Submarine Launched Missile Market Introduction

A submarine launched missile (SLM) is a guided missile with the primary objective of delivery of nuclear warheads through a submarine. Most designs allow a single missile to target multiple targets simultaneously. Modern SLMs are closer to intercontinental ballistic missiles which have a range of over 5,500 kilometers. The first deign was developed by the Germans during the Second World War. However, the war came to an end before it could be tested. Since then, there have been tremendous improvements in the submarine launched missile technology which enables them to dodge reconnaissance satellites and launch nuclear warheads with virtual impunity.

Market Size and Forecast

Regional tensions in the Middle East, South Asia and other parts of the world have escalated in the recent times. Many countries are planning to revamp their security apparatus and invest in submarine launched missile technology to gain an upper hand over their neighbors and other hostile nations. Owing to these factors, the submarine launched missile market is expected to attain a significant CAGR during the forecast period 2020-2028. The market is segmented by application into research, national security and others. The national defense segment is anticipated to grow at the highest rate on the back of rising maritime border disputes and national security concerns across the world.CLICK TO DOWNLOAD SAMPLE REPORT
