Electromagnetic weapons use electromagnetic energy to transmit heat, mechanical, or electrical energy to the target, causing pain or lasting damage. With high levels of electromagnetic pulses, these weapons are capable of disrupting the operation of electronic equipment and causing physical harm to items. By producing damaging voltage within electrical wires, these weapons cause harm to electronic systems. Electromagnetic weapons employ focused electrical and magnetic energy to disrupt crucial enemy electronics used for communication, navigation and guiding, computing, and displays. Armed forces around the world are developing electromagnetic railguns that will be used against humans, electrical equipment, and military targets.

The COVID-19 crisis has created market uncertainty, leading to massive supply of supply chain, declining business confidence, and increased panic among customer segments. The governments of various regions have announced the complete closure and temporary closure of factories, thus having a negative impact on total production and sales. Countries around the world have set strict limits on the days to months for closing spaces. As a result of the epidemic, many businesses have been suspended and waiting for market conditions to improve. The impact of the COVID-19 epidemic has led to delays in the development of magnetic weapons and a decrease in trials and protests, restrictions on the performance of key players, and a shortage of components. The epidemic caused supply chain disruption resulting in delays in the development of electromagnetic railguns.

Lack of components, sub-systems, and electronic systems, due to regulations related to the import and export of goods also caused production delays. The development of nuclear weapons has also had an impact due to a lack of material resources, due to production closures in China, South Korea and Taiwan.

By Technology

According to projections, the particle beam weapons segment will be the largest in 2022. During the forecast period, this segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of 20.7 percent. This growth can be attributed to particle beam weapons' ease of installation and low power consumption. In comparison to conventional ordnance, they have almost no time of flight, allowing for a longer decision time and a faster reaction time.

By Application

The given segment is divided into Homeland security and military security

By Platform

Naval electromagnetic weapons systems include weapons used in naval applications such as combat ships and submarines, among others. Combat ships, submarines, and unmanned surface vehicles comprise the naval component. Defense ships are specifically constructed for usage by coast guards and navy forces to secure water border security.

By Product

Rail guns, electromagnetic bombs, plasma cannons, microwave guns, navy laser cannons, gun-launched guided projectiles, automatic shotguns, and other lethal products are among them. Massive investments are being made in research and development, as well as the demonstration and testing of lethal electromagnetic weapons.

15. Conclusion

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of a good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to complete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports, we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and most accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brainstorming sessions to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through readily available information. In this process, we use various paid and unpaid databases to which our team has access and gather data through the same. This includes examining listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling, etc. Apart from this, our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various universities as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content-specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first-hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply sides of the industry to make sure we land an accurate judgment and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses, and observation of on-field participants. The below-mentioned chart should give a better understanding of part 1 of the primary interview.

Part 2: In this part of the primary research the data collected via secondary research and part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews with individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence center, our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real-time.

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but is not limited to getting rid of the many typos, duplication of numbers, or missing any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads, and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploaded on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
