Supersonic and Hypersonic Missiles Market 2021-2031: Market Segment by Platform (Land-Based Platforms, Naval-Based Platforms, Aerial-Based Platforms), Type (Hypersonic Cruise Missile, Hypersonic Glide Vehicle), Component (Missile Structures, Thermal Protection Systems, Sensor Windows, Launching Requirements, Propulsion System), Speed (Mach 1-2, Mach 2-4, Mach 4-8, Mach 8-10), Range (Short-Range Missiles, Medium-Range Missiles, Long-Range Missiles), by Region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, Middle East & Africa), PLUS COVID-19 Impact Recovery Analysis (V-shaped recovery, W-shaped recovery, U-shaped recovery, L-shaped recovery)

Global Supersonic and hypersonic missiles Market Outlook
The global supersonic and hypersonic missiles market was valued at US$12,258.96 million in 2020. The global market is expected to witness a CAGR of 11.44% from 2021 to 2026 and is expected to reach US$23,294.19 million in 2026 from its previous value of US$13,555.96 million in 2021. Visiongain further anticipates that the region will reach US$42,110.51 million in 2031 while growing at a CAGR of 12.0% from 2021 to 2031.

Increasing Global Conflicts to Drive Market Growth
From the beginning of time, speed has been an important factor in combat, especially at the outset of a ware. Speed will dramatically change the arithmetic of warfare & deterrence with the imminent deployment of hypersonic and supersonic missiles that move at over Mach 5 and higher. U.S., Russia and China are all testing hypersonic weapons of different categories so  as to augment strategic nuclear deterrence & reinforce front-line combat forces. Existing ICBM re-entry vehicles travel at such speeds, but the hypersonic glide vehicles in development are far nimbler, making tracking and intercepting them very difficult. Such dual-use vehicles, which may deliver nuclear or conventional bombs, are also being fitted to missiles destined for regional deployment, such as in the Baltic area or the South China Sea.

Growth in Defense Spending is Attracting R&D Investments
Different variants of these types, as well as supporting technologies, are being developed by major countries in the worldwide supersonic and hypersonic missile industry. The US Air Force is financing a second hypersonic project known as the Air-Launched Rapid Response Weapon in addition to its hypersonic cruise missile programme. The Alternative Re-Entry System, a manoeuvrable hypersonic delivery vehicle that may be launched by one of many proposed missile booster systems, is being developed by the US Army. The United States Navy is developing a booster rocket capable of transporting hypersonic vehicles from surface ships. The Defense Department proposed $2.6 billion for these and related programmes in its fiscal year 2020 budget proposal. Although all three major nations have looked into hypersonic applications, their strategic calculations seem to vary, with the US concentrating on weapons for non-nuclear regional wars and Russia prioritising the deployment of hypersonic weapons for both conventional and nuclear applications. Whatever the case may be, hypersonic weaponry's increasing pursuit is mainly due to its immense manoeuvrability and perceived invulnerability to current defensive systems, as well as its substantial manoeuvrability and perceived invulnerability to existing defensive systems.

COVID-19 Impact on Supersonic & Hypersonic Missiles Market
Following the conclusion of COVID-19, missile-based defense manufacturing will become nimbler. Due to the lockdown, the supply chain interruption is anticipated to have an impact on the businesses' future development. Due of the continuing epidemic, businesses are not generating income, resulting in significant losses throughout the year. To resurrect the market, companies must trade on a large margin basis. Due to the lockdown, the income generation of supersonic and hypersonic missile industries has suffered a significant financial loss.

Technical Challenges in Manufacturing of Hypersonic and Supersonic Missiles
A hypersonic, scramjet-powered air-to-surface missile may provide significant increases in warfighting capabilities. However, as the maximum Mach number rises (e.g., from Mach 6 to Mach 8), the technical difficulties increase, and developing a vehicle with a maximum speed of Mach 8 would need major technological advances. To manage hazards, the Air Force will require a well-thought-out technological validation programme that includes a prototype flying vehicle.

Lockheed Martin Corporation Leading the Global Market
According to Visiongain's analysis, the competition seems to be between Lockheed Martin Corporation and Raytheon Technologies. Lockheed Martin Corporation accounted for over 35% market share in the global supersonic & hypersonic missiles market in the year 2020. The Army, Navy, NASA, Air Force, & Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) have all awarded Lockheed Martin Corporation hypersonic contracts over the past seven years. Gliders as well as hypersonic cruise missiles are among the platforms. Both offensive and counter-hypersonic programmes are currently under development by Raytheon. Several major concurrent R&D projects underlie the Pentagon's attempts to claim worldwide hypersonic parity. Because of the high expense and complexity of hypersonic technology research, DoD departments cooperate to communicate their findings with a broader audience while also sharing costs. The variety of hypersonic research projects shows that the Department of Defense is worried not just about the quality of its platforms in comparison to near-peer armies, but also about the capacity to retain redundant hypersonic attack choices. On the plus side, the global the global supersonic and hypersonic missiles market is unlikely to devolve into a "winner-take-all" scenario. The hypersonic industry is likewise being pursued by the majority of other military companies.
