NEW YORK--(Business Wire)--
Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report related to the
Defense industry is available in its catalogue. 

Improvised Explosive Devices (IED) Defence Market 2009-2018

http://www.reportlinker.com/p0100135/Improvised-Explosive-Devices-(IED)-Defence-Market-2009-2018.html

Improvised explosive devices (IEDs) are a significant threat in many conflict
zones, most notably in Afghanistan and Iraq currently. Those makeshift bombs can
be presented surreptitiously and used without warning, to devastating effect,
especially against patrolling troops. Main threats take the form of roadside
bombs, car bombs and suicide bombing. The IED countermeasures and defence market
is an important defence sector that will exhibit significant growth over the
coming years, as this new visiongain defence report shows. 

In this new report - IED Defence Market 2009-2018 - you will see how the US has
spent billions of dollars on IED countermeasures, but still IEDs are a number
one threat to US military personnel in Iraq and Afghanistan. Consequently, there
is a large market for IED countermeasures and defence, with leading and
developing countries worldwide investing steadily in those products. Over the
coming four years, the US will invest tens of billions of dollars on a large
fleet of new vehicles to counter the IED threat, with some other countries
following. Joint Light Tactical Vehicles (JLTVs) are currently being developed
to replace High Mobility Multi-Purpose Wheeled Vehicles (Humvees). There are
also significant market opportunities for IED detection and inactivation
systems, including jammers, as discussed in this report. 

Why you should buy this report

Visiongain`s IED Defence Market 2009-2018 report provides a detailed market and
industry analysis for IED countermeasures and defence worldwide, with a focus on
the overall world market and those of principal national markets. The report
focuses on the following aspects of that sector in particular: 

• The contemporary IED defence market and its challenges 

• Sales forecasts and other key metrics for the global IED defence market up to
2018 

• Sales forecasts for the principal submarkets up to 2018 

• Sales forecasts for 11 leading national markets up to 2018 

• An analysis of leading countries` IED defence programmes 

• Discussion of market drivers and restraints for the market, including a SWOT
analysis for the years 2008 to 2018 

• Discussion of leading companies involved in developing and marketing counter
IED systems, including specialised vehicles 

• Expert views on current issues and future prospects for IED defence systems,
including full interview transcripts not published anywhere else. 

Key content of the report

This new visiongain report - IED Defence Market 2009-2018 - discusses the
present and future market for counter-IED systems and IED defence. In addition
to consultations with experts in industry, this research involved a detailed
study of relevant commercial and policy documents, as well as emerging
developments. Importantly, visiongain applied techniques such as financial
forecasting and analyses of market drivers and restraints. The result is a
comprehensive market-based report with detailed analyses and informed opinion
not found elsewhere. 

Importance of IED defence systems

So far this decade, the number and magnitude of terrorist attacks have been
high, with significant losses amongst both civilians and military personnel. The
current situation suggests that IED devices - favoured by terrorists and
insurgents - are a threat here to stay. However, militaries worldwide are taking
active steps to protect forces and civilians against the significant threat of
IED attacks, especially in conflict zones. IEDs are still a formidable threat to
the US and its allies in Iraq and Afghanistan, in particular. Therefore,
counter-IED systems are amongst the most important tools for countering
terrorism and insurgency worldwide. This market sector has seen dynamic revenue
growth from 1998 to 2008, with that progress set to continue well into next
decade, as this report shows. No organisation working in explosive
countermeasures or related technology can afford to ignore the present and
future commercial opportunities in IED defence and countermeasures, as our new
IED Defence Market 2008-2018 report shows.
