They also protect personnel from heat, chemical, and biological hazards. The growing geopolitical rifts worldwide, the increase in the number of terrorist threats, and the rising incidence of chemical and biological warfare are major factors that have elevated demand in the global military gas mask market.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global military gas mask market to grow at a CAGR of 4.15% during the period 2017-2021.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Military Gas Mask Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global military gas mask market: 3M, Honeywell International, MSA, and NBC-Sys.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Avon Protection Systems, Jiangsu Anhua Police Equipment Manufacturing, Metadure, and Shalon-Chemical Industries.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in market is development of chlorobutyl skin in gas masks. The masks that are currently used in chemical warfare do not provide complete protection against a variety of toxic agents and gases that are used during battle or terror attacks. Chemical weapons, such as nerve agents, once inhaled, can directly attack the respiratory system of soldiers and may be fatal. Thus, even slight exposure to this contaminated air will pose significant risks to the soldiers.”
According to the report, one driver in market is growing emphasis on soldier safety. Modern-day warfare poses considerable risks for soldiers as weapons increasingly include chemical and biological agents, which can be highly destructive. This new era of war is expected to be one of the major factors that will drive the need for effective soldier protection equipment. The growing security threats due to the rise in number of conflicts, domestic terrorism, and territorial tensions between countries are likely to magnify this form of warfare. The ongoing conflicts such as ISIS terrorism, Indo-Pak war over Kashmir, the Lebanon conflict, the Syrian civil war, and the conflicts between the US and North Korea are just a few examples. Such growing tensions drive the defense agencies to enhance the combat capabilities of armed forces as well as focus on troop protection measures. Chemical weapons have been extensively used in most of the recently waged wars. This has also pushed countries to undertake soldier modernization initiatives that involve the procurement of safety systems and equipment for the troops.
Further, the report states that one challenges in market is soldier protection system budget cuts. North America had the highest share of the market with respect to defense budget; however, sequestration measures in the US are expected to have an adverse impact on the market by 2020. The Budget Control Act passed by the US Congress in 2011 aims to cut $487 billion from the overall military spending over the next 10 years, with an additional sequestration of $495 billion by the government because of short-term fiscal concerns.
