The Global Ballistic Composites Market size is anticipated to exceed USD 4.32 Billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 8.4% from 2022 to 2032. The ballistic composites market is expanding due to rising requirements from law enforcement and the military sectors. However, the surge in demand for ballistic composite materials is owing to the high demand for highly effective performance materials.
Ballistic composites are powerful fibers that can absorb shock from fires and explosions They are made up of layered structural composite materials with a polymer matrix strengthened with para-aramid fibers, glass, and carbon for increased strength and stiffness. These materials are used to make vests, helmets, shields, vehicle and body armors. Polymers, metals, and polymer-ceramics are examples of ballistic composites. Each of these components is used depending on the specific kind of product required. The defense field is a major consumer of ballistic composites. Products for the land segment account for the greatest number of ballistic composites manufactured. Because of the benefits it provides, polymer is the main ballistic composite material. Polymers are stronger and more resistant to temperature as well as chemical corrosion. Polymers are also more flexible, lightweight, and easy to operate than metals. Aside from military uses, ballistic composites have applications in products used by homeland security for peacekeeping, dealing with explosives, and dealing with terrorist attacks.
