Top 8 Vendors in the Multiple Launch Rocket Systems Market from 2016 to 2020: Technavio

LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top eight leading vendors in their recent global multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS) market report. The market size has been calculated from revenue generated from, production of, and average price of MLRS.

The increasing security threats among nations and across borders have heightened the need to bolster defense forces with advanced systems such as MLRS. Thus, small-economy countries such as Belarus and Kazakhstan and developing countries such as India, China, and Brazil are constantly investing in the procurement of MLRS to strengthen their strike capabilities.

Competitive vendor landscape

In-house manufacturing capabilities, product offerings, global footprint network, R&D investments, newer technologies, and strong client base have become the key areas to have an edge over competitors. Factors like global economic recovery, growth in the defense sector, and increasing R&D investments have opened room for opportunities for defense vendors to compete and grow.

The global MLRS market is highly competitive, and vendors compete based on cost, product quality, reliability, and aftermarket service. It is important for the vendors to provide cost-effective and high-quality interceptors, integrated with the latest technologies to sustain themselves in an intensely competitive market environment,” says Moutushi Saha, a lead defense analyst from Technavio.

Growth of market vendors depends on numerous factors like government support, market conditions, and industry development. Thus, vendors should not only improve their product portfolios but also expand their geographic customer bases. The major vendors compete in terms of availability, price, quality, and technology. Their focus is primarily on the implementation of lightweight materials, electric technologies, and robust systems.
