Stratview Research has published a new research report on Ballistic Protection Market
- by Product Type (Personal Protective Equipment, and Vehicle Armor)
- by Material Type (Aramid Fiber, Glass Fiber, and Others)
- by Application Type (Defense, Homeland Security, and Fabrics)
- and by Region (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and RoW)
Increasing government spending in strengthening the defense sector
The purpose of the ballistic protection products is to protect soldiers, army vehicles, and homeland security & law enforcement forces from bullets, explosive materials, mortar, mines, electrical shocks, heat, chemicals, and biohazards.
The ballistic protection market offers good growth opportunity and is likely to grow at 4.7% CAGR during the forecast period of 2016 to 2021. Increasing government spending in strengthening the defense sector, increasing conflicts between countries, and rising terrorist & extremist activities are some of the major factors driving the demand of ballistic protection globally.
Soft armor to experience the fastest growth
The ballistic protection market is segmented into two categories; Personal Protective Equipment and Vehicle Armor. Personal protective equipment is further segmented into three categories namely soft armor, hard armor, and protective headgear.
Soft armor is expected to experience the fastest growth over the next five years, driven by increasing demand from defense and law enforcement forces. Government of many countries prefer soft armor that does not have technical challenges including weight.
Major soft armor producing companies are developing advanced soft armor which is lightweight, durable, and more comfortable to the soldiers and law enforcement forces. This supplements companies in winning contracts and gaining competitive advantage over competitors.
Aramid fiber to remain the largest material type in the market
Defense sector is likely to remain the largest application in the ballistic protection market during the forecast period driven by high focus of many governments in strengthening their defense sector due to rising conflicts between countries and with terrorism. Major developed economies, such the US, the UK and France keep on doing R&D for development of advanced ballistic protection equipment for their soldiers, vehicles, and law enforcement forces whereas major developing economies are generating healthy demand of ballistic protection equipment.
For instance, Indian government is on the process of procuring 186 thousands bullet proof jackets for their soldiers. Aramid fiber is expected to remain the largest material type in the ballistic protection market during the forecast period.
Kevlar of DuPont and Twaron of Tejin are the world’s most recognized brands in the ballistic protection market and are extensively used in most of the major applications, such as body armor, helmets, vehicle armor, and tactical vests.
North America to remain the largest market
North America is expected to remain the largest ballistic protection market during the forecast period. High defense spending by the US government, involvement of US military in middle east regions, such as Syria and Iraq, and increasing concern over terror attacks are some of the major drivers of the North American ballistic protection market.
Asia-Pacific is expected to exhibit the fastest growth over the next five years, driven by mainly China and India. China and India, both are strengthening their defense system by continuously increasing government spending.
Both countries are investing heavily on procuring/building advanced weapons and better ballistic protection equipment for their soldiers and law enforcement security forces. The hostile relation between some countries in Asia, such as India, Pakistan, China, and Korea is the major reason behind the high investment on ballistic protection equipment in Asia-Pacific region.
