North America is expected to account for the largest ammunitions market share in 2022 wherein the US is expected to account for the largest ammunitions market share in the North America region. The US has the largest defense budget in the world, and a large amount of budget is accolated for the adoption and procurement of upgraded technologies, safety, and security provisions, etc., which further augment the ammunitions market growth in the country. According to SIPRI, the country’s military spending was 3.7% and 3.5% of its GDP in 2020 and 2021, respectively. In 2021, the US military spending was US$ 801 billion compared to US$ 778 billion in 2020. During 2012–2021, US funding for military research and development (R&D) increased by 24%. Thus, the rise in military expenditure favors the ammunitions market growth in North America region.

According to the SIPRI data, the military expenditure of the US was ~US$ 734 billion, US$ 778 billion, and US$ 800 billion in 2019, 2020, and 2021, respectively.

For instance, the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine & China and Taiwan, and constantly rising tensions between countries such as India and China, India and Pakistan, the US and Russia (Cold War situation), and Germany and Russia are generating huge demand for ammunitions across North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific. Moreover, since February 2022, most European countries have already announced their intentions of doubling their military budgets. In March 2022, Germany, Belgium, Romania, Italy, Poland, Norway, and Sweden announced an increase in their defense spending for 2023 due to the invasion of Russia in Ukraine.

The ammunition industry is continuously exploring ways to evolve the most common small-caliber ammunition, such as 5.56mm and 7.62mm bullets. As a result, several vendors are focusing on finding ways to use new and advanced materials that provide more strength to the product with lighter weight capabilities. These materials can also reduce overall operational costs, improve product performance, and gradually address environmental concerns, thereby addressing the concerns associated with lead contamination, as every bullet that is fired from a gun releases some amount of lead into its surroundings. Such developments are catalyzing the demand for new and innovative ammunition solutions, and thereby driving the ammunitions market growth.

The rising demand for defense equipment from the military is expected to boost demand for ammunition as geopolitical tensions rise around the world. The Indian Army plans to increase the number of artillery and mortar platforms through domestic development programs and foreign procurement over the next decade, thereby meeting ammunition demand during the forecast period. Further, the ammunitions market is fragmented due to the presence of various actors supporting the defense sector. These players are focusing on different strategies to expand their product offerings and strengthen their geographic footprint. For instance, BAE Systems and the UK Ministry of Defense (MOD) have awarded a US$ 257.92 million contract in July 2021 to advance the design and development of Tempest, the UK’s Future Combat Air System (FCAS).
