The Weapon mounts market was valued at US$ 1,026.0 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach US$ 1,727.0 billion by 2027; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.8% from 2020 to 2027.The stimulating demand for remote weapon stations and increasing military expenditureare some of the key driving factors for global weapon mounts market.Moreover, accentuating adoption of armored vehiclesis anticipated to drive the growth of weapon mounts market during the forecast period.However, stability issues and heavy weight of solider portable mountsmay hinder the growth of the market.The growth in asymmetric warfare is propelling the military forces to opt for easy and convenient traversing capability. Owing to this, the demand for armored personnel carriers (APC) and light armored vehicles (LAV) is continuously up surging in the current scenario. The demand for easy maneuverability and increasing military budgets year on year has been reflecting increased attraction for armored vehicles among the military forces. Another factor gaining attraction of military forces towards armored vehicles is the capability to combat cross-border conflicts. The manufacturers of armored vehicles are integrating their vehicles with advanced technologies, including sensors, countermeasure systems, command and control systems (C2), weapon mounts, and fire control systems. Pertaining to the fact that the armored vehicles are capable of carrying machine guns, rocket launchers, the demand for weapon mounts on armored vehicles is accentuating rapidly, which is supporting the growth of weapon mounts market.
