Growing demand for protective clothing in various industries like construction, aerospace, the military is considered as the driving factor for the growth of the market. Besides, there is an increasing demand for lightweight and strong materials that offers protection against situations such as extreme temperature and threats which further drive the market for aramid fiber. In addition, expanding the ballistic protection equipment market is also expected to boost the demand for aramid fiber in the production of equipment in the coming years. For instance, the ballistic protection equipment market is growing at a CAGR of more than four percent to reach a market size of US$12.688 billion in 2024 (Source: Knowledge Sourcing Intelligence).

Expanding aerospace and defence industry

Protective clothing is prominent equipment when it comes to protecting the first line of defense and the increasing investment in aerospace and defense around the globe is anticipated to propel the market growth opportunities in the coming years. Also, as government around the globe modernize their military platforms and systems and chase advanced technologies and capabilities, the projected spending on military aircraft, satellites, and spacecraft among other products is also expected to increase which is driving the growth of aramid fiber market. According to the World Bank, military expenditure at current USD in China and India has increased from US$115.712 and US$ 46.09billion in 2010 to US$249.997 and US$66.51 billion in 2018 respectively. In addition, global air transport, passenger carried has also increased from 2.5 billion in 2009 to 4.233 billion in 2018 showing a growth of more than eighty percent (Source: The World Bank).

global aramid fiber market

North America is estimated to hold a significant share in the market.

By geography, the global aramid fiber market has been segmented as North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and Asia Pacific (APAC) regions. North America accounts for the significant share of the global aramid fiber market in 2019 and is projected to grow at a healthy rate throughout the forecast period. This growth is attributed to the presence of big market players coupled with the early adoption of technology in the region. The aramid fiber market in the Asia Pacific region is anticipated to witness exponential growth owing to expanding the automotive and aerospace industry in developing countries like China and India. For instance, automotive production in India has increased from 3,927.411 thousand units in 2011 to 5,174.645 thousand in 2018 (Source: International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers). However, the European aramid fiber market will witness considerable growth during the forecast period owing to the rising manufacturing and automotive industry in the region. Besides, the region is the home of major aerospace players and with the favorable government initiative towards the adoption of lightweight and advance, materials is further expected to boost the market in the region.
