The global small caliber ammunition market generated $7.37 billion in 2018 and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 3.19% during the forecast period 2018-2023.

With the U.S. acquiring the most significant market share, globally, North America dominated the global small caliber ammunition market in 2017. However, Asia-Pacific is expected to have the highest growth rate during the forecast period 2018-2023.

The small caliber ammunition industry, in recent years, has seen manufacturers developing ammunition of different calibers for both commercial and military applications. Of late, with the growing interests of people in activities such as hunting and shooting along with the rising concern for personal defense, the small caliber ammunition industry has been observing a robust growth.

For instance, trends such as trophy hunting or target shooting have become popular in major countries around the world. Target shooting (such as skeet shooting, trap shooting, and sporting clays), in particular, is being increasingly practiced by both sportsmen and youngsters alike. Adding to this, there is an increase in the demand for handguns and ammunition for self-defense owing to the increasing crime rates and growing fear due to the influx of refugees in various nations across the globe.

There have been increments made in the overall defense spending of various countries all over the world. The growing defense budget of the different countries is playing a major part in the defense modernization program adopted for strengthening the nation's military forces.

The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) has the highest defense budget of $611 billion for FY 2017 that includes army, navy, and air force defense budgets for a wide-range of ammunition. Asia-Pacific is one of the emerging regions that is continuously increasing expenditure on defense in order to develop the military power. This has increased the overall imports of arms and ammunition by a number of emerging countries in the Asia-Pacific region.

Furthermore, China had the second largest defense budget after the U.S. for FY 2017. The growing demand for small firearms ammunition in emerging countries (such as Asia-Pacific, Middle East, and Africa) is likely to increase opportunities for small caliber ammunition players across different sectors, including civilian, law enforcement, hunting & sports, and military. The rapid increase in civilian conflicts and terrorist clutter across the world has further increased the business prospects for the ammunition industry.

The key players actively participating in the global small caliber ammunition market are Northrop Grumman, Nammo AS, BAE Systems, General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems, Singapore Technologies Engineering Ltd, Poongsan Corporation, Denel SOC Ltd (Denel PMP), and Global Ordnance, among others.
