Escalating Demand for Air Rifles in APAC and MEA to Propel Air Gun Market Growth in Coming Years

The demand for air rifles is growing at a faster pace in APAC due to the increasing number of sports events and the mounting interest of citizens in animal hunting. The region offers immense scope for hunters to hunt stags, gazelles, bears, roe deer, etc. In Australia, China, Japan, and Southeast Asian countries, among others, hunting is legal. For instance, in Australia, the hunting is regulated independently by each territory and state government, which govern through different laws, license requirement, and fee and fine structures. In Japan, the hunter should be 18 years and above to get a license for using air gun and projectiles (rifles and shotguns). Moreover, several sports held in 2020, such as 2nd World Deaf Shooting Championships (June 2020), 2020 Summer Olympics, 2020 Summer Paralympics, and World and continental shooting events, further propelled the market growth. The growing demand for air rifles across these countries with the increasing interest in hunting games and sports events is boosting the air gun market across APAC countries, except India.

In the MEA, the UAE and Africa are perceiving significant demand for air rifles for hunting purposes. The countries have different rules for the possession of air rifles, which mainly depend on the caliber and muzzle energy of the guns. The UAE regulates somewhat lenient regulations than other countries in the region. Likewise, in South Africa, a valid hunting license must be issued from the relevant provincial authority, which includes a permit authorizing for the usage of an air rifle for hunting. Thus, APAC and MEA are creating huge opportunities for the air gun manufacturers to expand their foothold in these regions.

Air Gun Market: Product Type

Air guns are used as instruments for hunting and firearms training, as well as toys in funfairs. Air gun is characterized into two types—rifles and pistols. These product types are also used in shooting events for 10 m air rifle and 10 m air pistol events. The increasing affordability of a high-power air gun has enabled large projectiles and longer target distance for the purpose of the competition. The demand for air rifles and air pistols is expected to rise with the increase in its adoption among individuals in the coming days with the growing number of sporting events including shooting events. In the Extreme Benchrest competition held in Arizona, US, air gun with calibers up to 0.35 inches are used for targets placed at a distance of 75 and 100 yards, while the big-bore bench rest arm types of air gun in the same competition are used for targets placed at a distance ranging from 35 to 200 yards.

The pistols segment held the largest market share in 2019 as its demand is higher among air gun users owing to the affordable prices. However, the trend of adoption of air pistols is anticipated to continue to surge and the segment is estimated to be the fastest growing during the forecast period. The stupendous growth rate of air rifles is majorly attributed to the rise in hunting and long range target shooting activities across various countries.
