Metals & alloys continue to dominate the market

Metals & alloys are the most widely used types of armor materials because of their low cost and application in large-area protection. Metals & alloys are primarily used for vehicle armor and civil armor applications. High density steel, aluminum, and titanium are the most widely used metals for armor materials. Development of advanced ceramic & composite armor materials, which are lightweight and more effective, are projected to witness the highest growth between 2015 and 2020.

Vehicle armor: Leading application for armor materials

Vehicle armor accounted for the largest share in the armor materials market owing to the high mobility of units, which increases the threat levels. This has increased the need for advanced armors for such units, as the battlefield scenario has changed to urban and asymmetric warfare. Development of powerful weapons and ammunition has compelled armor material manufacturers to develop more efficient armor materials, which provide higher level of ballistic protection while reducing overall weight of the armor. Ceramic & composite materials are increasingly being used for vehicle, aerospace, and body armor applications to reduce weight and increase the effectiveness of the armor system.
