Automatic Weapons Market

Automatic Weapons Market by Product (Automatic Rifle, Machine Gun, Automatic launchers, Automatic Cannon, Gatling Gun), End Use (Land, Airborne, Naval, Handheld & Stationary), Caliber (Small, Medium, Large), Type, and Region - Global Forecast to 2023

Report Code: AS 6857 Jan, 2019, by marketsandmarkets.com

[186 Pages Report] The automatic weapons market is projected to grow from USD 6.0 billion in 2018 to USD 8.7 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 7.82% during the forecast period. Factors such as the rising demand for precision weapon systems in emerging countries, advancement in land warfare systems, continuous upgradation of existing combat platforms, and interconnected warfare are expected to drive the automatic weapons market during the forecast period.

Automatic Weapons Market

By end use, land segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

On the basis of end use, the automatic weapons market has been segmented into land, naval, airborne, and handheld & stationary. The land segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The rising demand for automatic weapons can be attributed to several factors, including increasing focus on close combat systems, upgradation of existing armored platforms, need for connected warfare systems, and safety of soldiers in war-like situations, among others.

The use of automatic weapons in defense has increased considerably in the past few years, mainly driven by the rise in the number of warfare platforms being manufactured worldwide. These warfare platforms require weapon systems that can be operated as semi-automatic as well as fully automatic.

The automatic rifle segment accounts for largest market and is estimated to continue to lead during forecast period.

Based on product, the automatic weapons market is led by the automatic rifle segment. Automatic rifles fire continuously till their last round, whereas self-loading or semi-automatic rifles require pressing the trigger after every shot. Self-loading rifles are preferred over automatic rifles as they offer higher accuracy. The automatic rifles segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the global automatic weapons market in 2018, given its large production and demand in Europe and the US.

Automatic Weapons Market

North America is expected to account for the largest market size during the forecast period.

North America is estimated to account for the largest market share and Asia Pacific is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. One of the key factors driving the North America automatic weapons market is the continuous upgrade of warfare platforms with newer technologies. The US is the major country increasingly investing in automatic weapons and related technologies.
