Aerospace and Defence Military Wearables Market

The Military Wearables Market is projected to grow at a CAGR 6.15% rate from 2021 to 2026. The increasing need for soldier coordination, training rising asymmetric warfare, alleged geopolitical conflicts, and soldier modernization programs is expected to drive the market. Additionally, rising investments in the development and integration of advanced wearable technologies to overcome limitations of existing military wearables are fueling the market.The vision, surveillance and connectivity segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the military wearables market. The development of cutting-edge headsets for tactical communication, wearables computers to track enemy targets, and dismounted PNT for positioning & communication is fueling the growth of the military wearables market during the forecast period.


The bodywear segment is projected to lead the military wearables market.The adoption of high-end bodywear which can be integrated with multiple sensors and wearable products is fuelling the growth of the bodywear segment. The integration of advanced body diagnostic sensors and wireless chargers in smart textiles for health monitoring and powering different wearables is expected to drive the growth bodywear segment. Sensors in smart textiles can detect heartbeat, pulse rate, and other fitness & medical metrics and relay them to a transmitter to detect any change in the health of soldiers.


North America military wearables market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR. Increasing spending on soldier modernization programs and increased research & development activities and advancement in technologies such as exoskeleton, smart textiles, power & energy management, and communication & computing are fuelling the growth of the military wearables.
