Thus, such high investments by the global mine detection system market players in the development of advanced mine detection systems to ensure enhanced efficiency for detecting both metallic and non-metallic mines are driving the global market. A substantial portion of the budget allocation is defined toward the procurement of countermeasure technologies, including mine detection systems. These factors have influenced the procurement of mine detection systems and thus drives the mine detection system market growth.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Mine Detection System Market 

The COVID-19 crisis has adversely affected various industries worldwide, and the global economy faced a slump in 2020 and 2021. The disruptions in the supply chain of mine detection system components discontinued the production of mine detection systems during the initial months of the COVID-19 outbreak. Moreover, several military equipment contractors observed a drop in deliveries for their respective products, cancelation or rescheduling of military orders and delivery, and labor shortages that hampered their businesses. The increase in order backlogs and disruptions in the supply chain during the initial outbreak led to a decline in the revenues of the mine detection system market. However, the North America comprises the largest spending country on military technologies i.e. the US. The significant year-on-year investments toward military technologies by the US government are major reasons behind the continuous growth of military systems. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the US military expenditure accounted for US$ 778 billion, as per SIPRI. However, the military forces globally restarted procuring mine detection systems from the US manufacturers, which stabilized the manufacturer’s businesses. This ultimately reflected significant growth in the market in the US in 2020. Further, Canadian market players also experienced a rise in demand for their product from mid Q3 of 2020. This reflected marginal growth in the country’s mine detection system market.

Rise in Procurement of Mine Detection Systems Propels Mine Detection System Market Growth

The frequency of armed conflicts between countries is increasing at an alarming rate, prompting a higher need for nation's defense forces to strengthen their security measures. A substantial portion of the budget is dedicated to procuring countermeasure technologies, including mine detection systems. These factors have influenced the procurement of mine detection systems. A few of the major contracts are as follows:

  • According to the US Defense Department contract release in October 2020, the US Naval Surface Warfare Center's Panama City Division has given Arete Associates a US$ 18 million contract for supplying more COBRA Block 1 systems.
  • In August 2021, the Indian Ministry of Defence (MoD) published a request for information (RFI) to lease or procure three to four mine countermeasure vessels (MMCV) for the Indian Navy from a foreign country.

Thus, the above-mentioned investments and initiatives to procure new and advanced mine detection systems across various military and naval bodies are fueling the growth of the global mine detection system market.

Deployment-Based Insights

Based on deployment, the mine detection system market is bifurcated into vehicle mounted and handheld. The handheld segment held a larger market share in 2021. Handheld devices are popular mine detection sources with a huge demand due to their low cost and high usage by homeland security. The significantly high demand for such detectors constantly drives the mine detection system market. AN/PSS-14, a handheld mine detector manufactured by L3Harris Technologies, Inc., and AN-19/2 from Scheibel Corporation are popular handheld mine detectors. Over the decades, the military forces and homeland security teams have been using these detectors. It is anticipated to drive the mine detection system market as the end users will continue to procure these detectors in the coming years.

Players operating in the mine detection system market are mainly focused on the development of advanced and efficient products.

  • In 2021, Raytheon Missiles & Defense demonstrated the AN/AQS-20C sonar mine-hunting system in an exercise at Narragansett Bay in Rhode Island for the UK and other potential international customers.
  • In 2020, Northrop Grumman Corporation has started to manufacture components of the AQS-24B towed mine hunting system with Marand Precision Engineering in Australia, at their Moorabbin, Victoria facility.

The mine detection system market is segmented on the basis of deployment, detection capability, and end user. Based on deployment, the market is bifurcated into vehicle mounted and handheld.

Frequently Asked Questions

With the rising security threats and border disputes, there has been an increase in the usage of mine detection systems for instant area clearance and detection of mines. Blast mines, directional fragmentation mines, bounding fragmentation mines, omni-directional fragmentation mines, anti-vehicle mines, butterfly mines, and anti-personal mines are some of the types of landmines. Sea mines include ground (bottom), moored, and contact (floating) mines. These mines are placed to destroy submarines or surface ships. Thus, the military forces, along with border security forces and paramilitaries, are procuring technologically advanced mine detectors from various manufacturers. This factor is catalyzing the mine detection system market.
Mine countermeasures are undergoing a major transformation, owing to the evolution of disruptive technologies, from traditional mine hunting with grey ship mine hunters to unmanned autonomous vehicle utilization for the same. Unmanned and autonomous systems that operate above and below the water have steadily progressed over the previous decade, reaching degrees of maturity that are now capable of being used as a mine detector. Ensuring the safety of naval personnel and keeping them out of casualty are the most critical aspects of mine countermeasures. The use of unmanned and autonomous technologies is a huge step forward in this arena. This has influenced companies such as Thales group to offer mine detection products that can be easily integrated with autonomous vehicles. Thus, such factors are expected to contribute to the growth of the global mine detection system market over the forecast period.
Based on deployment, the mine detection system market is segmented as vehicle mounted and handheld. The demand for vehicle mounted system is increasing at a high rate because of the growing demand from defense forces. The defense forces are using UAVs, UGVs, and UUVs to locate mines on ground, underground, and underwater. Handheld devices are very common mine detection sources and has a huge demand due to low cost compared to vehicle mounted devices and high usage by homeland security.
Based on detection capability, the mine detection system market is segmented as above surface and underground. The above surface land mines are observing a decline because of advancements in landmine technologies and thus decrease in above surface land mines leads to limited scope of above surface mine detection systems. The majority of detection systems are underground mine detection because of the increase in underground mines. Also, underwater mine detection is gaining prominence because of increase in naval warfare.
North America dominated the mine detection system market in 2020 and is also expected to continue its dominance throughout the forecast period. The growth of the mine detection system market in North America is attributed to the rise in investments in mine detection technologies, owing to the increasing terrorist activities. Well-established players in the mine detection system market in North America include L3Harris Technologies, Inc.; Northrop Grumman Corporation; Raytheon Technologies Corporation; and Lockheed Martin Corporation.
Mine casualties have been rising over the years, risking the lives of several army personnel across the globe. For instance, according to a report published by Landmine Monitor in 2021, the mine casualties increased by 20% in 2020 compared to 2019, with more than 7,000 people being killed across 54 countries. Thus, due to the rise in the number of mine casualties across the globe, government bodies started investing in alternate ways of mine detection. This has influenced the use of honeybees for mine detection. One of the benefits of bees is their ability to detect bombs. Researchers in countries like Croatia have spent years mastering how to utilize bees as landmine locators since they can pick up the fragrance of explosives with their antennae.
