The Market for Air-To-Air Missiles

This analysis covers the air-to-air missile market, which consists of three general segments: short-, medium-, and long-range systems. These categories can vary in interpretation from country to country and should not be considered absolutes, since medium-range systems can fulfill long-range requirements depending on the specified needs of the purchasing country. Even some short-range missiles are able to perform medium-range aerial engagements.


The Market for Anti-Ship Missiles

Anti-ship missiles remain a key weapon in arsenals of navies around the world.  They are still the easiest and least expensive way to increase the firepower of a naval force, especially smaller craft. This analysis is the result of an exhaustive macro-level examination of the market, as well as a competitive review of more than 55 individual missile models versus their direct and indirect competitors.


The Market for Anti-Tank Missiles

This analysis is the result of an exhaustive macro-level examination of the market as well as a competitive review of more than 50 individual missile models versus their direct and indirect competitors.  The main battle tank will remain an integral part of modern force structures for the foreseeable future.

It also reviews 18 weapons systems, and covers the full scope of this vibrant market – from the Alcotan-100 man-portable anti-armor weapon to the Wasp.


The Market for Self-Propelled Artillery Systems

In an age of smart bombs and tactical missiles, tube artillery remains the most cost-effective means of rapidly delivering large amounts of munitions on a target within a 50-kilometer range. This analysis covers 11 types of artillery systems worldwide.


The Market for Strike Missiles

The expanding use of precision-guided munitions by the United States and its allies has helped focus attention on stand-off attack missiles.  The number of countries interested in providing their militaries with long-range strike missiles is growing steadily. This analysis is the result of an exhaustive macro-level examination of the market as well as a competitive review of 55 individual missile models versus their direct and indirect competitors.


The Market for Surface-to-Air Missiles

Although surface-to-air missiles (SAMs) have seldom been used in active combat in recent years, their production is still anticipated to remain active over the next decade.  This analysis is the result of an exhaustive macro-level examination of the market as well as a competitive review of more than 90 individual missile models, ranging from man-portable to theater ballistic defense weapons, versus their direct and indirect competitors.


The Market for Tanks

The market for main battle tanks has evolved dramatically over the last decade, and continues to attract a number of competitors. Yet, despite the product glut, the market remains vibrant and lucrative for those players with successful programs. This analysis is the result of an exhaustive macro-level examination of the market as well as a competitive review of individual tank models versus their direct and indirect competitors.


The Market for UAV Reconnaissance Systems

The unmanned air vehicle market features several general segments. These include man-portable UAVs, tactical UAVs, and medium-altitude, long-endurance (MALE) and high-altitude, long-endurance (HALE) UAVs. This analysis is the result of an exhaustive macro-level examination of the segments as well as a competitive review of individual UAV models versus their direct and indirect competitors.


The Market for Unmanned Ground Vehicles

Although unmanned ground vehicles lag behind their airborne counterparts in terms of units produced and revenues generated, these systems are benefiting from the circumstances that propelled the phenomenal growth of the former. The fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as the rising terrorism threat, is fueling growing demand for UGVs of all types.


The Market for Unmanned Naval Surface and Underwater Systems

Unmanned naval surface vessels and unmanned underwater vehicles perform a variety of missions. These missions can include reconnaissance, mine countermeasures, and anti-submarine warfare (ASW). In addition, some of these systems can simulate hostile threats during naval exercises, as well as acting as decoys. The worldwide requirement for vehicles of both types is growing. As the sophistication of these systems increases, these systems will fulfill more missions and require less human supervision.
