Sensor Based Gun Systems Market: Worldwide Industry Analysis and New Market Opportunities Explored

The sensor based gun systems are also known as sentry guns, is a firearm which automatically aims and fires the intended target. The activation feature prevents the misuse, accidental shooting, and usage against the authorized owner. These sensor based gun systems are integrated with various sensor systems such as fingerprint recognition, radio frequency identification (RFID) chips and mechanical locks, which determine an unauthorized target and authorized owner.

The major factor boosting the market for sensor based gun systems is the growing concerns regarding securing of international borders. The world is facing a huge challenge against increasing terrorism, and in order to secure the international borders from cross-border firing and illegal infiltration, the defense forces in the developed as well as developing countries are adopting these sensor based gun. In addition, these guns are manufactured with composite materials which reduces the weight of the final product, and this in turn allows the user to use these gun easily. This factor has also led in rise in preference of this product among the defense forces, which is propelling the market to grow in future.

The key inhibiting factor for the growth of sensor based gun systems market in future is the risk of malfunction of the systems. These gun systems are integrated with various sensors and if any of the sensor’s malfunction during the operation, the effectiveness and efficiency of the firearm reduces, which has an adverse effect on the user. This factor is retraining the military forces from procuring the sensor based gun systems, which in turn is limiting the growth of the market in future.

The market for sensor based gun systems are poised to expand over the years due to the emergence of smart guns, which has the ability to distinguish between an unauthorized user and an authorized user. The smart guns are anticipated to increase the adoption rate of sensor based gun systems among the defense forces across the globe, which in turn will benefit the growth of the market in the coming years.
