Ballistic Composites Market Is Expected To Grow At A CAGR Of 6.1% By 2033


With a market value of US$ 1.8 billion in 2023, it is predicted that demand for ballistic composites would increase at a CAGR of 6.1% from 2023 to 2033.A class of materials known as “ballistic composites” is created especially to offer defence against projectiles and other ballistic threats like bullets and shrapnel. These composite materials are designed to be strong, impact-resistant, and lightweight, which makes them perfect for applications that need excellent ballistic protection without sacrificing performance or mobility.

Due to the rising need for lightweight materials that provide outstanding ballistic protection while lowering weight, like aramid fibres and high-performance polyethylene, the ballistic composites market is expanding significantly. In the defence, aerospace, and sporting goods industries, where weight loss is essential for improved performance, this trend is particularly pronounced.
