"Increasing commercial application for self-defense or protection, rising political disputes, polarization of civilians leading to civil unrest are major factors driving the armored vehicles market growth globally”
The global armored vehicles market is expected to grow from an estimated USD 23.75 billion in 2016 to USD 31.26 billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 5.6% from 2016 to 2021. The market for armored vehicles is driven by several factors, such as rising number of wars and cross-border disputes, rise in terrorism, and increasing civilian use of armored vehicle for safety and self-defense or protection, globally.

“Active technology segment to witness highest growth during the forecast period”
The key technology considered for the market study is active and passive. The global armored vehicles market is dominated by the active technology segment, during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to the increasing research and development worldwide for the development of advanced armoring technologies, combined with the enhanced reliability and ballistic or blast protection offered by the active technology. Active technology is also witnessing high demand from law enforcement agencies, following the trend of militarization of law enforcement worldwide.

“Europe dominates; Asia-Pacific to grow at the highest rate”
The European region dominates the global armored vehicles market as of 2016, and is expected to continue its dominance during the forecast period of 2016 to 2021. In Europe, Russia is considered to be the largest market for armored vehicles, primarily owing to the technological advancements and rising incidences of armed violence or cross-border disputes in the country.

The market in Asia-Pacific is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This rapid growth can be attributed to the increasing defense expenditure of major economies (China, India, South Korea and Australia), increasing investment for militarization of law enforcement agencies in the region, primarily as part of their modernization program as well as for advanced combat and counter-terrorist operations.
