This research service includes categories of spending such as research,
development, testing, and evaluation (RDT&E), procurement, and services.
SAS/LAM is defined as missiles specifically designed to launch from
naval vessels and defeat adversary surface ships, submarines, fast
attack craft, swarming vessels, unmanned naval vehicles, and/or ground
targets. The study does not include strategic nuclear armed missiles.

Some SAS/LAM weapons can be launched from non-ship platforms, and
deployed against multiple targets (including aircraft and missiles). The
focus is on weapons used against ships or land targets at all ranges.

Launch systems and canisters are not included in this study, though in
some cases, programs or contracts do not make distinctions between
weapons and launchers, so estimates are made. Spending levels for this
research is defined as the funding furnished by government budget
documents, contracts, industry media announcements, and analyst
estimates. Unit prices are not included as they vary widely as a result
of quantities ordered, discounts, political factors, and additional
services that may be included in contracts.

The market is segmented into the following regions: Asia-Pacific (APAC),
Europe, the Middle East (ME), and the United States. General information
and spending estimates for Russia (Europe), and China (APAC), are
included because they are major producers, have large navies, and are
major exporters of SAS/LAM weapons. Mexico, Canada, South America,
African nations, and others are not included due to small volumes,
comparatively low activity levels, and time constraints.

Russia and China have made major upgrades to their SAS/LAMs. This
combined with a return to cold war era level and blue water naval
patrols gives them a very good anti ship capability. In addition, both
nations have exported these upgraded weapons to client states, driving
more nations to upgrade their own SAS/LAM capability through domestic
efforts or purchases from western nations.

Due to the upgraded naval capabilities of Russia and China, the United
States and other western nations and their allies or clients are also
upgrading their missiles to extend range and lethality in order to deter
naval warfare. These upgraded missiles and C4ISR capabilities also
enhance joint operations among mutual defense treaty signatories.
