Global Active Protection Systems Market: Snapshot
Active protection systems are capable of shooting down and interrupting threats such as anti-tank missiles and rocket-propelled grenades. Moreover, they do it with a great degree of accuracy which minimizes collateral damage. Active protection system can also provide protection from these threats in various mission applications, such as fixed sites, ships, and combat vehicles, among others. Because of so many unique perceived benefits, active protection systems are seeing their demand rise.
Majorly fuelling the global active protection systems market is the strong demand for land based defense system and for ballistic missile defense system. Collective efforts by the governments of the U.S. and South Korea to build land based air and missile defense in South Korea is a macro-economic factor bolstering the active protection systems market. Likewise, India and China’s effort to bolster missile defense system is further slated to catalyze growth in the active protection system market.
According to a report by Transparency Market Research, the global active protection systems market will likely reach a value of US$5.253 bn by 2025 from US$2.847 bn in 2016 by rising at a CAGR of 7.1% from 2017 to 2025.
