Report Highlights

How big is the body armor market?

The global body armor market is expected to exhibit a growth rate (CAGR) of 5.1% during 2023-2028.

What is body armor?

Body armor, or ballistic armor, is a protective garment designed to shield individuals from various threats, primarily projectiles and other ballistic threats. It is typically worn by military personnel, law enforcement officers, security professionals, and sometimes civilians in high-risk professions or areas. It reduces the risk of injury or fatality in dangerous situations. It is constructed using advanced materials that offer a combination of strength, flexibility, and lightweight properties. The most common materials used in body armor include high-performance fibers like Kevlar, Dyneema, or Twaron and ceramic or metal plates.

These materials are layered or integrated into vests, plates, or full-body suits to protect specific body regions. The level of protection offered by body armor varies depending on the threat level it is designed to withstand. For instance, ballistic vests come in different levels, such as Level IIA, Level II, Level IIIA, and Level IV, each rated to stop specific types of ammunition with varying velocities and energies. In addition to ballistic protection, some body armor designs may incorporate stab or puncture resistance to guard against knife or spike attacks. At present, body armor finds extensive applications in enhancing personal safety for those operating in hazardous environments or facing potentially life-threatening situations across the globe due to its versatility and adaptability.
