The global advanced combat helmet market size reached US$ 2.62 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 3.78 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 6.1% during 2023-2028. The escalating adoption of lightweight yet robust combat helmets in military operations, continual technological advancements in military helmets, and an enhanced focus on soldier safety represent some of the key factors driving the market.
Advanced combat helmets (ACHs) are specialty helmets that are designed for defensive combat purposes to enhance a soldier's impact and ballistic protection. Military or homeland security personnel wear advanced combat helmets to protect their heads against threats, such as gun shots, IED explosions, and flammable liquids. In comparison to the older PASGT infantry helmet, the ACHs are lighter and have better features, such as pad suspension and ballistic-resistant hardware at four points, for improved retention. Adjustment slides can be found on both the front and rear retention of the helmets, ensuring a stable and proper fit. The lightweight, high-breaking strength, and flexibility of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene used in these helmets reduce the tactical weight of soldiers on the ground. The advanced combat helmets also include head-mounted lights and night vision cameras to enhance visibility in poor lighting conditions or critical situations. As a result, these helmets provide a lot of advantages, such as improved combat effectiveness, overall survivability and decreased battlefield injury and fatigue.
Advanced Combat Helmet Market Trends:
The rising measures undertaken for counterterrorism activities by various governments to strengthen their defense capabilities is a significant factor driving the market. This can be attributed to the increasing incidences of cross-border terrorist attacks and warfare. In line with this, the rising stringency in government security and safety guidelines to guarantee soldier safety is providing an impetus to the market. Moreover, considerable growth in the defense and military sector resulting in the upgradation of combat assets is also acting as a significant growth-inducing factor for the market. Additionally, continual technological advancements in the manufacturing of military bulletproof helmets, such as the inclusion of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene, reduced structural week-points, fewer metal parts, and uniform protection, are creating lucrative growth opportunities in the market. Besides this, the incorporation of augmented reality (AR) sensors and cameras to provide a 360-degree environmental view through helmet-mounted HUD visors is creating a positive market outlook. Along with this, the growing investments in the development of cost-efficient and high-quality lightweight combat helmets are contributing to the market. Some of the other factors propelling the market include the escalating demand for lightweight combat gear, rising geopolitical tensions, augmenting defense expenditure, and extensive research and development (R&D) activities.
