The research study focuses on the technology or types of tests used for ballistic composites, products used, and the end users along with the key subtypes in each of these categories. The research was conducted to look at the market from the following points and then arrive at the Total Addressable Market (TAM):
The different fiber types of Ballistic composites are Aramid Fiber, Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) Fiber, and S-Glass Fiber, out of which Aramid fiber is the major contributor in the fiber segment. Aramid fiber is utilized for a variety of purposes in military and homeland security because of its exceptional qualities, including strength, flexibility, durability, stability, low weight, and resistance to heat, temperature, and moisture. It is used to create a variety of goods, including face and body armor, body armor for vehicles, and helmets. Because of its lightweight and corrosion resistance, aramid fiber-based ballistics fiber is anticipated to see an increase in demand.
The different types of matrixes used in the market for the production of ballistics are Polymer Matrix, Polymer-Ceramic Matrix, and Metal Matrix. Polymer-ceramic matrix is the most favored type of matrix due to its features like low weight, high friction, and temperature resistance.
The polymer-ceramic composite is mainly used for the production of protective garments, helmets, and body vests as it cost low and the fabrication method is also simple.
The products of this market are Vehicle Armor, Body Armor, Helmets & Face Protection, out of which vehicle armor is the major contributor and ensure high-level protection against ballistic impacts and provides high protection to the lives of military personnel in these vehicles. The body armor segment is also growing rapidly due to the protection it provides to armed soldiers, they are supposed to be light in weight for ease of mobility.
The ballistic composites market has been divided into military, homeland security, and private securities. Military applications have dominated the ballistic composites market. The majority of casualties occur during military engagements as a result of explosion-related fragments. For protection against ballistic threats while on missions, military and homeland security personnel need advanced ballistic protection gear comprised of composites, such as body armor.
Ballistic composites are generally used for the protection of the arms and the production of the armor and body vest, the importance of the composites increases when they are used in the field or any given platform be it marine or airborne. The protection of the soldier, the gadgets and equipment used by them, and the vehicles they drive is the basic trend of the ballistic composite.
