Laser Defense Eyewear Market Outlook 2030 –
The laser defense eyewear market is primarily designed for tactical and combat military operations. These eyewear systems are made by combining lenses and components that can withstand harsh circumstances. For both day and night military activities, there are many laser defensive eyewear systems with adjustable lenses. Due to their increasing use by paramilitary and homeland security groups, the demand for military protection eyewear is expected to expand significantly during the forecast period. Incorporation of LPE in helmets is one of the most important trends in the laser defense eyewear industry for market growth. Superior methods, along with contemporary technologies and inventive techniques, make protecting civilians and waging wars more effective. The military operations of most countries are heavily reliant on modern weapons, making them critical components of future and existing military operational strategies. Despite these advancements, the success of a military campaign is still dependent on the defense and competence methods of the armed forces.
COVID-19 Impact Analysis
COVID-19 pandemic is expected to adversely impact the market to a certain extent. Lockdown imposed by the governments in various parts of the world have reasonable reduced the demand. This is attributed to affect the laser eyewear manufacturing sector, supply chain process and others. Owing to the pandemic, there have been disruptions in the supply chain process that have enabled end-users to realize destructive effects in the laser eyewear business and manufacturing process. Besides researchers across the globe have been focused on developing laser eyewear that detect the virus and protecting the peoples from the virus. All sectors such as military, medical and healthcare sectors are affected due to the disrupted transportation at the pandemic period.
Top Impacting factors
- Increasing demand for laser defense eyewear for airplane pilots, the rising threat of extremist attack, and rise in use of lethal weapons are the major factors driving the growth of global laser defense eyewear market.
- stringent regulatory mandates, and low-grade consumer laser protection eyewear are the major restraints that hindered the growth of the laser defense eyewear market.
- Emergence of stylish and comfortable laser defense eyewear, implementation of composites in jet engines and aircraft interiors are the major factors offering an opportunity for the growth of laser defense eyewear market.
Increasing demand for laser defense eyewear for airplane pilots
One technology that is often help to reduce laser/aircraft illumination hazards is Laser Glare Protection (LGP) eyewear, or “anti-laser glasses.” These have been developed specifically to protect pilots against too-bright laser pointer illuminations. The growing problem of bright laser glare cannot be taken lightly for pilots. The commercial, military, and civilian alike are in danger of being distracted and temporarily blinded by high-powered, long-range lasers. Though the dangers are most acute during take-off and landing, laser sightings have been reported at elevations of over 10,000 feet. With the ever growing threat of laser interference, it is time for pilots to protect themselves and utilize laser defense technology. Laser Strike Eyewear by Phillips Safety Products, Inc. has been designed and produced with the specific goal of blocking and reducing laser beam wavelengths. This eyewear was initially developed for the US military, it is now available for civilian pilots as well, offering protection and visual clarity for safety on the job. For instance, Metamaterial Technologies Inc (MTI) originally developed the holographic laser-reflecting technology for use in windscreens. The goal was to protect pilots without the need for eyewear. However, windscreen modifications require a slow, multi-year process of obtaining governmental and airline approval. In addition, the cost to modify windscreens is much higher than the cost of one or two pairs of eyewear. So eyewear was a natural choice for the first commercially available laser protection product from MTI.
Emergence of stylish & comfortable laser defense eyewear
The market is expected to develop due to the launch of stylish and comfortable laser defensive eyewear, as well as the night usage eyeglasses and comfortable laser eyewear. The increased use of such eyewear in the industrial sector is also driving the market. With the possibility of terrorist attacks and the use of lethal weapons on the rise, the global market for laser defensive eyewear is expected to grow rapidly over the forecast period. The present-day laser safety officers in the medical, military and research and development applications are opting for high-performance liquid phase epitaxy (LPEs). Such requirements have fueled the market vendors to improve stylish and comfortable eyewear, with the requisite laser protection specifications, that the military personnel, industrial workers and other clients would wear to combat possibly hazardous laser exposures. These glasses are scratch proof, durable and are available in numerous frame styles. For instance, October 2019, Gentex and Teledyne Scientific will develop several sizes and variants of laser eye protection in order to protect aircrew against emerging laser attacks such as laser dazzlers and lasers intended to cause permanent eye injury or even blind aircrews.
