Global Ceramic Armor Market valued approximately USD 1.52 billion in 2016 is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 7.20% over the forecast period 2017-2025. Military modernization programs across the globe and focus on soldier survivability are key factors driving industry growth. Defense sectors across the globe invest heavily in novel armor materials such as ceramics, which provide superior ballistic performance. In the defense and security sector, ceramics form an integral part of modern armor systems. Their high usage is attributed to improved performance and comparatively lower weight during ballistic scale impacts. Growing threat of hard – tipped shield – piercing rounds and higher energy projectiles is likely to influence market demand.

Based on region, the market has been categorized into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and MEA. U.S. is a major contributor to the North American regional market due to heavy investments in the military and defense sectors. North America is home to several ceramic armor companies, which enables them to gain a competitive edge over companies operating in other regions. Demand in Asia Pacific is anticipated to grow remarkably over the forecast period owing to increasing cross – border disputes and terrorist activities. China, South Korea, Pakistan, and India are prominent countries in the APAC regional market
