Landmine Detection: A Survey of Relevant Technologies and Market Analysis
Landmines are indiscriminate weapons, harming soldiers and civilians alike. They remain viable long after the conflict has ended, killing and injuring civilians and leaving large areas of land unusable for decades.
At least 70 countries are believed to have unexploded landmines. The Landmine Monitor also states that over 73,576 casualties have occurred from landmines in the past 10 years. On the order of 15,000-20,000 injuries occur per year, and there are 350,000-500,000 survivors around the world today. A mine that costs $3 to place can cost between $300-$1000 to remove.
This research report surveys existing landmine detection solutions and identifies the technology shortfall. A market analysis is performed, examining the market size, growth, segmentation, and expansion. Market fragmentation was observed, with many competitors and no clear winning technology. A competitive analysis is provided for the more advanced demining products Market influences and funding levels are also observed.
