The Global Ground Vehicle Processor market is projected to grow at a CAGR of around 6% during the forecast period, 2022-27, says MarkNtel Advisors in their recent research report. The Ground Vehicle Processor market witnessed a significant growth rate during the historical period, 2017-2021. The growth was attributed to the high demand for armored vehicles for troop support in battle environments as well as for providing an enhanced level of protection to militaries worldwide.
The increasing geopolitical tensions in Asian-Pacific, Middle Eastern, and European regions also played a major role in the growth of the Ground Vehicle Processor market. Besides, the demand for future ground vehicles is expected to rise during the coming years, as many nations are in the process of modernizing & replacing their Main Battle Tanks (MBTs), and a variety of other light infantry vehicles, armored fighting vehicles, etc.
However, the demand for ground vehicles witnessed a surge due to high geopolitical tensions in the Middle East & European region as well as territorial disputes in Asia-Pacific. Several countries, including China, India, Poland, the United Kingdom, and Russia, have placed a demand for ground vehicles such as tanks, armored vehicles, MRAPs, and other similar vehicles in order to ensure military readiness.
Moreover, the increasing focus on the development & integration of Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGV) is also expected to enhance the growth of the Global Ground Vehicle Processor market. Ground forces can use these vehicles with greater mobility while being safe from life-threatening risks.
Hence, considering the above-listed factors, it is predicted that the Ground Vehicle Processor market would witness substantial growth during the forecast period, further states the research report, "Global Ground Vehicle Processor Market Analysis, 2027."
