The Silicon Carbide Segment Holds a Significant Share in the Global Ceramic Armour Industry

The silicon carbide segment, based on material, accounts for a significant share in the market. Silicon carbide is light-weight and is manufactured in such a way that that enables custom designed shapes which include detailed and complicated curvatures. Silicon carbide ceramics are ideal for body armour owing to its excellent protection from high-velocity and armour-piercing elements. For instance, Hexoloy® is a silicon carbide-based body armour which weighs 2.5 times less than steel but still exhibits great strength. Hence, the anticipated surge in the demand for silicon carbide based armour is expected to aid the market in the forecast period.

 

North America Accounts for a Significant Share in the Market

The ceramic armour industry in North America is driven by the rising demand for body armours in countries like the United States to enhance the safety of their defence forces such as U.S Navy Seals and Delta Force. In addition to this, the presence of major ceramic armour manufacturing companies in the country is anticipated to bolster the market. Moreover, the increasing territorial disputes globally is likely to boost the demand for ceramic armour in the military and defence sector in order to enhance the capabilities of security forces.

 

Ceramic Armour: Market Segmentation

Ceramic armour is defined as an armour used in armoured vehicles and as a personal armour owing to its attenuative properties to shield a structure or to safeguard a person. The mechanism of ceramic armour involves a ceramic material which prevents the penetration of any foreign object. This factor makes the material fully capable of protecting a structure against any external force. Moreover, the materials used in the manufacturing of ceramic armour include silicon carbide, alumina, and boron carbide, among others.
