Armoured Personnel Carrier (APC)Market Scenario
Armored Personnel Carrier (APC) Market Value To Reach USD 5,632.84 Million By 2027 At 4.66% CAGR By 2020-2027
Armoured Personnel Carrier (APC) also termed as armoured combat vehicle, armoured car or infantry mobility vehicle is an armored vehicle designed to carry troops and equipment into the battlefield. APCs weighs less than the infantry fighting vehicles and main battle tanks, and hence are more mobile. Unlike the infantry fighting vehicles (IFV), APCs do not to take part in direct-fire battle and are primarily designed for transport. However, they are lightly armed for self-defence and are armored for protection against shrapnel, small arms and artillery fire. Furthermore, certain types of APCs are used by non-military organizations as well.
Factors such as focus on preventing riots in urban areas and rising incidences of asymmetric warfare are positively impacting the armoured personnel carrier market growth. In addition, the rise in defense expenditure, especially in emerging economies and subsequent investments in procuring armored vehicles to strengthen combat and tactical capabilities further boosts the market growth. However, factors such as delays in procurement processes hinders the market growth to a certain extent while enhancing protection, configuration, mobility and weaponry without significant increase in weight and cost of the APCs is a key challenge faced by the market players. Meanwhile, rising terrorist attacks and focus on counter operations, and aging combat vehicle upgradation programs being initiated by many countries throughout the world, create promising growth opportunities for the armoured personnel carrier market. Companies are also keen on developing an integrated solution covering multiple systems for maximum tactical and strategic mobility.
