Growing Complexity of Modern Warfare to Open New Vistas in Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) Security Market
Policy makers have risen to the reality of chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) attacks, both from state as well as non-state actors. The growing demand for new response frameworks to address these concerns is the key driver for the evolution of new systems in the CBRN security market. Industry players have worked in collaboration of various industry players to devise effective response frameworks, Rise in use of CBRN attacks in terrorism has spurred investments and interest in strategies in CBRN security market. The growing use of hazardous chemicals to lay out hoax calls or to carry out terrorist attacks is becoming popular. There is a growing focus on multifaceted strategies that take care of diverse elements to achieve resilience in chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear security hacks. A wide range of systems such as supply chains, chemical manufacturing units, and air handling systems have seen the onslaught of CBRN attacks, propelling the need for advanced surveillance technologies for CBRN security. The rise in new strategies by security specialists has enabled these technologies meet the diverse objectives in the CBRN security market.
During the times of Covid-19, when governments around the world were intensely engaged in managing the repercussions of health pandemics and morbidity of the virus, CNRN warfare has gathered steam. Nefarious elements make extensive plans to implement emergency shutdowns by harming CBRN systems of nations. Hence. CBRN security market has made strides on the back of maintaining international peace and security. Also, biological warfare is no more considered as a thing of future, with non-state actors staging new disruptions to test the ramifications of such events. Also, growing attention on weapons of mass destruction has spurred pilot projects aimed at protecting critical infrastructures and preventing access to CBRN materials, which has expanded the horizon for industry investments in the CBRN security market.
Global Chemical, Biological, Radiological. And Nuclear Security Market: Overview
Chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) security is principally responsible for effective combat against CBRN weapons for mass destruction from various external or internal anti national organizations. CBRN incidents can occur accidentally, intentionally, or naturally. Accidental CBRN incidents are the events caused by human error or technological errors, such as factory spillage, accidental release or leakage of poisonous gas or liquids. Intentional CBRN incidents are those that occur when CBRN materials are released into the environment with the intention of terrorism or war. The deliberate accumulation or discharge of hazardous materials to avoid fulfilling regulatory requirements also counts as intentional CBRN incidents. A natural CBRN incident would be the outbreak of an infectious disease such as Ebola, swine flu, severe acute respiratory syndrome (S.A.R.S.), pandemic influenza, etc.
Owing to the global increase in terrorist activity and the procurement of mass destruction weapons by anti-state organizations, it has become highly essential for governments, armed troops and civilians to be involved in a strategic recognition, preparation, and prevention of fatal threats. Governments across the world are adopting enhanced technology for the prevention of CBRN attacks by anti-national or terrorist organizations. For example, the recent evidence of the procurement of chemical weapons for mass destruction by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), Boko Haram, and Al-Qaeda, signifies a major threat to the international community. Military organizations across the world are demanding special devices, systems and training for CBRN attack response operations.
