Chemical and Materials Ceramic Armor Market

The Ceramic Armor Market is projected to grow at a CAGR 6.49% rate between 2021 and 2026. Increased investment by countries to improve protection to the military is one of the major drivers for the growth of the ceramic armor market.


Silicon carbide segment is estimated to hold the largest share in the global ceramic armor market. Silicon carbide ceramic material is supreme for defending rifle bullets because of its superior strength and hardness. Higher defense capabilities and lower weight has increased the demand for silicon carbide ceramic armor material.


Body armor segment is expected to lead the market attributed to high demand from armed forces and law enforcement services. Increased demand for enhanced body armors due to modernization of weapons which has increased the level of threat effectiveness. Ceramic also offers lightweight and comfortable mobility, which is one of the major reasons behind the growing adoption in the body armor application.


North America is estimated to hold the largest market share in the ceramic armor market during the forecast period. Increased military spending by various governments especially US government is responsible for the growing consumption of ceramic armor in the vehicle armor and aircraft armor applications.


Key market players include Saint-Gobain (France), 3M Company (US), Koninklijke Ten Cate BV (Netherlands), Coorstek, Inc. (US), and Morgan Advanced Materials plc (UK).
