The Ammunition Storage Market size is estimated at USD 2.86 billion in 2024, and is expected to reach USD 3.5 billion by 2029, growing at a CAGR of 4.08% during the forecast period (2024-2029).

Ammunition Storage - Market

The ammunition storage market has been growing steadily in recent years owing to the increasing instances of armed conflict in geographies such as Europe, the Middle East, Asia-Pacific, and North Africa on account of geopolitical rifts and rampant acts of terrorism, and national security agencies. Hence, these global powers are procuring a significant quantity of firearms and ammunition, thereby driving the need for safe storage.

The storage and protection of ammunition for military and law enforcement agencies is a critical aspect of the defense industry, as it plays a crucial role in ensuring that ammunition is readily available for combat operations, training exercises, and homeland security. However, the market players in the ammunition storage industry face challenges due to strict regulations governing safety, security, and environmental protection. Adherence to these regulations can be difficult and expensive.

Ammunition Storage Market Trends

Metal Ammunition Storage to Exhibit the Highest Growth Rate During the Forecast Period

Metal ammunition boxes or crates are used for transporting and storing ammunition of various calibers safely and securely. They are typically made of steel and have a rubber gasket around the lid to protect the ammunition from moisture and air. The primary benefit of steel ammo boxes is being made for military use as they are strong and sturdy. The demand for the metal ammunition storage material segment is driven by rising defense expenditures by various global powers annually, as governments worldwide are putting significant resources towards bolstering their defense capabilities, which include acquiring ammunition and enhancing their ammunition storage facilities and systems. On this note, in 2022 the global military expenditure reached USD 2,240 billion, this was a growth of 6% from the year 2021. Additionally, to cater to the demand driven by metal-type ammunition storage boxes, various OEMs are developing metal ammunition storage boxes for the efficient use of ammunition. For instance, one of the major ammunition storage OEMs in the US Mauser Packaging Solutions has been developing the highest-quality rustproof and leakproof metal boxes designed for military uses including storing ammunition, mortars, grenades, and flares. The company also develops various stronghold boxes that are available in a variety of sizes for storing and transporting ammunition that meets the international requirements of the US DoD, and each box or can is individually tested for air and watertightness. Overall, such developments are anticipated to drive the growth of the segment of the market in focus during the forecast period.

North America to Dominate the Market During the Forecast Period

In North America, the US is one of the leading nations in terms of technological superiority and has a plethora of firearms and other weapons at its disposal to effectively neutralize and subdue hostile forces. For instance, during 2018-2022 nearly 40% of the global arms export was dominated by the US. The US is also an avid buyer of new weapons and ammunition, and this factor drives the demand for ammunition storage market in the region. For instance, in 2022, the country spent USD 2.27 billion on the procurement of ammunition for the US Army. Out of the total procurement, the country procured small-caliber and medium-caliber ammunition at a cost of USD 320 million, while USD 150 million was allocated for the procurement of mortar ammunition and USD 204 million for tank ammunition. Additionally, the US military has deployed its soldiers in more than 150 countries around the world, with several of the military personnel permanently assigned outside the country and its territories, excluding Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria. To support peacekeeping efforts and address geopolitical risks, the United States consistently acquires ammunition, which necessitates the use of different types of secure ammunition storage solutions. Overall, the enhanced capabilities of China and Russia on the battlefield forced the US to increase its investments in advanced weapon systems and ammunition. This in turn creates the demand for the ammunition storage systems in the region.
