The ballistic protection market is projected to grow from USD 13.4 billion in 2022 to USD 16.9 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 4.7% from 2022 to 2027

·4-min read

The market is driven by the need for upgrades in the battlefield scenarios. However, the market’s growth is limited by the stringent standards for ballistic protection products. In 2020, the global military expenditure was worth USD 1,981 billion, the highest level since 1988 as per SIPRI.

New York, Sept. 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- announces the release of the report "Ballistic Protection Market by Material, Product, Technology, Threat Level, Platform, Application and Region - Global Forecast to 2027" -
The global military expenditure in 2020 was 2.6% higher in real terms than in 2019 and 9.3% higher than in 2011. This increase was largely due to the fact that most countries in the world experienced severe economic downturns in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, while military expenditure continued to rise due to growing tension and disputes on several international borders around the world.
• By speed, high speed segment is expected to grow at highest CAGR

Unmanned vehicles that are manufactured for use as targets and can operate beyond a speed of 250 m/s fall under the category of high-speed target drones. This segment accounted for a 46.5% share of the target drones market in 2022. With the growing emphasis on replicating realistic threats in military training, high-speed target drones are expected to witness prominent demand during the forecast period. However, due to limited defense budget allocation in some emerging economies, these drones are not always feasible. The US, Russia, and China procure high-speed target drones. QinetiQ Group PLC (UK), Northrop Grumman (US), Kratos Defense and Security Solutions (US), and Boeing (US) are key manufacturers of high-speed target drones.
• By payload capacity, medium (20 kg to 40 kg) segment is expected to lead the market in terms of value

On the basis of payload capacity, the target drones market has been segmented into high (>40 kg), medium (20 kg to 40 kg), and low (<20 kg). The use of target drones in applications such as target & decoy, reconnaissance, and combat training requires additional components to make them more effective in operations. These target drones are equipped with passive & active radar augmentation, electronic payloads, GPS navigation, and several types of cameras. With the increasing efforts to make military training more realistic, these payloads are used to help drones perform functions in the above-mentioned applications. QinetiQ is one such major company involved in the production of target drones capable of carrying medium payloads.
