U.S. Rockets and Missiles Report Highlights

  • The cruise missiles segment dominated the market in 2023. The United States possesses a diverse arsenal of cruise missiles, exemplified by the Tomahawk and the AGM-158 Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile (JASSM). Launchable from submarines, ships, and aircraft, these missiles provide the U.S. military with a flexible and potent strategic capability. Cruise missiles play a pivotal role in modern warfare by offering precision targeting and minimizing collateral damage. Throughout the various branches of the U.S. military, an extensive deployment of cruise missiles, including the subsonic, turbofan-powered AGM-129A, underscores their significant role in contemporary military operations.
  • The Surface-to-Surface segment led the market in 2023 and is expected to maintain its dominance. These missiles can be launched from hand-held devices, fixed ground installations or vehicles, or ships. The propulsion system typically involves a rocket engine or, alternately, an explosive charge, suitable for platforms that are either stationary or moving at slow speeds. To ensure stability and lift, these missiles are equipped with wings or fins, although hyper-velocity or short-range missiles may utilize body lift or follow a ballistic trajectory.
  • The U.S. key market players include Lockheed Martin, Frontier Electronic Systems, L3Harris Technologies, Raytheon, Northrop Grumman Corporation.
