The US is one of the major markets for directed energy weapons across the globe due to the increase in demand for high-energy laser systems by the US government. The terrorist attack on the World Trade Center in 2001 highlighted the vulnerability of the current defense system in US. This event brought the security of airports and marine ports to the fore. A rise in demand for chemical lasers and solid-state lasers is expected to boost the demand for high-energy laser systems during the forecast period.
