The global military body armour & personal protective equipment (PPE) market was valued at US$xx million in 2021 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of xx% during the forecast period 2022-2032.
9 June 2021, The United States military is gradually but steadily transitioning to body armour that is comfortable for both men and women, allowing soldiers, sailors, Marines, and airmen of all sorts to wear gear that is more gender appropriate. The armed services are expanding the variety of body armour sizes available to meet the demands of the personnel, from headgear for individuals with longer hair to armour that allows for quicker bladder relieve. Better-fitting body armour for female and small-statured military members has long been a goal of the Defense Department. A measure was submitted in Congress by female veterans to push the issue. DOD chiefs informed Congress that they already had the blueprints and the funding to begin manufacturing the equipment, but the Army has sought an additional $81 million to speed the programme by three years.
Injuries And Chronic Back Pain Due To Body Armour
Musculoskeletal injuries are frequent among military personnel. 28–61 percent of Nordic troops report musculoskeletal illnesses or injuries during basic training. Acute traumas can cause certain injuries, but overuse is the most prevalent cause. The external weight of the equipment carried by troops may exceed the physiological tolerance threshold of the tissues, resulting in load-related musculoskeletal problems and injuries. Ongoing complaints and injuries have also been demonstrated to impair soldiers' capacity to function and, in the long run, may develop to a chronic condition, i.e. chronic pain. According to a Swedish assessment, Swedish rifle troops carry 39 kg of battle gear, machine gun soldiers 49.6 kg, and radio operators 60.5 kg. Uniform, boots, gloves, ballistic eyewear, helmet, night vision goggles, body armour system, weapons, ammo, tactical load vest, first aid kit, but no bag are included. found identical combat gear in US soldiers, weighing 46.3 kg.
How has COVID-19 had a significant negative impact on the Military Body Armour & Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Market?
In all industries worldwide, COVID affected supply chains. The military industry is often resilient to global commercial shocks, although cushion defense characteristics have faded in recent years. Although it is still too early to predict precisely whether the industry is flat, shrinking or growing unaffected by the global pandemic, it is very important that defense companies identify what the major impact points are and assess the potential of defense undertakings to influence business plans, supply chains and the underlying lines. This will help to form steps to prevent the storm from happening to companies. Supply side shocks may be one of the most obvious outcomes of the defense pandemic. The initial victims of this pandemic are companies which are based in nations that are hardly touched by the virus or are dependent on supply chains in the countries concerned.
The supplier chain and resource patterns of DTIB will also effect the production, since supply side limitations are more likely to be facing production waits with branching supply networks. The European DTIB has a fair number of branching supply chains with a final platform or solution of multiple components and subsystems from different suppliers.

What are the current market drivers?
High Demand of Military PPE For Safety and Security in Combat Operation to Boost Growth
Military personnel must be able to function in a wide range of operational conditions successfully, safely, and securely. A complete protection model combines military protection, mission objectives, and cost-effectiveness. Furthermore, must consider providing physical protection in order to reduce injuries, loss of life, and material damage by recognising dangers ahead of time. The quality of life of injured troops participating in armed occurrences, such as IED assaults, is critical. Military systems, such as vehicles, ships, or airframes, should give the highest level of survivability and protection. Aside from passive defence, the military should employ weapon systems that are precise, effective, and give proportional harmful effects to the opponent while causing the least amount of collateral damage. Furthermore, new weapon systems such as hypersonic threats and high-energy lasers are projected to appear on the battlefield in the coming decade, which must be neutralised.
Growing Demand for Covert Armor against Extreme Threats and High-Risk Situations
Even the highest layers of armour are accessible in hidden forms, allowing severe dangers to be countered in a discrete manner. Modern security personnel must fulfil several responsibilities and may be placed in high-risk situations. While covert armour can defend against extreme dangers, there are times when a display of power is favoured above secrecy, and selecting overt armour worn over the clothing can communicate to potential assailants that you are ready and eager to combat threats.
Where are the market opportunities?
High-Tech Protection –Armour Innovation
The requirement to defend warfighters from gunshots and knife assaults has resulted in an increase in ballistic and tactical protection. Army-technology.com went to the worldwide military expo DSEi to learn about the materials, such as Kevlar and merino wool, as well as the unique concepts behind some of today's top ballistic and tactical vests. Body armour for infantry troops has grown so specialised that purpose-designed protection is now available for practically every individual body component, employing the most cutting-edge contemporary materials to guarantee it meets the most strict military criteria. how some of the greatest new advancements may be used to securely outfit a future infantry soldier from head to toe. The expansion of battlefield hazards, such as the employment of shrapnel in improvised explosive devices or bone-breaking batons in hand-to-hand fighting, has resulted in a new wave of forward-thinking body armour and tactical ballistic vest protection.
Bullet-Proof, Stab And Spike Protective Vests In High Demand
Produced by Glagio Do Brasil (GDB), the Spike vest utilises Dupont Kevlar technology to protect users not only from bullets, but also from stab and spike attacks. The vest itself is made from Aramid and achieves NIJ Type II Ballistic and Spike protection, offering an areal density of 1.16lbs per square feet. GDB can also cater for warfighter operational requirements by providing a lightweight helmet capable of NIJ Type IIIA protection, vital at a time when the carry weight of a soldier’s equipment is spiraling. GDB’s Personal Armor System ground troops (PASGT) helmets are constructed using several layers of Aramid synthetic fibers, with Type IIIA protection weighing just 1.4kg and Type II protection just 1.1kg.
