The advancement in the fields of biotechnology, nuclear energy, and life sciences can significantly benefit humanity. However, such developments can also be a threat as they are used for hostile purposes, and to execute various instances of bio-terrorism. This makes it indispensable for scientists and the security community to constantly engage with each other, and develop methods to prevent or counter forms of CBRN terrorism.
In 1996, due to the impact of the nuclear attack in Japan (Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945), and the nuclear test explosions (in the Soviet Union in 1949, the UK in 1952, France in 1960, and China in 1964), the International Court of Justice declared the use of nuclear weapons as contrary to international law. In the same year, the US, Russia, China, France, and the UK, concluded on putting a ban on the nuclear test explosions, by signing the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty (CTBT) at the United Nations (UN).
To prevent disastrous damage from nuclear weapons, the US and other like-minded countries such as Russia, China, France, and the UK, signed the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty (NPT) in 1968, and the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty (CTBT) in 1996. In addition, during the 1970s, the US and Russian leaders negotiated a series of bilateral arms control agreements and initiatives that limited and reduced the size of their nuclear arsenals. Likewise, in 2015, Iran had a deal with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to monitor and control the development of nuclear weapons.
Despite this progress, nine countries together possess more than 15,000 nuclear weapons, with the US and Russia still deploying more than 3,000 strategic warheads on several bombers and missiles. They are currently modernizing their nuclear delivery systems. Similarly, countries like India and Pakistan, which did not sign the NPT, and North Korea, after its withdrawal from the treaty, continue their nuclear pursuits. The development and upgrading of such weapon systems are a threat.
To combat this, in 2013, the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons (OPCW) in the US estimated that it would take another 10 years before the country completes the destruction of the remaining 10% of its chemical weapons, which is estimated to be more than 3,100 tons.
Similarly, in 2013, Norway hosted the first humanitarian conference, to examine the ecological impact of nuclear weapons. Also, in 2014, the second conference on the Humanitarian Impact of Nuclear Weapons (HINW) in Mexico concluded that it is imperative to ban the use of nuclear weapons.

With the increasing extremist threats and border disputes in Asia and the Americas, there have been major investments by the key vendors in the market. For example, in 2015, Elbit Systems signed a one-year contract with a customer in Latin America, worth $70 million, for the supply of intelligence integrated systems for homeland security applications. Under the contract, the vendor will provide the customer with Hermes 900 UAS systems and an intelligence gathering system. In the same year, Smiths Detection received a contract, worth $9.2 million, from General Dynamics in the UK, to supply chemical agent detectors for the AJAX program.
Under the UK MOD program, the production of up to 589 armored fighting vehicles is planned, with deliveries scheduled to start in 2017. In addition, the vendor would supply LCD 3.3 detectors, which provide the crew with an early warning of any chemical warfare attack. In the same year, 908 Devices, a prominent vendor of the market, was selected by the US Army’s next-generation chemical detector (NGCD) program, for its patented high-pressure mass spectrometry (HPMS). The contract is in the support of the Army’s chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) defense programs.
The NGCD program would provide capabilities that would aid in the detection and identification of chemical warfare agents (CWAs), non-traditional agents (NTAs), toxic industrial chemicals (TICs), and other threats in the air and on surfaces of aerosol, liquid, solid, and vapor. NGCD is predicted to be one of the largest CBRN equipment procurement contracts in the world.
Mergers and acquisitions and increased collaboration with partners globally will drive the market during the forecast period. In 2015, Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW), Germany, merged with Nexter Systems, France, to provide support to the anti-CBRN warfare across the world. Such acquisitions will enhance the position of the company in the market and enable direct access to local customers.
Government organizations such as the DoD, MoD, European Union (EU), and United Nations (UN) encourage the provision of anti-CBRN systems and technologies. As a result, vendors invest in creating new, cost-efficient, and effective CBRND solutions and systems.

CBRN Defense Market – Regional Analysis
The US makes the largest investments in its nuclear warheads globally. In 2015, the US Army is estimated to have over 7,100 nuclear warheads, with more than 4,700 warheads assigned for use in military vehicles.
Both Washington and Moscow signed the chemical weapons convention (CWC) of the 1990s, which forbid the use, production, and stockpiling of chemical weapons. The process of safe disposal of the chemicals and munitions took over 20 years.
There are still more than 3,000 tons of chemical weapons left in the US, stored at two remaining facilities at Pueblo in Colorado, and Bluegrass in Kentucky. In 2015, the officials plan to destroy the major store in Pueblo, which has 2,600 tons of mustard blister chemicals stored in liquid and projectile form. The process is expected to be completed in four years. Additionally, 523 tons of mustard agent, VX, and sarin nerve agents are stored in the Bluegrass plant in Kentucky. Officials predict that destroying that arsenal, which is slated to start in 2020, will be completed in 2023.
Moreover, in 2013, the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for eliminating the Syrian army’s stockpiles of poison gas. Such progresses in the anti-CBRN and anti-WMD warfare would simultaneously boost the development of the market.
The following are some of the major contracts that fuel the growth of the market:
