The missile defense system market size is projected to grow from USD 23.9 billion in 2021 to USD 29.7 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 4.4% from 2021 to 2026. The market is driven by various factors, such as increasing defense programs of nations to protect against various threats, significant investments in indigenous missile defense systems, increasing need for missile detection systems, and increasing use of early warning systems for potential air and missile attacks.
The missile defense system market will majorly be driven by the increasing use of early warning systems for potential air and missile attacks. Air and missile defense systems are used to monitor various enemy airborne units, such as aircraft, UAVs, and ballistic and cruise missiles. These systems generally use long-range L-band radars and satellites for surveillance. These systems provide early warning and tracking capabilities to command and control systems. Countries such as the US, Russia, China, India, and North Korea have developed intercontinental ballistic missiles, and are working on missiles with hypersonic capabilities. Early warning systems are required to successfully defend against airborne threats. Hence, various countries are investing heavily in the development of such systems. In March 2019, Northrop Grumman Corporation secured a contract worth USD 350 million from the Polish government to develop two battle management systems to assist Polish military authorities in dealing with uncertain information concerning potential air and missile attacks.
The missile defense system market includes major players Lockheed Martin Corporation (US), Boeing Company (US), Raytheon Technologies Corporation (US), Northrop Grumman Corporation (US), and General Dynamics Corporation (US). These players have spread their business across various countries includes North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Rest of the World. COVID-19 has impacted their businesses as well. Industry experts believe that COVID-19 has affected missile defense system production and services globally in 2020.
