Armor Materials Market Overview

Armor materials refer to the materials which are used to strengthen 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.

 Market Size and Forecast

Global armor materials market is anticipated to register a CAGR of 7.1% over the forecast period 2017-2024. Additionally, the market of armor materials was held at a valuation of USD 8.9 Billion in 2016 and is expected to reach 13.2 Billion by the end of 2024. This significant growth of the armor materials market can be attributed to rising security concerns. Further, development and manufacturing of advance armor and weapons is expected to strengthen the growth of armor materials market.

Armor materials

In the regional platform, North America is the largest market in the term of market share of overall armor materials market. Further, North America is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The market of armor materials is majorly driven by the rising demand for homeland security. U.S.is expected to contribute significant revenue to global armor materials market during the forecast period. Rising demand for advanced armor system for military applications is likely to drive the growth of armor materials market in the country.

Asia Pacific armor materials market is expected to grow at a significant pace over the forecast period. Further, the market of armor materials in Asia Pacific is projected to grow at highest CAGR during the forecast period.
