Laser defense eyewear is primarily designed for tactical & combat military operations. It is designed by integrating lenses or components, which can handle extreme conditions. It is provided with interchangeable lenses for both day and night military operations. It is used to safeguard the eyes from impairment affected by visible and invisible wavelengths of laser beams. It permits the laser lights as well as intra-beam viewing of lasers with less power. It helps in filtering out the uni-frequency laser rays and avoid eye damage. It is used in medical, research & education, military, and industrial laser applications.
According to study, “Global Laser Defence Eyewear Market by Application (Civil and Military), By & by Region – Global Forecast to 2023” the key companies operating in the global laser defence eyewear market are Revision Military, NoIR LaserShields, ESS (Eye Safety Systems, Inc.), Laser Safety Industries, Honeywell International, PerriQuest Defence Research Enterprises, Gentex Corporation, Phillips Safety Products Inc., Metamaterial Technologies Inc., ST Laserstrike. Key companies are concentrating towards developing high-quality & cost-effective laser defence eyewear which are armed with the modern technologies. Most of the manufacturers in the market contend with the international players in terms of cost, aftermarket services, product quality, and reliability.
Based on type, laser defence eyewear market is segmented into standard type and energy-efficient type. Based on product type, market is segmented into wraparound style, over spectacles style and goggle style. Based on technology type, market is segmented into polycarbonate laser safety glasses, glass laser safety eyewear, laser protective glasses, thin film glasses, and intense pulse light (IPL) safety glasses. Based on application, market is segmented into automotive manufacturing, chemicals, medical, military & defense and others (includes welding, mining applications, oil & gas and industrial manufacturing). Military segment holds major share in market owing to rise in number of laser attacks. In addition, based on end-user, market is segmented into armed troops and paramilitary forces.
The laser defence eyewear market is driven by rise in application by paramilitary & homeland security organizations, followed by increase in demand from industrial area, growth in demand from airline pilots, increase in military operations, surge in technological advancements and rise in development of laser weapons. However, high power laser weapons, stringent regulatory norms and low-grade commercial laser defence eyewear may impact the market. Moreover, emergence of stylish & comfortable laser defence eyewear, introduction of day-and-night use laser defence eyewear and integration of laser defence eyewear in helmet are key opportunities for market.
Based on geography, the Asian-Pacific region holds major share in laser defence eyewear market owing to modernization of military systems and growth in demand from countries such as India, China, and Japan. The North-American region is estimated to witness lucrative growth due to growth in adoption of advanced military components & systems by soldiers during battlefield or special military operations over the forecast period. It is anticipated that the market will be reached at fast pace because of rise of advanced laser weapons for instance personal halting and stimulation response (PHASR) rifle and pulsed energy projectile (PEP) for battlefield tactics during the forecast period.
