Directed energy weapons are ranged weapons that employ a beam of concentrated electromagnetic energy for their functioning. They consist of laser, microwave and particle beams to produce highly focused energy, which further aids in demolishing their target. They can be operated at high speeds to allow them to cause disruptive effects to facilities, vehicles, personnel and equipment in an efficient manner. They are extremely precise as they conveniently target fast-moving objects, making them a preferred choice over conventional munitions. They also offer numerous other advantages, such as unlimited magazine, noise-free functioning, and multiple target area coverage, due to which they are extensively installed in aircraft, land vehicles, unmanned vehicles (UMVs), and military ships.

Market Trends and Drivers:

The global directed energy weapons market is primarily driven by the increasing incidences of geographical conflicts and terror attacks across the globe. This has impelled the governments of various countries to increase their defense budgets and implement numerous effective counter-terrorism measures. Consequently, this has contributed to a rise in the uptake of advanced military devices for combat applications and improving national security, thereby catalyzing the demand for directed energy weapons on the global level. Along with this, there has also been a considerable rise in the threats from hypersonic weapons, particularly missiles, in several geographical locations. Directed energy weapons are increasingly being used in these areas for effective missile destruction during its trajectory. The market is further driven by the escalating need to protect civilians against chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) emergencies across the globe. Moreover, numerous key players are increasingly investing in the integration of directed energy weapons with certain military-based drones and UAVs that are anticipated to offer long-range precision targeting while working remotely, which is expected to provide an impetus to the market growth. Some of the other factors driving the growth of the market include the rising need for weapons employing laser technology in the navy and the advent of high-energy laser (HEL) power to intercept cruise missiles.
