Riflescopes (Hunting, Armed Forces, Shooting Sports) Market by Sight Type, Technology, Application, Range, and Region - Global Forecast to 2025 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--()--The "Riflescopes Market by Sight Type (Telescopic, Reflex), Technology (Electro-Optic/IR, Thermal Imaging, Laser), Application (Hunting, Armed Forces, Shooting Sports), Range (Short, Medium, Long), and Region - Global Forecast to 2025" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The riflescopes market size is projected to grow from USD 6.5 billion in 2019 to USD 7.9 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 3.4% from 2019 to 2025.

Increasing demand for highly precise firearms for armed forces, and hunting & shooting sports applications are some of the factors expected to fuel market growth.

Based on the application, the hunting segment is projected to lead the riflescopes market from 2019 to 2025

Based on application, the hunting segment estimated to lead the riflescopes industry in 2019 and is expected to continue its dominance until 2025. Hunting is widely popular in North America and Europe. Countries in these regions are witnessing an increasing turnout of the population for wildlife-related activities. This has led to the growing demand for riflescopes for hunting applications. For instance, data of the US Department of the Interior shows that 101.6 million Americans, i.e., 40% of the US population of 16 years old and older - participated in wildlife-related activities in 2016.

Based on technology, the thermal imaging segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2019 to 2025

Based on technology, the thermal imaging segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The thermal sights mounted on a rifle follow the infrared radiation emitted by the target. Modern thermal imagers are low-powered, which reduce battery usage and are light in weight. These modern thermal sights are now integrated with soldiers' night-vision goggles; this interface shares the imagery from the weapon sight with goggles and displays the target in real-time.

Asia Pacific riflescopes market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period

Asia Pacific is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR in the riflescopes industry during the forecast period. Increasing incidences of territorial and armed conflicts in Asia Pacific have led the region's major economies, such as India and China, to adopt strong military measures to protect their land as well as population. In addition to this, intrastate conflicts involving insurgents and terrorists have resulted in an increased demand for riflescopes in the region.
