Luton, Bedfordshire, United Kingdom, March 10, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Exactitude Consultancy, the market research and consulting wing of Ameliorate Digital Consultancy Private Limited has completed and published the final copy of the detailed research report on the Precision Guided Munition Market.

The global precision guided munition market size is estimated to be valued at USD 28.92 billion in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 45.25 billion by 2029, recording a CAGR of 5.1%. The market for precision guided munitions is poised to grow as a result of a consistent rise in defense budgets worldwide and the need for advanced weaponry to counter modern combat scenarios at national borders. Another key driver of the market is the growing number of conflicts and high levels of defense spending globally. Several governments, including those of the US, China, India, and Russia, are investing heavily in modernizing their military capabilities, leading to an increasing number of weapon manufacturers shifting their focus towards the development of precision guided munitions. Nonetheless, the integration of missiles presents a challenge to the growth of the precision guided munitions market.

Drivers and Restraints Factor:

Increasing demand for precision guided munitions to minimize collateral damage

The majority of nations abide by the Law of Armed Conflicts (LOAC) and endeavor to limit collateral damage, which encompasses the inadvertent destruction of civilian items and casualties. Circular Error Probability (CEP) measures the precision of weapons, and precision-guided munitions possess lower CEP, which is essential in minimizing collateral damage and civilian casualties. Regardless of whether it is a low-intensity conflict operation such as counter-insurgency and counterterrorism or a high-intensity conventional conflict, casualties have significant implications in terms of public opinion and policies. In today's digital era, precision-guided munitions aid in making better decisions and reducing collateral damage, thus avoiding casualties in the aftermath. Moreover, precision-guided munitions effectively neutralize threats as targets on battlefields are dispersed, mobile, and maneuverable.

The nature of warfare has shifted from conventional border-to-border engagements to urban-centric warfare, making precision strikes crucial for providing indirect fire capability in complex terrains where low-angle fire is required to neutralize targets. The rising utilization of satellite networks, navigation aids, and drones to eliminate high-value and distant targets is a key factor driving the demand for precision-guided munitions.

Stringent regulations related to arms transfer

State-owned defense organizations must comply with federal and legislative rules and regulations, including import-export control regimes, exchange controls, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, and the Export Administration Act. In many countries, munition manufacturers are prohibited from exporting their products, limiting their ability to serve international customers and hindering their access to global markets.

The issue of transferring technologies and weapons has been exacerbated by terrorist organizations gaining access to advanced weaponry such as anti-tank guided weapons and advanced land mines. As a result, there are strict controls on the transfer of technologies and weapons to other nations, which acts as a hindrance to the growth of the Precision Guided Munition Market.

Regional Insights

In 2021, Asia Pacific held the largest revenue share of the global precision-guided munition market, accounting for over 31%, and is projected to continue this trend with the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. The region's major players in tactical warfare include China, South Korea, India, North Korea, Pakistan, and Japan. The increasing tensions between countries in the region and the need to strengthen their defense capabilities are expected to drive the demand for precision-guided munitions. India, for example, has enhanced its missile capabilities with the addition of advanced missiles such as Prithvi, Agni, and Brahmos due to its ongoing conflict with Pakistan. Technological advancements and collaborations with foreign defense departments for modern war equipment are also expected to increase the penetration of guided weapons.

The ongoing conflict between Iran and the U.S. has resulted in enhancements in the military operations of both countries, leading to an increased demand for precision-guided munitions in the near future. The U.S. military's strong research and development capabilities have led to the development of long-range missiles and rockets with precision targeting capabilities. In Europe, the presence of prominent manufacturers and high investments in military operations by economies such as the U.K., Germany, France, Italy, and Russia are anticipated to boost the regional market. Military developments in Russia are also expected to lead to the development of improved artillery and missiles, further driving the demand for precision-guided munitions in the region
