“The rising demand for automatic ammunition handling systems and increasing modernization programs in various countries across the globe are major factors driving the growth of the ammunition handling system market.”
The ammunition handling system market is expected to grow from USD 2.30 billion in 2017 to USD 3.50 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 8.75% during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to the rising incidences of asymmetric warfare and increasing investments to enhance combat capabilities of military forces by procuring armored vehicles equipped with advanced ammunition handling systems. The integration of ammunition handling systems with a wide range of platforms is acting as a challenge to the growth of the ammunition handling system market.

“Based on mode of operation, the automatic segment is expected to lead the ammunition handling system market during the forecast period.”
Based on mode of operation, the ammunition handling system market has been segmented into automatic and semi-automatic. The automatic segment is expected to lead the ammunition handling system market from 2017 to 2022. Automation in ammunition handling has significantly reduced the load on troops operating combat vehicles. Automated ammunition handling systems offer operational reliability and facilitate automatic handling of rounds. These systems also help enhance the firepower of weapon systems. Ammunition handling systems mounted on a platform protects troops from the direct enemy fire, owing to automated operations of weapon systems.

“The ammunition handling system market in the Asia Pacific region is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.”
The Asia Pacific region is estimated to lead the ammunition handling system market in 2017. Asia Pacific countries such as China, Japan, South Korea, India, and Pakistan have increased their defense expenditure to procure advanced warfare systems for strengthening their combat capabilities. China and India are considered to be major markets for ammunition handling systems in the Asia Pacific region.
