Military Rifle Market Report Scope & Overview:

The Military Rifle Market Several global trends will both drive and constrain the military rifle market. Increased modularity, digitalization, the growing presence of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) technologies, weight reduction, and lethality are among them. With the increasing capability and availability of attachments, rifles are becoming increasingly modular, allowing soldiers to use weapons in a "plug-and-play" fashion. To meet the mission and environmental requirements, a variety of attachments can be added to weapon platforms. Modularity is achieved by attaching Picatinny rails to the body of a weapon. It is now common for rifles to be sold with a variety of attachments, such as suppressors, to reduce the signature of a rifle when firing. Future rifle platforms will also become more modular in terms of caliber types. The ability to quickly swap the barrel of a weapon will become increasingly popular among armed forces. This enables a weapon's role to be changed to meet the needs of the engagement.

Due to the increasing amount of equipment that soldiers are expected to carry, weight reduction is still a major issue for many rifles. With lessons learned from Afghanistan and Iraq, questions about the effectiveness and lethality of the NATO 5.56mm round at range are beginning to emerge. The United States is likely to adopt a 6mm intermediate round. Forces that use the 5.56mm NATO round are likely to follow suit, resulting in a slew of rifle modernization programmers and increased competition. Current market participants will have to adapt to the change in caliber. In the short term, there will most likely be a growing demand for 7.62mm caliber weapons to meet engagement requirements. Metamaterial sciences and new projectile forms will have a significant impact on the market, with commercial and non-traditional players innovating.

By Product

An assault rifle is a rifle with an intermediate cartridge, a detachable magazine, and the ability to fire semi-automatically or fully automatic. Assault rifles are now the standard service rifles in most modern armies, followed by a lightweight machine gun designed to be operated as an infantry support weapon by a single infantryman, with or without an assistant. (GPMG) is a belt-fed weapon that can be used for everything from bipod or tripod-mounted infantry support to deployment as a helicopter door gun or vehicle-mounted support weapon. From a variety of mounts, it can provide fire support for vehicles or infantry. A sniper rifle is a long-range, high-precision rifle. Accuracy, dependability, mobility, concealment, and optics are all required for military sniper anti-personnel, anti-materiel, and surveillance missions.

By Firing Mode

The market is divided into three categories non-automatic, semi-automatic, and fully-automatic. A semi-automatic rifle is an autoloading rifle that fires one round per trigger pull. In comparison, a bolt-action rifle requires the user to manually cycle the bolt before firing a second time, whereas a fully automatic rifle will continue to fire as long as the trigger is held down. The majority of modern automatic rifles are selective fire, which means the user can fire semi-automatically if desired.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation
