Drivers & Restraints-
Urgent Need to Provide Better Safety to Soldiers will Accelerate
The defense forces worldwide are looking forward to offering
better standards of combat tactical advantage and safety to the soldiers.
Coupled with this, the increasing security threats, such as political unrest,
terrorist activities, and cross border conflicts, especially in the Asian
countries would contribute to the military PPE market growth during the
forthcoming years. Prominent companies present in the market are aiming to
develop technologically advanced protective eyewear, combat
helmets, and fireproof body armors. However, in 2019, it was observed that
several countries lowered their defense budgets. In addition to this, the
rising number of malfunction issues associated with these military PPE kits may
obstruct the market growth.
Airborne Segment to Grow Steadily Owing to High Demand for Helmets
Based on application, the market is divided into naval, airborne,
and ground. Out of these, the airborne segment held 28% in terms of military
personal protective equipment market share in 2019. This growth is attributable
to the increasing demand for innovative helmets and goggles. The ground segment
is anticipated to dominate the market in the near future on account of the
extensive utilization of military PPE from ground defense forces.
North America to Remain at the Forefront Fueled by High Defense
Geographically, North America procured USD 4.89 billion revenue in
2019 and is expected to lead the market throughout the forecast period. The
main growth driver is the high defense budget of the U.S. In 2019, the U.S.
Department of Defense (DoD) spent USD 732 billion in the countryâ€™s defense
forces. That was the highest expenditure worldwide. Also, the rising
investments in research and development activities, upgradation of military forces,
and the rising procurement of latest equipment by signing contracts are some of
the other factors responsible for the growth of the market in this region.
Asia Pacific, on the other hand, is likely to grow remarkably
backed by the rising terrorist attacks and cross-border conflicts. These
factors would propel the countries, such as South Korea, Australia, China, and
India to strengthen their military forces. Europe would exhibit considerable
growth because of the increasing expansion of the military forces in the
developed countries, such as Russia, the U.K., and Germany.
Key Players Focus on Bagging Orders from Defense Forces to
