Smart Weapons Market Trends:

Rapid transformation in warfare tactics, increasing geopolitical tensions, and the rising need for highly precise ammunitions are mainly contributing to the widespread adoption of smart weapons across the globe. Additionally, governments of various nations are continuously investing in research and development (R&D) activities to engineer electronic warfare (EW) systems integrated with light detection and ranging (LiDAR), global positioning system (GPS), and augmented reality (AR) technologies. Such advancements help the personnel with self-respond or on-strike decisions, which is acting as a growth-inducing factor. Apart from this, upgrades of existing missiles and ammunition with biometric locks for enhanced security are creating a positive outlook for the market.
