The global ammunition market is projected to grow from USD 6.40 Billion in 2014 to USD 7.78 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 1.93% during the period under consideration. This report covers the forecasts of the ammunition market and its dynamics over the next five years, while also recognizing the market application gaps, evolving technologies, recent developments in the market, and high potential geographic regions and countries. The ammunition market has been analyzed on the basis of ammunition type (including small caliber, medium caliber, large caliber, artillery, mortar) and application (defense, civil), considering 2014 as base year and 2015 to 2020 as the forecast period.

The increase in transnational disputes and terrorism is expected to drive the growth of the ammunition market during the forecast period of 2015 to 2020. While this will be offset by the reduction in defense spending by developed nations, the increasing defense budgets of emerging economies to meet the rising need for advanced, efficient, and reliable ammunition, and the trend of military modernization across these nations are expected to drive the overall market growth further. With increased emphasis worldwide on range, weight, precision, and lethality of ammunition, guided precision munition is one of the major technologies that is expected to significantly impact the dynamics of the overall market during the forecast period.

The market size estimations for the various segments and subsegments of this market were arrived at through extensive secondary research, corroboration with primaries, and further market triangulation with the help of statistical techniques using econometric tools.

The global ammunition market is estimated to reach a value of USD 7.78 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 1.93% from 2015 to 2020. Terrorism, regional disputes, and geopolitical disputes, among others, have become a mainstay phenomenon across the globe. The resultant rise in risk of national security and the impacts on population have driven governments, military, and homeland security personnel towards procuring and maintaining inventory of advanced warfare equipment and ammunition.

Defense and civil are the two key application segments considered in the market study. The defense segment dominates the overall ammunition market, as of 2014. The civil application segment is projected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period of 2015 to 2020. The rapid growth of this segment can be attributed to the increasing demand from civilians for small caliber ammunition for sporting, hunting, and self-defense purposes; this trend is primarily being observed in the European region.

The key ammunition types considered in the market study include small caliber (5.56mm, 7.62mm, 9mm, 12.7mm, others), medium caliber (20mm, 25mm, 30mm, 40mm, others), large caliber (57mm, 90mm, 120mm, others), artillery, and mortar. Among these ammunition types covered in the report, the ammunition market is dominated by the small caliber ammunition segment. The rising incidences of terrorism worldwide have led defense and law enforcement agencies towards procurement of advanced and efficient small caliber ammunition for improved combat performance and counter-terrorism operations, thereby leading to the dominance of the small caliber ammunition segment. The artillery ammunition segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The rapid growth of this segment can be attributed to the increasing transnational disputes and military budgets, which are further leading major emerging economies towards enhancement of their military capabilities. This directly translates into procurement of advanced and reliable ammunition and weapon systems, including artillery, mortar, armored vehicles, and so on.

Asia-Pacific is the largest market for ammunition, globally, as of 2014, followed by Europe. The market in Africa is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The rising insurgent and terrorist activities in the region are among the major factors driving the rapid growth of the African ammunition market.

Ammunition Market

The growth of the ammunition market may be, however, affected by certain major restraints in the coming years. These factors include the declining budgets of the major economies of North America and Europe; especially the U.S., which is one of the most important players of the arms and ammunition industry, globally.

The key players operating in the global ammunition market have been identified to be Orbital ATK (U.S.), General Dynamics (U.S.), BAE Systems (U.K.), Poongsan Corporation (South Korea), and Nammo AS (Norway), among others. Long-term contracts and mergers & acquisitions are the two major growth strategies adopted by the major players to strengthen their positions in the global ammunition market, while also enhancing their product offerings.
