Rise in territorial conflicts throughout the world

In recent years, the world has witnessed an upward trend in wars and conflicts across numerous nations across the world. The recent political upheaval that happened in Afghanistan in August 2021 has brought the country in a permanent state of chaos. The rise in terrorist attacks and violent conflicts in the country is expected to lead to more unfavorable instances across the neighboring nations in the near future.  Currently, there are numerous ongoing wars and minor conflicts in several countries globally, most of which are in the Middle East, North West Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa, and a major ongoing drug-war in Mexico. Nations across the world are buying arms and ammunitions to counter the terrorism, block the entry of enemy soldiers, and curb the anti-national activities. Moreover, the misfortunate events that happened last year in the countries such as the U.S. and France, have resulted in a large number of citizens carrying guns for self-defense purposes. Such factors are anticipated to propel the growth of the global shooting and gun accessories market during the forecast period.  

Increase in demand for guns for competitive sports

Sport gun is referred as a non-lethal weapon that includes rifle, pistol, and shotgun.  It is intended for competitive shooting and recreational purposes. These guns differ from one lethal counterpart according to their technology, projectile, caliber, and others. Sports guns are lighter and more comfortable to use as compared to lethal guns such as AK 47, Rheinmetall MG 3, Uzi, M4 Carbine, and others.

Competitive Sports is projected as the most lucrative segments

Increasing participation in various shooting sports acts as a key factor driving the gun and gun accessories market growth. Sporting sports include target shooting, high power rifle, popinjay, sporting clays, skeet shooting, cowboy action shooting, and others. In addition, people are increasingly participating in shooting sports globally, owing to various benefits such as they enhance physical health, focus and sharpen eyesight. Furthermore, growing participation of school and college kids/students in national level shooting sports is expected to promote the growth of the market. The rise in participation for shooting competitions across the world is expected to fuel the growth of the global shooting and gun accessories market during the forecast period.

Stringent government regulations on gun ownership

Numerous countries across the world have strict rules for the ownership of the guns. In the past years, owing to various misfortunate events involving gun fire, many nations have banned the sales or tightened the ownership processes of owning guns for an ordinary citizen. In the UK, only police officers, members of the armed forces or people with written permission from the home secretary may legally own a handgun. Gun owners have to obtain either a Shotgun Certificate or a Firearm Certificate. In Australia, gun owners are required to demonstrate a genuine need for a particular type of gun, which doesn’t include self-defense, and to take a firearm safety course. License holders also must meet strict storage requirements, including keeping ammunition stored separately. In China, civilians are not permitted to have guns and can face life imprisonment for trafficking firearms. They can obtain a firearm for hunting only after a strict licensing process. Conviction for illegal possession or sale of firearms is punishable by up to 10 years in prison and up to life for arms trafficking, according to the Supreme People's Court. Such factors are anticipated to limit the growth of the global shooting and gun accessories market during the forecast period.

Rise in defense expenditure globally

The global military expenditure has seen exponential growth in recent years. According to Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), the global military expenditure has reached $1,981 billion in 2020 with a 2.6% year-on-year increase. To modernize the defense forces in order to tackle the rise in threats of wars and other conflicts, many nations are continuously increasing their defense spending in order to purchase and manufacture guns, ammunitions and accessories. 

The military expenditure accounted for 2.4% of the global gross domestic product in 2020. Thus, an increase in global military expenditure has augmented the adoption of modern guns and gun accessories. 
The procurement of modern guns is costly and requires large capital spending for its integration in a variety of platforms. However, an increase in military and defense expenditure globally facilitates the procurement of expensive but necessary weapon systems. Furthermore, advancements of weapons and attacking capabilities worldwide have created the demand for modernization and installation of sophisticated defense infrastructure by governments to be prepared for any unprecedented threats and offensive attacks from foreign countries. Hence, the increase in defense expenditure is expected to open new avenues for the growth of the shooting and gun accessories market during the forecast timeframe.

Analyst Review

The global shooting and gun accessories market is expected to witness significant growth owing to high demand for guns and accessories from the defense forces, and rise in demand for guns for self-defense purposes by citizens across various nations, along with the rise in shooting competitions across the world.

Rise in territorial conflicts throughout the world and increase in demand for guns for competitive sports are expected to drive the shooting and gun accessories market growth during the forecast period. However, stringent government regulations on gun ownership is one of the prominent actors that are expected to restrain the growth of the shooting and gun accessories market during the forecast period. Moreover, rise in defense expenditure globally is one of the major factors that is expected to supplement the shooting and gun accessories market.

In order to gain a fair share of the market, major players active in the market are involved in designing and developing lightweight, cost-effective guns and accessories to increase their sales. Key players are focusing on business expansion via different strategies such as product launches, partnerships, contracts, and others. Moreover, relaxing of gun ownership norms in different nations could boost the sales of guns and accessories globally.
