Key Market Trends

Intercontinental Segment to Witness Highest Growth

During the forecast period, it is expected that by range segment, the intercontinental ballistic missiles will register the highest growth rate. Owing to the factors such as high accuracy over other small, medium and intermediate range missiles, the intercontinental range missiles are being researched and developed by the countries in the region, which will give higher growth as compared to other missiles during the forecast period.

For instance, in December 2018, India test-fired the long-range intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), Agni-V, from the eastern coastal state of Odisha successfully and it has been reported that India is working on development of Agni VI which will be more advanced and powerful. North Korea is testing its missiles on a regular basis and more tests are expected to be conducted by the country during the forecast period as the country is spending heavily in enhancing the military power.

China Remains the Leader in 2019

In the year 2019, China fired more than 100 missiles during the testing and exercise, which is more than any other country in the world, one key type of missile is the DF-26 intermediate-range ballistic missile with a range of 4000 kms and DF-21D medium-range anti-ship ballistic missiles. It establishes the fact that China is enhancing its missile strength at a very rapid pace. In October 2019, during the 70th anniversary parade China showcased inter-ballistic missile Dong Feng-41 (DF-41) which has a range of around 15,000 km and is capable of reaching United States in 30 minutes, it also showcased JL-2, a submarine-launched ballistic missile.

According to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute in 2018, China spent an estimated USD 250 bn on its military. China is also spending heavily in development of latest technology for missile launch vehicles. The development of latest DF-17 is considered to be the major technological accomplishment by Country.
