Missile Launching SystemsMarket Outlook - 2027

A sophisticated system for carrying and firing missiles on mobile military platforms, such as surface ships and submarines, is a missile launching system. This system is composed of several cells that can carry one or more missiles ready for firing. Usually, each cell can carry various types of missiles, allowing the ship to load the best set for any given mission. Also, when new missiles are produced, they are usually fitted to that nation's existing vertical launch systems, allowing existing ships to use new types of missiles without costly rework.The missile flies straight up to clear the cell and the boat when the order is given, then switches to a new direction.

COVID – 19 Scenario Analysis:

  • Big spenders on defense such as the U.S, Russia devote approximately 4 percent of their GDP to defense.
  • Various countries have suspended military exercises, and reducing military exercises would reduce the engagement time, informal testing, and evaluation of equipment and reduce the latent market development potential.
  • However, as national security equally important, various companies are increasing expenses in R&D to develop newer materials, to be able to tackle the situations.
  • Supply-side shocks are indeed some of the most noticeable impacts on the defense sector from the consequences of the pandemic. At the moment, the majority of the countries are diverting their funds towards the healthcare industry, to come out with a solution for the virus.

Top impacting factors: Market Scenario Analysis, Trends, Drivers and Impact Analysis

Some of the factors that encourage market growth are the change in government investment trends, the rise in the defense budget, and the need to update the outdated air defense launching system.Growing incidents of terrorist activity and increasing territorial conflicts leading to a confrontation with neighbouring countries have resulted in close quarter battle scenarios. Also, an increasing number of investments made by different countries worldwide on missile launching systems are the major driving factors for the missile launching systems market.Technological developments, in terms of missiles and missile defense systems, will lead to the acquisition of advanced missile launching systems by various countries, which will fuel development soon.But, due to a few factors, such as the high cost of advanced technology and production delays may hamper the market growth.

The Global Missile launching systems market trends are as follows:

New product launches to flourish the market

Lockheed Martin received a $6.07 billion contract from the U.S. Army for the development of Patriot Advanced Capability-3 (PAC-3) Missile Segment Enhancement (MSE) interceptors and associated equipment in 2020, to be shipped through FY21, FY22 and FY23 contract years.The deal provides for the manufacture and supply of PAC-3 MSE interceptors, launcher modification kits, associated equipment, and ongoing efforts to support the U.S. and global clients.

Also, the U.S. Navy awarded BAE Systems the contract for the manufacture of several types of Vertical Launching System (VLS) canisters of $955 million. The initially awarded contract received $24 M in February and the subsequent contract amendments received in March and May respectively were $99 M and $43 M respectively. Specific types of canisters for potential Navy development needs are offered as contract options.Also, Larsen & Toubro and MBDA, Europe's missile maker, set up a missile integration facility at Tamil Nadu to produce full missile systems for export markets by 2020. The missile integration facility is located in Tamil Nadu.

Various strategic agreements along with an increased focus on procurement of C-UAS due to the rise of UAVs

Several weapons modernization projects are currently underway to rapidly update the capabilities of the regional armed forces to respond effectively to security threats and to achieve urgent, important, and dangerous strategic missions to ensure combat readiness of existing defense systems.Bahrain, for example, signed a contract with the U.S. Army in August 2019 to purchase Patriot missile systems. This contract has been approved by the U.S. government for USD 2.48 billion and includes nine M903, 60 PAC-3 missiles, and 36 GEM-T Patriot missiles.

Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) is one of the main advances in the defense sector and its applications are increasingly growing. The smaller UAS is primarily used in surveillance, control, and identification missions (ISR). Owing to their numerous uses and lower prices, the smaller UAS poses a significant challenge to government agencies worldwide. The majority of countries currently have no mitigation capability and rely only on conventional air defense systems that operate on a large platform that includes fighting jets, cruise missiles, MALE and HALE UAVs.The players in the air defense system industry often focus on providing these defense capabilities to government agencies that support the growth of the Counter-Unmanned Aircraft System and Counter-Rocket Artillery &Missiles program.
