Air Gun & Airsoft Gun Manufacturing
The tale of the Air Gun and Airsoft Gun Manufacturing industry mirrors several industries within the US manufacturing sector that rely on plastic and steel to produce relatively small, simple goods: Production has moved overseas. In addition to the pervasive outsourcing, the recessionary period of 2009 limited consumer sentiment and incomes and input prices have been rising. While the industry's performance outlook is positive, revenue growth will be slow and imports are forecast to remain high.
This industry primarily manufactures air guns and airsoft guns, which are distinct from firearms. Air guns and airsoft guns use air or gas, while firearms burn a propellant. Air guns and airsoft guns are used for hunting, pest control, recreational shooting and competitive sports. Spring-loaded, pneumatic, gas-powered and electric guns are included, but guns designed specifically for paintball are excluded.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
