Military Helmet Market Size Is Anticipated To Reach USD 3 Billion By 2030 & at a CAGR Of 6.5% 2022-2030
The nature of warfare has changed significantly over the past two decades. An imperative need has emerged to provide combatants with adequate support to control any collateral damage at the same time. With the simultaneous increase in terror threats and anti-extremist missions, globally, there has been a simultaneous surge in the development of military helmet systems. As a result, the defense authorities around the world are focusing on the development of advanced and lightweight military helmet systems. Meanwhile, the companies are also engaged in the development of the military helmet systems that are small in size and weigh less, which will aid the armed troops during longer missions with reduced fatigue.
The demand for military helmet systems has increased in military applications as they help improve the overall ballistic protection along with the capabilities of the troops. As a result, there has been a high demand for the military helmet systems by the armed forces, to protect themselves from any injury. It is expected that the increasing investments in such protective systems would provide numerous opportunities for the market players, in the forthcoming years.
In the recent years, there has been an increase in the number of armed conflicts such as the Syrian Civil War, the India-Pakistan stalemate over Kashmir, the Lebanon conflict, the ongoing Israel-Palestine conflict, the Russia and Ukraine conflict over Crimea, and the conflicts between the US and North Korea. Of late, due to the growing disputes, a number of countries have increased their military expenses for the procurement and development of advanced military helmet systems.
The global military helmet market has been segmented by type, weight, material, and region. Based on type, the market is divided into lightweight helmet, modular integrated communications helmet, and enhanced combat helmet. In 2017, the lightweight helmet segment accounted for the largest market share and it is expected that the enhanced combat helmet segment would witness the fastest market growth, during the forecast period. Based on weight, the market is divided into up to 3 lbs and over 3 lbs. In 2017, the over 3 lbs segment accounted for the largest market share and it is expected that the up to 3 lbs segment would witness the fastest market growth, during the forecast period. Based on material, the market is divided into original aramid fiber kevlar, advanced aramid fiber, and UHMWPE fiber. In 2017, the original aramid fiber kevlar segment accounted for the largest market share and it is expected that the UHMWPE fiber segment would register the fastest market growth, during the forecast period.
The global military helmet market has also been segmented into five regions, namely, North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and Latin America. North America had the largest share in 2017, owing to the presence of the key companies such as 3M, Safariland Group, Revision Military, and DuPont, among others. Moreover, North America generates a very high demand for military helmet systems, largely due to the high number of military operations and anti-extremist missions of the region. Furthermore, the US has a high military expenditure and heads in the technological advancements, across the globe, which fuels the market growth. Likewise, Asia-Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing market for military helmet systems, during the forecast period, due to the significantly rising military expenses by the emerging economies such as China, India, and South Korea. In addition, the region is prone to terror attacks and border conflicts, which drives the demand for the military helmet systems. Therefore, the global market is estimated to register a CAGR of approximately 6% during the forecast period of 2018 to 2023.
