In recent years, the light weapons market has gained a lot of attention from homeland security agencies and defense forces, due to the increasing threats posed on human security. For instance, a LSAT (Lightweight Small Arms Technologies) Machine Gun of 5.56mm caliber is capable of killing many individuals at a single stretch. A Man-Portable Air-Defense System commonly known as MANPADS has the potential of destroying an aircraft with a single shot of projectile. The increased lethality along with technological advancement in the precision range and explosive power of light weapons has been the key stimulator for the gradual increasing demand of light weapons.

The global light weapons market research report includes the market study of heavy machine guns, light cannons, MANPADS, recoilless rifles, MANPATS, launchers, infantry mortars, grenades, anti-aircraft missile, anti-tank weapons, and landmines. These categories of weapon have been segmented on the basis of technology as guided and unguided.

This report provides the market analysis of the global light weapons market over the next six years. It discusses the industry, market, and technology trends that are currently prevailing in the light weapons market. This market is also categorizes the weapons on the basis of applications namely, defense and homeland security. The market share for defense has further been segmented as airborne, land-based, and naval.

The global light weapons market will exhibit a gradual growth over the next six years. The global light weapons market is estimated to be $9.62 billion in 2014 and is expected to register a CAGR of 4.48% to reach $12.51 billion by 2020. The global heavy machine guns market is estimated to be $1.07 million in 2014 and is expected to register a CAGR of 5.90% to reach $1.52 billion in 2020.

The light weapons market is driven by the increasing need for high precision, lightweight, and compact weapon systems. With the evolution of technology, better guided weapons with a high target hit ratio are being designed. A considerable amount of resources are being invested in developing highly sophisticated weapon accessories like weapon sights, night vision devices, aiming lasers, laser rangefinders, and fire control systems.

The Asia-Pacific, Latin American, and African regions will prove to be emerging markets for the light weapons industry. Countries such as China, Argentina, Mexico, and Saudi Arabia, will show reliable levels of growth. The global light weapons market in Latin America is estimated to be $431.04 million in 2014 and is expected to register a CAGR of 5.32% till 2020. The global unguided weapons market is estimated to register a CAGR of 4.05% from 2014 to 2020.
