Directed Energy Weapon Market: Global Analysis and Forecasts by Types, Technologies, Applications and End-User Verticals


Pune, India -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/01/2018 -- 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. The market 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 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.
