The global directed energy weapons market experienced robust growth during 2014-2019.

A directed energy weapon (DEW) refers to an immensely sophisticated weapon system that emits highly focused energy for target destruction. It operates at the speed of light and generates streams of laser, microwave and electromagnetic energy that can be aimed precisely over long distances to destroy the targets. Some of the commonly used DEW equipment includes lasers, radiation detectors and biosensors. They can be installed in ships, land vehicles, aircraft, unmanned vehicles (UMVs) and guns. They are used in anti-personnel weapon systems, countering speedy missiles, such as hypersonic cruise missiles and ballistic missiles, and for disabling lightly armored vehicles. They offer various advantages, such as enhanced accuracy, controlled damage and multiple target attacks.

The market for these weapons is primarily being driven by an alarming increase in armed conflicts, violence and terrorism across the globe. Furthermore, the escalating need for military modernization is providing a thrust to the market growth. DEW equipment is extensively used to secure national security and civilians against chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) emergencies. It also aids in improving the efficiency of fire department personnel, police and paramilitary forces. Additionally, widespread utilization of DEW equipment in UAVs and drones is acting as other growth-inducing factors. They are highly efficient against fast-moving objects and have a long-range with precise targeting capabilities. Other factors, including favorable government policies to improve the defense infrastructure and enhanced focus on research and development (R&D) activities, are projected to drive the market further. Looking forward, the analyst expects the global directed energy weapons market to continue its strong growth during the next five years.
