Bullet proofing helps prevent high velocity projectiles or bullet from penetrating the surface. Bullet resistant materials are often used to protect personnel from death or serious injuries in law enforcement and military field. Bullet resistance is more precise than bullet proof as there are few practical materials which can provide thorough protection against all types of bullets even after several hits at identical location. Bullet-resistant materials also known as ballistic materials can be rigid or supple. They can be complex, such as carbon fiber, Lexan,Kevlar and composite materials, or a basic material, like titanium or steel. Bullet proofing is used in aerospace, liquid armor, armored fighting vehicle, bulletproof vest, military vehicle, panic room, bulletproof glass, plastic armor, bank vault, bomb suit, riot shield, safe, armored car. Presently available bullet proofing lacks coverage from high speed projectiles, cracking of shield materials from bullet strikes and shock proofing.
Defense expenditure around the world has been increasing. This is visible in arms and ammunition market. It is expected government defense agencies will invest in acquiring higher efficient bullet proofing in form of- vest, military vehicle and aerospace. These demands will be directly proportional to the advancements of arms industry and innovations in bulletproofing technology.
Based on the type, the next generation bullet proofing market is segmented into bullet proof jackets, explosion-proof blankets, body armor, bulletproof glass and others. In 2015, the bulletproof glass segment anticipated to be the major market and anticipated to be the same during the forecast period of 2016 – 2024.
