Light Weapons Market Top Key Players – SAAB, Lockheed Martin

According to the small arms study, light weapons include mortars up to a caliber of 120 mm, light, under-barrel and automatic grenade launchers, heavy machine guns, portable anti-tank and anti-aircraft missile systems, as well as anti-material rifles, recoilless rifles and cannons. In 2008, at least 51 countries produced light weapons, 45 of which produced one or more complete systems, and six of them produced components or upgraded existing systems.

The proliferation of small arms and light weapons harms security, while anti-personnel mines and other weapons of mass destruction continue to cripple and kill civilians and animals long after conflicts are over. Both can destabilize social, sociological and economic growth and pose a serious threat to regional and national security.

• SALW stocks play a key role in illicit trafficking. It is easy for non-state actors to donate weapons to governments or commercial suppliers, as some weapons and ammunition storage facilities are not adequately guarded or monitored. The danger of explosions in these warehouses threatens the population, forcing them to leave their homes and destroying the environment. Small arms and light weapons are critical to human safety because of their impact on public health, human rights and socio-economic development. This makes them more of a question of human security than of national or military security.

• The cost of raw materials has fluctuated rapidly over the past decade. As a result, conflicts over the terms of defense contracts, such as the technology transfer clause, led to the cancellation of approved projects. Thanks to the ability to penetrate and incapacitate heavily armored enemies, light weapons will probably be very much needed in the future. Asia-Pacific, Middle East and African countries are increasing their annual military budgets and spending on modernizing their military arsenals due to the growing geopolitical division.

• SALW poses a threat to human security more than any other conventional weapon due to its uncontrolled proliferation and universal availability. They damage a fragile economy, stifle foreign investment, redirect economic resources and hamper basic human needs, and contribute to human rights violations. As a result of these factors, the demand for firearms increases. This never-ending loop stands in the way of progress.

• Light weapons production benefited greatly from 3D printing. The fact that this technology could be used for criminal or terrorist purposes is a serious cause for concern. Stealing or buying weapons on the black market may require less effort than printing a reliable, lethal weapon right now. However, this could soon change as 3D printing prices are falling and quality is improving, making it a viable option for the illegal production and sale of small-scale weapons.
