Honeywell International, 3M Company, MSA Safety, and Ansell Ltd., have established themselves by expanding geographically, frequently indulging in mergers and acquisitions as well as eyeing strategic collaborations. For instance, the 3M Company acquired Scott Safety in Market 2017, adding the North Carolina based company to its portfolio. Boeing Company, Unisys Technologies, Lockheed Martin, International Business Machines Corporation (IBM), Accenture, and Siemens AG are some of the other notable companies currently holding a notable position in the global CBRN security market.
Global CBRN Security Market to be worth US$15,074.8 mn by 2025
According to the projections of the TMR report, the demand in the global CBRN security market will multiply at a CAGR of 4.8% during the forecast period of 2017 to 2025, by the end of which the opportunities in the market are estimated to translate into a revenue of US$15,074.8 mn, substantially up from its evaluated worth of US$9,890.0 mn in 2016. Going forward, the vendor landscape of the global CBRN market is expected to remain intensely competitive with the development of innovative products turn out as the primary mode for the companies to gain greater shares. For example, Honeywell’s NIOSH CAP 2 is quite popular as an escape hood as it offers nearly 30 minutes of protection from many contaminants and its dual cartridge design helps in providing comfort. The product is currently being used for industrial safety purposes.
