The global cluster munitions market to grow at a CAGR of 2.08% during the period 2016-2020.
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global cluster munitions market for 2016-2020. To calculate the market size, the analyst considers the revenue generated from the sales of cluster munitions across several industries.
One of the latest trends gaining traction in the market is the growing prominence of Alternative Warhead Program (AWP). Recently, Orbital ATK has signed a contract with the US Army for the development and provision of Guided Multiple Launch Rocket System (GMLRS) Alternative Warhead to replace the regulated cluster bombs. These alternative warheads are an advanced version of cluster munitions which aims at the complete elimination of unexploded ordnances. These advanced guided weapons have no long-term threat as cluster munitions and do not restrict the movement of soldiers.
According to the report, the cost-effectiveness and easy deployment of cluster munitions over ICBMs and submarine-launched ballistic missiles (SLBMs) are the prime reasons why many countries still opt for the development of cluster munitions. Moreover, specific launching systems are required for launching ICBMs or the SLBMs; cluster munitions, on the contrary, can be launched from a fighter aircraft. In addition, the effect would be over a larger area than other bombs.
Further, the report states that a cluster munition threats are not limited to soldiers or battlefields but also affect civilians, residential places, and medical institutions. These bombs pose an immediate threat to the lives of civilians during conflicts by randomly scattering submunitions over a wide area. They continue to pose threats after conflicts, as the remnants or submunitions that do not detonate upon impact can become a greater hazard in the future. As of 2016, more than 98% of the cluster bomb victims are civilians, of which over 40% were children.
