Global Advance Combat Helmet (ACH) market was valued at US$ xx billion in 2021 and is projected to reach at a market value of US$ xx billion by 2031. The growth of this market can be attributed to the increasing need for enhanced protection of military personnel, and advancement in lightweight and stronger materials for combat helmets.
Need for enhanced protection to save the soldiers from ballistic attacks
Military personnel face dangerous situations during military operations or mission and have a high risk of being injured from a bullet, a shrapnel and indirect fire. Hence, it is necessary that military personnel use enhanced protective gear such as advance combat helmets, and body armor. For instance, in September 2018, under the Integrated Soldier Systems project, the Australian Defense Force (ADF) procured basic equipment used by soldiers, such as body armor, helmets, hearing and eye protection and load carriage equipment. This project which entails new equipment upgrade will enable the military personnel to meet future threats and fight with enhanced capabilities in challenging situations, while being less detectable and less susceptible to hostile attacks.
Homeland security which includes law enforcement is responsible for defending the country from any domestic riots and conflicts. Law enforcement officers are required to be equipped with advance technology helmets to shield themselves from bullets, flying glass, and gun shots. The potential demand from homeland security for latest technological helmets may contribute to the growth of the ACH market. The protective gear such as ballistic helmets and body armor for military personnel needs to be lightweight so that they do not weigh the soldier down. Lightweight and stronger materials for combat helmets enable soldiers to move more easily and comfortably. Development of such lightweight materials is expected to provide several growth opportunities for the market players in near future.
