Global Directed Energy Weapons Market: Snapshot
Most directed energy weapons (DEW) present the very unique
advantage over conventional weapons of ammunition cost reduction.
The cost per shot of directed energy weapons is far lesser than the
same for conventional weapons. A DEW missile defense weapon, for
instance, shoots high powered laser beams at an incoming missile to
overheat it and cause it to explode. Conventional methods employed
include shooting at the missile with land to air weapons that consume a
large amount of ammunition to get the job done. Therefore, DEWs not
only consume lesser dollars per shot, but also require fewer shots. This
is currently the key advantage that clients demanding for directed
energy weapons are looking forward to.

Directed energy weapons are also versatile in utility as they can be used
in warfare as well as in crowd control situations. DEWs are highly
effective in dispersing crowds and riots and have been seeing an
increase in use across the world. An example of a commonly used nonlethal crowd control DEW includes the Active Denial System.
As a result of the above factors and others, the global market for
directed energy weapons is expected to progress at a CAGR of 20.8%
within a forecast period from 2014 to 2020, in terms of revenue. The
market is expected to reach US$5.21 bn by the end of 2020.
North America to Report Reduced Consumption of Directed Energy
North America is expected to remain the leading consumer of directed
energy weapons till 2020, by when it is expected to take up 52.9% of
the global market’s value. While this is actually a drop in share value,
the geographical segment is still the leading one. The demand for
weapons in general is expected to reduce in North America due to the
significant budget cuts made by the U.S. in its defense sector. Being one
of the strongest defense bodies in the world, a reduction in
consumption is a major hit to most globally prominent directed energy
weapons players.
This reduction in demand from developed economies can be offset by
focusing on the booming economies of the developing ones, where
there is a strong growth in weapons and ammunitions consumption.
The introduction of directed energy weapons is expected to be slower
than that in developed economies due to lower awareness rate, but
players can find major opportunities in Asia Pacific and Latin America
over the coming years.

Land Based Directed Energy Weapons to Witness Considerable Demand
Airborne, land based, and naval are the three deployment types of
directed energy weapons. Of these, land based directed energy
weapons are expected to take up 43.5% of the global market value by
2020. This leading share in the market is a result of the growing number
of land based programs currently being offered and under
development. These include the Active Denial System, the WB-1
Microwave directed energy weapons, and the iron beam. Countries
have already committed to building land based directed energy
weapons that are extremely efficient, deadly, and accurate, further
boosting the scope of growth that directed energy weapons
manufacturers can get in land based deployment.
