The ceramic armor market is projected to register a CAGR of 7.8%, in terms of value, between 2019 and 2024.

Ceramic armor is majorly used in the aerospace & defense industry owing to the superior ballistic protection offered by it.

Alumina material type is projected to register a higher CAGR, in terms of volume, between 2019 and 2024.

Ceramic armor manufactured using alumina material is expected to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period, owing to the properties offered by alumina, such as high modulus of elasticity, refractoriness, and hardness. Also, it provides the best cost-benefit among other ceramic armor material type. Additionally, the high demand for ceramic armor for the vehicle armor application is one of the major reason behind the high growth of alumina material type.

Vehicle armor application expected to register the highest CAGR between 2019 and 2024.

The vehicle armor application will register the highest CAGR in the ceramic armor market. The ceramic armor is significantly utilized for the manufacturing of vehicle armors as they provide excellent protection against the ballistic threats and projectiles. Ceramic armor also offers superior protection to vehicles from extreme and unfavorable weather conditions, resistance against corrosion, and convenience in the mobility of the vehicles.

North America accounted for the largest market share in the ceramic armor market

North America is expected to be the major market for ceramic armor during the forecast period. Increasing demand for ceramic armor for body armor and aircraft armor is driving the growth of the ceramic armor market in North America. The U.S. leads the market for ceramic armor in North America. Further, the increased budget for the military and huge investments for R&D of ceramic armor is also driving the growth of ceramic armor in the North American market.
