Military Shelters Market: Highlights from the Report

Military shelter systems are deployed for a multitude of purposes including temporary living, medical support centers, arms and ammunition storage, etc., by the defense authorities for their troops. These shelters are in the form of containers, tents, panels, etc. that are deployed for a certain period.

The defense industry has exhibited significant growth over the past few years with almost every country increasing its military expenses and budgets. The demand for military shelters has also considerably grown in the wake of surging military and humanitarian operations/missions. Currently, the manufacturers of military shelter structures are focused on the development of lightweight, portable, and cost-efficient systems. Over the years, major shelter manufacturers have switched to composite shelters aiming at greater durability, cost efficiency, and lightweight, some of the most urged requirements from defense authorities. As a result, it is anticipated that in the forthcoming years, composites would be the primary material used for the development of military shelters.

The overall impact of the Pandemic on the demand for military shelters seemed negligible since a vast majority of the contracts for military shelters are long-term in nature, assisting the industry stakeholders to survive the pandemic shocks. Stratview Research’s estimates suggest that the market for military shelters is estimated to reach a value of US$ 1,081.2 million in 2026, growing at a healthy CAGR of 3.5% during 2021-2026.

Based on the shelter size, large shelters are the preferred category in the market and are estimated to maintain their huge lead over small shelters in the years to come. Small shelters are also estimated to grow at a healthy pace over the forecast period.

Based on the shelter type, the market is segregated as rigid shelters and non-rigid shelters. Non-rigid shelters are soft-wall shelters, made of fabrics, whereas rigid shelters are hard wall containers or panels. Rigid wall shelters hold a lion’s share of the market as they are of a higher cost majorly due to the integration of various rigid materials and expensive mechanisms. All the major countries usually prefer rigid wall shelters for medical facilities and command-and-control posts. Expandable containers are the most preferred rigid shelter type, usually supplied in the length of 20″.

Moreover, military shelters are deployed for serving a wide range of applications including personnel accommodation, command, and control posts, medical facility posts, storage, aircraft hangars, and many more. The study of recent contracts between military shelter manufacturers and defense authorities corroborates that there has been a greater demand for rigid military shelters for the command-and-control post.
