The global bulletproof helmet market size reached US$ 1,009.4 Million in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 1,416.5 Million by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 5.7% during 2023-2028. The rising prevalence of cross-order breaches, internal issues, and insurgencies, a considerable rise in the defense budget for the upgradation of military weaponry and war assets, and the increasing use of lightweight materials in the manufacturing of bulletproof helmets represent some of the key factors driving the market.
Bulletproof helmets, also known as ballistic helmets, refers to military helmets designed to protect the head from shrapnel, bullets, and fragmented particles during combat. Bulletproof helmets are essential for all armed forces and police personnel, who use them for protection against potentially hazardous elements, particularly ballistic threats, and fragments and airborne flying particles. In addition to being compatible with existing NVG guns and communications, these bullet-resistant helmets can also be fitted with nuclear, biological, and chemical defense equipment. Bulletproof helmets often are made from ballistic materials like kevlar and twaron, which provide enhanced protection against extreme temperatures, fires, water, moisture, and ultraviolet light (UV). For enhanced retention, these helmets are equipped with pad suspension, adjustment slides, and impact-resistant hardware. High-breaking strength and robust materials provide enhanced protection from gunshots, as well as enhanced combat effectiveness and survivability, along with decreased injury rates on the battlefield.
Bulletproof Helmet Market Trends:
The rising number of security measures undertaken for counterterrorism activities by various governments is a significant factor driving the market. This can be attributed to the rising prevalence of cross-order breaches, internal issues, and insurgencies across the globe. In line with this, an enhanced focus on the protection of soldiers and law enforcement officers from head injuries caused by bullets and sharp weapons is positively impacting the market. Moreover, the rise in the defense budget for the upgradation of military weaponry and war assets is resulting in a higher product uptake. Additionally, the increasing use of lightweight materials, such as aramid fibers and polymers, by manufacturers for enhancing armor system efficiency is providing an impetus to the market. Besides this, continual product innovations, such as the use of nanotechnology, augmented reality (AR) sensors and cameras, and helmet-mounted HUD visors, are creating lucrative growth opportunities in the market. The market is further propelled by the expansion of national military bases, increasing weapon testing activities, and the growing military modernization practices on the global level. Some of the other factors creating a positive market outlook include the augmenting geopolitical tensions, growing awareness regarding soldier protection, numerous technological advancements, and extensive research and development (R&D) activities conducted by key players.
