A night vision device provides soldiers with greater situational awareness by illuminating the surroundings during their night-time operations, while thermal imaging help soldiers locate a target in poor visibility conditions. Earlier, night vision devices used relatively heavier components, adding weight to soldiers. However, various market players are focusing on innovation to produce lightweight products keeping their comfort in mind. For example, ACTinBlack has developed a lightweight binocular night vision device with high optical performance and an ergonomic design. Due to the increasing innovation and the rising threat of terrorist attacks at night, the uptake of night vision devices with thermal imaging is also increasing. The demand for highly advanced individual warfighter systems is gaining momentum in various regions. It is more in demand in Europe and North America, where land forces are looking forward to equipping soldiers with optical devices, personnel protective equipment, and intelligence capabilities, enabling them to perform with utmost competence on the modern battlefield. Moreover, high budget allocation for advanced military systems and equipment procurement, territorial disputes among the countries, and increasing attacks at the boarders make imagery a crucial aspect in decision-making processes. This factor is expected to raise the adoption of night vision optoelectronic devices in the military and defense sector over the next few years.

The US is the largest spending country in military technologies across the world, making North America the leading market for military technologies. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the worldwide military expenditure has witnessed a growth of nearly 4% wherein majority of countries, worldwide, have increased their military budget. According to the study, the US accounted for around 29% of the total military optronics surveillance and sighting systems market in 2020 and witnessed a decline of 3.4%, owing to the pandemic challenges that vendors faced. Other countries in this region also faced the demand & supply gap across their respective military technologies markets.
Military technology manufacturers observed drop in deliveries for new defense technologies. Together with cancelation or rescheduling of military orders and delivery, labor shortage, and several other factors, this hampered their businesses and ability to deliver substantial volumes of new products to the customers.

The world is undergoing the ‘fourth industrial’ revolution, characterized by a rapid and converging advances in multiple next-generation technologies, including artificial intelligence (AI). AI is not just undergoing a renaissance in its technical development but is also starting to shape deterrence relations among nuclear-armed states. The potential of weaker nuclear-armed states can be increased with the integration of AI into their military platforms.
In January 2021, Lockheed Martin Corp announced three new next-generation infrared spacecraft to help detect enemy ballistic missile launches. In March 2021, Elbit Systems, an Israeli defense company, launched its next-generation advanced multi-sensor payload system (AMPS NG). Team Tempest—a UK technology and a defense partnership formed by BAE Systems, Leonardo, MBDA, Rolls-Royce, and the RAF—announced the development of a new radar technology by 2035 to deliver unparalleled data processing capability on the battlefield. Technological advancements in the military and defense system are driving the military optronics surveillance and sighting systems market substantially.
Based on the device type, the military optronics surveillance and sighting systems market is segmented into night vision devices, handheld thermal imaging devices, integrated observation equipment, standalone infrared, seismic and acoustic sensors, and others. In 2020, the seismic and acoustic sensors segment accounted for the largest market share.
