Aerial Smart Weapons Market size was valued at USD 15,383.3 Million in 2023 and is poised to grow at a significant CAGR of 4.7% from 2024-2030. A smart weapon uses a guidance system to hit targets with greater accuracy. These are air-to-ground missiles, sensor-fused weapons, steerable bombs, and guided weapons with satellite or laser guidance systems. Furthermore, satellite-guided bombs are equipped with guidance computers that use navigation satellites to confirm the target. Using smart technology, cruise missiles can use navigation satellite information to stay on course. India's Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) successfully tested a newly developed Smart Anti-Airfield Weapon (SAAW) equipped on the Hawk-I jet set by Hindustan Aeronautics Limited on January 22, 2021. (HAL). Based on the product type, the global aerial smart weapons market is segmented into Missiles, Ammunition, and Other Products. The Missiles segment is anticipated to grow at a significant CAGR over the forecast years owing to increasing demand for advanced guided missiles from the defense forces. In September 2019, BAE Systems signed a USD 2,680 million contract with the United States and nine other countries to provide a semi-guided missile weapons system until 2025. The ammunition segment is expected to grow fastest during the forecast period. The rise in demand for next-generation precision-guided munitions is attributed to increased terrorist activity, political unrest, and cross-border conflicts worldwide. The key factors driving the aerial smart weapons market are significant increases in defense budgets by both developed and developing nations, an increased use rate of advanced weapons, and changing aerial warfare worldwide. Aerial smart weapons systems and guided systems have also advanced technologically.

Aerial Smart Weapons Market Key Developments:
  • In February 2021, Lockheed Martin Corporation signed a deal worth USD 414 million with the U.S. Navy and Air Force to provide LRASM. It is an anti-ship, precision-guided standoff missile based on the effective joint air-to-ground standoff missile.

Aerial Smart Weapons Market Dynamics

The growing emphasis on reducing reliance on weapon system imports, several nations are focusing on developing indigenous weapon systems, fueling the market growth. The existing compatibility limitations of indigenous air defense systems with ammunition and armament designed by foreign manufacturers add to this emphasis. Due to these factors, several countries are focusing on developing their smart weapons that can be launched from various platforms, including military aircraft. For example, India's Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) is working on a long-range precision-guided anti-airfield weapon called the Smart Anti-Airfield Weapon (SAAW). Moreover, it is also reported that the United States is transferring critical technologies to countries such as Saudi Arabia in order to assist them in developing their own aerial smart weapons. Such advancements are expected to aid in the indigenous development of smart weapons, propelling the market growth during the forecast period.
