Our latest defence report - CBRN Defence Market 2010-2020 - explores and analyses the substantial business opportunities presented by one of the most significant markets in the defence and homeland security sector. Our study examines the leading markets for chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) defence products and services, as well as assessing the factors that are driving sales growth around the world.

Visiongain's analysis has concluded that CBRN defence products are a very significant market with worldwide spending totalling $7.9bn in 2009.

We examine the commercial prospects for companies involved in supplying CBRN detection, protection and decontamination systems, as well as training services, to the global marketplace. This analytical report defines the current state of the CBRN defence market and discusses its potential for growth from 2010 onwards, with detailed sales forecasting carried out at both global and regional levels.

We analyse the combination of drivers and restraints that are resulting in increasing sales around the world. We also examine the most promising areas of technological development that are likely to affect procurement decisions over our forecast period.

Incidents such as the Sarin attack on the Tokyo subway in 1995 and the Anthrax campaign in the US in 2001 show that CBRN terrorism poses a grave threat. According to the 'Annual Threat Assessment of the US Intelligence Community for the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence', which was released in February 2010, US intelligence agencies believe that if Al-Qaeda can develop CBRN capabilities it will use them to attack Western targets.

How are major economies preparing their civilian and military personnel to respond to CBRN attacks? Which regions offer the most significant growth opportunities between 2010 and 2020? To what extent is the perception of the threat of terrorism driving sales of CBRN defence systems? How are strategies for responding to chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear attacks being adapted to meet changing requirements?

Visiongain answers these critical questions and many more through the in-depth analyses that are presented in this report.
