The application of polymeric materials in the bullets reduces the weight of the ammunition by more than 40%, the impact of the ammunition is not affected, thus making them lighter and more precise compared to conventional bullets. Growing geopolitical issues, war situations and increasing terrorist activity across the world are leading to increased stockpiling of products by major armies and armed forces. This strategy is likely to offer cost savings as products are purchased in high volume at cheap prices, which in turn also supports market growth.
