Market Overview:

The global smart gun market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.8% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The market growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for smart guns from law enforcement and defense applications, and the growing awareness about the benefits of using smart guns. The global smart gun market is segmented on the basis of type, application, and region. On the basis of type, the market is segmented into RFID-basedsmart guns, biometric-basedsmart guns, and other typesofsmartguns.onthebasisofregion,.

Global Smart Gun Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A smart gun is a firearm that is equipped with a microchip that allows it to be fired only by authorized users. The chip can be programmed to recognize the fingerprints of the authorized user, or it can be paired with a wearable device like a ring or bracelet.


Radio-frequency identification (RFID) is a technology that involves the use of radio waves to automatically and remotely track objects. The technology was initially developed for tracking tags attached to dogs, cats, and humans. However, it is now being used for tracking almost every kind of product including pharmaceuticals, automobiles, pallets of goods in warehouses or even people themselves.


Biometrics is a series of techniques that use unique characteristics of an individual to authenticate a transaction. It helps in the verification of an individual by using some physical features like fingerprint, iris, face recognition and signature. The smart gun technology uses biometric data for security purposes which are more convenient than traditional methods as it does not require any additional devices or passwords for logging on to the account.

Benefits offered by biometrics such as high level of security.

Application Insights:

The defense segment dominated the global smart gun market in 2017 and is expected to retain its dominance over the forecast period. The growing need for weapon systems that are reliable, safe, and secure is a key factor driving product adoption in defense applications. Furthermore, governments from across the world are taking initiatives to develop a robust smart gun ecosystem by developing standards & specifications for various components such as RFID tags, biometric sensors, batteries etc. which will help manufacturers meet stringent government regulations while launching new products into the market.

The other application segment includes commercial applications such as retail stores or banks where customers require protection against armed intruders while entering premises overnight or during holidays when security personnel may be outnumbered by criminals seeking entry into fortified areas with high walls.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017. The U.S., being a developed nation, is expected to witness higher adoption of smart guns over the forecast period. However, there are some states such as Connecticut and New York that have banned the sale of smart guns due to lack of understanding and concern about these weapons’ safety features. Moreover, after every few years an incident happens in which a gun fires by accident; for instance, in 2015 one person was killed when his neighbor's handgun went off while they were cleaning it at home (U.S.).

Asia Pacific is anticipated to be one of the fastest-growing regions during the forecast period owing to rising demand from countries such as India and China where government regulations regarding gun ownership are less stringent compared with other countries including Australia and United Kingdom respectively thus making it easier for manufacturers introduce new technologies into their products thereby boosting market growth over next eight years or so till 2030 AD (unless governments ban them first).

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for smart guns from the law enforcement and military sectors due to their enhanced safety features.
  • Rising awareness about the benefits of using smart guns among civilians, which is likely to boost the market growth in the coming years.
  • Growing number of shootings and gun-related accidents across the globe, resulting in an increased demand for technologically advanced firearms that can prevent such incidents.
  • Proliferation of gun control laws and regulations encouraging the use of smart guns as a safer alternative to conventional firearms.
