Riflescopes Market by Sight Type (Reflex, Telescopic), Technology (Thermal Imaging, Electro-Optic, Laser), Application (Armed Forces, Shooting Sports, Hunting), Region, Global Industry Analysis, Market Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2021 to 2028

Newark, NJ, Feb. 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — As per the report published by Fior Markets, the global riflescopes market is expected to grow from USD 7.35 billion in 2020 to USD 10.61 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 4.7% during the forecast period 2021-2028.

Some of the key factors that are fuelling the growth of the global riflescopes market include rising geopolitical tensions, increasing terror attacks, increasing demand for target accuracy in hand-held weapons, increasing requirement for long- & short-range target acquisition, growing popularity of shooting & hunting sports, and rising adoption of hi-tech, advanced riflescopes. Rising geopolitical tensions, especially around the South China Sea region, have led to defense budget expansions in many APAC countries like China, India, Japan, Vietnam, and Taiwan. Some other major nations that are expanding their militaries are the U.S., Russia, and France.

A good riflescope has the following characteristics: lightweight, simple & quick installation mechanism, rigid casing, high accuracy as well as precision, and adjustable range. Armies are the major buyers of riflescopes as they need them to increase the range of their assault rifles. Another key application is in competitive shooting sports. There are special types of riflescopes as well, designed for specific conditions. Night vision scopes allow acquiring the target in the night time or low light conditions. Thermal imaging riflescopes capture the heat signature of living organisms or motorized vehicles. Thermal riflescopes are available in QVGA (Quarter Video Graphics Array) & VGA (Video Graphics Array) formats.

With the outbreak of a global pandemic, many have faced salary cuts and job losses. Covid-19 has become a threat to the entire world’s economy and has negatively impacted all kinds of markets, including the riflescopes market. With less disposable income and broken supply chains, the market’s growth is expected to slow down. Other market restraints are the rising rate of the ban on hunting animals and the high price of rifle scopes.


Key players operating in the global riflescopes market include SIG SAUER, Bushnell, Hawke Optics, Burris Company, Inc., Nightforce Optics, Hensoldt, and Leupold & Stevens, Inc., among others. To gain a significant market share in the global riflescopes market, the key players are now focusing on adopting strategies such as product innovations, mergers & acquisitions, recent developments, joint ventures, collaborations, and partnerships. SIG SAUER and Hawke Optics are some of the biggest manufacturers and suppliers of riflescopes in the global market.
