The ground sensors consist of various sensor technologies that are packaged to deploy and perform the given task such as target detection, location, and recognition. The ground sensors are generally small, robust, and comes in low cost and sustains in the field for extended periods after the deployment. These sensors are capable to transmit target information back to the remote operator. These ground sensor devices are used to perform the various mission tasks that includes border patrolling, surveillance, perimeter defence, and situation awareness and target acquisition. The mindfulness and utilization of latent sensor advancements for remote combat zone applications has significantly expanded in the course of the most recent couple of decades.

Market Scope and Structure Analysis

Increase in security and defence expenditure for the country, war disputes between enemy countries, and surge in instability across the world are the major factors that boost the demand for ground sensors. The other factor that supports the growth of the ground sensor market are its robust design and reliable communication links. In addition, advancement in sensor technology enabling faster digital signal processing with low power, small chips further increase the product demand in applications where real-time monitoring is critical. Development of passive UGS in various sizes and formats for specific applications related to security is the major outcome of long term R&D practices. Passive Infrared (PIR) sensors designed to track movements of objects in a narrow-restricted field of view are becoming popular. High growth potential of passive UGS will further boost the demand during forecast period.

However, operational difficulties and product failure will hamper the sensors market during forecast period. UGS activated by false alarms reduce the product reliability which may limit the product adoption. The major factor that obstructs the growth of the ground sensors market is the limited range of identification and the detection. These limitations are majorly due to the background noise or weather noise. However, the use of several sensor ground sensor devices located in the vicinity of one another can achieve continuous monitoring of detected targets.

COVID-19 impact analysis

  • COVID-19 pandemic has shut down the production of various products in the ground sensors market attributed to the lockdown in countries worldwide. This has hampered the growth of the ground sensors market from the last few months and is likely to continue during 2021.
  • COVID-19 has already affected the sales of the ground sensors in the first quarter of 2021 and is anticipated to cause a negative impact on the market growth throughout the year.
  • The major demand for the ground sensors was previously noticed from giant manufacturing countries including the U.S., Germany, Italy, UK, and China, which are negatively affected by the spread of the coronavirus, thereby declining the demand for the ultrasonic ground sensors.
  • Further, potential impact of the lockdown is currently vague and financial recovery of companies is totally based on its cash reserves. ground sensors manufacturers can afford a full lockdown only for a few months, after which the players have to modify their investment plans. For instance, various players in the market halted their production activities for several weeks to reduce the expenses. Whereas few players also adopted employee lay-offs to sustain during the COVID-19 health crisis
  • Ground sensors manufacturers are expected to focus on protecting their workforce, operations, and supply chains to respond toward immediate crises and find new ways of working after COVID-19. For instance, provision of sanitizers, maintaining social distancing, as well as ensuring the vaccination of every employee in the company can assist in promoting the health & safety of the workforce.

Top Impacting Factors

Rise in demand for these products for homeland security support the industry growth. UGS enabled with motion sensors to detect human intruder and differentiate between animals & human are latest advancement in UGS technology. These ground sensor devices are used to perform the various mission tasks that includes border patrolling, surveillance, perimeter defence, and situation awareness and target acquisition. Defence agencies across the world are deploying UGS for better communication in critical military applications drive the market growth during forecast period. Prominent countries with advanced military base increasing military spending for efficient, accurate and successful military operations provides growth opportunities for UGS manufacturers. Increase in importance in military surveillance, public security and commercial applications for real time information collection and data processing is expected to fuel the demand for ground sensors market.

Market Trends

  • Moreover, business expansion strategies also assist in enhancing the geographic footprint of the company and help in gaining significant market share for ground sensors. For instance, the increasing use of UGS in overseas combat operations carried out by the U.S. Army in countries, such as Afghanistan and Iraq thus making North America to lead the global ground sensor market during the forecast period.
  • The launch of new products that contain improved capabilities have been launched by leading market players. For instance, Elbit Systems’ field-proven Torch-X™ C4ISR solutions provide a sophisticated and advanced framework for a wide range of complex and large-scale applications. With seamless integration of sensors, effectors and communication systems, and full support for manned and unmanned autonomous platforms, the advanced systems offer enhanced cross-force coordination, strategic planning capabilities, comprehensive battle management, tactical operations, survivability and lethality. Torch-X C4ISR solutions feature AI-based decision support tools to reduce cognitive load at all echelons, facilitating optimal decision-making and planning processes.
  • Similarly, strategic partnerships and collaborations help to strengthen the base of each company and achieve mutual aspirations faster by leaning on one another’s experience, network and resources. It gives a competitive edge and allows to extend a broader range of opportunities. For instance, Northrop Grumman is on the forefront of national security and space exploration. Northrop Grumman is working with partners to learn more and defend throughout the space domain, one of the most important factors in national security. The teams designed the iconic Apollo Lunar lander and were instrumental in returning the Apollo 13 crew safely home. This passion for deep space continues today with cutting-edge exploration programs such as the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), safety initiatives such as the Launch Abort System (LAS) and purpose-built spacecraft designed to change the way we view space exploration.
