Explosive ordnance disposal equipment refers to devices and tools used to dispose, detect, and provide protection during operations that involve explosive disposal. This equipment is used during military or defense operations to render hazardous explosive devices safe. Explosive disposal became a formal practice following the First World War. However, during its initial phase, there were no specialized tools or core knowledge available to train armed forces about the variations of munitions and how to use them. With the evolution of technology, not only have explosives become more destructive, but the equipment used to dispose them has also become more advanced.

With the risk of terrorist intrusions and bomb attacks rising, governments across the majority of countries around the world are opting for EOD devices. Additionally, defense organizations are also focusing on providing modern equipment to defense forces to efficiently combat any form of intrusion. These have been identified as the key factors fuelling the demand from the global explosive ordnance disposal market. The increasing modernization of police forces is also expected to have a positive impact on the market. Due to the increasing incidence of terror attacks witnessed globally, the demand for explosive ordnance disposal equipment is expected to rise substantially over the forecast period.

However, defense budget cuts across several countries may hamper the overall growth of the market. Nevertheless, innovation of the latest technologies and products is likely to help the manufacturers operating in the EOD equipment market strengthen their market position.
