Contemporary military operating environment needs a wide range of tools to respond to a numerous regular and irregular threats. Also, in certain cases, conventional weapons have proved to be inadequate and therefore their dominance is slowing fading away with technological developments. As a result, countries across the world that are trying to seek predominance in military terms are allocating time and resources to make optimum use of laser technology in weapons and other systems for military applications on land, air, space, maritime, and battlefield. Therefore, the military laser systems market is expected to be driven by the development of laser systems during the forecast period.
Previously, most laser weapons needed a large power supply that were stuck to a permanent base. However, owing to advancements in laser technology, the systems have become small and powerful to serve military applications efficiently. Also, these days, they have unlimited firing capacity and do not need deployed expensive ordinance to operate. Thus, the laser technology available today require no ammunition and can defend lightweight ground vehicles, small sized drones, small attack boats and rockets.
Key factor driving the growth of the military laser systems market include the increasing awareness of the potential of laser systems in military applications and high investment for its successful execution. Also, several countries are benefitting from low volume and light-weight military laser systems such as laser rangefinders and target designators, thus encouraging others to implement the same and driving the market further.
