A composite is a material formed by combining two or more materials of different chemical and/or physical properties. Composite used in ballistic protection are included in the ballistic composites market. The global ballistics composite market is estimated to grow with a CAGR of xx% in terms of revenue. The market is anticipated to grow to $xx million by 2027. The base year considered for the study is 2018, and the estimated period is between 2019 and 2027.

Increasing security concerns in almost all nations, across the world, is a major driving factor for ballistic composites in the defense sector. This, coupled with rising threats from various organizations for countries, such as the United States, India, etc., is further driving the demand for the market in the defense sector. The United States is the largest country, in terms of military spending, and holds the lion’s share across the world. Other countries primarily focusing on military expenditure include China, Saudi Arabia, Russia, India, the United Kingdom, France, etc., and, together, they account for more than half of the global military spending. According to SIPRI, global military spending was valued at USD 1.74 trillion in 2017, with China and the United States accounting for almost xx% of the global spending, and the top 10 countries accounted for almost xx% of the total spending.

Head and face protection show promising trends in the ballistic composites market. Head protection holds prime importance during the military conflict and certain law enforcement and peace-keeping situations. Head protection in such a situation is desirable at the lowest weight, with maximum protection against a wide variety of bullets and fragments. Aramid fibers are primarily used for the preparation of helmets used in the aerospace and defense sector. However, helmets based on UHMWPE are also gaining significant importance in the recent period. Helmets get replaced relatively very often, when compared to the body and vehicle armor, and this is the driving factor for the ballistic composites market. Head and neck almost cover 12% of the body area and are more prone to be hit during any attacks, thus, boosting the demand for lightweight and strong materials. This, coupled with a shift from steel to lightweight helmets, is also boosting the demand for ballistic materials.

There are various complications in designing ballistics composites. For example, some vests tend to lose their ballistic performance in wet conditions, because water proves as a lubricant, and makes the build material of vest weak, breakable/tearable and susceptible to bullet penetration. Certain manufacturers try to cover this flaw by using waterproof materials in the vests. When the ballistic panel sags, the vest becomes highly uncomfortable to wear. Few body vests come with rotatable carriers that ensure the long-life of the product, whereas others are damaged easily because the velcro straps wear out and the fabric gets old, thus, forms a restraining factor for the market.

The report on the global ballistics composites market includes segmentation based on fiber type, matrix type, application and region.

Market by Matrix Type

  • Polymer-ceramic
  • Metal
  • Polymer

Market by Fiber Type

  • Ultra-High-Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE)
  • S-glass
  • Aramids
  • Other fiber types

Market by Application

  • Vehicle armor
  • Helmets and face protection
  • Body armor
  • Other applications

Geographically, the global ballistics composites market has been segmented on the basis of four major regions, which includes:

  • North America: the United States & Canada
  • Europe: United Kingdom, Germany, France, Spain, Italy & Rest of Europe
  • Asia Pacific: China, India, Japan, Australia, South Korea & Rest of Asia Pacific
  • Rest of World: Latin America, Middle East & Africa

Various countries in the Asia Pacific region are a victim to the threat of terrorist attacks, where radical individuals and groups were showing support for the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and allowing the flow of foreign terrorist fighters to and from Iraq and Syria. The governments of China and India have issued stringent legal frameworks and are focusing more on critical information sharing and increased regional cooperation for fighting international crime and terrorism. Such political turmoil is anticipated to disrupt the inter-nation harmony and prove a reason to trigger wars or riots. Ballistic composite manufacturers thus pose proximity towards new product development (NPD), which would cater to the requirement of changing situations. Hence, these factors will enhance the demand for ballistic composite in the region.

The global ballistics composite market is segmented into fiber type, matrix type, application. Fiber type is further sub-segmented into ultra-high-molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE), aramids, S-glass and other fiber types. Matrix type is segmented into metal, polymer-ceramic and polymer. The application segment includes helmets and face protection, vehicle armor, body armor & other applications.
