Market Highlights:

Infrared guided munitions Market Growth Size is expected to reach USD 32.7 Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 4.4% during 2020-2030.

Guided munitions, also known as smart weapons, smart munitions, or guided ammunition, can be aimed and directed at single or multiple targets. It relies on external guidance or its own guidance systems. It can be launched from aircraft, ships, submarines, and land vehicles.


The increased focus on developing autonomous weapons and countering terror activities have led to the increasing demand for the development of guided munitions. The increased focus on procurement of smart weapons will enable manufacturers in offering new growth opportunities to the market players.


However, there are some shortcomings such as extremely complicated guidance system and restricted range of manoeuvrability, which will restrain the growth of this Infrared guided munitions Market Growth.


Europe is witnessing high demand for Infrared guided munitions market Insight Increased procurement of smart weapons by the developed countries such as Germany, the U.K, and France has bolstered the demand for guided munitions in the European region.


Furthermore, in 2018, the Lockheed Martin signed a contract with U.S. Navy for follow-on production of Enhanced Laser Guided Training Rounds to support the Paveway II Laser Guided Bomb (LGB) weapons training. Similarly, in 2014, Boeing signed a contract with the U.S. Air Force to work on manufacturing arming devices for Air-Launched Cruise Missile (ALCM), which is a long-range subsonic, self-guided missile, helping to ensure the readiness of the system.
