projected to reach at a market value of US$ xx billion by 2031.

COVID-19 Impact on Infrared Search & Track (IRST) System Market
During the current pandemic scenario, the demand for advanced tech to counter any conflicts or cross-border attacks, the demand for Infrared Search & Track (IRST) System systems is anticipated to grow. The Infrared Search & Track (IRST) Systems help in undertaking stealth missions, which makes their use quite imperative in specific tasks.

Market Drivers

Need for Enhanced Situational Awareness
Infrared search & track (IRST) is a general case of forward-looking infrared (FLIR), which means from forward-looking to gaining all-round situation awareness. Such systems are untraceable (i.e., they use a thermographic camera). They do not give out any radiation of their own, which is quite common in radar systems. This gives Infrared search & track (IRST) systems the added advantage as they are difficult to detect. This feature is quite advantageous for military missions.

Enhanced Security and Immunity Over Radars
IRST offers enhanced security and immunity over radars. This capability is of utmost importance in carrying out stealth operations. With IRST, airplanes can fly in dangerous skies and engage enemies without using radar, which eliminates the risk of their detection and hence the attack. The fighter aircraft generally carry the IRST systems instead of the radar in specific situations such as shadowing other aircraft or executing a ground-controlled interception (GCI). The enhanced security and immunity over radars are anticipated to boost the global Infrared Search & Track (IRST) System market during the forecast period.

Market Opportunities

Increased Focus on Military Modernization
Infrared Search & Track or IRST systems offer significant advantages over traditional radar systems, such as resistance to jamming, long detection ranges, and passive operation. Besides this, they cannot be jammed as easily as the radar and they also offer much better angular resolution with respect to the radar. For specialized operations. ISRT systems can be really helpful and are gaining much popularity as militaries upgrade themselves.

Increased Usage in Aerospace Industry for Outer Orbital Mechanized Rovers
The infrared search and track (IRST) systems are able to search and track outer orbital mechanized rovers as they allow effective communication even in adverse weather conditions. This advantage associated with infrared search and track (IRST) systems is expected to bolster the growth of the infrared search and track (IRST) systems market during the forecast timeframe.

Competitive Landscape
Agreements with the governments has been the key growth strategy adopted by the major players in the IRST system market. Some of the companies profiled in the report include Leonardo S.P.A., Thales Group, Rheinmetall AG, Aselsan A.S., Safran S.A., Lockheed Martin Corporation, Northrop Grumman Corporation, HGH Systèmes Infrarouges, Tonbo Imaging Private Limited, and Hughes Network Systems LLC.

• On March 2019, Boeing and Lockheed Martin announced their partnership to manufacture stealth infrared search and track (IRST) avionics for F-15C jet fighter.
