Global Directed Energy Weapon Market – Overview

According to a recent study report published by Market Research Future, the global market for Directed Energy Weapon market will grow at a rapid pace over the forecast period. Directed Energy Weapon Market Size is expected to reach USD 4.2 Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 18.6% during 2020-2030

The high demand for directed energy weapon market is due to the growing need for high quality, integrated, precise and cost-effective energy weapons by defense forces, thus increasing the participation of manufacturers. Rapid technology advancement, along with the increased focus of OEMs on strengthening aircraft capabilities, is expected to result in an increase in aircraft expenses and add to the growth of the market. However, high development cost of the weapons and susceptibility to degradation by external environments act as a barrier to the growth of directed energy weapon market.

Directed energy weapon is the weapon that emits highly focused energy, consists of laser, microwave, and particle beams, to damage the target. Several applications such as anti-personnel weapon systems, and missile defense systems, have used the weapons for defense purpose such as chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear emergencies. This has consequently resulted in increased R&D expenditure for the development of directed energy weapons.

Moreover, factors responsible for the growth of directed energy weapon market are high demand for lethal weapons and laser weapons, and increasing spending on defense expenses. This is the primary factor that drives the growth of the global directed energy weapon market and has gained prevalence in the recent times, with the usage of best in class technologies in the aircraft sectors. Thus, the growth of the directed energy weapon market is expected to go hand in hand with the growth of investment in the military sector.
