The global armored vehicle market was valued at USD 22 billion in 2014. It is projected to reach USD 27 billion by 2022. Growth will be fueled by rising global focus on protecting the armed forces. Growing internal and external terrorism is a grave concern. Nations are taking various measures to battle terrorist attacks. These include multilateral collaborations like NATO – North Atlantic Treaty Organization, and African Union.
Increasing federal spending on defense, especially in Asia Pacific will fuel market growth. However, limited military budget in North America and Europe may restrict future demand. Improved fuel efficiency and better armor material will also have a positive effect on market growth. Innovations like unmanned vehicles open up future opportunities. Growing awareness of commercial security would also drive demand.
