Based on weapon type, the weapons carriage and release system market has been classified into missiles, bombs, rockets, and torpedoes. The missiles segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the weapons carriage and release system market in 2021. The growth of this segment can be attributed to the increased deployment of missiles in fighter aircraft, helicopters, and combat support aircraft for a range of operations. Fighter aircraft deploy missiles according to mission needs. They carry air-to-air and air-to-ground missiles having varied range and capabilities. Weapons carriage and release systems are used to carry and release single and multiple missiles. Companies such as ALKAN, L3Harris Corporation, Cobham PLC, and Marvin Engineering, among others, provide weapons carriage and release systems for carrying single and multiple missiles.
Based on end use, the weapons carriage and release system market has been classified into original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and aftermarket. The OEM is estimated to be a larger market then aftermarket segment. The weapons carriage and release systems installed in new aircraft are covered under the OEM segment. This segment includes the installation of weapons carriage and release systems in various airborne platforms, including fighter aircraft, combat support aircraft, helicopters, and UAVs. The OEM segment is expected to grow at a higher CAGR. This can be attributed to the increasing inventory of newly inducted airborne platforms, including unmanned aerial vehicles, fourth-, fifth-, and sixth-generation fighter aircraft, and helicopters. The use of these airborne platforms is increasing in applications such as anti-submarine warfare, air-to-ground support, and air defense roles. Moreover, the development of new missiles such as beyond-visual-range missiles, anti-radiation missiles, etc., for newly inducted platforms have also added to the demand at the OEM level.
Based on platform, the weapons carriage and release system market has been classified into fighter aircraft, combat support aircraft, helicopters, and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The fighter aircraft segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the weapons carriage and release system market in 2021. The growth of this segment can be attributed to the increasing procurement of fighter aircraft for defense and offensive missions across the world. Fighter jets are equipped with weapons carriage and release systems for the delivery of weapons and other payloads. Fighter jets have weapon stations/hardpoints to carry a certain amount of payload. For instance, the Mirage 2000 and the F-16 have a total of nine hardpoints. Other aircraft have around 9 to 12 hardpoints. Pylons are used on wing stations to carry loads. They provide the ability to carry, deploy, and jettison external stores—weapons, pods, fuel tanks, or other ammunition. Fighter aircraft also have racks, launchers, and adapters for the delivery of munitions. Some of the common fighter jets that are being used across the world include F-16, Su-30, Eurofighter Typhoon, Dassault Rafale, Mig-29, and others.
Based on region, North America is projected to grow at the highest rate within the weapons carriage and release system market from 2021 to 2026. Significant investments in R&D activities for the development of advanced weapons carriage and release systems by key players and increased demand for fighter aircraft fleet are some of the factors expected to fuel the growth of the weapons carriage and release system market in this region. The US is expected to drive the growth of the North American weapons carriage and release system market during the forecast period, owing to easy access to various innovative technologies and significant investments being made by manufacturers in the country for the development of improved military weapon systems. Several developments have taken place in the field of weapons carriage and release system in the region. For instance, as per DoD 2019 – Five Year Plan, the US is projected to induct more than 1500 F-35s in the coming years. This is expected to result in an increasing demand for weapon carriage and release systems. Companies such as Harris, Cobham, and others are focusing on the development of internal carriage and release systems for fifth-generation aircraft.
