COVID-19 Impact on Shoulder Fired Weapons Market
Coronavirus pandemic has resulted in obstructing the movement of goods and individuals across the globe. Owing to closure/restricted movements across international borders, there has arisen a challenge in gaining cross-border information for the forces. This is expected to give rise to unprecedented attacks, which is driving the demand for counter-measure weapons such as shoulder fired weapons across the globe.

Market Drivers

Need for New-Generation Anti-Tank Weapons
Modern age warfare weaponry such as advanced tanks are loaded with Explosive Reactive Armor (ERA) technology to provide efficient safety against the traditional charged weapons, for instance, High Explosive Anti-Tank (HEAT) used for Anti-Tank Guided Missiles (ATGMs). The armour protects the tanks’ critical ceramic armour plates from the rocket-propelled armaments and ATGMs. Continuous developments in upgrading the armour technology have made raised the demand for next generation anti-tank weapons.

Demand for Lightweight Guided Weapons
A shoulder-fired weapon, for instance, shoulder-fired missile is an explosive-carrying, self-propelled missile deployed at the target. Shoulder-fired weapon is quite portable to be supported by a single person and used while carrying it on the shoulder.

This guided shoulder-fired weapon is expected to grow high in demand during the forecast period, mainly propelled by the upgradation and transformation programs, for instance, increasing use of advance guidance systems, procurement of new fire-and-forget missiles, among others.

Market Opportunities

For protecting their borders and to remain ahead of other nations in the region, the countries are continuously increasing their spending in the defense sector. Rising tensions among various countries in Asia and the Middle East are also driving the demand for shoulder-fired weapons in these regions.
