The global Advanced Combat Helmet Market is anticipated to reach an extent of USD 3.0 billion by the end of the assessment period. The market is estimated to experience a reasonable growth rate of 10.1% throughout the estimated period (2021-2026).
Combat helmets have been around for several decades. In the 1960s, DuPont developed aramid fibers, and this class of synthetic fiber material was heat resistant and strong and was advertised under the Kevlar trade name. This resulted in the production of Kevlar helmets by the United States government. These helmets were used by defense personnel form 1980s to the mid-2000 and are even now used by some defense services. The Advanced Combat Helmets are increasingly being used by army from the mid-2000s. However, the United States Department of Defense is continually investing in research and development to improve helmet performance using high-quality materials and an efficient design while improving the helmet manufacturing process. The newly improved combat helmet, a new helmet version, and an improvement over the advanced combat helmet are likely to replace the advanced combat helmet in the near future.
The Robert Morris Acquisition Center of the US Army ordered for 3 units of the advanced combat helmets that value about $ 63.2 million, as part of $ 270.7 million in contracts.
In March 2017, the military awarded a contract for a helmet that weighs an average 22% less than the one currently in use but offers the same protection, according to officials. The Advanced Combat Helmet Generation II contract was awarded to Revision Military in Vermont to develop and deliver $ 98 million worth helmets in the next five years.
ArmorSource LLC announced that it has successfully completed the First Item Test (FAT) for the US Army Advanced Light Combat Helmet. USA, with deliveries scheduled for spring 2016.
MSA announced that it has obtained a $ 45 million two-year indefinite quantity/delivery (IDIQ) contract from the Philadelphia Defense Supply Center (DSCP) to supply advanced combat helmets to the US Army. USA Headphone delivery will begin in the third quarter of 2009, pending testing and certification of the first item.
Market Drivers and Restraints:
The market for advanced combat helmets is largely driven by the growing need for governments and defence agencies to provide better standards of security for soldiers and tactical combat advantage in the face of increasing threats to global security, such as the terrorist attacks, border insurgencies and internal conflicts. The defence sector enormously approves advanced combat helmets to defend law enforcement and soldier officers from skull injuries from shell shrapnel, IED explosions, and gunshots. Furthermore, the demand for integrated headsets with the best vision and communication technologies is also increasing. Features such as night vision cameras to improve sight in the dark or difficult situations are having more demand. Escalating government requirements to verify soldiers' safety and fight terrorist attacks and insurgency will fuel the growth of the advanced combat helmet industry in the coming years. In addition to this, violations of crusader orders, internal problems and riots or insurgencies in the country are expected to proliferate worldwide. Furthermore, the massive demand for products by law enforcement agencies and the massive need to protect soldiers from head injuries from explosions and IEDs should define the growth of the advanced combat helmets in the planned years.
According to the applications, the market for advanced combat helmets could be segmented into law enforcement agencies, military and defence agencies. The military and defence segment is the significant contributor to the global advanced combat helmets market, owing to the rising terrorist activities and border insurgencies around the world, while the police are also rapidly adopting advanced combat helmets. Due to its rapid adaptation rate, law enforcement agencies are expected to rapidly increase their demand in the world market for advanced combat helmets.
Impact of covid-19 on Advanced Combat Helmet market
The COVID-19 pandemic has the potential to trigger a major global economic crisis, which affects all industries. One of the industrial sectors affected by the coronavirus storm is advanced combat helmet.
