The US Army has been considering including short-range air-defense capabilities in brigade combat teams. The emergence of unmanned aerial systems (UASs), cruise missiles, and long-range rockets (LRRs) pose a threat that is required to be addressed with capable systems. This has resulted in the US Army prioritizing SHORAD and reactivating units back to this core competency. However, the procurement of these systems is yet to be facilitated through an intergovernmental contract.
This global shoulder-fired weapons market 2019-2023 research report also analyzes other important trends and market drivers that will affect market growth over 2019-2023.
Global shoulder-fired weapons market: Growth in battlefield digitization
To achieve complete situational awareness and perfect synchronization between sensors and responders in a fast-paced mobile environment, network-centric warfare ensures a thorough integration of sensors, communication networks, command centers, and associated platforms. Also, the electro-optic systems on land are observed to be useful in tracking armored vehicles and low-observable missiles, which helps platoons to strategize their approach.
Global shoulder-fired weapons market: Segmentation analysis
This shoulder-fired weapons market analysis report segments the market by technology (unguided and guided), product (ammunition and launcher), and geography (APAC, Europe, MEA, South America, and North America).
The ammunition segment held the largest shoulder-fired weapons market share in 2018. This is because of the rapid adoption of shoulder-fired weapon systems as they require ammunition to ensure long-term and reliable operation of the weapon.
North America accounted for the highest share of the market in 2018. The US is the pioneer of shoulder-fired weaponry in this region and projects military dominance owing to steady growth in the procurement of advanced weapon systems. The changing nature of warfare is encouraging US DoD's increased spending toward better weapons.
