Cruise missile refers to an unmanned, self-propelled and guided missile used for delivering targeted warheads with enhanced precision. It can self-navigate, fly on a non-ballistic and low-altitude trajectory and travel at supersonic and hypersonic speeds. Cruise missiles consist of a guidance, payload and aircraft propulsion system that is enclosed in an airframe and can be launched using land, sea and air-based platforms. They use various technologies, such as terrain mapping, global positioning systems (GPS), inertial guidance, motion sensors and gyroscopes to maintain a pre-programmed flight path. The missiles are also programmed for surface-to-surface, surface-to-air, air-to-air, air-to-surface and subsea to surface launch modes. They use solid, liquid, hybrid, ramjet, turbojet and scramjet propulsion systems.
Cruise Missile Market Trends:
The rising incidence of cross-border agitations and terrorist activities across the globe is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. Cruise missiles are crucial for enforcing defense strategies and countering terrorist threats and political and territorial issues. Moreover, the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) technology in defense systems for enhanced situational awareness and target precision is providing a thrust to the market growth. Various technological advancements, such as the development of innovative hypersonic cruise missiles that can travel faster than the speed of sound, are acting as other growth-inducing factors. These missiles are highly powerful and can be used for delivering long-range strategic nuclear strikes. Novel variants are also resistant to electronic countermeasures and are equipped with angular thrusters to reposition the missile horizontally and maneuver against airstrikes. Other factors, including the rapid modernization of existing defense systems, along with the widespread adoption of 3D printed missile components and structures, are anticipated to drive the market toward growth.
