Rockets and missiles are both types of projectiles that are propelled through the air or outer space using engines. The main difference between the two is their purpose and design. Rockets are typically used for space exploration, military applications, and scientific research. They are designed to be launched vertically and can reach very high altitudes and speeds. Missiles, on the other hand, are designed to be guided toward a specific target, such as a plane or a building. They are typically smaller and more agile than rockets and can be launched from various platforms, including aircraft, ships, and land-based launchers. Both rockets and missiles use similar propulsion systems, such as solid or liquid fuels, to generate the necessary thrust for their flight. However, missiles also have guidance systems and other advanced technologies that allow them to be more accurate and effective in their intended purpose.

Many government and private defense manufacturers are exploring the potential of additive manufacturing techniques in the designing and engineering of rockets and missiles for space exploration and military purposes. This rising interest is owing to the ability of 3D printers to produce virtually any kind of three-dimensional metallic and plastic objects. For example, US-based Lockheed Martin announced its plans in 2017 to develop the country’s next generation of intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) using 3D printing. In the space domain, NASA and Space X are aggressively experimenting with 3D printing to produce rocket engines for spacecraft. Thus, the widening application of additive manufacturing techniques in the aerospace and defense industry will augur well for this market in the near future.

According to the report, the market value was at USD 52.54 billion in 2019. Its other highlights include:

  • In-depth analysis of the key factors driving and restraining the market growth;

  • Identification of upcoming market opportunities; and
  • Detailed evaluation of the impact of the changes in the regional and competitive dynamics on the market.

Market Restraint

Supply Chain Disruptions Caused by the COVID-19 Outbreak to Stall Market Growth

The rocket and missile market growth is likely to get hampered throughout 2020 by the outbreak of the COVID-19 contagion. The pandemic has led to unforeseen shocks to supply chains worldwide, crippling defense manufacturing activities around the globe. For instance, the Italian shipbuilding company, Fincantieri, was forced to halt its operations in March 2020 as the coronavirus spread like wildfire around the world. Accentuating these disruptions is the suspension of business development activities in the defense sector. For example, planned expos such as the EUROSATORY 2020, where procurement contracts are finalized, now face an uncertain future, further affecting this industry. Moreover, major players in rockets and missiles domain are also witnessing a sharp fall in their stock prices. For instance, between February and March, stock value of the Thales Group fell by 33%, while Leonardo’s declined by 55%. The cascading effect of the coronavirus pandemic is, therefore, expected to negative on this growth in the immediate future.
