(Ceramic Armor Market Segmented by Region/Country: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and Central & South America)
Ceramic armors are used to protect vehicles, personnel, aircraft, and marine ships. They are lightweight and flexible, and these properties are propelling their demand in the aerospace & defense industries. Ceramic armors are increasingly being used in the manufacturing of helmets, goggles, gloves, and backpacks for military applications. In the aerospace industry, materials such as alumina, titanium, steel, boron carbide, silicon carbide, and ceramic matrix composite are used to manufacture aircraft armors, which protect land vehicles as well as to fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft. For instance, Saint-Gobain offers silicon carbide ceramic tile armor assemblies for military, law enforcement, and civilian applications. According to the data cited by the Aerospace Industries Association (AIA), the global aerospace & defense industry experienced year-on-year growth of 6.7% in 2019. Such notable growth in this industry in different countries in the world is triggering the demand for protective armors, including ceramic armor.
Ceramic Armor Market: Segmental Overview
In terms of material type, the silicon carbide segment is expected to register the highest CAGR in the ceramic armor market during the forecast period, and the projected growth is mainly attributed to the strength and hardness or these armors. Based on application, the vehicle armor segment is projected to register the highest CAGR of 7.3% in the market during 2020–2027.
