Ballistic composites are high-performance fibers capable of absorbing shock and impact energy caused by explosions. They consist of layered structural composites with polymer matrix reinforced with glass, carbon and para-aramid fibers to provide enhanced strength and stiffness. These composites are commonly used as raw materials to manufacture vests, helmets, shields and body and vehicle armors. They exhibit various advantageous properties, such as resistance to heat and corrosion, high thermal conductivity and durability. As a result, they find extensive applications across various industries, such as defense, automotive, aviation and aerospace.

Ballistic Composites Market Trends:
The market is primarily being driven by an alarming increase in the instances of armed conflicts, violence and terrorism across the globe. Moreover, the escalating need for military modernization to enhance national security is providing a thrust to the market growth. With the development of next-generation weaponry systems, governments and defense organizations, especially of developing nations, are rapidly adopting novel ballistic composites to support and improve the survivability of the fight troops. Ballistic composites are also widely used for ground, marine and air vessels to improve combat efficiencies against overhead and external artillery and machine gunfire. Additionally, various product innovations, such as the development of Improved Outer Tactical Vest (IOTV), Deltoid and Auxiliary Protector System (DAPS), Enhanced Small Arms Protective Insert (ESAPI) and Enhanced Side Ballistic Inserts (ESBI), are acting as other growth-inducing factors. These novel composites are lightweight, comfortable and user-friendly and provide enhanced protection against ballistic threats, such as bullets, flying debris and shrapnel.
