By Product Type, the Command guidance system segment is projected to dominate the market size in 2024.

In the global missile guidance system market, cruise missiles represent the largest market segment. These missiles are designed to target terrestrial or naval objectives that remain in the Earth's atmosphere, flying a significant portion of their flight path at a consistent speed. Cruise missiles, available in subsonic, supersonic, and hypersonic variants, are essential for engaging high-value targets such as dams, necessitating continuous research and development efforts. The advancement of cruise missile technology is a significant growth driver for the missile guidance system market.

By Application, Cruise missiles  segment is expected to hold the largest market size for the year 2024.

In the missile guidance system market, command guidance systems represent a cost-effective solution for military applications. These systems enable precise missile navigation by transmitting guidance signals from the launch site to the missile. Onboard missile logic receives control signals to correct deviations, ensuring alignment with the target's line of sight. Ground computers compute deviations and transmit updated commands, utilizing wire links, radar, or infrared sensors for positioning. Command guidance systems offer a significant advantage by requiring minimal onboard hardware, reducing missile size and weight.

APAC is forecasted to hold the largest market size by region in 2024.
