Military Parachute Market Trends


Increase in the Deployment of Parachutes in Defense and the Evolution of Parachutes in Sports are driving the market growth

The use of parachutes in military operations has significantly increased demand, with the defense industry being the main user. The rise in wars worldwide, the expansion of ISR activities involving UAVs, and the expansion of parachuting as a recreational activity will increase demand for parachutes. Technological developments, including utilizing lightweight materials, integrating GPS systems, drogue chutes, and recovery parachutes, will further support the rise. Round parachutes are mostly used in military ejection seats, cargo, and drogue chutes. These parachutes are also utilized in recreational activities like parasailing and aircraft recovery systems. Due to rising spending by nations like China and India to increase their air superiority, the market for round parachutes in the Asia-Pacific region would experience rapid expansion.


Developed economies like North America and Europe significantly invest in creating and acquiring technical textiles for troop parachutes and recovery. Due to a lack of resources and understanding, emerging markets have had a slower adoption rate of parachutes and their potential advantages. Since these markets have several untapped and undiscovered prospects, their development is anticipated to increase during the projection period.


Yet, some significant restrictions may impact the military parachute market's growth in the ensuing years. These considerations include severe government regulations since it is difficult for manufacturers of parachute systems and parachute equipment to follow the regulations of procurement and inspection. Most worldwide military parachute market participants are from the North American and European continents, which is diverse and competitive. Based on their core strengths, businesses dominate the market. The United States Airborne Systems, Mills Manufacturing, Butler Parachute Systems, Spekon (Germany), FXC Corporation, and CIMSA Ingenieria are the major market participants (Spain).
