The global counter improvised explosive device (IED) market, estimated at a value of $6.4 billion in 2012, will decrease at a CAGR of 5.59% during the forecast period to reach $3.6 billion by 2022. The market consists of five categories: counter IED vehicles, electronic countermeasures, detection systems, unmanned systems, and counter IED training.

The demand for counter IED equipment is anticipated to be driven by internal and external security threats, territorial disputes, modernization initiatives, technological innovations and a substantial demand for counter IED systems for coalition forces in Afghanistan. Cumulatively, the global market is expected to value US$46.7 billion during the forecast period. The market is expected to be dominated by North America, followed by Europe and Asia-Pacific.
