Aerospace and Defence Weapons Carriage & Release System Market

The Weapons Carriage & Release System Market is estimated to grow at a CAGR 2.59% rate from 2021 to 2026. The increasing induction of new airborne platforms, rising demand for pneumatic release systems, and growing use of different ranges and types of missiles have led to the growth in demand for weapons carriage & release systems.Missiles are anticipated to witness the highest demand during the forecast period. There is increasing use of different ranges and types of missiles, due to which the demand for missile-related carriage & release systems is expected to increase. There has also been an increase in the adoption of air-to-air and air-to-ground missiles with extended ranges in fighter aircraft. Additionally, the fifth-generation aircraft has been using a new range of adapters for the carriage of missiles.


The OEM segment is expected to capture a larger market share due to the increasing inventory of newly inducted airborne platforms. These airborne platforms have increasing applications in anti-submarine warfare, air-to-ground support, and air defense roles. Moreover, the development of a new range of missiles, such as beyond visual range missiles and anti-radiation missiles, for newly inducted platforms has also contributed to the demand for OEMs.


Europe is expected to grow significantly due to a rise in the deployment of fighter aircraft, such as Eurofighter Typhoon, Dassault Rafale, Saab Gripen, and F-35, in various European countries, including the UK, Italy, Turkey, and Finland. The induction of UAVs loaded with missiles and bombs for combat roles has also led to an increase in demand for weapons carriage & release systems in Europe.


Key Market Players includes Harris Corporation (US), Ultra Electronics (US), Marvin Group (US), Marotta Controls (US), Moog Inc. (US), RUAG Group (Switzerland), Systima Technologies, Inc. (US), Raytheon Company (US), Cobham plc (UK), ALKAN (France), and RAFAUT Group (France).
