Armor Materials Market Segment Insights:


Ceramic products segment is projected to hold a significant share of the market
Based on types, the global armor materials market is projected to be segmented into metals & alloys, ceramics, composites, Para-Aramid fibers, UHMWPE, and fiberglass. The ceramics segment is anticipated to expand at a high CAGR during the forecast period due to their high performance and light weight. Ceramic-metal composites, tungsten carbide, and silicon carbide are widely used products. These products have a broad application and are used to produce armors for military personnel, gunships, land vehicles, and aircraft. These products, while being relatively light in weight, have the ability to offer high hardness and controlled micro-structures that ensure durability and performance. Furthermore, ceramics provide design flexibility and high resistance to stress. These factors are expected to boost the segment growth during the forecast period.

Vehicle segment holds substantial share
In terms of applications, the market is expected to be segregated into vehicle, aerospace, body, civil, and marine. The vehicle segment accounts for a dominant share of the market on account of rising concerns regarding the security of government officials and reporters. Additionally, increasing application of lightweight aluminum alloys in military vehicles such as personal carriers are fuelling the growth of the market.

North America dominates the global armor materials market
On the basis of regions, the global armor materials market is likely to be classified as Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America holds a significant share of the market. The US is expected to constitute a key share of the market due to high military investments that are higher than every other country. Rising demand for applications regarding homeland security, development of advanced armor materials and making of systems for vehicles & aerospace are factors that can be attributed to the growth of the market in the U.S. Additionally, in the U.S., the Berry Amendment Act encourages the use of domestically manufactured products, comprising of armor materials, including fiber and steel; thereby, reinforcing the growth of the market in North America.
