The success of man-portable miniature UAVs (M-UAVs) in the Afghanistan and Iraq wars has motivated a number of militaries around the world to procure M-UAVs for surveillance purposes.  The uses of M-UAVs also help to reduce the number of causalities during surveillance operations, a prime concern for militaries in recent times. Heavily used by European and American soldiers during the wars, miniature UAVs production is expected to increase as the technology moves up the ladder in the category. Most aerial vehicles do not require landing strips, have strong flight arrangements, and are easy to deploy; therefore becoming an indispensable component of soldiers' gear and man pack kits. As the technology evolves in this sector, UAVs are expected to feature increasing stealth characteristics, which will make this segment even more promising and attractive for militaries. Although these new additions to the soldier's gear have increased the weight of soldier packs, and they are carrying the heaviest load of equipment ever, soldiers are not refuting the utility of the equipment and are ready to compromise their clothing to include the miniature UAVs. Major programs in the M-UAV segment include the US$283 million Raven RQ-11B and RQ-20A Puma program by the US, and the Skylark-II program by Israel.

The need for portable electronics has now become paramount for quick response, especially for land based operations which don't rely on vehicle-mounted systems. These requirements, coupled with the experiences drawn from Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts have led the defense companies to develop advanced portable electronic systems to cater to the growing demand. Some of the portable devices such as tactical radios provide infantry forces with an ability to rapidly establish relatively high bandwidth connections and share information at a rapid speed with other military stations. Making greater use of these systems improve situational awareness at multiple levels of command and facilitate improved coordination between units, especially in those conflicts where multinational coalition forces operate. There are few advanced communication equipment that are able to transmit real-time information and data to and from the command center to the battlefield, without revealing the location of the command center to potential enemy signals intelligence (SIGINT) systems. These devices were actively used by European and American forces in the Afghan and Iraq wars, helping them to defeat surprise guerilla attacks.

Due to the use of sophisticated electronic technologies for communications, surveillance, sensing, detecting and destroying enemy forces, electric power requirements are increasing over the years. Batteries with limited power capacity, leading to a frequent need for re-supply, are limiting mobility and acting as a deterrent to effective field operations. As rechargeable batteries can lower the soldier's burden and lead to less logistics support for the supply of batteries, many countries worldwide are favoring them. Reducing the size and weight of man-portable military electronic systems without compromising the electronic warfare capabilities of soldiers is the main focus of defense ministries of various countries. Moreover, modern combat doctrine has shifted to quicker strikes by smaller teams and special forces. This is partly due to defense budget cuts by the US and most European countries, and the rise of asymmetric warfare. This has led to the development of 'light' communication systems to provide mission flexibility, C2, provide situational awareness and reduce soldier fatigue. In 2013, SBG Systems of France introduced the Ekinox INS MEMS-based inertial navigation system (INS) that combines INS based on micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) technology, with a miniaturized global positioning system (GPS) receiver for on-board navigation on ground robots, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs,) and other small systems. Additionally, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is seeking industry for ideas on digital technology to infantry squads in a program called Digitizing SQUAD X: Sensing, Communications, Mission Command, and Soldier-Worn Backbone. Additionally, the US Army researchers are developing new ways for soldiers to wear electronic devices that give information to the user such as wrist monitor.

Countries across the world are implementing extensive soldier modernization programs and have placed significant emphasis on the survivability component of soldier modernization. This focus on survivability has made it imperative for a large number of countries to procure man-portable military electronic systems for their armed forces. Moreover, most of these survivability programs are multi-year programs which ensures that the procurement of man-portable military electronics are carried out over a number of years and therefore, in the process have provided an impetus to the man-portable military electronics market. The major survivability-based soldier modernization programs of North America, which include the procurement of man-portable military electronics, are the acquisition of radios, hands-free display systems and smart phones. The Asia-Pacific survivability market is dominated by Australia's Land 125 Phase 3B program and India's procurement of survivability equipment for the F-INSAS program. In Europe the main contributor to the survivability-based soldier modernization equipment procurement is the UK's Future Infantry Soldier Technology (FIST) program, which includes several man-portable military electronics types in its ambit.
