Over the past few weeks, I've gone out of my way to detail a relatively small market that's poised for incredible growth.
It's not one many investment analysts ever mention, either. It's flying under the radar, so to speak.
It's a market that's already grown 138% over the past three years, but a fresh research report from BIS Research suggests its size will grow another 123% in the years ahead with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 18.15%.
This is the market for directed-energy weapons, or laser weapons.
It's a market that's already grown from $922 million in 2017 to $1.3 billion in 2018, $1.8 billion in 2019, and is projected to reach $2.2 billion in 2020.
But it's not going to stop there.
The BIS Research report projects the market will grow almost 20% a year, and ultimately double again to $4.02 billion by 2030.
“The demand for Directed Energy Weapon Systems is primarily due to the need for enhanced border security arising due to increasing land disputes, migration, and smuggling, has compelled several countries to further strengthen their security,” the report says. “Additionally, the directed energy weapons are developed with the aim of countering the growing threats from unmanned aerial vehicles, mortars, missiles, and small boats at a low engagement cost. Major advantages of directed energy weapons are their high speed, precision, flexibility and low operation cost.”

UPSET ALERT: Tiny firm set to win race to deploy 5G
We’ve all heard about investing in 5G.
But while everyone is talking about the fancy new 5G chips or antennas…
Nobody’s talking about the most significant piece of the 5G puzzle…
The web of networking cables crisscrossing the country that will bring information from all over the world right to your fingertips.
This is the backbone of America’s 5G network.
It simply can’t be built without those fiber-optic connections.
And there’s one company that literally owns this entire fiber network.
All of the wireless carriers and pretty much every big name in communication already have contracts in place with this company.
In fact, the ONLY cities in the entire country with 5G coverage are located right on this company’s fiber network.
Even the U.S. government is paying to get its secured communications on this critical piece of infrastructure.
Quite simply: This company owns more fiber networks than anyone else in America.
And best of all, this company’s stock is trading around $10 a share.
But according to my research, you could be sitting on more than 600% profits after all’s said and done.
This company is leading the charge to 5G and could make early investors filthy rich.
