Global Cluster Munitions Market 2016-2020

Global Cluster Munitions Market 2016-2020

About Cluster Munitions

A cluster munition is an air-dropped or ground-launched explosive weapon that ejects smaller submunitions. Cluster bombs release explosive projectiles, which are designed to destroy vehicles, disperse chemical or biological weapons, scatter landmines, and kill personnel. These cluster bombs release many small munitions over a wide area, posing risks to civilians both during attacks and after attacks. Unexploded bomblets can kill civilians and unintended targets long after the conflict has ended as they remain difficult to locate and remove.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global cluster munitions market to grow at a CAGR of 2.08% during the period 2016-2020.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Cluster Munitions Market 2016-2020



Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global cluster munitions market: Textron Systems, IMI Systems, L-3 Fuzing and Ordnance Systems, Lockheed Martin, NORINCO, and Orbital ATK.



Other prominent vendors in the market are: Aeroteh and China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation.



Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One of the latest trends gaining traction in the market is the growing prominence of Alternative Warhead Program (AWP). Recently, Orbital ATK has signed a contract with the US Army for the development and provision of Guided Multiple Launch Rocket System (GMLRS) Alternative Warhead to replace the regulated cluster bombs. These alternative warheads are an advanced version of cluster munitions which aims at the complete elimination of unexploded ordnances. These advanced guided weapons have no long-term threat as cluster munitions and do not restrict the movement of soldiers.”



According to the report, the cost-effectiveness and easy deployment of cluster munitions over ICBMs and submarine-launched ballistic missiles (SLBMs) are the prime reasons why many countries still opt for the development of cluster munitions. Moreover, specific launching systems are required for launching ICBMs or the SLBMs; cluster munitions, on the contrary, can be launched from a fighter aircraft. In addition, the effect would be over a larger area than other bombs.

Further, the report states that a cluster munition threats are not limited to soldiers or battlefields but also affect civilians, residential places, and medical institutions. These bombs pose an immediate threat to the lives of civilians during conflicts by randomly scattering submunitions over a wide area. They continue to pose threats after conflicts, as the remnants or submunitions that do not detonate upon impact can become a greater hazard in the future. As of 2016, more than 98% of the cluster bomb victims are civilians, of which over 40% were children.
