Increasing military budget in developing countries, growing terrorism activities, rising warlike situations, and rising geopolitical disputes & conflicts among neighboring countries are some of the major factors that drive the guided ammunition market. However, formulation & stringent implementations of gun control legislation are hampering the market growth. On the contrary, development of lightweight ammunition and increasing research & development to develop advance ammunition will contribute further in the growth of the global guided ammunition market.
