Over the past decade, the firearms and ammunition industries have greatly expanded, mainly to meet customer demands for these products. More and more, civilians and military personnel alike are becoming more interested in firearms and thus production for ammunition has driven up as a result. Manufacturers in these industries now also have a higher demand to meet and thus need the best equipment possible for parts finishing to help create quality products. We at Mikro Industrial Finishing understand the market trends in the firearms and ammunitions industries and can help all do just that.
Over the past four years in particular, although it has been a slower trend before that, the market demand has focused primarily on small-caliber ammunition. The main speculated reason for this is a rise in shooting-related sports and hunting for sport. Typically the guns used in these activities use small-caliber bullets, so production on those has increased across the board. Additionally, many individuals seeking to carry firearms require small-caliber ammunition as well, a trend that has increased in recent years as well.
None of this is to say that larger caliber ammunition is on the decline. More powerful ammunition has indeed been on the increase as well, just at a much slower rate and in different sectors. Unsurprisingly, as military spending and defense sector demands increase, the production of these items has increased as well, though sales are largely composed of military outlets.
What exactly do these trends mean for manufacturers of firearms and ammunition? Obviously it means that production demands are greater than ever before, but it also means that the focus on and competition for quality products is greater as well. When creating ammunition and firearms parts, they must be precise and must be turned out quickly. In order to ensure speed and accuracy, a well-defined finishing process must be in place and must be consistently efficient. That is where Mikro comes in.
