The Revolution of Bulletproof Glass Market: Sales of Bulletproof Glass to Grow 10.6% Annually from 2024 to 2034

(via Future Market Insights)

The global bulletproof glass market is witnessing significant growth, driven by rising security concerns across various sectors. Increased demand from financial institutions, government buildings, and automotive industries is fueling market expansion. North America was the largest region in the bullet proof glass market in 2023.

The global bulletproof glass market size is projected to reach US$ 4.6 billion in 2024. The demand for bullet-resistant glass is expected to witness a robust CAGR of 10.6% from 2024 to 2034. By 2034, the sales of bulletproof glass are anticipated to reach a valuation of US$ 12.7 billion.

The rise in violent incidents in certain regions has created opportunities for the ballistic glass market to expand. The growing demand for premium automobiles and the developing global automotive industry mainly surge the bulletproof security glass market expansion. The market’s value is also expected to be influenced by the expanding adoption of bulletproof glass in the aerospace and marine industries, which operate in high-pressure settings and need ballistic-resistant glass that can sustain high pressure.

The demand for bulletproof glasses is set to grow due to growing concerns about public safety and security and the growing number of uses for these glasses. The bulletproof security glass industry is expected to develop due to rising defense spending in emerging economies and strong demand for luxury cars and residential constructions.

The increasing cost of raw materials, such as industrial plastic polycarbonates used to produce armored vehicle glass, is reducing demand. The growing cost of raw materials is probably going to be a limiting factor in bulletproof glass market expansion.

The substantial costs associated with the glass armor technology, research, development, and manufacturing of bulletproof glass are predicted to work against the market. This raises difficulties about the bulletproof glass market’s growth rate.

Regional Outlook

The bulletproof security glass market is expanding in North America due to rising investments in infrastructure development projects and the growing adoption of bulletproof glass in luxury residential buildings and automotive applications.

The adoption of bulletproof glass in commercial and residential buildings is growing in the region due to technological developments and increased urbanization, especially in highly populated cities like Shanghai and Tokyo. Growing security concerns in developing economies like China and India are boosting demand for fortified infrastructure, which in turn accelerates the bulletproof glass market in the Asia Pacific region.

In government buildings, financial institutions, and transportation hubs, the demand for bulletproof glass is rising due to strict safety standards and an increase in terrorist threats throughout Europe.
