A bulletproof jacket is a product of body armor that helps to absorb the impact and reduce the penetration to the torso from firearm-fired projectiles and any fragments from various explosions. A bulletproof jacket helps to protect the torso against bombs, bullets, and knives. These are generally made by layering laminated or woven fibers with ceramic inserted or metal ballistic plates.
Global Bullet Proof Jacket Market Dynamics
- Increasing demand for soft bulletproof jacket
The growing demand for soft bulletproof jacket in the military sector is expected to propel the growth for the market. The soft bulletproof jacket comprises layers of laminated and woven fibers, which helps protect security personnel and soldiers from shotgun bombs and small-caliber handguns. Furthermore, ballistic plates are usually found within soft jacket, which are rapidly growing in the bulletproof jacket market.
- Growth and expansion of the military sector
The growth and expansion of the military sector are likely to drive the growth of the bulletproof jacket market during the forecast period. This is majorly due to increasing military expenditure, further propelling the large-scale procurement of bulletproof jacket and body armor for the dismounted infantry of the armed forces. The French government introduced the O-NYX program under the defense expenditure plan to replace small equipment such as handguns, helmets, and advanced bulletproof equipment for its military in the upcoming years.
- Increasing focus on advanced lightweight bulletproof jacket
The heavyweight bulletproof jacket makes it challenging for military men to wear this and move freely on the battlefield. As a result, firms and governments are focussing on developing new lightweight jacket with increased mobility. For instance, in 2021, the DRDO announced the development of a lightweight bulletproof jacket that weighs 9 kg and meets the qualitative requirements of the Indian Army. Therefore, the increasing focus on advanced lightweight bulletproof jacket will create ample opportunities for market growth.
- Rising implementation of new technology in bulletproof jacket
The growing implementation of new bulletproof jacket technology will further offer lucrative opportunities within the market growth. The development of bulletproof jacket materials with the help of nanotechnology is likely to be a significant market opportunity. For instance, researchers at MIT and the California Institute of Technology announced that they had made a nanoengineered material in 2021 that is stronger than the presently used bulletproof jacket.
- High cost associated with bulletproof jacket
The high cost of bulletproof jacket is hampering the market's growth during the forecast period. The cost of bulletproof jacket is higher due to the implantation of new and advanced technologies and the usage of improved quality products. As a result of these factors, the bulletproof jacket market is likely to be hampered during the forecast period.
- Rising cases of defective bulletproof jacket
Growing cases of defective bulletproof jacket hamper the growth of the market. For instance, in 2018, Toyobo paid USD 66 million to resolve the claim as the company sold defective fiber used in bulletproof vests. This agreement was signed between Toyobo and The U.S. federal and local law enforcement agencies.
