Bulletproof Market size was valued at USD 7,453.8 million in 2022 and is poised to grow at a CAGR of 8.2% from 2023-2029. Bulletproof Glass is made up of a different layer of polycarbonate plastics that is optically transparent and strong and particularly resistant to penetration by any projectile. It is made up of a combination of two or more soft and hard glasses. The softer layer makes it more elastic, so it flexes but doesn’t shatter, whereas the harder one makes it hold together. According to a study conducted in the UK, bulletproof glasses usage has increased significantly in the last five years from 7.5 million to 17 million. This huge increase is due to the increased crime trend during the recession. The most likely reason for the demand for bulletproof glass is the availability of handguns in society that are used for self-defense. The ever-increasing safety concerns, increased terrorist attacks, and crime rates in stadiums and arenas, convenience stores and gas station, financial institutions, lodging facilities, and school are some factors that lead to the increase in the level of the bulletproof glass market. With the increased need for increased safety in military equipment worldwide, the bulletproof market plays a vital role in meeting the needs and standards of every country. However, the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted the import and export of the bulletproof glass market. Other than that, the declining defense budget of some countries, the higher price of raw material, and difficulty in their installation has affected the bulletproof glass market negatively. However, strong demand from retail shops, banks, military, government bodies, and liquor stores has led to a tremendous increase in the bulletproof market post-pandemic and is expected to burgeon the market in the forecast years.
