Market Overview:

Ceramic armors are majorly used in personal armors and armored vehicles and help resist the projectile penetration. Ceramic armors offer compressive strength, hardness and are lightweight as compared to metal alloy armors. Materials commonly used in making of ceramic armors are alumina, silicon carbide, boron carbide and titanium diboride etc. A wide range of ceramic armor designs are available ranging from monolithic plates to three dimensional complex matrices.

Evolution has been seen for ceramic armors from many decades. Major companies are focusing on further improvements in the ballistic performance through optimization of ceramic properties and characteristics. A large number of variations can include use of multipiece or perforated ceramic components, low temperature ceramic bonding to achieve high performance, functional gradation of microstructures etc.

Armor design and modelling continues to be important and crucial step in the development of improved and lighter armor materials. The research is expected to continue at a moderate pace owing to increasing demand for more efficient and lightweight armor configurations to deal with variety of threats.

Growth Drivers:

Increasing expenditure by governments in modernization and improving protection to their military by many countries worldwide is projected to drive the ceramic armor market growth. Additionally, lower weight and design flexibility of the ceramics makes it most suitable for manufacturing body armors and thus are widely preferred as inserts in soft ballistic vests.

Cross-border disputes among many countries and increasing terror activities in many parts of the globe are other major factors driving the growth of global ceramic armor market.

Growth Restraints and Challenges:

High-cost, design complexities and rising number of substitutes to ceramic armors such as para-aramid ceramic synthetic fibers and polypropylene can limit the overall market growth in the coming years. Also, developing ceramic armor with efficient and lightweight configurations to deal with variety of threats is major challenge.

Growth Avenues:

Rise in advancements in the defence sector, increasing investments in R&D by various countries and growing number of new innovations in the field of manufacturing ceramic are projected to open new growth opportunities for the ceramic armor market.

"Final Report will cover a detailed analysis regarding the impact of COVID-19 on this industry."
