Ceramic Armor Market Trends, Growth & Forecast (2021 - 2026)

The global Ceramic Armor Market was assessed to be USD 2.8 billion in 2021, and with a CAGR of about 10.2% over the foreseen period, the market is likely to reach USD 4.6 billion by 2026.

The on-going soldier modernization program initiated by several governments across the worldwide and this is increasing the sales of ceramic armor. The first concern associated with law enforcement for the military sector is the protection of the soldiers against high-velocity striking bullets and establish a bullet's potential for damage, bombs, etc., for the protection propose. As compared to steel, ceramics will be a better alternative to achieve the needed performance like body armors. Ceramics have a larger favorable or superior position in terms of weight and design flexibility. The new innovations in the manufacturing of ceramic armor are predicted to design body armor with the distinctive attribute or aspect of something like survivability, sustainability, and mobility which will help for the soldiers.

Ceramic Armor Market Segmentation & Insights as per the research report until 2026.

Ceramic Armor Market - By Material Type

  • Silicon CarbideAlumina

  • Boron Carbide

  • Ceramic Matrix Composite

  • Others (Titanium Boride, Aluminium Nitride)

By material type, the Silicon carbide in a specified way held a substantial share in the global ceramic armor market because of its superior strength and hardness. Silicon carbide ceramic material is supreme for resisting an attack made by rifle bullets. Also, the augmenting need for body armor with higher defense capability and lower weight has improved the use of silicon carbide ceramic armor in recent years.
