The remote weapon systems industry is projected to reach a value of 22 Bn through the end of 2029. The high expenditure by countries around the world on modernization initiatives for military equipment is a key factor bolstering revenue. The demand is also supported by the use of remote weapon systems in armored fighting vehicles and main battle tanks, which will continue to aid the growth of the remote weapon system market. The growth of the market in the near future can be widely be attributed to the applications in ground force equipment, reveals Fact.MR in its new study.

“A number of nations around the world are increasingly replacing older equipment and weapons with a major transition towards modern alternatives and are investing higher amounts in adopting remote weapon systems,” says the Fact.MR report.

Remote Weapon Systems Market – Key Constraints

  • Issues with installation and operations, associated with remote controlled equipment is a continued challenge being faced by manufacturers.

Anticipated Impact of Covid-19 Outbreak

Unmanned weapon systems with varying autonomous functionalities are expected to gain demand by governments looking to effectively handle the current coronavirus outbreak. Law enforcement agencies are increasingly paying attention to the potential applications of drone systems to track potential spread of the coronavirus outbreak. Non-lethal weapons and remote-controlled systems could provide major tactical benefits.

Further, the coronavirus outbreak is likely to result in further issues of economic inequality and political instability around the world, owing to the break down in supply chain and issues of unemployment. Consequently, non-lethal remote weapon systems such as tasers will gain traction among law enforcement, which could potentially be used to control mob incidents. However, the increased use of non-lethal armed robotic systems in law enforcement is being viewed with skepticism and concerns about human rights violations, which is a challenge for the industry.
