ALBANY, New York, Oct 05, 2016: The report offers key insights into the global small arms market. According to the research report, the market is expected to rise at a CAGR of 2.49% from 2016 to 2020.

The rising demand from civilian applications such as self-defense and sports is anticipated to fuel the growth of the global small arms market. Additionally, several governments worldwide are legally providing small arms for civilian defense. As per the findings of the report, about 60% of the global small arms are possessed by private security personnel, private citizens, gangs, and non-state armed forces. Moreover, the introduction of technologically advanced guns such as smart guns is likely to boost the growth prospects of this market. Furthermore, the increasing application of 3D printing in gun manufacturing is fuelling the growth of the market. Another factor driving the market is the growing procurement of small arms by law enforcement agencies and military forces across the globe owing to increasing cases of terrorism and armed violence.

On the other hand, the strict licensing procedures related to the allotment of small arms are restraining the global small arms market. Other factors hampering the growth of the market are declining defense budgets of developed economies and increasing illicit trade and trafficking of arms. However, the rising trend of foreign direct investment (FDI) in defense in emerging markets is estimated to shape the future of the market.
