Guns and Ammunition Sales to Boost Due to Increasing Emphasis on Personal Safety & Self-defense Across the US

The US Guns and Ammunition Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of around 2.3% during the forecast period of 2024-30, cites MarkNtel Advisors in the recent research report. Rising apprehensions about increasing crime rates, home invasions, and incidents of violence have fostered a widespread feeling of vulnerability. This has led individuals to actively pursue methods of self-protection. The heightened demand for self-defense means has been accentuated by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and civil unrest, intensifying the emphasis on personal safety. As a result, there has been a significant surge in the adoption of guns and ammunition in the country over the historical period.

Moreover, the US is witnessing a surge in frequent mass shootings, attributed to factors such as mental health issues and social alienation. According to the Federal Investigation Bureau, in 2022, the number of active shooter incidents increased by about 66.7% compared to 2018. In response to the perceived threat posed by mass shootings, individuals are increasingly obtaining guns as a precautionary measure to protect themselves and their communities. This has significantly fueled the expansion of the market in recent years. Furthermore, the media's extensive coverage of mass shootings and their aftermath contributes to a heightened sense of vulnerability, influencing public perception and shaping attitudes towards firearm ownership, thereby contributing to enhancing the US Guns and Ammunition Market size.

Additionally, in the face of persistent geopolitical tensions, the country has heightened its expenditures on cutting-edge weapon systems and ammunition to align with the growing capabilities of China and Russia in military engagements. Moreover, the active involvement in NATO missions overseas is creating significant demand for a variety of ammunition types. These circumstances are anticipated to propel market growth in the forthcoming years, further states the research report, “The US Gun and Ammunition Market Analysis, 2024.”
