Accounting for around half of total market revenues, manufacturers are strongly focused on this protection equipment. Furthermore, mobile/transportation CBRN protection equipment, and decontamination shelter systems are set to see sustained growth in their adoption in near future.

North America and Europe Hold over 50% Market Share

The US, France, and China are scaling up their military spending to brace themselves for possible disputes as well as are heavily investing in nuclear power projects to cater to ever-growing energy demand. On the back of this, North America and Europe will continue to take the lead in the global CBRN protection equipment market, with a collective share of over 60%. Meanwhile, manufacturers are also concentrating on unlocking sales opportunities in East Asia, despite the region holding a lesser share in the global market.

Manufacturers Prioritize M&A

CBRN protection equipment are gathering solid traction for application in shielding officials and masses from hazardous effects of chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear catastrophes. Governments in various countries are collaborating with the manufacturers of CBRN protection equipment in a bid to counter CBRN accidents.

For instance, the Australian Government has signed new contracts for the supply and support of CBRN defense capabilities for the Australian Defence Force (ADF). Moreover, market players are entering into acquisitions of their peers to expand their market presence, for instance, HDT Global acquired Berg Companies Inc. during the last quarter of 2019.

How Growth will Unfold
