Global Armour Materials Market to Reach USD 15.1 Million by 2027, Aided by the Increasing Security Concerns

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global Armour Materials Market Report and Forecast 2022-2027’, the global armour materials industry reached a value of about USD 10.9 million in 2021. The industry is further expected to grow at a CAGR of about 5.52% in the forecast period of 2022-2027 to reach a value of around USD 15.1 million by 2027.

Rising political unrest, instability, and incidences of terrorism worldwide have prompted military and law enforcement forces and the materials science community to develop effective solutions to ensure security, increasing the need for advanced armours. Domestic conflicts in many countries have been boosting the market for ammunition to ensure national security. This is driving the demand for protective equipment. The increasing adoption of new technologies and modernization of the defence sector in developed and developing economies is also propelling the growth of the global market. The growing need for protective gears to protect from advanced weapons and ammunitions is also expected to boost the growth of the global market over the forecast period. The development of cost-effective, lightweight armour can create higher revenue opportunities for players in the target market. Growing preference for lightweight armour materials such as Kevlar aramid fibres and ceramics materials over conventional steel metal alloys will further enhance the market growth. The growth of the global market can also be attributed to the increasing demand for vehicle, marine, and aircraft protection applications.

Several companies are involved in developing materials used in body armours. The companies compete aggressively to produce the lightest and most robust materials possible for mergers, acquisitions, and partnerships. For instance, in January 2020, Avon Rubber (LON: AVON), the U.K. based military technology provider, announced their acquisition of 3M Company (NYSE: MMM). This will give them an edge in body armour, ballistic helmets, flat armour, and related helmet-attachment products.
