The global ammunition market is segmented, based on the caliber, into following categories:

  • Small
  • Medium
  • Large
  • Artillery
  • Mortar

Ammunition Market

As of 2016, small caliber which generally includes bullets for small firearms and handguns is the largest segment, in terms of revenue, of the overall ammunition market worldwide. Small caliber bullets are extensively used by both defense and public safety agencies for maintaining law and order. The perpetually rising crime rate in many countries across the globe has boosted the demand for small caliber bullets and is further expected to rise considerably in the following years.

Medium caliber ammunition segment trails small caliber ammunition segment in terms of revenue, as of 2016. Medium caliber ammunition is used for small rifles and sub-machine guns. Such firearms are used for defense and special task forces application. In addition, such ammunition is also used for hunting sports and sports involving firearms. With the persistent promotion of shooting sports involving firearms, the demand for medium caliber ammunition is rising at a considerable rate. Consequently, the market for medium caliber ammunition is expected to demonstrate a steady growth during the forecast period.

As of 2016, public safety is the most dominating segment in the overall end-use segment for ammunition market. Small and medium caliber firearms are extensively used by the public safety services which include homeland securities, polices forces, task forces and private security services. Annual consumption of ammunition is more for public safety when compare with defense and other end-use. With consistent rise in crime rate and increasing threat to the public safety, the demand for ammunition to maintain order is expected to rise at the same rate. Consequently, the public safety end-use is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period.

Defense segment trails the public safety segment in terms of revenue, as of 2016. Rising conflicts between countries across the globe have forced the government of these countries to expand their war capabilities. In accordance to increase their war capabilities, the governments are undertaking large procurement of ammunition. This has boosted the demand for ammunition and expected the market is expected to demonstrate consistent growth in the following years.

The global ammunition market has been segmented, on the basis of geographical regions, as per following regions and countries:

  • North America
    • U.S.
    • Canada
  • Europe
    • U.K.
    • Germany
    • France
    • Rest of Europe

    • Japan
    • China
    • India
    • Rest of Asia Pacific
  • Rest of the World (RoW)
    • Middle East and Africa
    • Latin America

Ammunition Market

Asia Pacific dominates the overall ammunition market in terms of revenue, as of 2016. The market here is backed by a growing conflicts between the many nations.
