Visiongain has published a new report on Armour Materials Market Report 2021-2031: By Material (Metals & Alloys, Composites, Ceramics, Fiberglass, Textiles and Fabrics, Aramid Fiber, Ultra-High-Molecular-Weight Polyethylene) By Application (Personal Protection & Body Armor, Vehicular Armor, Aerospace Armor, Marine Armor) By End user (Defense, Homeland Security) and Leading Regional/ Country market analysis.
Global Armor Materials 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 need for enhanced protection to save the soldiers from ballistic attack, growing demand from homeland security due to rise in riots and growing demand from homeland security due to rise in riots. 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 with enhanced armor materials. With the growing need for enhanced protection to save the soldiers from ballistic attacks, it is anticipated that there will be a growing demand of armor materials for developing military body armor and other protective gear.
Homeland security which includes law enforcement is responsible for defending the country from any domestic riots and conflicts. During any internal conflicts or riots, 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 advanced equipment may contribute to the growth of the armor materials 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. With advancement in lightweight and stronger materials for advance combat helmets, it will enable soldiers to move more easily and comfortably. For instance, in 2018, Representatives of the U.S. Army Natick Soldier Research, Development and Engineering Center (Massachusetts, U.S.), developed lightweight combat helmets using para-aramid fibers, and ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) to enhance soldier protection.
COVID-19 Impact on Armor Materials Market
The COVID-19 outbreak has created a huge impact across the globe. Due to this pandemic, there is a possibility that the military expenditure allotted by various government agencies such as the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and U.K. Ministry of Dense may decrease as they will be investing more on developing medical capabilities to tackle the on-going pandemic.
The players operating in the military sector are highly focused in delivering advanced military equipment so as to enhance military operations as well as protect military personnel during missions. Some of the company’s profiled in this report include Honeywell International, Dupont, 3M Company, Compagnie DE Saint-Gobain SA, Koninklijke DSM N.V., Teijin Limited, Saab AB, Alcoa Corporation, Tata Steel and Koninklijke Ten Cate Bv.
• In October 2020, Armor Composite Engineering (ACE) received a contract worth USD 3.2 million from Australia’s Defence Department Innovation Hub to provide curved protective body armour made in the Hunter.
