The report provides actionable intelligence on major factors influencing the Man-Portable Rocket Launcher market (drivers, opportunities, industry specific challenges, and other critical issues) along with the Man-Portable Rocket Launcher market size of various segments.

A rocket launcher is any weapon system that launches a rocket/missile-propelled projectile. Rocket launchers come in various sizes, shapes, and uses. Depending on the method of application, they can be classified into infantry variant rocket launchers like man-portable and large-scale variants like vehicle-mounted rocket launchers. While man-portable rocket launchers can be carried by an individual or group of individuals to the site of operation, vehicle-mounted rocket launchers are the ones that are mounted on any kind of vehicles such as aircraft, ships, trucks, tankers, and armored vehicles.

Man-Portable Rocket Launcher Market Drivers, Challenges and Trends: –

Market Driver: – One driver in the market is growing usage by law enforcement agencies. law enforcement agencies across countries have started using portable rocket launchers to fight internal extremism and terrorism and to maintain the overall law and order situation within the country. since 1990, the us police department has been receiving over $4.3 billion worth equipment like machine guns, rocket launchers or grenades, and mine-resistant ambush protected vehicles. further, the excess military equipment available to army troops is handed over to the state police.

Market Challenge: – One challenge in the market is trade-off between single shot and reloadable rocket launchers. the strength of the single-shot disposable systems is that they are much more portable than reloadable systems. most of the single-shot disposable systems (at4, rpg-26, and m72 law) weigh up to 511.02 pounds. also, some designs allow these systems to be fired from confined spaces without harming the operator. in reloadable systems, the amount of recoil flash or smoke is high, eliminating its use in closed space. single-shot systems are beneficial mostly for small infantry squads. when there is a need for raw firepower, sighting capability and adaptability, reloadable rocket launchers (rpg-7, rpg-16, rpg-29 that belongs to tow family) are the apt weapons. also, reloadable systems are adaptable to different types of warheads and loads like heat, hesh, illumination, smoke, high explosive, and air burst warheads and can be used for various attack missions. these features save rocket launchers from becoming obsolete. the flip side of reloadable rocket launch systems is that they are often heavier and more expensive to maintain. it becomes cumbersome for even nine men to carry 20 rounds of reloadable anti-tank armor with four recoilless rifles load, thereby affecting their mobility, which is a critical factor during missions. so, there lies a trade-off between factors and goals of the mission.

Market trend: – One trend in the market is emergence of multi-featured systems. The lightweight, man-portable recoilless rifle, M3 Carl Gustaf, developed by Saab is a cross between an artillery gun and a Bazooka. The system has its propellant at the base of the projectile like a rocket, which stops it from burning beyond the barrel, and therefore, the propulsion system in the rocket or missile helps in the faster forward movement of the missile. The system has been made recoilless by enabling the propellant gas to be directed backward. M3 Carl Gustaf is a tube-like artillery that follows the same model. In addition, its tube-like structure also allows the elimination of most of the heavy and bulky recoiling mechanisms in traditional rocket launchers. These recoilless weapon systems are often referred to as rifles because of their spiral rifling in the barrel, which stabilizes the projectile
