Global Directed Energy Weapon Industry – Overview

According to a recent study report published by Industry Research Future, the global Industry for Directed Energy Weapon Industry will grow at a rapid pace over the forecast period. The Industry is expected to witness slow but steady growth until 2023, which will be a growing fast at a moderate CAGR during the forecast period (2017 -2023).  

The high demand for directed energy weapon Industry 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 Industry. 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 Industry.

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 Industry 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 Industry 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 Industry is expected to go hand in hand with the growth of investment in the military sector.
