What is Hypersonic Technology? How big is the Hypersonic Technology Market?

Market Overview:

Hypersonic refers to speeds of Mach 5 or higher. Hypersonic travel is, clearly, supersonic travel on steroids. But, unlike “supersonic,” which has a specific explanation of being faster than the speed of sound, “hypersonic” is a little more ambiguous. In general, hypersonic speeds are the point where the particles of air surrounding the aircraft begin to change by dissociating (breaking apart) and/or collecting the electrical charge. Because these things don’t happen at a fixed speed, the term “hypersonic” refers to the point at which they begin to have an effect on the dynamics of flight, which is commonly acknowledged to be Mach 5 or 3,836.35 mph in circumstances of 20°C at sea level.

However, hypersonic research is not solely concerned with speed. It is also the technology’s ability for accuracy, maneuverability, and ability to avoid detection that makes it so desirable.

Global Hypersonic Technology Market Dynamics:

Growth Drivers

  • Growing global R&D investments are expected to drive market growth

The precision of hypersonic weapons is projected to be a primary driver of hypersonic technology market growth. Furthermore, countries including the United States, India, China, and Russia are investing heavily in hypersonic weapons R&D to improve their respective military capabilities, which are projected to propel the global hypersonic technology market forward. During the projected period, the global market is expected to develop due to an increase in conflicts across the globe to acquire dominance in commercial or defense sectors. Hypersonic technology’s advantages in war-like scenarios can be extremely useful in making quick military judgments. Hypersonic vehicles travel at speeds greater than 5 times the speed of sound, allowing for a new class of long-range military reactions. During the forecast period, these factors are projected to offer new opportunities for the hypersonic technology market.


  • Thermal protection, communication, and maneuverability continue to be significant challenges in designing, building, and fielding a reliable hypersonic weapon

However, the challenges of testing hypersonic airflows to approximate hypersonic flight velocity constitute a roadblock to hypersonic technology development. Even simulation technologies are insufficient for estimating vehicle performance at high speeds. The lack of advanced technologies that are incredibly powerful, ultra-light, and nonflammable, have a positive temperature coefficient, and can be sustained at hypersonic speeds is another important hindrance to the hypersonic technology market’s growth.

COVID-19 Impact on Hypersonic Technology Market:

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a negative impact on global business. It also had an impact on the development of difficult and expensive technologies such as hypersonic technologies. The development and testing processes were halted due to the government-imposed lockdown. As a result, it had an impact on the overall deployment.

Detrimental disruption and the economic downturn have put a halt to the adoption of technologies such as hypersonic and aircraft missiles. In 2020, the COVID-19 outbreak halted raw material imports and exports. As a result, the scarcity of raw materials hampered the production of ground defense equipment.

Regional Dominance:

Which country has hypersonic technology and Drives the market growth?

During the forecast period, the Asia Pacific market is expected to grow at a faster CAGR, resulting in increased investments to advance military capabilities. Regional conflicts in the region have tended to result in investments in hypersonic missile advancement by countries such as India, China, and Japan, which is driving the market growth.

Recent Developments

  • September 2021: The United States tested a hypersonic air-breathing weapon concept (HAWC). Raytheon Technologies built the missile, which was launched from an aircraft equipped with a scramjet engine developed by Northrop Grumman Corporation. The HAWC vehicle performs best in an oxygen-rich environment, and its speed and maneuverability make it difficult for air defense systems to detect. It can strike targets much faster than subsonic missiles and cause major damage even without the use of high explosives.
  • August 2021: The US Air Force (USAF) and venture capital firms contributed USD 60 million to the development of the world’s first reusable hypersonic passenger plane, which can travel five times faster than the speed of sound and significantly reduce travel time. The company has been asked to build three prototypes of the aircraft that will be tested, as well as reusable hypersonic propulsion systems.
