A directed-energy weapon (DEW) is a ranged system that emits focused energy to produce powerful beams to damage or destroy adversary personnel and equipment. It is divided into laser, high-power sonic, particle beam, and high-power microwave (HPM) technologies. As compared to traditional munitions, these systems offer higher precision engagement, instant light delivery, and better transmission of lethal force at minimal operational costs. Apart from this, DEW prevents collateral damage, provides highly focused energy without solid projects,  stealth-like performance with noise-free beams, and eliminates logistical issues of procuring more ammunitions. Consequently, DEW is widely installed in military ships, aircraft, and unmanned vehicles (UMVs).

Market Trends and Drivers:

The growth of the global directed energy weapons market can be attributed to the increasing threat of terrorism and escalating geopolitical tensions and conflicts among neighboring countries. In continuation, the growing need for modernized lethal military electronic warfare and defense systems to retaliate against chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) emergencies and attacks is further supplementing the product demand. Additionally, the significant expansion in the military and defense sector and rising investments in army arsenals, including UMVs, drones, ballistic missiles, and anti-satellite weapons, are also supporting the market growth. Besides this, the advent of advanced DEW technologies in terms of miniaturization and lethality for defense applications to tackle changing military tactics and strategic collaborations amongst manufacturers to engineer military capacities with laser weapon demonstrators are providing lucrative opportunities for the market.
