Ceramic Armor Market Covers Detail Analysis by Types, Applications and Demanding Opportunities till 2028

Global Ceramic Armor Market to Grow due to Increasing concerns Regarding Safety Gears for Security and Defense Personnel

Military and Security forces worldwide have been forced to adapt to new domestic and international terror threats and to the increased tempo of combat deployments in hostile territory. Vehicles designed for a traditional land conflict are often lightly or inadequately protected from asym-metric threats such as Improvised Explosive Devices (IED’s)  and  Explosively  Formed  Projectiles  (EFP’s)  which are encountered with alarming frequency by troops on operations. National sensitivities to casualties and strained defense budgets force engineers to continually adapt existing vehicle platforms to these constantly changing threats. The challenge to offer the highest level of protection with the lowest possible weight is a constant battle of material science, integration technologies, and physics. Ceramic Armor protects from a  range of threats such as direct gunfire, shaped charges, fragmentation and land mines. Once soldiers  deploy from their protected vehicles they also require lightweight body  protection that allows them to operate freely at elevated temperatures and altitudes carrying a full battle load.

Key Takeaways of the Ceramic Armor Market Study

  1. Alumina is expected to hold major share of the ceramic armor market in the near future. Properties associated with alumina such as high modulus of elasticity and hardness make it a highly attractive material for ceramic armor.
  2. Based on application, the ceramic armor market can be segregated into aircraft, defense, marine, and body. Ceramic armor is largely used for defense purposes.
  3. The defense segment held prominent share of the ceramic armor market. Rise in defense spending in developing and developed countries are propelling the demand for ceramic armor in the defense segment.
  4. Technology advancements in ammunition and weapon systems are also boosting the demand for ceramic armor.
  5. North America held key share of the ceramic armor market. The U.S. is the leading country for ceramic armor. It is likely to remain the dominant country during the forecast period. North America dominates in terms of military and defense sector the world. Rise in investments in the military & defense sector in North America is expected to drive the demand for ceramic armor in the region during the forecast period.

Notable Development Trends to Open up New Horizons of Growth for Ceramic Armor Market

The leading market players focus on product development as well as strategies such as collaboration and partnership with competitors of research institutes or with government support agencies to enhance the market share during the forecast period.

  1. June 18, 2019 – The Air Force Research Laboratory and the Defense Production Act Title III program have been working on this material since 2006 when DPA Title III was improving manufacturing processes to improve the powder that is used to form transparent armor and infrared sensor windows. ALON is a transparent ceramic material composed of aluminum, oxygen and nitrogen. It begins as a powder that is formed into unique shapes and made transparent through the application of high temperature and pressure.
  2. Jul 16, 2019 – Army researchers have devised a method to produce ceramic body armor, lightweight but strong, from a 3D printer. Except that 3D printers are meant to print out knickknacks, not flak jackets — which meant that engineers had to hack into the printer to get the job done.
