Overview of the global multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS) market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS) market to grow moderately at a CAGR of more than 3% between 2016 and 2020. With the constantly changing warfare strategies coupled with the rising security threats especially at the borders, most of the countries across the globe are highly focusing on the procurement of MLRS. MLRS is not only cost-effective compared with other artillery systems but also has features such as high precision and accuracy in striking targets, incurs low collateral damage in urban areas, and requires low maintenance. MLRS has wide implementation by armies of the US, the UK, Greece, Germany, Norway, Denmark, Netherlands, France, Italy, and Turkey. These nations constantly look for innovations and modifications by altering their tactical parameter such as operational range to improve their defense and strike capabilities. The growing need to increase the maximum range of fire, accuracy, and target range with various warheads is driving the demand for modernization in the MLRS market. Governments of countries across the world have initiated several modernization programs to improve these tactical parameters, resulting in positive growth of the market during the forecast period.

One of the latest trends that this market is witnessing is the growing focus towards the development of long-range MLRS.  At present, several prime defense contractors are aiming to manufacture long-range MLRS for effective and improved guidance that enables rockets to strike targets up to a distance of 120 miles. For instance, the Indian Army is developing a new long-range MLRS, which is expected to have newly-designed launcher systems and rockets that will offer an operational range beyond 75 miles. Also, the Royal Artillery of the British Army's newest long-range precision land attack rocket is GPS-guided rockets, integrated with latest advanced computer technology.

  • Wheeled MLRS
  • Tracked MLRS

The wheel-based MLRS segment occupies the largest share in the market and will continue its dominance throughout the forecast period, owing to a rapid shift from tracked to wheeled platforms to develop MLRS. Wheel-based MLRS are gaining traction due to their greater mobility and lighter weight, which improves combat capabilities in the battlefield. Moreover, these wheeled systems need less operational and maintenance costs and have an extended service life. Observing these benefits, several countries are making huge investments in developing and purchasing wheeled MLRS, which will positively contribute to the further growth of this segment in the coming years.
