 Missile Launching System Market to grow by USD 4448.14 million between 2024-2028

According to a research report “ Missile Launching System Market” by Platform (Airborne, Ground, Naval) Type (Tilt emission, Vertical launch, Horizontal emission) Geography (APAC, North America, Europe, Middle East and Africa, South America)- Global Forecast to 2028 published by Technavio, the market size is estimated to grow by USD 4448.14 million at a CAGR of almost 4.57% during the forecast period. The market for Man-Portable Air Defense Systems (MANPADS) has experienced significant growth due to their ability to counteract low-flying aircraft threats. These lightweight, single-operator systems comprise a missile housed in a disposable tube, a gripstock, sights, and a battery. MANPADS have proven essential in neutralizing aircraft utilized for bombing, strafing, reconnaissance, troop support, and information gathering. By incapacitating these aerial assets, enemy combat strategies are substantially weakened..

By Platform, the Airborne segment is projected to dominate the market size in 2024.

The tilt emission segment in the missile launching system market focuses on advanced TEM technologies. These systems enable angled missile launches, enhancing operational flexibility and missile efficiency. TEM allows for missile firing from a stationary position at a set angle, whether from land-based launchers or naval vessels. This results in increased accuracy, extended range, and improved target acquisition. The market offers diverse tilt emission solutions, catering to distinct operational requirements.

By Type, Tilt emission  segment is expected to hold the largest market size for the year 2024.

In the dynamic global market for Missile Launching Systems, the segment focusing on airborne applications holds significant weight. This is driven by the increasing need for advanced aerial defense solutions and the proliferation of airborne activities worldwide. Key stakeholders, including military personnel, defense organizations, and aerospace firms, leverage these systems to enhance their offensive capabilities and secure national interests. The burgeoning demand for airborne missile launching systems is fueled by escalating security threats, geopolitical tensions, and growing defense budgets across nations.

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

In the Asia Pacific (APAC) region, China, India, Japan, and Australia are pivotal players in the missile launching system market due to escalating territorial disputes. Notably, the India-Pakistan conflict over Kashmir, a long-standing issue, continues to intensify with frequent border skirmishes. Meanwhile, the Chinese Navy is bolstering its capabilities with the development of advanced weaponry, including missiles, to counteract potential threats from adversaries in the South China Sea. These geopolitical tensions are driving the demand for robust missile launching systems in APAC.
