Armor Materials - Global Market Outlook (2017-2023)

Armor Materials - Global Market Outlook (2017-2023)

According Stratistics MRC, the Global Armor Materials Market is accounted for $8.35 billion in 2016 and is expected treach $13.98 billion by 2023 growing at a CAGR of 7.6% during the forecast period. Growing demand for motherland security, technological advancement of weapons, rising security issues and growing terrorism activities across the world are some of the key factors favouring the market growth. However, huge costs of manufacturing and strict government rules are hampering the market.

Armor materials refer tthe materials which are used tstrengthen and upgrade the armor. These armor materials are used in various armors such as helmet, vest, vehicle and others. Several global armor material manufacturers are developing and manufacturing light weight and durable armor materials. These lightweight armor systems are more effective in complex situations.

Ceramic materials have been used successfully in personal armor systems tdefeat small-arms threats. They are preferred for personal armor systems because they are lighter than more traditional armor made of metallic alloys. Ceramic armor can be used tprotect vehicles as well as individual personnel. Ceramics are known tbe some of the hardest materials, and unlike materials such as Kevlar ceramics break the bullet. The strongest and lightest ceramic is boron carbide. The commercially manufactured ceramics for armor include materials such as boron carbide, aluminium oxide, silicon carbide, titanium boride, aluminium nitride, and synthetic diamond composite.

North America captured the largest market share of the Armor Materials market during the forecast period. Asia Pacific is anticipated tgrow at the fastest CAGR due tgrowing security issues and battles among the nations in the region.
