Product Insights

By product, the tactical missile segment had the largest market share 71% in 2021. These tactical missiles are able to Cause lethal damage to the target. Another reason for the growth of this product is that it is able to cover long range of distances. The use of these missiles along with the navigation system is expected to capture the target along with its location. Apart from the missile segment the guided rocket segment will also show a good amount of growth in the future. As the Rockets are light in weight this property is helping in the growth of this market segment. The low cost associated with guided rockets is also creating a demand for this product during the forecast. The guided rockets segment will be able to penetrate different markets in the developing nations. Bombs bullets and mortars are all the guided ammunition which are used in the defense industry.

Apart from all of these products the loitering munition product will also show a good amount of growth during the forecast period. The loitering munition product has an extremely different feature of moving around the target and hitting at a precise location.

Technology Insights

By technology, the GPS segment had about 31% of the market share Tinder recent years. The Global Positioning System is extremely helpful in locating the target that needs to be attacked. Global Positioning System play the next really important role for the aerial attack as it helps in illuminating the target and the path for attack is set.

The semiactive laser guidance technology also plays an important role in the defense industry the semiactive laser guidance was of great importance in the recent years. However due to the availability of GPS technology the semi-active laser guidance technology will soon be replaced entirely with the GPS technology. It helps in having the precise location of the target. With the help of GPS technology the collateral damage caused during the war is cut out and helps in attacking only the target. The use of GPS technology is expected to grow during the forecast. Even for the long range warfare activities as this technology helps it take Ting the real time movement of the target that needs to be attacked.

The infrared enabled guided munitions segment will also show a significant growth during the future. The factors responsible for the growth of this segment are the cost effectiveness and the precision with which it locates the target. The infrared components are attached to the equipment used for defense. These infrared components that are attached with the war equipments do not make the equipments heavy as they are lightweight and they also consume less space. Due to these reasons the infrared enabled guided munition is expected to grow during the forecast period. Infrared components are attached to rockets and missiles. Another segment for guided munition is radar homing guidance systems. This technology is extensively used in the tactical ballistic missiles. With the use of this technology the target is located autonomously. The GPS system performs autonomously with the use of Internet and it does not require any transfer of data. All the three forces civil and army can use the GPS technology for detecting the target and obtaining information regarding the real time movement of these targets.

Speed Insights

Based on speed, the hypersonic segment is expected to have the highest compounded annual growth rate during the forecast period. The speed of the hypersonic precision guided munitions is five times more than the speed of sound. The most important factor for the growth of this equipment is that the weapons are extremely difficult to counter as they have high speed.
