Body Armor Market to hit USD 2.5 Bn by 2027; Global Market Insights Inc.

Selbyville, Delaware, Oct. 06, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —

Body Armor Market revenue is anticipated to record a valuation of USD 2.5 billion by 2027, according to the most recent study by Global Market Insights Inc. The rising acts of terrorism have encouraged security personnel and civilians to use body armors for protection against firearms and weapon attacks. Expansion in the security industry for patrolling and rising crime rates will drive the body armor market growth.

The body armor market was affected mildly during the COVID-19 pandemic. The shortage of manpower, raw materials, and disruptions in supply chain management affected the body armor industry in the first half of 2020. The rise in military spending and body armor procurement by several countries has resulted in a surge in the market growth of body armors in the second half of 2020. According to a report published by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), it was reported that the UK became the fifth-largest military spender in 2020 with a total of USD 59.8 billion.

The growing demand for body armors among civilians is creating growth opportunities in the body armor market. Rising crime rates, home invasion, burglaries, property crimes, homicides, and other similar activities are contributing to the higher demand for body armors among civilians. Increasing crime rates in countries including the U.S., Brazil, South Africa, Mexico are leading to higher procurement of civilian body armors.

Europe is anticipated to witness a high growth rate owing to a rising budget allocation by the government for the military & defense sector. According to Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), France’s military spending in 2020 was USD 52.7 billion, an increase of 2.9% compared to 2019. The upward trend in military expenditure to protect the country’s military position will boost the procurement of body armors over the forecast timeframe.
