No industry knows this more than ground defense. Throughout the last 100-plus years of mechanized warfare, an impulse to innovate has often made the difference between mission success and failure. This is true today with tanks, personnel carriers, infantry fighting vehicles, MRAPs, and related C4I systems.
Fueled by increased defense spending in the US, rising regional tensions around the world, and asymmetric threats like natural disasters and terrorism, the total market for all military ground vehicles is expected to hit $522 billion by 2022. The adoption of new materials for armor and the fuel efficiency of hybrid engines are accelerating this growth.
