Market Dynamics

Driver: Increased terrorist activity and rising usage of lightweight composite materials

Due to border disputes and a rise in terrorist attacks, armed services must purchase ballistic equipment to safeguard the security of military personnel. Composite ballistic protection armor is lighter than metal ballistic protection armor. Composite armor is stronger than other types of ballistic protection armor despite being more expensive. Government laws and policies have established who is responsible for dangerous incidents and occurrences at locations. As a result, it became crucial to establish personal protection gear and attire as the norm and standard in the field.

Restraint: High costs

The bulky weight and high price of ballistic armor are two crucial factors that are anticipated to restrain the growth of the global market.

Opportunity: Technological development

Flexible, lightweight, and thin protective gear has become possible because of technological advancements in ballistic protective equipment. Recent advancements in raw materials, such as ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) in ballistic products, are also expected to boost the global market for ballistic protective equipment. Manufacturers are compelled to make their ballistic items lighter by employing better raw materials and developing breathable armor as the market for lightweight equipment expands. For those working in this field, this is anticipated to create new investment opportunities.

Challenge: The infrastructure for manufacturing is related to a high primary rate

The high primary rate associated with manufacturing infrastructure is expected to challenge the market for ballistic protective equipment.
