On the other hand, light weapons refer to those weapons that require two or three people to operate. Presently, there are more than 1,000 companies around the world producing small arms and light weapons. However, these weapons often result in massive human rights violations and the forced displacement of civilians. The impact of small arms and light weapons can be understood from the fact that, since World War II, around 90% of war casualties can be directly attributed to sales.

Police and defense modernization programs across various countries are the primary factors driving the growth of the SALW market. Moreover, growing instances of terrorist attacks and urban warfare have also impacted market growth positively. The increasing focus on the part of the various law enforcement and home security bodies towards curbing illegal activities such as drug trafficking and smuggling has also led to the increased adoption of sales.
