Armor Materials Industry Outlook:

Armor materials are specialized protective fabrics designed to reduce impact or damage from outside forces by absorbing shocks. They are manufactured from leather, ceramics, metals, para-aramid fiber, alloy, and fiberglass. They offer enhanced protection against handguns and sharp-edged weapons and are lightweight, durable, and comfortable. Since they provide high structural strength, fracture and crack resistance, and chemical inertness, armor materials find extensive applications in bulletproof vests, armor, helmets, and vehicles across the globe.
