Directed Energy Weapons Market

Directed Energy Weapon Companies - Raytheon Technologies Corporation (US), Northrop Grumman Corporation (US) are the Key Players

The Directed Energy Weapon Market is projected to grow from USD 5.3 Billion in 2022 to USD 12.9 Billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 19.6% from 2022 to 2027.

A Directed Energy Weapon is a ranged weapon that damages its target with highly focused energy, including lasers, microwaves, and particle beams. Potential applications of this technology include weapons that target personnel, missiles, vehicles, and optical devices. Extensive research into DEW sources and the concurrent advances in beam directing technology have pushed technology envelop to the level where fully configured DEW systems are now being designed and tested for imminent deployment. Advances in material technology, information technology, and space-based capabilities of the 21st century are also providing the right environment for the growing demand for directed energy weapon systems.
