Directed energy weapons (DEW) emits highly focused energy towards a target object or individual in order to damage or disable it. These weapon systems can be either lethal or non-lethal based on their application areas. A DEW system can be deployed in all three formats: land based, naval, and airborne. The low cost of operation and higher accuracy of these weapon systems as compared to conventional weapons is also contributing to the growing demand for DEW systems globally.
The global directed energy weapons market is expected to witness a substantial growth during the forecast period. The increasing demand for crowd control weapons and prevention of adversary situations such as terrorist attacks are boosting the growth of the directed energy weapons, globally. In addition, government initiatives around the world related to development of advanced weaponry for the modern armed troops is also influencing the growth of this market. Countries such as the U.S., Russia, U.K., France, Germany, China, and Israel are presently investing heavily in the development of directed energy weapons
With increasing research initiatives worldwide in directed energy weapons field, technologically enhanced weapons are being developed by the manufacturers which provide better efficiency, accuracy, and low cost per shot benefits as compared to the traditional counterparts. The countries such as India, South Korea, Brazil, UAE, Saudi Arabia and South Africa among others are expected to generate further demand for directed energy weapons market in the recent future. However, the DEW market also encounters some major restraints with influence of humanitarian groups against the use of directed energy weapons, which restrict the growth of the market.
