Market Synopsis


The Ceramic Armor Materials Market, in terms of value, is estimated to account for USD 2.80 billion in 2025, exhibiting a CAGR of 7.65%.

Ceramic materials are used to design armor. Ceramic plates are inserted in soft ballistic vests, which decreases the penetration ability of projectile. They offer projectile resistance and comprehensive strength. In 2019, CoorsTek has made an investment of USD 26 billion to expand the production of ceramic body armor, ceramic components for the US military personnel.


Ceramic is widely used as a protection textile in the defense industry. Alumina and silicone are considered as vital ceramic fiber materials in the manufacturing of ballistic protection materials. The ceramic plates that are inserted in soft ballistic vests deflect the bullet by pushing it out with the same force. The low cost of ballistic ceramic materials, e.g., alumina, makes it an ideal for use in automobiles, whereas silicon carbide is primarily used to protect vehicles against large projectiles. Military vehicles were traditionally manufactured with the help of armor plate steel, which is now replaced by ceramic composites. Boron nitride armor material is also used in the manufacturing of military aircraft, helicopters, and small boats, among others.


The growth of the aerospace and defense industry is expected to propel the demand for ceramic armor material. Besides, the defense spending in countries such as Japan, China, the US, and India has increased significantly. For instance, the military expenditure in China, India, and Russia increased by 5.4%, 8.5%, and 5.9%, respectively, in 2018. The defense equipment that are high in demand include armored ground vehicles, lightweight air support aircraft, maritime patrol ships, and aircraft. Thus, the growth of the aerospace and defense industry is expected to be the prime factor fueling the demand for ceramic armor material during the forecast period.
