The growing need to focus on reducing soldier casualties and enhancing soldier capability, is impacting positively on the growth of the market for soldier monitoring systems. The increase in terrorism and cross border insurgencies led to increase in soldier casualties, which in turn compelled the defense forces and defense contractors to develop the soldier monitoring systems. The concern to reduce soldier casualties during combat, is driving the market growth. Moreover, the global defense forces are constantly focusing on modernizing their military troops in order to enhance their strength during combat. This factor also led the soldier monitoring systems market to surge over the period.

The key factor restraining the market for soldier monitoring systems to grow over the period is the lack of technological awareness among the soldiers. The soldier monitoring systems are technologically enhanced and robust systems, which is limiting the soldiers to adopt the up graded systems, hence inhibiting the market to grow over the years. In addition, the declining defense budgets in developed nations is also impacting negatively on the market growth. This is attributed to the fact that, as declining defense budgets results in less procurement of technologically advanced systems, thus, hindering the growth of the market in the future.
