The loitering munition market is segmented into five major regions—North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America. In 2022, Middle East & Africa led the loitering munition market with a substantial revenue share, followed by North America and Europe. 

The armed forces across different countries are investing heavily in procuring ammunition and munitions, which is another major factor aiding the growth of the loitering munition market. Further, the rising tension between the countries of different regions is another major factor driving the demand for loitering munitions. For instance, the constant tension across countries such as India-Pakistan, China-Taiwan, China-India, Russia-Ukraine, and Russia-US is fueling the need to strengthen the armed forces of these countries. Hence, the armed forces of these countries are focusing on the procurement of smart munitions. Some of the contracts provided by different armed forces for loitering munitions are mentioned below:

In February 2023, Edge Group entity HALCON won a contract worth US$ 299.48 million from the UAE armed forces to provide HUNTER 2-S (swarming), HUNTER 5, and HUNTER 10 loitering munitions.

In December 2022, UVision bagged a contract from the defense ministry of Argentina to supply HERO-120 and HERO-30 loitering munitions.

In October 2022, Innovaero—an aerospace OEM that deals in developing medium to large autonomous unmanned aerial systems (UAS)—signed a contract with the Australian Department of Defence to develop a sovereign loitering munition with a range of 200 km and a choice of payloads.

In September 2022, Rheinmetall and UVision won a contract of an undisclosed amount to supply Hero loitering munitions to a NATO military force in Europe.

In February 2021, Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) bagged three contracts worth more than US$ 100 million from Asian countries to supply loitering munition systems.

Such contracts are pushing the loitering munition market players to develop new and innovative products to remain competitive in such an emerging market. Also, the increasing number of contracts for loitering munitions is contributing to the loitering munition market growth across different regions.

Loitering Munition Market: COVID-19 Overview

The COVID-19 pandemic severely impacted several businesses and economies across the globe. Lockdowns imposed by governments of various countries affected the global manufacturing sectors, supply chains, and logistics operations owing to the complete or partial discontinuation of industrial activities. The military sectors experienced temporary discontinuation of operations across various production facilities, which ultimately hampered the procurement of loitering munition. For instance, according to the Lockheed Martin Corporation annual report 2021, the production facilities of the company were temporarily shut down, which adversely affected the output from its manufacturing units in 2020. The production rate was decreased and resulted in delays, which hindered the loitering munition market growth. Thus, supply chain disruptions and loss of production led to declined revenues for several countries and enterprises across the globe. Thus, due to such factors the loitering munitions market size witnessed a decline in 2020.
