Ballistic protection refers to the protection of a body against projectiles of various shapes, sizes, and impact velocities. It is used by soldiers, police, and security personnel in the military, law enforcement, and homeland security sectors to reduce the number of casualties and strengthen the protecting power of these forces. The estimated ballistic protection market is USD 13.4 billion in 2022 and is projected to reach USD 16.9 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 4.7% from 2022 to 2027.
Rising political unrest in emerging economies, need for upgrades in battlefield scenarios, development of lightweight comfortable, high-strength scenarios and demand for protection by VVIPs are key factors driving the ballistic protection market growth. Additionally, rising demand for multi-purpose equipment, increasing demand from Asia-Pacific region and advancements in armor composite materials thereby contributing to the growing demand for ballistic protection products.
