The report forecasts the global DEW market to grow at a CAGR of 29.03% during the period 2016-2020.
A directed-energy weapon (DEW) is the future weapon system that emits highly focused energy for target destruction. The potential applications of this advanced technology include anti-personnel weapon systems, missile defense system, and the disabling of lightly armored vehicles.
The report has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
The increase in the defense budget in most of the developing countries has resulted in an increase in R&D. There is a continuous need for the development of DEW systems and equipment in law enforcement to protect people and national security. Changing environments and emerging technologies have resulted in the defense departments of different countries to develop new and improved weapons and equipment. For example, the guns that do not overheat and require low maintenance are being developed.
According to the report, the growing demand for non-lethal weapons is a primary driver of the market. We expect that countries such as Russia, the US, the UK, Israel, China, Japan, South Korea, India, and the UAE will increase their demand for non-lethal weapons, during the forecast period owing to the increasing extremist attacks, mob fights, and territorial disputes.
