Research and Markets: Military Modernization Efforts to Help Drive Ammo Demand Through 2027

A new Research and Markets report forecasts that the worldwide market for military ammunition products will grow at a 2.21 percent annual compound growth rate to reach $16.6 billion in value by 2027.

The report predicts North America will spend $69.3 billion on military ammo through 2027.

Asia Pacific is forecast to hold the 25.8 percent market share driven by purchases from Australia, China, India and South Korea.

Companies featured in the report are:

  • BAE Systems
  • General Dynamics
  • Maxam
  • Nammo
  • Nexter Munitions
