By threat level, IV and above segment is expected to lead the market during the forecast period.

On the basis of threat level, the ballistic protection market has been segmented into II and IIA, III and IIIA and IV and above. A level IV hard plate is designed to defeat armor-piercing projectiles. It is tested with a single impact of test calibers specified in the NIJ standard, which represent common threats to the law enforcement and security community, especially in the US. Other countries may have different threat levels to defeat. Level IV ballistic armors are designed to offer protection against large, high-velocity bullets. These armors can stop rounds fired by rifles and submachine guns and are mostly used by tactical police teams and the military.

By application, homeland security segment is expected to grow at highest CAGR during the forecast period.

During the forecast period, the homeland security segment is projected to grow at a higher rate than the military segment. Homeland security personnel that are deployed wear ballistic-resistant body armor to safeguard against specific ballistic threats. To maintain safety during any mission, homeland security professionals wear personal protection equipment, such as body vests, ballistic helmets, and gloves. Ballistic helmets are designed to shield the wearer against fragmentation and small-arms threats. Because they are reinforced by ceramics and thermoplastics, the fighting systems employed by homeland security officers are ballistic resistant.
