Interceptor Missiles Market by Range, Technology: Industry Players Are Aerojet Rocketdyne, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Rafael Advanced Defense Systems, Raytheon

PAC-3 is expected to account for highest interceptor missile market share crossing USD 6 billion over the coming years.


Sellbyville, DE -- (SBWire) -- 01/25/2019 --Interceptor Missiles Market is projected to cross 3,000 units with USD 14 billion by 2024. Surface to air missiles are expected to capture maximum interceptor missiles market revenue share of more than 80% by 2024. Some of the benefits offered includes light-weight and portability which in turn will drive the industry demand. Water to air missiles will exhibit approximately 7% CAGR owing to rising adoption of these missiles in various countries across the globe for naval border protection.

India, toward the end of last year, made it to the headlines with its successful accomplishment of test-firing an AAD (Advanced Air Defence) interceptor missile, from test range in Odisha. If reports are to be relied, this endo atmospheric interceptor is capable of destroying enemy ballistic missile at low altitude. By effectively hitting a test missile at an altitude of 15 km, this absolutely groundbreaking technology, as claimed by experts, has undoubtedly made India to stand tall in global interceptor missiles market share. Apparently, this was the third successful supersonic interceptor test being conducted this year, in which an incoming ballistic missile was intercepted within 30kms of earth atmosphere altitude.

Citing another breakthrough instance in interceptor missiles market -Israel has finally carried out a successful test of Arrow 3 long range missile interceptor. Reportedly, after two consecutive aborted attempts, the project became fruitful by the combined effort of US Missile Defense Agency and Israel Defence forces. While the country's defence sector is already complemented with a range of missile defence systems to protect Israel from long, medium, and short ranged attacks, the Arrow 3 system is claimed to be the first of its kind in Israel's multi-layered missile defense network. Isreal's success test of Arrow 3 missile system, thereupon is undoubtedly a milestone for the regional growth of interceptor missiles market.
