[198 Pages Report] The Armor Materials Market size was estimated at USD 15.75 billion in 2023 and expected to reach USD 16.91 billion in 2024, at a CAGR 7.65% to reach USD 26.40 billion by 2030.

Armor materials are utilized as protective clothing against any influence of projectiles or other weapons. Advanced ceramics are broadly used to produce lightweight body armors that are efficient against bullets. The armor is made of advanced fiber known to absorb the impact of bullets by dispersing the energy across a large area of the armor. The rising need for lightweight armor material, increasing demand for armor materials in aerospace, military vehicles, and marine armor systems, and government investments are escalating the adoption of the armor materials market. The advancement of lethal ammunition and weapons is further estimated to cushion the growth of the armor materials market. However, fluctuating prices of raw materials and concerns related to body armor mechanics and design may limit the market adoption by the end-user sector. In addition, the military modernization programs further provide potential opportunities for the growth of the armor materials market in the future.
