This SOP article offers an elaborated report on “Ammunition (except Small Arms) Manufacturing”. This industry primarily involved in production and distribution of large ammunition products including rockets, depth charges, grenades, torpedoes, and mines, where army or national security agencies are the primary customers engaged in this industry. Increasing cross border disputes, growing economy in emerging country, rising threats for the nation’s security, technological advancements, expansion of security forces, and globalization these are the major facts which influence the growth of global ammunition manufacturing industry market. Globally, respective country’s government are investing huge on research and development in order to produce enhanced weapons to protect from cross border conflicts and terrorism. Notably, government of United States allocates $611 billion in the year 2017 for producing advanced weapons and comparingly, this is considered as a highest defence budget ever in the world. Industries in United States leads the global ammunition manufacturing industry market in terms producing explosive and enhanced weapons, where they hold a 50% of global revenue share in the industry market. Owing to the increasing expansion of security forces in all countries, the global ammunition (except small arms) manufacturing industry market is projected to attain a massive growth in upcoming forecast period, with a growing CAGR of 4.07%.

Industry Process:

The industry operation starts with designing process, where the ammunition is designed according to the defined standard and size of the missiles. Lead alloy, aluminium, polypropylene, steel, and brass are the major raw materials used in production process. Based on the predefined standard, the cases of the ammunition are manufactured through various metal production process. Lead styphnate is a chemical substance that perform as a gun powder and it gets vary according to the propagation. The proper amount of lead styphnate are inserted inside the cases and then, they are seized tightly with the caps. In order to prevent from corrosion and rust, the ammunitions are undergone for lubricant coating process. Finally, the ammunitions are allowed for various inspection process to ensure its standard and quality, where more than thousands of own products were exposed by the manufacturer as a part of inspection.
