The report analysis the global light weapons market which covers the global man-portable air-defence system (MANPAD), anti-tank guided weapons, and the unguided weapons markets for the 5 five years.

The global light weapons market can be broadly classified into two categories based on technology: guided and unguided. ATGW and MANPAD are based on guided technologies. In this segment, the market size of ATGW is growing at a very fast pace. The products which come under unguided technology are heavy machine guns, recoilless rifles, and the mortar/grenade launchers. The mortar/grenade launchers market covers a major share of the global unguided light weapons market segment.

The geography-wise analysis includes a product-level and platform-level breakdown across 7 geographic regions constituting North America, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, Asia-Pacific (APAC), Africa, and the Rest of the World (ROW).

In this report, the drivers and restraints for the market are analyzed, including their impact on the market throughout the study period. The technology trends for the light weapons market are also discussed.
