Global Gunfire Locator For Defense Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A gunfire locator for defense is a system that is used to detect the origin of gunfire and provide information to the police or military. This type of system can be used to help protect civilians, military personnel, and property.


Acoustic Locating Devices (ALD) are used to locate the position of a target by emitting sound waves and detecting the echo. They are most commonly used in military applications for locating targets, but they can also be used for other purposes such as finding lost objects or determining the depth of water. The main factor driving this market is increasing demand from defense sector due to rise in terrorist activities around the world.


Optical is a technology that is used to detect, identify and locate targets. It uses light or optical radiation to observe and scan objects. The technology has been around for centuries but has undergone many advancements in the past few years which have made it more accurate, efficient and reliable than ever before. Optical devices are used in a variety of applications such as military intelligence gathering, surveillance operations, traffic monitoring systems etc., etc.

Application Insights:

Based on application, the global gunfire locator for defense market has been segmented into fixed/ground installation, vehicle, soldier and others. The soldier application segment is expected to dominate the overall market in terms of revenue by 2030 owing to its wide-scale adoption across various end-use industries. The demand for GLLD is anticipated to increase due to increasing military operations across various terrains and environments including urban areas and forests. Furthermore, a rise in military spending as a result of conflicts around the world has led to an increased focus on enhancing situational awareness for ground troops engaged in combat operations. This factor is projected to fuel product demand over the forecast period.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017 owing to the high demand for military equipment and presence of prominent defense companies. The U.S., being the most powerful nation, is expected to continue leading in terms of gunfire locators over the forecast period. Asia Pacific is anticipated to be one of the fastest-growing regional markets due to increasing warfare activities and growing geopolitical disputes between countries such as India, China, Japan, South Korea etc., which will eventually drive product demand over next eight years.

The Middle East & Africa region is projected to grow at a significant rate owing its large unexplored opportunities along with improving economic conditions especially within Nigeria and other African nations that are yet underdeveloped compared with oil-rich states like Saudi Arabia.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for firearms for personal safety and security
  • Rising crime rates in developing countries
  • Proliferation of illegal arms trade across regions
  • Growing awareness about the benefits of using gun fire locators for defense purposes
  • Technological advancements in gunshot detection systems
