Forecast for fiber laser weapon system market

According to specialists, the fiber laser weapon system market is going to grow by 19.3% from 2021 to 2028. It became possible thanks to the technological improvements in fiber laser weapon systems as well as advancements in fiber laser technology. All these factors have resulted in high-energy fiber laser weapons with a longer range.

The laser weapon companies made a great contribution to fiber laser technology by developing new fiber laser systems and demonstrating their advanced versions with better performance. For example, specialists developed a fiber laser system for US Navy by bringing three parts together: laser weapon, long-range ISR, and counter-UAS capabilities that make better the situational awareness and layered defense. As a result, constantly developing fiber laser designs provide a wide range of options to customers and increase the fiber laser market volume. 

COVID-19 influenced all the economic sectors greatly, and the fiber laser weapon systems sector was not the exception. The countries of North America, particularly the USA, were the most affected. According to experts esteem, the defense equipment manufacturing industry had from 4 to 12 weeks of lag in the military supply chain. These problems with the time of the supply chain damaged the whole defense equipment manufacturing in 2020. However, the recovery period of the defense industry is expected to be quicker than for other military industries. Despite the fact that many military and defense modernization projects were delayed.

Fiber lasers are consist of three-layer optical fiber where the gun pumps the light from diode lasers into the optical fiber. The laser light travels along the fiber length with many reflecting mirrors. Thanks to the small size of the fiber laser systems, they suit different types of military equipment like ships, ground vehicles, and helicopters. Moreover, fiber lasers have extreme power.

They are also easily customizable and offer cleaner solutions. All these advantages would increase fiber laser demand in the future and help the growth of the fiber laser weapon systems market. 

All in all, despite the breached supply chain of the fiber laser weapon systems and bad economic conditions, the export revenue has been reduced. Moreover, the disruption of the defense electronics supply chain has also resulted in the laser weapon systems market damage. However, the advancement of trade relations would regain the fiber laser market position.
