Ammunition Market Exhibits Positive Growth amid Rising Geopolitical Tensions

Growing hostilities and terrorist activities are propelling the demand for ammunition worldwide. The development of light weight bullets using polymer casings is another driving factor for ammunition manufacturers. The light weight nature of these bullets allow for more ammunition to be carried by soldiers, which in turn increases the demand for ammunition. Disruptive trends such as online sales channels are expected to bolster growth for small caliber ammunition during the forecast period. Increasing popularity of sports shooting activities among consumers is central to the mass-adoption of small caliber and light weight ammunition via online sales channels. On the back of these factors the global ammunitions market is expected to grow 1.4x between 2019 and 2029.

Centerfire Ammunition to Remain in Forefront

Centerfire ammunition leads the ammunition market. Centerfire is the gold standard in ammunition globally, owing to its ability to endure high-pressure shooting, recyclable casings, and safety features. The centerfire segment has a market share of more than 69% with a healthy growth rate throughout the forecast period. This type of ammunition offers high energy and velocity to bullets, the thick metal casing in centerfire guns can withstand coarse handling and provide much needed longevity. Defense forces such as military and homeland security agencies around the world rely on centerfire ammunition for mission critical operations.

North America Leads Demand Generation, East Asia Buckling-up

North America accounts for more than a quarter of the total market, however, the developed region exhibits sluggish growth rate. In December 2019, the US senates cleared US$ 738 Bn defense budget which included development of a novel space force. Regions in Asia such as East Asia and South Asia & Oceania offer lucrative growth opportunities with growth rates above 4% and 5% respectively. In December 2019, India and the US conjured Industrial Security Index which is expected to drive significant deals and partnerships between US ammunition manufacturers and the Indian private sector. Developing economies in Asia are investing in aerospace & defense to proactively prepare for surging geopolitical tension between neighboring countries.
