Increasing terrorist activities and warfare situations around the globe 

'Terrorism incorporates a wide array of complex threats, for instance, overseas extremist fighters, planned terrorism in conflict regions, attacks using biological, radiological, nuclear, chemical, and explosive materials, and radicalized lone wolves. According to the Institute for Economics & Peace, terrorism activities have witnessed an upward trend, especially in sub-Saharan nations. Moreover, South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa have the maximum regional economic impact, accounting for $5.6 and $12.5 billion, respectively. In spite of the overall decline in the impact of terrorism across the globe, it still remains a substantial and critical problem in many nations. There were 63 countries in 2019 that logged at least one death due to terrorist attacks and 17 countries that logged about 100 deaths from terrorism. The global economic impact of terrorism in 2019 amounted to S$26.4 billion, a fall of 25% from 2018. Although the economic impact of terrorism is falling throughout the world, it still amounts to significant value.

Advanced Protective Gear and Armor products are immensely helpful in tackling terrorist activities, as they protect and act as a shield against different types of terrorist attacks, for example, chemical weapons, biological weapons, bullets, and others. Thus, the increasing threats of terrorism and warfare situations in conflicted regions of the world are anticipated to propel the growth of the global advanced protective gear and armor market during the forecast timeframe.

Stringent laws & regulations regarding work environment safety

Personal protective equipment (PPE) is crucial for every work that involves employees working in hazardous surroundings or alongside risks. Personal protective equipment, also known as protective gear or safety gear, is any kind of wearable or equipment worn by an individual to keep themselves safe from workroom-specific dangers. Usually, protective gear provides safety against any physical, chemical, radiological, biological, mechanical, electrical, or any other threat in the workshop. 

Section 1910.132(h)(1) in Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA’s) general requirements about PPE specifically states that protecting equipment, including personal protective equipment (PPE) shall be provided by the company free of cost to its workers. There are various kinds of personal protective equipment available today that are used to enhance workplace safety for workers. Some of those types comprise skin and body protection, respiratory protection, hearing protection, and eye protection. Similarly, OSHA has set guidelines regarding the usage of body armors for workers that work on the job that may lead to gunshot wounds and knife stab wounds. Such regulations have resulted in a significant rise in demand for modern protective gear and armor across different operations, such as personal protection equipment for bomb disposal, firefighters, military operations (body and vehicular armor, as well as bullet-resistant suits) and others, across the world. The implementation of strict safety rules across different sectors is expected to fuel the growth of the global advanced protective gear and armor market during the forecast timeframe.

Availability of poor quality, low-cost products

The prevailing Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) personal protective equipment (PPE) standards are available in 29 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 1926 Subpart E for Construction, Part 1918 Subpart J for Longshoring, Part 1917 Subpart E for Marine Terminals, Part 1915 Subpart I for Maritime, and Part 1910 Subpart I for General Industry. Similarly, VPAM armor standard (Europe), HOSDB armor standard (United Kingdom), GOST armor standard (Russia), TR armor standard (Germany), and other standards exist for body armors globally. Protective gears and armors are manufactured and tested to comply with these standards. However, various inferior quality protective gears are available in the market that poses a risk to the lives of workers. They are not designed as per any recognized standard and are available at a much cheaper price than the standard ones. According to BMJ Publishing Group’s report published in February 2021, Ltd., The UK government wasted hundreds of millions of pounds of taxpayers’ money on inferior-quality and ineffectual personal protective equipment (PPE) while leaving healthcare staff inadequately protected from coronavirus. The supply of cheap protective gear and armor is expected to hamper the growth of the global advanced protective gear and armor market during the forecast period.

Rise in military expenditure to acquire body armors

Body armor is one of the most common safety equipment worn by police officers and soldiers. The advanced lightweight body armor is in high demand globally, which is made using lighter and sturdier materials so that the performance of armors could be achieved at a much-reduced weight. Several countries in recent years have placed bulk orders to obtain advanced body armors for military forces. For instance, in 2019, the U.S. Army spent $245.4 million on body armor. The expenditure was expected to change considerably in 2020 to $176.8 million for body armor. In 2021, the U.S. Department of Defense demanded a raise to $234.6 million for body armor. Moreover, in June 2020, due to the efforts made by a few female experts in Congress, a provision for superior-fitting female body armor was included in the council's draft version of the 2021 National Defense Authorization Act. In June 2020, the Indian Army announced its plans for inducting Sarvatra Kavach, a full body armor suit, for its defense force that will be devoid of raw materials from Chinese and designed, developed, and manufactured in India. In February 2020, with the objective of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) to enhance its battle readiness and preparing for military fights, the PLA Army publicized its plan to acquire 1.4 million units of superior body armor with plates for a top limit price of about $1.85 billion in the coming 2 years.

Rise in military spending to acquire state-of-the-art body armors for military forces as mentioned above is expected to propel the growth of the global advanced protective gear and armor market during the forecast period
