Cumulative Impact of COVID-19:
The outbreak of COVID-19 in early 2020 caused major disruptions in global markets, including the remote weapon station market. The pandemic created supply chain issues that led to delays in production and delivery times for RWSs. Furthermore, it also led to a decrease in orders due to reduced demand from defense contractors and decreases in military spending from governments worldwide.
Cumulative Impact of Russia-Ukraine Conflict:
The recent conflict between Russia and Ukraine has also had a significant impact on the RWS market. The conflict has resulted in international sanctions imposed on both countries, making it difficult for defense contractors to obtain components needed to produce RWSs. In addition, there have been delays in deliveries due to increased security measures at borders which have further harmed production and delivery times for RWSs.
Cumulative Impact of High Inflation:
High inflation rates worldwide have also affected the remote weapon station market. With currencies losing their value due to inflationary pressures, defense contractors are finding it increasingly difficult to purchase components required for producing RWSs at affordable prices, which is making it more expensive for them to produce these systems which are resulting in lower profits or even losses depending on their order size and margins.
