The pyrotechnic munitions market size is projected to reach US$ 4,653.96 million by 2028 from US$ 3,358.92 million in 2022; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.6% from 2022 to 2028.

The growth of the pyrotechnic munitions market size in Europe is attributed to many pyrotechnic product manufacturers such as Wescom Group (UK), Rheinmetall AG (Germany), Primetake Ltd (UK), Nexter group KNDS (France), and LACROIX (France). Thus, presence of manufacturing facilities, increasing defense spending for procuring pyrotechnic munition products, and growing instances for rescue operations and critical missions are factors likely to fuel the market growth in Europe during the forecast period. In Europe, major countries such as Russia, the UK, Germany, and Austria have been procuring pyrotechnic munitions for various applications such as live training simulation and crowd control applications. In addition, most countries are taking initiatives to advance their existing military assets, such as Navy vessels, thereby increasing the adoption of life rafts and pyrotechnic munitions across the region.

The demand for pyrotechnic munitions products is increasing with the rising conflicts among countries. With the surge in political conflicts emerges the need for training and drill exercises for armed forces. The growing demand for pyrotechnic markers across defense forces is fueling the market growth. In addition, collaborations of companies with defense forces for live simulation training to supply an adequate volume of pyrotechnic munitions products is another major factor bolstering the market growth. However, certification challenges and counterfeit products restrict the pyrotechnic munitions market growth.

Furthermore, the military exercises organized during the nighttime involve many pyrotechnic illumination and signaling rounds, which are another major factor supporting the adoption of pyrotechnic munition for live training simulation. For instance, in April 2021, the US army conducted a live training in Pulaski Country (Arkansas) wherein two Boeing Chinook Helicopters carried out the military cadets for a 4-day exercise. Under this operation, colored smoke canisters, illumination fire rounds, and other types of pyrotechnic munitions were us.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on North America Pyrotechnic Munitions Market Growth

The COVID-19 outbreak dramatically impacted the global economy during its peak in 2020, along with posing numerous challenges to business operations. It led to considerable disruption in industry supply chains as several countries discontinued their international trade amid the pandemic. Military forces were compelled to work for a social cause. The armed forces joined social activists in their efforts to curb the SARS-CoV-2 spread, which hampered their training activities, leading to either cancellation or postponement. However, with ease in restrictions and the reopening of business units in 2021, the number of military training events increased worldwide, helping the pyrotechnic munition market regain momentum.
