Ammunitions are explosives (gunpowder) used for combat operations. It includes weapon systems ranging from small to bulk size and short to large distance range. Small arm ammunition forms the bulk of the global trade (approximately 50%) and a large part is illegal or unrecorded. The rush among nations for military prowess is driving the demand for ammunition, especially those with mass destruction capacity. In addition, ammunition market is gaining importance due to the rising number of armed conflicts. At present, it is largely being used for homeland security and sporting purposes. Emergence of modernization programs and increase in spending by Russia, Middle East & Asian countries are the major factors contributing to the growth of this market.

In last few years, the ammunition market has been benefited from rising concerns pertaining to crime rates. After years of maturity, the ammunition industry has entered a novel phase of growth. One reason for this growth is increased responsibilities of state, federal and local departments for prevention of terrorist attacks and response attentiveness. Further, industry leaders in this market continue to receive huge contracts for the production of large ammunition. For instance, General Dynamics was awarded contract worth billions of dollars by the U.S. military to manufacture different ammunition components in 2011. Due to the resurgence of demand from the civilian and military sectors, ammunition industry revenue is expected to grow over the forecast period. However, possible cuts in budgets by governments, high cost related to maintaining and running a product line in a profitable manner and high investments for innovative technology are some of the challenges faced by this market.

Major visible trends in the ammunitions market include development of lightweight ammunition and increasing usage of precision munitions among militaries. The market has witnessed increased pace in development of lightweight ammunition to reduce soldier load. The U.S Department of Defense (DOD) is making efforts to reduce ammunition weight carried by soldiers on the battlefield. For instance, U.S. Government launched Lightweight Small Arms Technologies program that aims to provide lightweight ammunition and weapons to the forces. 

Precision munitions are weapons used by militaries in places where greater accuracy is required. Due to the rise in counter-terrorism, guerilla warfare and counter-insurgency operations in several countries, warfare techniques have undergone noteworthy changes during the past decade. Hence, with the rising occurrences of asymmetric conflicts by terrorists, rebel forces and insurgents, the armed forces are finding newer ways to counterbalance the enemy with innovative weapons. Guided Multiple Launched Rocket System, XM395 precision mortar and Excalibur are examples of precision munitions. Decreasing costs and rising familiarity of such weapons are responsible for the growth of precision munitions.
