Weapon Mounts Market Trends

  • Factors driving the market growth of the Weapon Mounts Market

The market CAGR for the weapon mounts market is being driven by the increasing investments in the military sector. An increase in the adoption of advanced war equipment, military operations, and more investments in defense systems are expected to support the market. With a significant impact on worldwide economies due to territorial and political conflicts, there has been a huge increment in spending on measures for military and tactical operations.

Additionally, the foreground adoption of armored vehicles is expected to increase the growth of the weapon mounts market during the forecast period. The growth in imbalanced warfare is compelling the military forces to opt for easy and convenient passing over capability. Owing to this, the demand for APC (armored personnel carriers) and LAV (light armored vehicles) is continuously up flowing in the recent scenario. The demand for easy movements and increasing military budgets every year have been reflected in the attraction for armored vehicles among the military forces.

Another factor attracting military forces towards armored vehicles is the capability to battle cross-border conflicts. The makers of armored transport are integrating their vehicles with advanced technologies, including countermeasure systems, command, sensors, and control systems (C2), weapon mounts, and fire control systems. Relating to the fact that armored vehicles are capable of carrying rocket launchers and machine guns, the demand for weapon mounts on armored vehicles is increasing rapidly, which is supporting the growth of the weapon mount market.

However, stability issues and the heavy weight of more solid portable mounts may hinder the growth of the market. But technical advancements in the mounting mechanism have offered non-static and static ways to operate the mounted weapons, which can be modified and converted according to the dimensions of the weapons, including machine guns, automatic guns, and others. Also, the mounts can be directly and remotely operated. Increasing investments in defense systems and the prevalence of no human harm in critical zones are expected to deploy unmanned vehicles and aircraft. Thus, driving the Weapon Mounts market revenue.

Weapon Mounts Market Segment Insights

  • Weapon Mounts Type Insights

The Weapon Mounts market segmentation, based on type, includes static mounts and non-static mounts. The non-static mounts segment dominated the market. Further, growing demand for the movement of mounted weapons on vehicles and ground operations is likely to assist the demand for non-static weapon mounts during the forecast period. Militaries around the globe are spending money on the possession of advanced mechanisms for mounting specialty weapons, thus supporting the market positively. These mounts are used in on-ground military operations, training, naval, and tactical operations, thus affecting the demand in a positive way.

However, Static mounts are expected to show significant growth during the estimated time since these mounts are used to fix targeting in the defense ground. Rising demand for unmanned war components at fixed locations such as borders and critical zones is expected to install static weapons, thus supporting the demand for static mounts.

  • Weapon Mounts Mode of Operation Insights

The Weapon Mounts market segmentation, based on mode of operation, includes manned and remotely operated. The remotely operated category generated the most income, owing to its versatility and effective target commitment. These systems often have the ability to track automatically to assist the gunner in monitoring the target continuously and shooting it accurately in motion. Furthermore, the manually operated category is always involved in boosting total customer engagement and experience.

  • Weapon Mounts Platform Insights

The Weapon Mounts market segmentation, based on the platform, includes land, maritime, and airborne. The land segment dominated the market. An increasing number of investments in the defense system all around the world, majorly for land activities, is expected to support the demand for weapon mounts positively. The mounts installed on the land find applications in infantry fighting vehicles, tanks, protected vehicles, armored carriers, and mortar carriers. These are mainly fixed mounts that require improved stability when mounted on moving objects.

However, the airborne platform segment is expected to show significant growth during the forecast time, attributed to the demand for combat aircraft by major air forces across the world.
