The global small and medium caliber ammunition market grew at a CAGR of approximately 4% during the period 2015-2020. Looking ahead, the publisher expects the market to show moderate growth over the period 2021-2026. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we continuously monitor and assess the direct and indirect influence of the pandemic on different end-use sectors.

Ammunition refers to the projectiles and propellant charges that ignite the propellant of small arms, rifles, and artillery. These include various expendable weapons, such as missiles, bombs, grenades, and landmines, as well as materials fired or exploded by these weapons, including bullets and warheads. The inside diameter (bore) of a gun barrel is called the caliber. Generally, projectiles less than 20 mm in diameter are called small caliber ammunition, while those with a diameter between 20 mm and 40 mm are called medium caliber.

The market is mainly driven by the growing incidence of geopolitical tensions, territorial disputes and terrorism across the globe. This has prompted governments to increase their defense budgets and invest heavily in replacing the traditional arsenal with modern, state-of-the-art weapons with advanced technologies. Along with this, the growing use of medium caliber ammunition due to their compatibility with the AK series of rifles, coupled with their affordability and easy availability, also acts as a major growth factor.

On the other hand, the demand for small caliber ammunition for light sport pistol and rifle shooting activities has increased significantly. Growing attention to shooting as a major sporting activity and increase in the number of shooting competitions being held globally is expected to provide impetus for the growth of the market. The market is further boosted by the development of lightweight bullets that widely use polymer casing in their production, which are gaining prominence among end users owing to the increased convenience offered by their use.
