Civil application to grow the highest during the forecast period

The global ammunition market has been segmented and analyzed in terms of two key application segments, namely, defense and civil. The defense segment dominates the overall market, as of 2014. However, the civil segment is projected to grow at comparatively a higher CAGR during the forecast period, mainly driven by the increased use of small caliber ammunition for sporting, hunting, and self-defense purposes. This trend is prevalent majorly in the European region.

Asia-Pacific and Africa to be the game changers in the ammunition market

The Asia-Pacific region dominates the global ammunition market, as of 2014, followed by Europe. China, India, and South Korea are among the major economies contributing to this dominance of Asia-Pacific. The possibility of hostility between North Korea and South Korea turning into an intense warfare situation is one of the key factors driving China, South Korea, and Japan towards military modernization. The need to enhance military capabilities in India has risen mainly due to increasing military threats from China and Pakistan, along with the rising incidences of terrorist attacks in the country.

The African region is projected to grow at the highest CAGR of 2.33% during the forecast period. The uprisings and armed conflicts witnessed in Syria and Libya, along with the rising insurgency activities in other parts of Africa, have led the economies of the region to take several measures towards ensuring national and border security and strengthening military capabilities, thereby driving the demand for ammunition.
