5.56mm: The fastest-growing segment of the small arms market, by the caliber “

Based on caliber, the 5.56mm caliber segment of the small arms market is projected to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growth of the 5.56mm caliber segment can be attributed to increasing adoption of small arms chambered for 5.56mm. Changing focus from shoot to kill to shoot to injure by armed forces has resulted in the greater demand for this caliber. This cartridge has various military and civil designations and is the most preferred caliber for rifle ammunition globally. 5.56mm caliber ammunitions are commonly used in AR-style rifles, as well as AR-style handguns, which are widely available.
Rifles: The fastest-growing segment of the small arms market, by type “

Based on type, the rifle segment is projected to grow at a highest CARG in the small arms market from 2020 to 2025.Increase in the use of rifles by military forces and law enforcement agencies and civilian participation in rifle-based shooting sports across regions has led to a growth of this segment.

Defense: The fastest-growing segment of the small arms market, by end-use sector “

The defense segment of the small arms market has been classified into military and law enforcement. The growth of the defense segment of the small arms market can be attributed to the increased spending of countries on military modernization programs, as well as the rise in terrorist activities and civil disturbances in several parts of the world.

North America: The largest contributing region in the small arms market.

North America showcases the highest demand potential for small arms, primarily due to the increased defense spending countries in the region, along with the rise in incidences of gun violence, which are driving both, law enforcement as well as civilian segments to procure small arms for counter-terrorism as well as self-defense applications, respectively.The increasing popularity of sporting and hunting activities among civilians has also led to a significantly higher demand for small arms in the North American region.
