The precision-guided munition market consists of the sales of precision-guided munition by entities (organizations, partnerships, and sole proprietors) that are used to destroy a point target and minimize collateral damage.The precision-guided munition is a guided weapon that detects electromagnetic energy reflected from a target.

These are guided using a global positioning system (GPS), a laser guidance beam, or an integrated inertial navigation system.

The main types of products in the precision-guided munition are tactical missiles, guided rockets, guided ammunition, torpedoes, and loitering munitions.Tactical missiles are shorter-ranged weapons designed for use in close combat areas.

These operate at various speeds such as subsonic, supersonic, and hypersonic.The different modes of operation include semi-autonomous, and autonomous and involve several technologies such as infrared, semi-active laser, inertial navigation system (INS), a global positioning system (GPS), radar homing, and anti-radiation.

It is also segmented by launch platform into land, airborne, and naval.

Asia Pacific was the largest region in the precision-guided munition market in 2021. The regions covered in the precision-guided munition market report are Asia-Pacific, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, North America, South America, Middle East, and Africa.

Increasing military expenditure is significantly driving the growth of the precision-guided munition market.The military refers to the armed forces of any country that helps maintain peace and stability in the country.

The military expenditure is more focused on military modernization programs and the increase in the need for precision-guided munition to minimize collateral damage and increase lethality against the target, thereby promoting the adoption of precision-guided munition. For instance, according to Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), in 2020, the global military expenditure rose to $2 trillion, an increase of 2.6% from 2019.
