The global guns and accessories market size is expected to reach USD 11.87 billion by 2032, according to a new study by Polaris Market Research. The report “Guns and Accessories Market Share, Size, Trends, Industry Analysis Report, By Type (Air Rifle, Air Pistol, Archery, Ammunition, Auxiliary Equipment, Machine guns, Carbines, and Others); By Distribution Channel; By End-User; By Region; Segment Forecast, 2023 - 2032” gives a detailed insight into current market dynamics and provides analysis on future market growth.
The rising adoption of carbon fiber-based hybrid guns due to their various benefits is the major factor bolstering the growth of the market. Carbon fibers are used in the manufacture of guns to reduce weight, increase durability, and permit effective heat dissipation. Without losing strength or durability, carbon fiber is utilized to lighten guns. Depending on the positioning of the carbon fibers within the composite and the direction of the stress, carbon fiber composites are between 2 and 6 times stiffer than steel and aluminum for a given weight.
In addition, a gun barrel with a stiff carbon overwrap will be more rigid overall, which enhances the barrel's harmonics and makes someone's shot more accurate. In addition, carbon is considerably lighter than the steel. Manufacturers of guns can substitute carbon in place of steel steel in the gun barrel, save for the inner core, to achieve a significantly lower weight at the same diameter as a barrel constructed completely of steel.
However, OEMs are concentrating on developing new, long-lasting surface coatings that prolong gun life while preventing rust or corrosion. For instance, in October 2022, IIT-Madras researchers developed a diamond-like carbon coating that should make the gun barrel inside durable and friction-free.
The industry has benefited much from the science of coating surfaces to improve their resistance to wear and tear and, occasionally, to add lubrication. To provide Indian defense capabilities an "atmanirbhar coat," the recently established Advanced Conformal-Coating Technology (AdCoaTech) lab at IIT-Madras is developing new technologies.

Additionally, in February 2019, the US-based Benelli created a unique coating to shield the gun barrel from corrosive, abrasive, wear-causing, and external substances. The procedure, known as BE S.T. (an acronym for Benelli Surface Treatment), uses a recently enhanced and innovative hybrid technology that is still under development to produce a coating with properties that are comparable to those of a diamond: high hardness, aesthetic pureness, and corrosion resistance. Therefore, the rising adoption of carbon fiber in guns due to its advantages as well as the coatings on guns based on hybrid technology by the public and private players is bolstering the growth of the market over the forecast period.
