Report Highlights

7.62 x 39mm caliber led the market and accounted for more than 12% share of the global revenue in 2020 on account of an increase in the utilization due to its compatibility in the AK-47 line of rifles. Moreover, these are quite affordable due to their high availability and user acceptance across all the regions. One of the major factors addressing its usage in the AK series lineup is the gun’s moderate coil and high-knockdown power. This product type is widely used in the military as well as by civil entities, especially for sports and hunting activities.

7.62 x 54mm ammunition is one of the prominent choices of the users owing to its active consumption in military use. It is one of the rimmed rifle cartridges that are widely used by the Russian military in the Dragunov, SV-98, and other sniper rifles. Moreover, it is widely used in countries, such as India, Egypt, and Algeria, owing to its applications in general-purpose machine guns, such as Pecheneg and PKM machine guns.

Asia Pacific dominated the market and accounted for over 68% share of revenue in 2020. The regional market is estimated to expand further at the fastest CAGR from 2020 to 2027 owing to growth in the procurement of bullets and other small ammunition in the armed forces as a result of geopolitical tension and terrorist activities in the region. The market in Middle East & Africa accounted for a significant share owing to the high arms & ammunition imports in the region. Saudi Arabia accounted for the world’s largest arms imports from the U.S. In addition, the region accounted for almost 29% of the global arms and ammunition imports.

The increase in arms import and government involvement for higher arms purchases in the region, especially in countries such as Algeria, Egypt, Kuwait, to tackle terrorism and border disputes are anticipated to propel the growth. The market in Central & South America is expected to grow at a significant rate over the forecast period on account of the high number of gun-related crimes, especially in Brazil, owing to the societal norms and relaxed law regulations. The countries, such as Brazil, Peru, and Chile, import the majority of the ammunition for civilians and the military from the U.S., and the trend is expected to continue over the forecast period.
