戰鬥頭盔市場在2020年∼2025年的預測期間內，預計將展現6％以上的年複合成長率。主要市場趨勢，是彈道纖維頭盔主導市場，及亞太地區將在預測期內表現出最高的成長率。鬥頭盔市場與主要參與者合併，如ArmorSource LLC、3M Company、Honeywell International Inc.、Revision Military Inc.、MKU Limited、DuPont de Nemours Inc.，主導市場。
The combat helmet market is expected to exhibit a CAGR of more than 6% during the forecast period 2020-2025.
Ballistic Fiber Helmets Dominate the Market
The increasing use of lightweight materials such as Kevlar, Twaron, Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene is propelling the market growth for advanced combat helmets. The use of the aforementioned materials reduces the helmet weight by 20-30% and traumatic impact by blast and ammunition by 20% compared to standard metal and PASGT helmets. Hence, Ballistic Fiber combat helmets are anticipated to account for the largest market share during the forecast period. Helmet manufacturers, such as Honeywell and SORD, are investing in the R&D of materials having high energy redirecting properties. Certain design innovations such as high cut design are being incorporated to accommodate accessories such as headsets, cables, etc. while providing a comfortable fit. For instance, in 2019, the US introduced it's Second-generation Integrated Head Protection System (IHPS), which is nearly 50% lighter than its predecessor variant, for its ground-based armed forces. Digital system integration is another area that is seeing a lot of improvement in combat helmets. Use of Augmented Reality (AR) in helmets will increase the situational awareness of combatants and the use of sensors and cameras will give them an enhanced 360-degree view of the environment via helmet-mounted HUD visors.
Asia-Pacific to Exhibit the Highest Growth Rate During the Forecast Period
Emerging economies in the Asia-Pacific, such as India and China are top weapon importers with a huge military expenditure. India now supplies combat systems and accessories to more than 40 countries. In 2018, the Government of India approved the purchase of 328,000 new ballistic helmets for its armed forces. In July 2018, MKU supplied the first lot of 7,500 advanced ballistic helmets to the Indian Army, as part of the contract worth USD 22.3 million to supply 158,000 helmets to the Indian Armed Forces. In China, the law enforcement agencies are being equipped with smart helmets developed by Kuang-Chi Technology that can detect the body temperature and thus assist in the containment of the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. The helmet features pre-installed Wi-Fi and 5G technology that efficiently integrates and enhances communication and data sharing. On a similar note, in September 2019, JARVISH Inc.'s prototype augmented reality (AR) helmet was qualified by Taiwan's National Chung-Shan Institute of Science and Technology (NCSIST) for the Digital Tactical AR Project of the Taiwanese Ministry of Defence. The first lot of smart helmets is expected to be delivered in 2020 for field trial.
The combat helmet market is consolidated with major players such as ArmorSource LLC, 3M Company, Honeywell International Inc., Revision Military Inc., MKU Limited, DuPont de Nemours Inc. dominating the market. In March 2020, Melbourne based SORD received a USD 338,000 contract to supply concussion-proof combat helmets to Australian Defence Forces as a part of the Australian Government's initiative of Defence Innovation Hub through which the government plans to invest USD 640 million in the national defense industry. The technology developed by SORD significantly reduces the impact of injuries caused by concussions, blunt trauma, etc.
