DUBLIN, October 18, 2021–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The "Hypersonic Missiles Global Market Report 2021: COVID-19 Growth and Change" report has been added to's offering.
Major players in the hypersonic missiles market are Lockheed Martin, Raytheon Technologies, Northrop Grumman, Boeing, Saab AB, Systima Technologies, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd., Tactical Missiles Corporation, China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation, Thales Group, and Denel Dynamics.
The global hypersonic missile market is expected to grow from $94.21 million in 2020 to $98.96 million in 2021 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5%. The market is expected to reach $123.18 million in 2025 at a CAGR of 5.6%.
The hypersonic missiles market consists of sales of hypersonic missiles by entities (organizations, partnerships) that manufacture hypersonic missiles powered by high-speed, air-breathing engines, or scramjets. The hypersonic missiles travel five times faster than sound, which is roughly 1 mile per second and can reach speeds of up to 7672 miles per hour or more. Hypersonic weapons reduce the time it takes to pursue a target, the time warnings are available to an enemy, and the time defense systems have to deal with an imminent threat.
The main types of products in hypersonic missiles are hypersonic glide vehicles and hypersonic cruise missiles. The hypersonic glide vehicles are a type of hypersonic missile that utilizes a re-entry vehicle to breach the speed of sound which is enough to overcome existing missile defense systems. It is used in wire guidance, command guidance, terrain contour matching, terrestrial guidance, inertial guidance, beam rider guidance, laser guidance, and radiofrequency, and GPS reference and is implemented in various verticals such as military and civil.
North America was the largest region in the hypersonic missiles market in 2020. The regions covered in this report are Asia-Pacific, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, North America, South America, Middle East, and Africa.
The development of new hypersonic cruise missiles is a key trend gaining popularity in the hypersonic missiles market. Major companies operating in the hypersonic missiles sector are focused on developing hypersonic missiles to strengthen their position.
For example, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, and Raytheon announced plans in August 2020 to develop a new solid-rocket air-breathing hypersonic standard cruise missile for launch from current fighter-bomber aircraft. According to Air Force authorities, these businesses are the only reliable sources of hypersonic cruise missiles. Hypersonic weapons move at speeds ranging from Mach 5 to Mach 10 – or 3,840 to 7,680 miles per hour.
In December 2020, Lockheed Martin, a US-based aerospace company acquired Aerojet Rocketdyne for a deal amount of $4.4 billion. The acquisition is expected to enhance Lockheed Martin's allied security missions, space, and hypersonic technology. Aerojet Rocketdyne is a US-based rocket and missile, propulsion manufacturer.
The increase in initiatives and funding from the governments and defense forces is contributing to the growth of the hypersonic missiles market. Governments and defense sectors started funding the research on the hypersonic area to strengthen the forces.
For instance, the Pentagon, the headquarters building of the United States Department of Defense, requested a $3.8 billion budget for hypersonic research for the fiscal year 2022. Furthermore, according to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute report in 2021, global military spending increased to $2 trillion in 2020, a 2.6% increase over 2019. Therefore, the increase in initiatives and funding from governments and defense forces is expected to drive the growth of the hypersonic missiles market over the coming years.
The countries covered in the hypersonic missiles market report are Australia, Brazil, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Japan, Russia, South Korea, UK, USA.

China reportedly tested a hypersonic weapon in August, sparking concerns about Beijing's advanced weapon arsenal as the U.S. races to build its own hypersonic weapons.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) -Colin Powell, the first Black U.S. secretary of state, top military officer and national security adviser, died on Monday at the age of 84 due to complications from COVID-19. Powell had multiple myeloma, a blood cancer, said a source who asked not to be named. "We have lost a remarkable and loving husband, father, grandfather and a great American," his family said, thanking the staff of the military hospital near Washington who treated Powell, but providing few details about his illness.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) -Colin Powell became the first Black U.S. secretary of state and top military officer during decades as one of America's most prominent leaders, but his reputation was tainted in 2003 when he touted spurious intelligence at the United Nations to make the case for war with Iraq despite deep misgivings. Powell, who died on Monday at age 84 from complications of COVID-19 despite being fully vaccinated, was the son of Jamaican immigrants who rose to hold senior military and civilian posts and helped guide American actions during two Iraq wars. Powell was one of America's foremost Black figures for decades.
Ethiopian military airstrikes have hit the capital of the country’s Tigray region and killed at least three people, witnesses said Monday, returning the war abruptly to Mekele after several months of peace. The airstrikes, confirmed by two humanitarian workers, came days after a new military offensive was launched against the Tigray forces who have been fighting Ethiopian and allied forces for nearly a year. Mekele hasn't seen fighting since late June, when the Tigray forces retook much of the region and Ethiopian troops withdrew.
China said Monday its launch of a new spacecraft was merely a test to see whether the vehicle could be re-used. Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian said the launch involved a spacecraft rather than a missile and was of “great significance for reducing the use-cost of spacecraft and could provide a convenient and affordable way to make a round trip for mankind’s peaceful use of space.” China’s space program is run by its military and is closely tied to its agenda of building hypersonic missiles and other technologies that could alter the balance of power with the United States.

HORLIVKA, Ukraine/KYIV (Reuters) -Russian-backed separatists on Monday ended their blockade of a hotel housing international conflict monitors in eastern Ukraine, an incident sparked by the capture of an officer by Ukrainian armed forces last week. The Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) said on Sunday its monitors were unable to leave their patrol base in a hotel in the separatist-controlled town of Horlivka while the separatists demanded the officer's release. The OSCE, Europe's main security watchdog, said the base's vehicle entrance had been locked with a chain and padlock and that they had seen tents pitched outside the hotel.

China surprised U.S. officials by testing a new hypersonic missile in August that went around the globe before it made its way toward the intended target, according to a report.
Mario Tama/GettyIt was Nov. 8, 1995, and Colin Powell had just concluded a 25-city tour to promote his memoir, My American Journey. Huge crowds greeted him wherever he went, his poll numbers soared, and so did expectations for his candidacy.All of Washington and much of the country tuned in to watch the retired four-star announce if he would be a candidate for president. The son of Jamaican immigrants, he might have become the first Black president in U.S. history. But Powell stepped to the micr
Washington is concerned about hypersonic missile technology and its potential military applications by China and Russia, a U.S. arms control official said on Monday, after a media report that Beijing had tested a nuclear-capable hypersonic glide weapon. Hypersonic weapons are usually defined as missiles that fly more than five times the speed of sound, and a race is under way for the next generation of long-range weapons that are harder to detect and intercept. The Financial Times, quoting five people familiar with the matter, said at the weekend that China had tested a weapon in August that flew through space and circled the globe before cruising down towards a target which it missed.
Russia announced Monday it will suspend the activities of its mission to NATO and strip NATO staff working in Moscow of their accreditation, in response to the Western alliance's expulsion of eight "undeclared Russian intelligence officers" earlier this month.Why it matters: The latest escalation means there will no longer be any high-level military-to-military communication between the two sides.Stay on top of the latest market trends and economic insights with Axios Markets.

General Colin Powell, who has died aged 84 of complications from Covid-19, rose from modest origins to be America’s top soldier, top diplomat, and, before the election of Barack Obama to the White House, the most successful black man in American political history; for many, however, his reputation was fatally tarnished by the speech he gave to the UN in early 2003 accusing the Iraqi regime of Saddam Hussein of “concealing their efforts to produce more weapons of mass destruction” – a claim that
