By material type, the composites segment to register the highest CAGR 6.7% during the forecast period, owing to growing preference of composite materials in mobile military equipment, such as tanks and large ships. However, the metal & alloys segment held the largest share in 2019, accounting for nearly two-fifths of the global armor material market, due to growing application of titanium and its alloys in military armor and vehicle.

By application, the vehicles segment held the largest share in 2019, contributing to around two-fifths of the global armor materials market, owing to growing application of lightweight aluminum alloys in military vehicles such as personnel carriers. However, the body segment is expected to portray the highest CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period, due to increase in application for Kevlar fabrics and Dyneema fabrics in armor vests.

The vehicle segment accounted for the significant revenue share in 2019, owing to growing application of lightweight aluminum alloys in military vehicles such as personnel carriers, will propel the market growth. Due to improved performance, lightweight aluminum alloys are used for transporting equipment including air transport for military vehicles.
