Body Armor and Personal Protection Market Dynamics

Besides conventional warfare application by the armed forces, the law enforcement agencies across the world are also acquiring advanced body armor and personal protection equipment to counter internal security threats, such as terrorism, insurgency, and various other organized crimes. Moreover, the demand for body armor and personal protection equipment is anticipated to be driven by the soldier modernization and combat capability enhancement initiatives undertaken by the key defense spending countries such as the United States, Russia, the United Kingdom, Germany, and France.

However, the weight reduction of body armor continues to be a key challenge as it requires several layers of protection to mitigate the risk of the ever-increasing destructive capability of ballistic threats. Furthermore, the modernization of soldier systems to protect and empower the soldier has resulted in an exponential increase in the total weight being carried.
