Global Infrared Search & Track (IRST) System Market is valued approximately USD 5.01 Billion in 2019 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 5.88% over the forecast period 2020-2027. Infrared search & track (IRST) system refer to a technique of detecting and tracking objects which offer off infrared radiation which is include in jet plane and helicopters, the IRTS is being broadly used within the military and protection area for security and surveillance. The applications of Infrared search and track technology promises to enhance sensor suites for next-era fighter aircraft, specifically about recognizing stealth plane without the use of radar. Due to such essential role of IRST in defense sector it is gaining promising growth supported by global increase in defense budget. For instance: as per Government of India, the spending of defense in 2020 is assigned as USD 65.86 billion which is an increase from USD 57 billion in 2018. Similarly, Department of Defense discretionary budget, United States, assigned USD 686.1 billion in defense in 2019 which increased to USD 721.5 billion in 2020. Additionally, the rise in need for enhanced security and immunity over radars along with requirement for enhanced situational awareness is expected to drive the growth of market over the forecast years. Whereas, the global pandemic of COVID-19 results in slow down of manufacturing and supply of essential raw materials regarding IRST and is expected to limit the growth of market over the forecast years. Also, high designing and manufacturing cost of this technology is the factor restraining the market growth.
