The global Ammunition market size is expected to be worth around US$ 28.40 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.
The global Ammunition market size was valued at US$ 21.38 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 3.10% during forecast period 2021 to 2030.
Increasing investments in defense equipment by militaries on account of the rise in geopolitical tension across the globe are anticipated to drive the product demand. Increasing procurement of artillery and mortar platforms by the Indian Army through several development platforms are expected to raise the number of ammunition over the forecast period. Also, the rise in hostilities is expected to boost the product demand in the Middle Eastern countries during the projected period.
Technological innovations for the replacement of brass-based bullet cases with polymer-based bullet cases are expected to offer growth prospects to the market. Application of polymer materials in bullets reduces the ammunition weight by over 40%, wherein the impact of the same is unaffected, thereby making it lighter and accurate as compared to conventional bullets. Rising geopolitical issues, warlike situations, and increasing terrorist activities across the globe are leading to the rise in product stockpiling by the prominent militaries and armed forces. This strategy is likely to offer cost savings as the products are purchased in high volume at cheap prices, which, in turn, also supports market growth.
The small caliber ammunition segment accounted for the largest market share of over 50% in 2020 owing to a wide array of applications in shotgun pistols, assault rifles, rifles, and revolvers. Also, the segment is likely to witness the fastest CAGR from 2021 to 2028 on account of increasing demand for these products from security forces to tackle the rising number of instances of armed conflicts.
Increasing procurement of medium caliber products by the U.S. Army and its alliances is expected to boost the segment growth in the coming years. Medium caliber ammunition includes high-performance 20mm, 25mm, 30mm, and 40mm cartridges for a broad range of applications including land, sea, and air with the capability to penetrate light armor, material, and personnel target. Increasing use of guns and rifles by the prominent militaries across the globe is anticipated to augment the demand for medium caliber products.
The large-caliber segment is further classified into spin-stabilized, fin-stabilized, and rocket-assisted, which is a combination of spin-stabilized and fin-stabilized. A majority of the guns use the spin-stabilized large-caliber cartridge as it promotes flight stability using spinning, whereas fin-stabilized projectiles obtain stability through the fins located at the end of the projectile.
The centerfire product segment dominated the global market accounting for a revenue share of over 66% in 2020. These products are usually used for rifles, shotguns, and handguns. In centerfire ammunition, the primer is placed in the center of the casing base. This type of ammunition is reloadable and hence is the most common type of cartridge used.
Centerfire ammunition is used as a universal standard in military, police, and security forces owing to its potential to allow high pressure and the ability to reuse the casings. These cartridges are preferred for military operations owing to their thicker metal casing that can withstand rough handling without high damage.
The rimfire segment is expected to register a steady CAGR of 3.5% over the estimated period owing to the increasing product demand. Rimfire bullets are preferred by beginners as they offer limited recoil when they are being used. Moreover, they are cheaper as their thin casing with a flattened primer is easy to manufacture; however, they are limited to small calibers. This can be attributed to the fact that the nature of the bullet casing is required to be thin enough to crush and ignite the primer, which is difficult to accomplish in medium and large calibers. This type of ammunition is commonly used for .22LRs.
The defense application segment led the market in 2020 and accounted for a revenue share of 76.2%. The segment is likely to retain its dominant position throughout the forecast period. Increasing cross-border conflicts have fueled the growth of the bullets market across the globe. Moreover, rising geopolitical tension and terrorist activities are expected to increase product penetration. Full metal jacket bullets are used in military handguns on a large scale, whereas air-force tends to use hollow-point bullets for greater accuracy. Hollow-point bullets are popular for use among law enforcement and military personnel due to their rapid expansion property and excellent stopping power.
The semi-jacketed hollow-point bullets, known for their controlled penetration and high stopping power, can create a larger than average wound cavity and ensure effective results in a single shot. Thus, these bullets are typically used for self-defense, pistol target shooting, and backyard shooting. The rise in procurement of advanced products is likely to offer growth opportunities to the segment. With the advancements in technology, bullets capable of turning, changing their speed, and sending data are being developed by major countries including Russia, U.S., and others. Thus, technological developments are expected to aid the market growth.
North America was the largest regional market in 2020 and accounted for a share of over 33%. The growing terrorist activities coupled with lenient gun laws are expected to promote the consumption of bullets. Furthermore, the surge in sports and hunting activities is expected to be a crucial factor for market growth.
Moreover, high demand from the U.S. is expected to support the regional market growth. The defense budget in North America has increased, which is heavily influencing the bullets market in the region. The long-term competitive strategy of the U.S. Department of Defense for the development of technologies and new concepts of warfare is expected to aid the market growth.
In Europe, the directives are provided by the government for possession of firearms, the supply of firearms in a single market, and a protocol against the manufacturing and trafficking of firearms. The European defense system has faced challenges in dealing with refugees from the Middle East and Syria. Due to these factors, the region has faced a threat of terrorism. This, in turn, is expected to boost the ammunition market in Europe over the forecast period.
