Global Close in Weapon Systems Market is valued approximately at USD 5.35 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 10.81% over the forecast period 2021-2027. A close-in weapon system is a point-defense weapon system placed on a navy warship that is meant to identify and kill short-range incoming missiles and enemy aircraft that have breached the outer defence. CIWS systems are installed on almost every group of bigger modern warships. There are two different types of CIWS systems in use. A gun-based CIWS generally comprises of a spinning turret equipped with radars, computers, and multi-barrel rotary guns. Missile-based CIWS direct missiles to target enemy aircraft or other threats using infrared, passive radar, or semi-active radar terminal guidance. The market is driven by increase in the global military fleet, internal and external security threats and growing instances of asymmetric warfare. For instance, The Canadian government approved Raytheon a USD 570 million contract in January 2018 for the maintenance and modernization of 21 Phalanx Close-in Weapon Systems installed on the navy fleet. Furthermore, rise in government investment in private companies propel the market growth further. Under the Make in India programme, the Indian Ministry of Defence (MoD) launched a tender for more than USD 1.5 billion in January 2018 to acquire 61 units of CIWS from local manufacturers. Under the ’buy and make’ section of the defence procurement procedure, Indian companies would be allowed to partner with foreign manufacturers to produce weapon systems. However, ongoing economic shutdown may impede market growth over the forecast period of 2021-2027.

In North America, the United States and Canada are major user of CIWS, and they are currently updating their existing vehicle fleets and capabilities. The US defence budget for FY2021 prioritizes military system development in order to compete with China and Russia on the worldwide scene, while also focusing on day-to-day operations for ongoing wars, crisis response, and partner involvement. Defense contractors are expected to pursue the manufacture of existing CIWS while performing substantial R&D for future systems, according to the defence budget provisions for 2021.
