Precision Guided Munitions Market Outlook- 2027 

Precision has always been recognized as an important attribute of weapon development. Precision guided munition belongs to a category of weapons which can be aimed & directed against a single target. Such weapons rely on external guidance system or their own guidance system. Precision guided munition can be launched from aircrafts, submarines, ships, land vehicles, and even from individual soldiers from the ground. Air launched precision munition includes hellfire missile, JAGM, paveway laser guided bomb, long range anti-ship missile, and more. Ground launched precision munitions are army tactical missile system (ATACMS), guided multiple rocket launch system (GMLRS), and precision strike missiles (PrSM). Such systems are being extensively adopted and upgraded by defense forces across the world. For instance, in October 2018, Raytheon Company and Saab AB signed a contract with the US Army to demonstrate a laser-guided munition to be used with the Carl-Gustaf man-portable shoulder-fired launcher. 

COVID-19 Scenario analysis:

  • Due to COVID-19 situation, the R&D inprecision guided munitioncompanies across the globe has been hampered due to declared lockdowns and government restrictions on public gatherings.
  • As governments spending shift toward economic recovery due to the pandemic, industries may experience reduction in quantity of order for precision guided munitions.
  • Production rate of precision guided munition making companies has been affected adversely due to COVID-19 situation. 
  • Precision guided munition companies facing the temporary operational issues due to the restrictions on site access, imposed by government authorities to contain the spread of virus.
  • Post COVID-19, global precision guided munition market will witness a significant growth as several countries have either already ordered or planning to procure precision guided munitions for their forces.

Top impacting factors: market scenario analysis, trends, drivers and impact analysis

Increase in demand for precision guided munitions to minimize collateral damage, political insurgencies & cross border conflicts, reduction in logistics burden, and growing military modernization programs are some of the factors that drive the precision guided munition market. However, regulations related to arms transfer & high manufacturing costs are hindering the market growth.Increase in R&D in precision guided munition firms may be opportunistic for the growth of the market in the future.

Increase inR&D in precision guided munition firms

The requirement to replace & upgrade existing systems such as inertial navigation system (INS), global positioning system (GPS), radar homing, semi-active lasers, and anti-radiation is enabling industries to invest heavily in R&D of precision guided munitions. For instance, in February 2020, India announced its efforts to develop tactical ballistic missiles with a range of 200 km. The missile is being developed by “defence research and development organization” (DRDO) of India, and trails of missile system are expected to begin in 2021. Such increase in investments & improving technology will provide ample amount of opportunities in the global precision munition market.
