Growth in global sales of weapons is driving the global ammunition market
The demand for ammunition is directly dependent on the rise in security concerns, growing weapon sales, and increasing modernization programs. The increased defense expenditure is likely to boost the demand for ammunition which is needed for various weapons and other military systems, thereby driving the growth of the ammunition market.
Ammunition Market: Scope of the Report
The global ammunition market is broadly segmented by type, caliber, and application. By type, the full metal jacket (FMJ) ammunition segment is consistently expected to garner the highest market share between 2018 and 2026. The growing demand for full metal jacket (FMJ) ammunition for military applications is the major reason for its dominance throughout the forecast period. Full metal jacket provides various advantages such as high accuracy, high-volume shooting, and reduced depositing of metal due to jacket over the core. It is also cheaper and more resistant to damage, thereby escalating its demand in various industries. Additionally, tracer ammunition segment is expected to expand at a significant CAGR of 3.6% because of increasing military applications as they are visible to the naked eye during daylight, and are very bright during night time firing. By caliber, small caliber ammunition represented the highest share in 2017 and is further expected to lead the global ammunition market during the forecast period due to the growing demand for combat and premium projectiles. Small caliber ammunition segment is expected to comprise 35.3% of the overall ammunition market in 2026. By application, the military segment represented highest market share in 2017. Increasing military activities and changing role of modern military troops is increasing the demand for various ammunitions for specific applications. Furthermore, increased defense expenditure in order to reinforce the military strength, modernize the armed forces, and firmly safeguard national sovereignty, security, and development interests is further responsible for its significant share amongst all applications.

The dominance of the market in the region is attributed to presence of large number of market players. The market in Europe is anticipated to grow considerably throughout the forecast period due to the growing demand for ammunition from Russia.
