Armor Materials Market: an Overview
Armor materials are used as protective covering, especially designed to prevent damage to inner surface of object to be protected from any external force or damage. Generally, armor materials are used in military purpose mainly during war and combats. Body armor are common type of armored system, wore by army men during the wars. These are intended to prevent damage from any projectile damage by incoming bullets and other ballistics objects. Similarly, armored vehicle, invisible to damage by bullets can easily sustain heavy damages in extreme combat situation. Thus, military application are key hotspots for armor materials. Global armor materials market is thus anticipated to witness heavy growth with a higher single digit CAGR during forecast period. Furthermore, demand for armor materials would be continuous for high powers in defense systems such as Russia and US, due to continuous investment in strengthening defense system.
Armor Materials Market: Dynamics
Terrorism around the world has led to an increasing number of workforce in defense activities. For incorporating proper defense and security of people, government bodies have improved spending in strengthening ammunition system. For this purpose, several countries have been investing in design and manufacturing of giant military equipment such as battle tanks and submarines, which raised demand for armor materials during its construction and fabrication. Thus, to eradicate global issue of terrorism, military services are funded by government, which involves funding and financial supports to all players involved in providing these military equipment. However, global consumption of armor materials are considered sensitive, as it directly effects the security system of a country. Therefore, the production and consumption of armor materials are subjected to strict regulations form government agencies to fortify and protect the supply & value chain for materials.
