Author : Rahul Varpe | Published Date : 2019-04-01 

Based on materials, armor materials market is segmented into composite fabrics, para-aramid fibers, UHMWPE, ceramics, fiberglass and other armor materials. UHMWPE is a subcategory of thermoplastic polyethylene. The material has long chemical chains that makes it a sturdy material with high impact strength. It possesses excellent abrasion resistance property. UHMWPE rifle protection plates are one of the most lightweight rifle plates present in the market. These plates stop almost 6 rounds of 7.62 x 51, 7.62 x 39 and 5.56 full metal jacket bullets. It provides high ballistic resistance and durable performance which will augment the armor material market in the near future.

According to its applications, the armor materials market is divided into body armor, vehicle armor, civil armor, aerospace armor and marine armor. Vehicle armors are protection materials used externally to safeguard the vehicle from any mishappenings. These armors are applied in various sorts of vehicles used by the military, reporters, government officials, VIPs etc. The presidential limousine for the U.S. president (Cadillac One) is a perfect example for the same. It consists of bulletproof glass, run flat tires, night vision, armored fuel tank and many other defensive properties. The growth in counter terrorism security measures will boost the protection materials market.

Armor Materials Market size is expected to grow with a considerable CAGR during the projected timeperiod due to the increasing focus on the survivability of the soldiers in various defense organizations. The lack of ballistic protection and continuous rise in modern artillery technologies and equipments will surely augment the market for protection materials. Armors are basically of two types i.e. personal armor, used to protect soldiers & war animals and vehicle armor, used on warships and armored fighting vehicles.

Even transporting defense personnels or any crucial merchandise require armored vehicles for the safe travel to the destination. Many new protective materials have been introduced to make the armor lightweight and impenetrable. The Future Integrated Soldier Technology (or FIST), a project by British Army is likely to drive the armor materials market. The aim is to improve the regiment’s battle effectiveness by integrating a soldier with all kinds of modern equipments, weapons, sighting systems and defense materials.
