Published: Oct 2017 | Report Code: 58742-10-17

The importance of body armor can be understood from the fact that it helps to protect personnel by acting as a shield against weapon attacks. Historically, its use was mostly limited to the military sector, but nowadays it is often used by the police, security guards and civilians as well. Economic and technological necessities of armor production is one of the most significant factors which has affected the development of body armors. The development of body armor and effective weaponry has gone hand–on-hand, with an advancement in one resulting in the advancement of the other as well. Considering the increasing instances of riots and violence, body armors are growing in popularity day by day.

Implementation of soldier modernization programs across various countries is one of the most important factors driving the body armor market growth. Body armors addressing futuristic requirements such as sustainability, survivability, lethality and mobility are in demand and have been an area of focus for the body armor manufacturers. Increase in terrorist attacks is another important factor which has contributed to the growing demand for body armors. There has been a rise of jihadist movements across various countries and the terrorist organizations are constantly carrying on country-wide attacks against the government. In order to counter these attacks, there arises a need to deploy army and law enforcement forces with proper body armor shields. This further acts as a demand propeller for the body armor market.

On the basis of product type, the global body armor market is segmented into the following categories:

  • Type I
  • Type II-A
  • Type II
  • Type III-A
  • Type III
  • Type IV

Their contribution to the global body armor market in 2016 is as shown in the figure below:

Body Armor Market

As of 2016, the overall body armor market is led by the Type IV segment. The segment contributes to more than one fourth of the total market revenue, as of 2016. Type III and Type III-A follows the Type IV segment, in terms of revenue. The Type IV segment growth is primarily attributed to its wide adoption by militaries across the world considering that they provide the highest levels of protection amongst all the other product types. It is capable of providing protection against 30 caliber armor piercing bullets along with single-hit protection from the type I, type II-A, type II, and type III threat. 

During the forecast period, the demand for type II-A body armors is expected to be high as a result of its increasing adoption in the area of law enforcement. It is one of the most popular body armors among the police personnel. The type II-A body armor claims protection against the 40 Smith & Wesson (S&W) ammunition. Moreover, police modernization programs is also acting as a driving factor for the growth of the type II-A body armor segment.

Based on the geography, the global body armor market is segmented as per following regions and countries:

  • North America
    • U.S.
    • Canada
  • Europe
    • U.K.
    • Germany
    • France
    • Rest of Europe
  • Asia Pacific
    • Japan
    • China
    • South Asia
    • Rest of Asia Pacific
  • Rest of the World (RoW)
    • Middle East & Africa (MEA)
    • Latin America

Body Armor Market

The global body armor market is dominated by the North America region. As of 2016, the region accounts for more than forty five percent of the overall market revenue generated worldwide. The body armor market here is majorly attributed to the various initiatives revolving around police and soldier modernization. Moreover, the large size of the U.S. army is also responsible for North America being the largest market for body armors. Some of the largest body armor manufacturing companies such as Point Blank Enterprises, Inc., Safariland, LLC and Honeywell International Inc. are headquartered in the region, thereby supporting the market growth here. 

The presence of a large number of countries in Europe with advanced militarily and law enforcement makes it an important market for body armor. Europe follows North America, in terms of revenue in the market. The market here is primarily governed by the increased focus to modernize the soldier and law enforcement safety equipment. Moreover, growing terrorist threat concerns coupled with the immigration issue being faced across various countries is also fuelling the demand for body armors in the region.
