Artillery is one of the most basic and ancient weapons used to attack opponents. The first artillery, the siege tower, was invented in 14th century China. Today, artillery is a crucial part of military operations and has been for centuries. It can be divided into two categories: towed guns (field artillery) and self-propelled guns (motorized or self-propelled). This blog post will explore global market share by type of gun in the field artillery category from 2017 until 2028, as well as its application with defense or warfare purposes.

Artillery is a weapon system that fires projectiles at high velocity to produce large kinetic energy. It can be classified as field artillery, self-propelled, or naval and coast defense guns. The projectile fired by the gun travels through the air to reach targets near and far away in battlefields across continents on earth.

Artillery is a key component in combat operations; it punctuates massed infantry charges by bombarding enemy positions with projectiles at high velocity to destroy them rapidly. It also inhibits movement across borders while conducting tactical maneuvers (such as flanking) behind enemy lines. In addition to its primary function in military campaigns, artillery may also be employed for airstrikes against ground targets strategically located within an opportune time window that allows such action without interfering with other functions like mobilizing armies from their bases or preparing defenses along planned attack routes before being attacked themselves.

On the basis of type, the global artillery market is segmented into field artillery, self-propelled, railway gun, and naval coastal guns.

Field Artillery

Field artillery is a type of military weaponry, which in the past was used to fire projectiles at long distances. Field artillery includes light and heavy guns that can be mounted on wheeled or tracked vehicles, as well as unpowered ground systems. The term "guns" refers only to those weapons with a thicker barrel and higher muzzle velocity than other field artillery pieces such as howitzers, mortars, etc.


Self-propelled artillery is armored vehicles, usually either tanks or self-propelled guns that can serve as the prime mover for a conventional gun. Self-propelled artillery is generally considered to be an upgrade of field artillery and motorized artillery. A tank without its main armament could move faster than traditional towed howitzers but still provide significant firepower when needed. Nowadays, most advanced armies use self-propelled howitzers which also makes them much more mobile; it's easier to transport these systems short distances by road rather than over long distances across the country with light railways or other means of transportation such as trucks.

Railway Guns

Railway guns are artillery pieces mounted on railway tracks. The primary purpose of a railroad gun is to engage hard targets like other trains and armor, but they can also be used against buildings or as an anti-aircraft weapon. They were typically employed in the 20th century before tanks became predominant at the start of World War II. A few countries have built railway guns since then for both military and peaceful purposes.

Naval Coastal Guns

Naval coastal guns are artillery pieces designed for use against ships near the coast, as opposed to more inland targets. They often have a shorter range than other types of naval ordnance due to their target proximity requirements and typically lack any sort of explosive capability (although there is some overlap with anti-ship missiles). Coastal artillery has many different names in various countries including field gun or land service battery; seacoast defense or shore-based towers; heavy marine regiment or group. However they may be called, these weapons offer an important role during wartime when enemy fleets might attempt to invade from nearby waterways and so must be well defended.

On the basis of application, the global artillery market is segmented into defense or warfare.


Artillery is used for defense in two ways. It can be set up to defend an area or strongpoint, and it can also support infantry units by providing covering fire when they are out of position. Artillery pieces may include a variety of different types depending on the terrain that needs to be defended: examples include anti-tank weapons, surface-to-air missiles (SAM), mines, mortars, artillery rockets such as multiple rocket launchers (MRLs) which were first developed during World War II and today have been adapted with GPS guidance systems so they no longer need manual aiming at targets but instead require only their coordinates entered into the firing system's computer screen before being fired off.


The application of artillery for warfare is to destroy or disable the enemy's weapons and equipment, including bunkers, tanks, buildings. The purpose of a direct fire weapon like an artillery gun is to attack targets that are close by - they can be used when you cannot use other types of weapons because the area is too constricted (i.e., in urban areas) or because you need to destroy targets that are behind obstacles (such as heavy walls, hills or mountains).

On the basis of region, the global artillery market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa.

In terms of the region in 2017, the global artillery market is led by North America with a revenue share of over 18%. In addition to this growth will be fueled by modernizing defense forces for protection against terrorism.

Europe follows closely behind with a 16% CAGR during the forecast period from 2018-2028 because they have many highly technologically advanced armies such as France and Germany. Countries like Russia are investing heavily into research programs such as Armata T14 which has been designed to enter service in 2020; these investments will help them maintain their position amongst other nations.

The Asia Pacific also shows significant potential due to growing military expenditure across countries such as China and India.

The Middle East and Africa have the lowest share which is attributed to low military spending in this region.

Growth Factors

The global artillery market is driven by the increase in demand from defense and warfare applications. Countries across various regions are upgrading their capabilities to meet emerging security challenges, which has led to a surge in the demand for artillery guns over the last few years. The global rise of terrorism activities has also boosted up the need for military equipment such as field-artillery systems with high precision power. The artillery guns are used to strike targets in a short span of time and resultantly, they have become an essential part of modern-day warfare.

The global increase in demand for military equipment such as field-artillery systems with high precision power is driving the growth of the market. On account of terrorism activities rising around the world, countries across various regions are upgrading their capabilities which have led to a surge in demand for these types of artillery guns over the last few years. This has further bolstered up its importance during wartime scenarios where it can be put into use within short periods by providing accurate fire support at lower costs than other sophisticated weaponry. The introduction of new technologies such as smart ammunition rounds or advanced optical guidance systems will also help propel future growth.
