AMMO INDIA 2018 :International Conference on Military Ammunition

Mar 12 - 13, 2018,FICCI, New Delhi




The Ministry of Defence (MoD) under the Government of India's (GoI) - 'Make in India' initiative is encouraging the industry to engage in the manufacture of ammunition. Currently, under the Arms Rules, 2016, GoI has opened up the ammunition manufacturing to the private sector, which until recently, was open only to the Ordnance Factory Board (OFB) and Defence Public Sector Undertakings (DPSU). This offers tremendous opportunities for the industry to meet the ammunition requirements of our nation.

The Indian private Industry is keen to leverage the opportunity and establish capacities & the capabilities for indigenous ammunition manufacture. Currently, the annual ammunition market size in India exceeds USD 1 billion and there is scope of additional annual capacity of approximately USD 250 million in private sector. Besides, domestic market there is a huge export potential. Ammunition is one of the shortlisted categories for Strategic Partnership. A minimum 10-year order book should help in the creation of a viable business plan, and the necessary investment.

The present policy of ammunition manufacture juxtaposed with the volumes provides unique opportunities to the Private industry to develop the capacity and capability and engage in Joint Ventures with foreign OEMs. As such, several overseas defence companies, are already negotiating with private Indian companies to provide cutting-edge technology for manufacture of multiple ammunition programs.

With the above background and to facilitate 'Make in India' initiative in Ammunition Manufacturing, Federation of Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) in association with Centre for Joint Warfare Studies (CENJOWS) is pleased to announce, "AMMO INDIA 2018" an International Conference on Military Ammunition: Make in India Opportunities and Challenges to be held on March 12 - 13, 2018 at FICCI, Federation House, 1 Tansen Marg, New Delhi.
