Global Military Simulation And Virtual Training Market Report Information by Application (Flight Simulation, Vehicle Simulation, Battlefield Simulation, Virtual Boot Camp), Platform (Airborne, Ground based, Naval), and Region – Global Forecast to 2023.

Market Scenario

Military simulation and virtual training are an integral part of military operations. Military simulation and virtual training products are sought after by defense ministries, on a global scale, to provide training for service personnel in the air, naval, and land-based domains. Military simulations connected to combat operations, unmanned systems, medical treatment, and maintenance, allow virtual training to take place on different scenarios. These are expected to increase the market growth. The rise in popularity of operational readiness and diverse battlefield requirements in the military applications is expected to drive the market during the forecast period. However, there are some shortcomings in operating performance of the military simulation and virtual training, such as lack of incentives, lack of interoperability, and requirement of high fidelity regarding meeting customer needs restraining the market growth.

The defense ministries across countries are cutting down costs of military expenses, owing to reduced financial resources. Governments are downsizing militaries and cutting down on training budgets, due to which the military is focusing on optimizing solutions for training requirements, which is expected to offer opportunities for the military simulation and virtual training market expansion. Additionally, many countries are reorganizing their military forces, which is resulting in the growth of the military simulation and virtual training market.

Military simulation and virtual training offers the ability to meet various training requirements and enables cost savings and is crucial to reduce the wear and tear of equipment, which is expected to trigger the military simulation and virtual training market growth.

The factors responsible for the growth of military simulation and virtual training market is the decreasing average defense budget across countries and rapidly increasing awareness regarding simulation and training methods. Other key drivers expected to contribute towards the growth of the military simulation and virtual training market are the rising need for existing equipment upgrades and orders for new ones. For instance, Bohemia Interactive Simulations developed augmented reality visual system for Textron Inc. to provide a synthetically generated visual scene and support a trainee’s interactions with the real world using AR/VR technologies. Similarly, General Dynamics signed a contract of $244 million with U.S. Navy to support services, from curriculum development to advanced warfare training. Moreover, Meggitt Training Solutions developed FATS 100 MIL that features a unique combination of capabilities for military users, such as enhanced 3D marksmanship and birds in flight and realistic ballistic effects.

The military simulation and virtual training market is segmented based on application, platform, and regions. On the basis of application, flight simulation is widely used and comprises the largest market share. On the basis of platform, airborne is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period due to the rise in the requirement for battlefield operations and border surveillance. For instance, Northrop Grumman Corporation signed a contract with U.S. Air Force to provide simulated training at its Distributed Training Center (DTC) to army rangers. The virtual training simulated actual battle scenarios for deployment locations.

The market is segmented based on region into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, the Middle East & Africa, and South America. North America is expected to dominate the market in future due to the existence of established market players in this region. Additionally, there is increased investment in research and development in this region have resulted in aggressive technology development and its adoption, thus, contributing to rapid growth. Europe is second to the North American market in military simulation and virtual training market due to increased investment by the governments of developing countries. Thus, the global military simulation and virtual training market is estimated to grow at approximately 8% CAGR from 2018 to 2023.
