The global body armor market exhibited moderate growth during 2015-2020. Body armor is protective clothing worn by soldiers for safeguarding themselves against penetrative threats on the battlefield. It is also used by law enforcement personnel as safety equipment from assaults and attacks using knives, shell fragments, and high-velocity bullets. Presently, the rising terrorism threat, the use of powerful personal weapons by criminals, and the growing focus on border security by governing agencies of several countries are escalating the demand for body armor to provide ballistic protection. Consequently, several manufacturers are incorporating advanced synthetic fibers to develop lightweight, flexible, and covert products for better wearer protection.
As security agencies worldwide are increasing their defense budgets, military forces are incorporating modern protective gear in combat environments. This represents one of the major factors resulting in the rising demand for lightweight, high-tech body armors. Ceramic-based body armors are also used to protect the heart against high-velocity rifle ammunition. Additionally, manufacturers are developing high-performance and reduced-weight bodysuits using ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE). These suits are gaining preference among companies and other non-combatants for private security. Moreover, with the advent of three-dimensional (3D) design techniques, the leading players are offering customization services. They are combining advanced engineering with high-quality materials to produce state-of-the-art body armor. Apart from this, the demand for body armor is escalating in mental healthcare facilities to improve the safety of healthcare workers from patient violence and aggression. Furthermore, as they provide additional protection during car accidents, the demand for body armor is anticipated to rise across the globe. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global body armor market to grow at a CAGR of around 3% during the forecast period (2021-2026).
