Armored Vehicle Market Size to Hit USD 26.12 Billion by 2026; Rising Demand for Effective Countermeasures for Incoming Threats to Fuel the Market, Says Fortune Business Insights™


Pune, May 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global armored vehicle market size is projected to reach USD 26.12 billion by 2026, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.36% during the forecast period. Steady ramping up of military expenditure by countries will prove beneficial for this market, observes Fortune Business Insights™ in its report, titled "Armored Vehicle Market Size, Share and Industry Analysis, By Platform (Combat Vehicles, Combat Support Vehicles, Unmanned Armored Ground Vehicles), By Mobility (Wheeled, Tracked), By System (Engine, Drive Systems, Ballistic Armor, Turret Drives, Ammunition Handling Systems, Others) and Regional Forecast, 2019-2026". The latest report by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) reveals that in 2019, cumulative global military spending stood at USD 1917 billion, rising by 3.6% from 2018 level.

The largest spenders, the SIPRI reports, were US, China, India, Russia, and Saudi Arabia (in that order). This increasing expenditure on the armed forces shows the intent of the major world economies in upgrading their defense forces with modern weaponry to better equip their soldiers in the battlefield, which augurs well for this market as armored vehicles are vital in ground-level combat as well as in border patrolling activities during peacetime.

Market Driver:

Intensification of Cross-Border Conflicts around the World to Accelerate Market Growth

The armored vehicle market growth trajectory is likely to get a major upward push on account of the rising intensity of cross-border tensions across the globe. For example, in Asia, tensions between India and Pakistan have always been high, even resulting in open wars in some cases. Similarly, cross-border skirmishes between India and China have become commonplace. In many other regions also such tensions have escalated in recent years.

For instance, the complex military situation in Syria and Libya has kept regions surrounding these countries in a mode of self-preservation. Moreover, historical conflicts such as the one between North Korea and South Korea have kept governments on their toes. Armored vehicles are a key component in a nation's military arsenal as they empower armed forces to efficiently monitor border situations and deter any forthcoming attacks.

Regional Analysis:

Asia-Pacific to Showcase Impressive Growth; North America to Have Tight Grip on Market Revenue

The market growth is anticipated to be the fastest in Asia-Pacific owing to the constant threat of terrorist activities in the region. To counter these threats, countries in the region, mainly India and China, have strategically increased their budgetary allocation to the defense sector to modernize their arsenal, which bodes well for this market. In addition, the region is home to strong weapons manufacturers such as the Ordnance Factory Board in India and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries in Japan. 

However, the region dominating the armored vehicle market share is expected to be North America, primarily owing to the heavy military spending by the US and massive investments in R&D activities for advanced weapons technologies and upgrading the national defense infrastructure. In 2018, the region's market size was at USD 6.61 billion.
