In terms of value, the armor materials market size is projected to reach USD 15.2 billion by 2024 from USD 10.7 billion in 2019, at a CAGR of 7.2%. The growth of the market can be attributed to the increasing incidences of armed conflicts, rising tension between neighboring countries, and growing instances of terrorism across the globe. The Middle East and Asia Pacific regions have been identified to be the high-potential markets for armor materials, owing to the increasing asymmetric warfare activities in these regions in recent years. The market in other regions, including North America and Europe, is also witnessing significant growth due to ongoing programs for the modernization and upgradation of existing armored platforms to enhance the combat capabilities of defense forces.
