Global 8x8 armored vehicles market is dominated by large spenders such as the US, France and Germany, among others, which have several significant procurement programs underway. Rising demand for such vehicles from these regions along with several emerging markets have led to the development of several advanced 8x8 vehicles, which include the Stryker armored fighting vehicle, Boxer multirole vehicle and the Patria modular vehicle.

Over the last two to three decades, wheeled armored vehicles have witnessed rapid traction in the global market with several countries, particularly in the west, replacing their heavy tracked vehicles with wheeled ones. This shift in preference for wheeled platforms over tracked ones is in turn fuelling the growth of 8x8 vehicles, which have gained rapid popularity over the years driven by their ability to hold larger number of crew members and offer better mobility.

In 2015 the global armored vehicles market stood at US$22.3 Billion, including spending on both procurement and upgrade programs. The market is expected to grow further, at a rate of 4% over the next decade, a large portion of which can be attributed to the growing demand for wheeled military vehicles. With the growing popularity of 8x8 wheeled vehicles in defense markets across the world, several armored vehicle manufacturers have introduced dedicated 8x8 vehicle product lines, such as General Dynamics’ Stryker family of products and Nexter’s line of VBCI 8x8 vehicles. Driven by the rapid adoption of these vehicles in the global market, many of these companies are currently forming joint ventures and partnerships, with the aim to jointly develop new generation 8x8 armored vehicles.
