Global Ballistic Composites Market to Reach US$ 2.1 Billion by 2027, Impelled by Rising Incidences of Border Threats

Published on May 20, 2022

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Ballistic Composites Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global ballistic composites market reached a value of US$ 1.5 Billion in 2021. Ballistic composites refer to high-performance substances that are primarily used in the manufacturing of military devices and armaments that aid in deterring projectiles. Their structure comprises a containment material and a strike face, which are produced from a combination of phenolic resin and glass reinforcement that provide the required stiffness and strength to the composites, which can be further enhanced by altering the resin and fiber types. They are mainly designed in a way to meet various necessities, such as cost restrictions, threat levels and weight requirements. The demand for ballistic composites has increased over the years due to their benefits, including high thermal conductivity and durability and resistance to heat and corrosion.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Ballistic Composites Market Trends:

The global market is primarily driven by the rising incidences of border threats and geographical conflicts. This has encouraged numerous public and private agencies to heavily invest in upgrading the overall defense infrastructure. Along with this, continual technological advancements and the incorporation of advanced technologies across the defense sector for improving the survivability of the fight troops are contributing to the market. Coupled with the increasing demand for lightweight materials that aid in the easy handling of armors, this has provided a boost to the demand for ballistic composites. In line with this, the rising need to minimize carbon dioxide emissions and fuel consumption due to an enhanced focus on sustainable development is significantly supporting the product demand. Furthermore, since they are effective against fragmentation originating from mortars, grenades and artillery, there has been a considerable rise in the adoption of ballistic composites in the manufacturing of defense armors. Other factors, including the expanding defense budgets of numerous countries and extensive research and development (R&D) activities conducted by key players, are also favorably impacting the market growth. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 2.1 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.87% during 2022-2027.
