This market research report identifies players like ArmorSource, BAE, Gentex, and Honeywell to be the key vendors in the global ACH market. This research report also presents a detailed segmentation of the market by end-use (defense and homeland security) and geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the global advanced combat helmet (ACH) market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global advanced combat helmet (ACH) market to grow at a CAGR of almost 4% by 2020. Increased warfare, armed conflicts, cross-border tensions, and conflicts between countries are propelling the demand for ballistic protection equipment such as ACH and lightweight advanced combat helmets (LW-ACH). The market is also witnessing an increased demand for protective fabric in these ballistic helmets, which can be used against cut wounds. Growing concerns about the combatant's protection have compelled several manufacturers to focus on the development of breathable and fireproof army helmets that can protect the wearer from slash-type attacks. These army helmets are also compatible with the current night vision goggles (NVG), communications packages, nuclear, biological, and chemical (NBC) defense equipment, and body armor.

The manufacturers are shifting toward the usage of advanced, strong, and lightweight materials such as aramid fibers, titanium, aluminum, ceramic, and polymer to reduce weight and increase the strength of the armor system.  Such light-weight materials enhance mobility and flexibility of ACH and provide effective protection. At present, the UN and NATO peacekeeping troops are using ceramic-plated armor vehicles to protect themselves against mines, direct fire, artillery, and mortar shrapnel.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

This market is highly competitive, and the vendors compete on the basis of cost, product quality, reliability, and aftersales service to gain traction. To sustain themselves in the market, vendors are offering cost-effective and high-quality lightweight material helmets to the end users. Mergers and acquisitions coupled with increased collaboration with alliance partners worldwide will drive the ACH market during the forecast period. Vendors in the market are also investing in developing lightweight, cost-efficient, and effective ACH for the military and law enforcement forces.

Leading vendors in the market are -

  • ArmorSource
  • BAE
  • Gentex
  • Honeywell

Other prominent vendors in the ACH market include ArmorWorks Enterprises, Ceradyne, Eagle Industries, Morgan Advanced Materials, Point Blank Enterprises, and Survitec Group.

Segmentation by end-use and analysis of ACH market

  • Defense
  • Homeland security

The defense segment will continue to dominate the ACH market during the forecast period and is anticipated to occupy more than 75% of the total market share.  The growing need to strengthen regulations and actions on the use of guns and ammunitions and increase the efficiency of police officers and their safety equipment are driving market growth during the forecast period. Several benefits offered by ACH to armed personnel will result in higher investments and greater procurement during the forecast period.

Geographical segmentation and analysis of ACH market

  • Americas
  • APAC
  • EMEA

During 2015, the Americas dominated the ACH market and accounted for around 44% of the overall market revenue. Factors such as rising terrorist threats and increasing demand for ballistic protection armor for the army in war zones have propelled the use of ACH in the region. South America shows strong potential for market growth because countries in this region are increasingly adopting modernization programs to improve their armed forces.
