Global Cruise Missile Market to Reach US$ 3.3 Billion by 2032, Impelled by Growing Incidences of Border Conflicts

March 17, 2023 | Aerospace and Defense

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Cruise Missile Market Report by Launch Platform (Air, Surface Combatants, Land, Submarine), Speed (Subsonic, Supersonic, Hypersonic), Range (Short-range Missiles, Medium-range Missiles, Long-range Missiles), Application (Attack, Defensive), and Region 2024-2032," the global cruise missile market size reached US$ 1.9 Billion in 2023. A cruise missile refers to strategic guided equipment that is capable of carrying a conventional or a nuclear warhead. It is equipped with a contour map that is stored in the system’s computerized memory, that helps in navigation during the flight. Additionally, it is guided by an inertial guidance system (IGS), terrain contour matching (Tercom), a global positioning system (GPS) and digital scene-matching area correlation (DSMAC) that assist in placing a special or ordnance payload on a target. It is a small, pilotless plane that consists of a wingspan, which is powered by turbofan engines and sustains flight through aerodynamic lift for its flight path. Due to its property to provide an alternate means to deliver a lethal payload accurately and rapidly to a target, there has been a considerable rise in the demand for cruise missiles across the globe.

Global Cruise Missile Market Trends:

The global market is primarily driven by significant growth in the defense sector. Along with this, the increasing investments by private and public agencies to upgrade the overall military infrastructure are providing a boost to the market. Moreover, the growing concerns regarding border threats due to the rising geopolitical conflicts are a major driving factor for cruise missiles across the globe. Apart from this, continual technological advancements, such as the integration of the internet of things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) with cruise missiles, are creating a positive market outlook. Furthermore, rapid advancements in 3D machinery that help in designing improved components and structures are acting as a growth-inducing factor. In addition to this, numerous leading players are focusing on the development of new nuclear capabilities that are anticipated to generate demand for cruise missiles on the global level. Other factors, including rapid urbanization and extensive research and development (R&D) activities conducted by key players to introduce enhanced product variants, are also positively influencing the market. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 3.3 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.3% during 2024-2032.
