Directed Energy Weapons Market Size Worth $22.10 Billion By 2032 | CAGR: 9.30%

Directed Energy Weapons Market Size Worth $22.10 Billion By 2032 | CAGR: 9.30%

The global directed energy weapons market size is expected to reach USD 22.10 billion by 2032, according to a new study by Polaris Market Research. The report “Directed Energy Weapons Market Share, Size, Trends, Industry Analysis Report, By Lethality (Non-Lethal and Lethal); By Technology; By Application; By Platform; By Region; Segment Forecast, 2024 - 2032” gives a detailed insight into current market dynamics and provides analysis on future market growth.

The acquisition of brand-new air, land, and sea platforms is being accelerated by the rapid rise in military spending in both developed and developing nations as a result of rising geopolitical tensions. The military is investing in the integration of cutting-edge weapon systems like directed energy weapons into vehicles, which is propelling the market's expansion.

The U.S. Army publications' Multi-Domain Suppression of Enemy Air Defense study claims that technical developments in air defense systems have improved the ability to fend off international air forces' efforts to suppress and destroy airspace. To provide air superiority to its Air Forces' assets over the predicted period, ground forces will need the ability to fight next-generation integrated multi-layer air defense systems.

Conventional blast and fragmentation weapons cannot achieve a technical breakthrough for upcoming warfare scenarios, claim military strategists and defense specialists. Next-generation weapons technology is expected to be sophisticated and technologically mature, with DE weapons scheduled to be at the forefront of these efforts. DE weapons are predicted to meet conventional and current kinetic energy weapons' performance criteria by the middle of the 2030s.

A refugee crisis, sanctions against Russia, a shift in the geopolitical environment, and a revitalized NATO are just a few of the dramatic impacts of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine. In response to the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, nations worldwide are boosting their defense spending and investing in global hypersonic and directed-energy weapons.

The Armed Forces Research Laboratory created the Tactical High-power Operational Responder (THOR) for the U.S. Air Force. Using focused microwaves, the technology decapitates and destroys flying targets, particularly UAVs. Moreover, the US Army had just completed testing of the brand-new DE Maneuver Short-Range Air Defense (DE M-SHORAD). Although DE M-SHORAD is intended to be a counter-UAS weapon, it also can intercept rockets, artillery rounds, ATGMs, and mortars.
