The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the ammunition market revenues is deemed to be less. The pandemic might have a slight impact on the demand side dynamics of the market, as some countries might opt for budget cuts, affecting weapon and ammunition procurement programs.

Ammunition Market Overview

The ammunition market is poised to reach USD 11.85 billion by 2030, witnessing a CAGR of 4.01% during the period 2021-2030. The growth in global defense spending and initiation of infantry support programs to develop sophisticated and deadlier weaponry and ammunition is anticipated to bolster the adoption of newer generation ammunition with better penetrating power, thereby driving the growth of the ammunition market. Also, several new weapon and ammunition development programs are underway to develop lighter but deadlier ammunition with an enhanced range. The growth in technological advancements is fostering such developments. The demand for advanced weapons and related ammunition is primarily from countries in Europe and Asia-Pacific, either replacing their aging equipment or expanding their inventory to strengthen their armed forces.

Key Highlights of the Ammunition Market

  • The ammunition market is fragmented with the presence of several global and local ammunition manufacturing companies. However, the market is majorly dominated by large international players like BAE Systems, Rheinmetall, General Dynamics, and RUAG while the rest of the market share is controlled majorly by the players in local defense industries of several countries.
  • The need to maintain a sufficient inventory of ammunition with the militaries worldwide and the increasing demand for training ammunition is also anticipated to have a positive impact on the military small caliber ammunition segment. In addition, several militaries have been involved in peacekeeping missions and counter-insurgency operations in foreign countries and require a continuous supply of ammunition for continuing their operations. This has been driving the growth of the segment currently.
