The impact of COVID-19:
As the COVID-19 crisis unfolds, the market is taking a heavy hit. The demands from many parts of the world fell and the possibility of exporting products became limited. There is a disparity in demand between regions. Sales of firearms and ammunition have increased in countries like the United States and Canada, but in other parts of the world demand has fallen sharply. North American companies are thus trying to cater to customers in their own region rather than focusing on product exports. In this way, they try to generate as much income as possible and try to build up cash reserves, which can provide them with huge benefits in the future. In the midst of this crisis, the major market players are trying to use their resources carefully and focus on the safety of their employees, suppliers, distributors and other business partners. They are aimed at reducing costs as demand is expected to remain subdued for some time even after this crisis as the priorities of countries around the world are sure to change. The sale of ammunition products almost came to a halt in the midst of this crisis.

The main participants are Nammo AS, Northrop Grumman, Rheinmetall Defense, Nexter Group, RUAG Holding AG, Fiocchi Munizioni SpA, Prvi Partizan AD, Companhia Brasileira de Cartuchos, Hornady Manufacturing Company Inc. and General Dynamics Corporation.
