Military Laser Designator Market (impact of COVID-19) Growth, Overview with Detailed Analysis 2023-2027

A laser designator is primarily used to locate a target. It helps in targeting a laser-guided bombs, precision artillery munitions, and missiles.

Lately, demand for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) is rising across the globe. This is one of the key driving factors in military laser designator market across the globe. Unmanned aerial vehicles are used for several applications in civil, commercial, and military sectors.

Application of laser designator in electronic warfare system helps mitigate the risk associated with live of operators and pilots. Also, it covers wide range when compared to conventional manned aerial vehicles. The factor is anticipated to drive the market in forthcoming years.

Meanwhile, there are various technical and operational concerns associated with laser based systems. Lasers, when disposed to wind, cloud, dirt, and certain weather condition, is unable to cover the desired range. Sometimes, adverse weather conditions may affect the power and range of infrared laser beam.

This factor is likely to restrict the implementation of laser in various applications. This, in turn, may hamper growth of the global military laser designator market in forthcoming years.

On the other hand, the defense authorities are trying to integrate high-end laser (HEL) designator in airborne, ground-based, and shipboard systems. Integration of high-end laser in aforementioned systems will facilitate enhanced accuracy in detecting, warning, targeting, and destructing the targets without any causalities. This factor is likely to enhance the market growth in coming years.

Increasing production and usage of lightweight laser designators

Adoption of new technologies in the digital warfare has resulted in the development of lightweight laser designators, as these systems assist in rapid mobility of troops and help in reducing the fatigue of soldiers. According to a news published by Endeavor Business Media, LLC., army navigation and targeting experts have kicked off a 10-year program to build an electro-optical, all-weather, day-and-night target designation and laser range finder system, in view of better performance of lightweight laser designators. Present-day laser designators fabricated by using legacy designs and manufacturing processes are too heavy, bulky, and costly. This has created need to improve manufacturing processes so as to produce affordable and lightweight laser designator modules for use in small UAV and UGV platforms and portable soldier systems. Major players are adopting new technologies related to laser designators to make these equipment easy to handle.
