Armor Materials Market

SAAB AB (Sweden) and DSM N.V. (Netherlands) are the Major Players in the Armor Materials Market

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.

DuPont de Nemours, Inc (US), Koninklijke DSM N.V. (Netherlands), Honeywell International Inc. (US), 3M Company (US), Saab AB (Sweden), and Koninklijke Ten Cate BV (Netherlands) are the major players in this market.

In March 2017, it launched further enhancement to its established Kevlar XP and XD technologies for soft armor.

SAAB AB (Sweden) provides materials and services for vehicle armors, aerospace armors, body armors, and civil armors. The company is gaining share in the armors materials market through contracts and agreements. It aims to expand its business in APAC and the Middle East regions by targeting the key markets where the demand for armor materials is high. For instance, in February 2019, SAAb and the Tawazun Economic Council (TEC) signed an agreement for advancing Saab’s operations in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) for supporting and enabling the defense and security sector.
