The global military rifle market is projected to grow at lower single digit CAGR between 2019 and 2029 and valued to be a multi-billion dollar market by the end of 2029. While the demand for military rifles is increasing gradually, sniper rifles are accounting for a major market share globally. With the defence budget burgeoning in emerging economies, countries have increased procurement of the sniper rifles owing to its long range firing capacity and high accuracy. For instance, in August 2018, Ukraine has signed a deal with the Canadian firm PGW Defence Technologies to supply sniper rifles to its military. The need to procure new weaponry to modernize militaries in major economies is a key driver of the global military rifle market. The US continues to remain the market leader within the military rifle market as it supplies arms and ammunition to numerous countries around the globe and is anticipated to retain its position during the forecast period owing to a large number of agreements with the military organizations of developing countries.
