Increasing defense budgets in the emerging economies, for instance Asia Pacific is likely to have a significant impact on the product demand, which will help boost the overall ballistic protection materials & equipment market size in the forecast timeframe. Furthermore, increasing terrorism and thereby rising tension between countries across different parts of the globe will also act as a key drivers for ballistic protection market size by materials & equipment in the coming years. Moreover, rising awareness amongst government for active as well as passive safety measures against terror groups to ensure safety and protection of their military, paramilitary and police forces and citizens will help drive the product demand which in turn will make notable impact on the ballistic protection materials & equipment market size in the forecast time period.
 

Stringent regulations laid down by different national and international regulatory agencies against emission of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) is likely to be the key restraining factor, which is anticipated to have a negative impact on the global ballistic protection materials & equipment market size in the near future. Despite stringent regulations against VOC emission, increasing demand for the ballistic materials and equipment across the globe owing to increasing terrorism and rising awareness about the safety of security forces, is expected to drive the global ballistic protection material & equipment market during the forecast period.
 

Ballistic Protection Market, By Material

On the basis of material, the global ballistic protection market by materials & equipment has been segmented into aramid, carbon fiber composites, glass fiber & thermoplastic ceramic and metal, wool and jute amongst the others. Aramid holds the largest market share and accounted for over 35% of the overall revenue generation in 2018, the segment expected to grow with a CAGR close to 5.5% during the forecast timeframe. Aramid is manufactured from the aromatic polyamides and possess excellent properties including light weight, high strength and flexible nature and therefore it is amongst the most preferred material for the ballistic protection of the border security forces. Kevlar, Twaron, Nomex are some of the renowned brands of the aramid used for ballistic protection materials across the globe.
 

Ballistic Protection Market - Materials & Equipment, By Application

Ballistic protection materials & equipment market is widely applicable in defense, homeland security, commercial, etc. Among all these applications, defense captured a volume share close to 40% in ballistic protection market size by materials and equipment in 2018. In defense, several ballistic protective equipment such as protective vest & jacket, helmet, shields, shoes and gloves are widely used for protection against bullets, knifes, fragments of explosive materials, etc. Ballistic plates, panels, and vehicle armors containing ballistic plates or ballistic panels are also used in the defense to protect the tanks, vehicles, check post, and military offices.
 

Ballistic Protection Market, By Equipment

Ballistic materials are used in the manufacturing of different equipment which mainly includes helmets, protective vests & jackets, shields and gloves & shoes among others. Ballistic vests and jackets are made of tightly woven fibers with ballistic plate inserted into it. Among all these equipment, ballistic vests and jackets holds the largest market share and is likely to be the fastest growing segment in the near future owing to its high demand for defense as well homeland security and law enforcement applications.  The aforementioned trends will help attain promising gains to the ballistic protection materials & equipment market size in the forecast spell.
