Region : Global | Report ID: FBI102308 | Status : Ongoing



Armor Materials are the specialty materials that have the ability to deflect or absorb the impact of projectiles. A variety of armor materials exist in the market and manufacturers are competing fiercely to develop durable and lightweight armor materials. Lightweight and effective armor materials are of high importance as it enables military personnel to carry extra ammunition or other beneficiary equipment with them.     

There has been a continuous increase in military and security expenditures across the world on the back of increased safety concerns. Political uncertainty along with internal conflicts in the developing countries has resulted in increased consumption of armor materials for security personnel. Regional conflicts around the world such as India-Pakistan is also fuelling the demand for armor materials. Moreover, terrorist activities are on the rise around the world, which has raised concerns for safety. Governments are spending heavily on the security of their nationals as well as peace-keepers.

Key Market Driver -

Increasing expenditure on military and security across the globe.

Key Market Restraint -

Government regulations on sales and manufacturing.
