What are the global body armor and personal protection market dynamics?

Soldier modernization plans to drive the growth of survivability equipment. Modern warfare, which takes place in densely populated urban areas, is posing challenges of increased injury, forcing defense departments globally to invest significantly in the procurement of ballistic helmets, bulletproof vests, ballistic plates, and night vision systems, hence increasing the demand for body armor and personal protection. The rising number of civilian unrest and political protests worldwide are also the major drivers in the body armor and personal protection market segment.

Apart from the development of various advanced materials, reducing the weight of soldier equipment without compromising protection and combat performance is still a key challenge for the body armor and personal protection industry. Therefore, defense agencies worldwide are focusing on sourcing and integrating the most affordable, lightweight soldier equipment and technology to reduce the burden on personnel. The majority of the armed forces are focusing on the development of lightweight body armor capable of withstanding ballistic attacks and explosive threats. This is expected to drive the adoption of emerging technologies such as graphene, ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE), and carbon nanotube for personal protection. Also, Liquid armor technology is among the new technologies being worked on to provide enhanced ballistic protection and mobility during combat situations.
