This industry research report identifies 3M, Honeywell International, MSA, and NBC-Sys as the key vendors in the global military gas mask market. This industry research report also presents a competitive analysis of the market by product type (full face gas mask and half face gas mask) and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the global military gas mask market

Market research analysts at Technavio predict that the global military gas mask market will grow steadily during the next four years and post a CAGR of over 4% by 2021. This market research analysis identifies the growing emphasis on soldier safety as one of the primary growth factors for this market. Since the weapons used in modern-day warfare increasingly include highly-destructive chemical and biological agents that pose considerable risks for soldiers, the coming years will witness a considerable increase in the demand for effective soldier protection equipment. In addition to driving the need to enhance the combat capabilities of armed forces, the ongoing conflicts including the Indo-Pak war over Kashmir, the Lebanon conflict, and the Syrian civil war, are also inducing defense agencies to focus on troop protection measures. As a result, countries across the globe will start focusing on soldier modernization that involves the procurement of safety systems and equipment, consequently fueling the demand for military gas masks.

One of the latest trends that will gain traction in the global military gas mask market in the coming years is the adoption of power-cooled gas masks. Equipped with inbuilt fans to keep the mask pressurized to prevent toxic air from leaking in and provide cooling to soldiers in humid and high heat environments such masks provide high-end safety and comfort to soldiers during critical missions. With the rising demand for such masks manufacturers will start focusing on R&D to introduce innovative products. The Edgewood Chemical Biological Center (ECBC) has started already working on the integration of sensors that can detect when the fan needs to be switched on and when to route airflow.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

Vendor competition in the market is intense since there are several vendors who constantly compete on parameters such as performance, innovation in design and functionality, quality, compliance with key regulations, provision of support services, and cost. There are significant risks for vendors in the market due to the intense competition, rapid advances in technology, and frequent changes in consumer preferences. M&A and increased collaboration with partners across the globe will drive the market during the forecast period.

Segmentation by product type and analysis of the military gas mask market

  • Full face gas mask
  • Half faces gas mask

The full face gas mask segment accounted for the major shares and dominated this market during 2016. These gas masks provide protection to the face, eyes, and the respiratory tract against toxins, radiological fallout particles, and chemical and biological agents. Additionally, the full face gas mask also ensures the highest level of respiratory protection. Such benefits will increase the demand for full face gas masks and as a result, this industry segment will continue to dominate the market in the coming years as well.

Geographical segmentation and analysis of the military gas mask market

  • Americas
  • APAC
  • EMEA

This market study estimates that in terms of geographic regions, the Americas was the major revenue contributor to the market during 2016. However, with the increasing investments from countries such as China towards the procurement of ammunitions, platforms, highly-advanced lethal weapons, and effective personal protective equipment (PPE) and initiatives from the Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) of India to develop gas masks using membranes that are impermeable to noxious gases, APAC will dominate the market by the end of the forecast period.
