Market Scenario


The global military tactical vest market is expected to register significant growth during the forecast period. Increase in military investments and the growing need for technologies that safeguard lives of military troops are expected to drive market growth during the forecast period. Furthermore, military tactical vests are also used for storing ammunition and weapons such as grenades, gun magazines, and communication devices such as cell phones.


Modern military tactical vests are comfortable and easy to wear. Improvement in material quality has enabled these vests to be lightweight and easy to carry. Furthermore, plates in military tactical vests are uniformly distributed for increased protection and reduction in fatigue. Depending on the application, the military tactical vests are available in different variants based on the protection level as protection against ballistics and protection against knives and spikes cannot be similar.


Military programs such as the Soldier Protection System, introduced by the US military, focus on the development of various sub-systems such as lightweight ballistic plates that are expected to drive the growth of the global market for military tactical vests. Moreover, these modular vests consist of technologies related to communication, vision, and enemy detection.
