Weapon Mounts Market Report Scope & Overview:

The Weapon Mounts Market Size was valued at USD 1.63 billion in 2022, expected to reach USD 2.99 billion by 2030 with a growing CAGR of  7.9% over the forecast period 2023-2030.

The weapon mount market is expected to grow significantly in the coming years, owing to increased demand from countries' modernization plans for their forces. A weapon mount is a piece of equipment used to hold weapons such as guns and snipers. Weapon mounts are classified into two types: static mounts and non-static mounts. Static weapon mounts are either directly mounted on the ground or integrated into the vehicle, whereas non-static weapon mounts are portable, meaning they can change position and revolve. New laser weapon innovations also pave the way for the growth of the weapon mounts market, as the DRDO recently tested a laser weapon mounted on a truck.

Value chain analysis

Countries such as the United States and the Asia-Pacific region anticipate faster growth in the industry due to increased demand for ground, naval, and airborne platforms. Static mounts, which include turrets, coaxial mounts, fixed mounts, and pedestals, are in higher demand than other types. Static mounts are increasingly being used in harsh terrains such as sea-based platforms and land-based platforms. Because some military sectors have a higher demand for portability, they use non-static mounts. The armoured vehicles also make extensive use of weapon mounts, as well as fire control and command control systems. These vehicles could be equipped with machine guns, which has boosted the overall growth of the weapon mounts industry in recent years.

This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

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.

Secondary Research

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.

Primary Research

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

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Data Bank Validation

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.
