Key Trends and Analysis of the Global Bulletproof Glass Market:
Key Takeaways of the Market:
- Bulletproof glass is made up of various transparent materials with an arrangement of two or more types of glass, one hard and one soft, which can resist any king of damage from bullets or small projectiles. The number of layers stacked depend on the level of security of the glass for which it is being used. The refractive index of the different types of glass used in the manufacturing of bulletproof glass should be identical, which in turn makes the glass transparent.
- Among end-user industry, the automotive industry segment is expected to be the fastest growing segment, owing to growing use of armored vehicles to prevent blast attacks. Bulletproof glass manufacturers are focusing on developing new bulletproof security glass to cater to increasing security concerns such as blast attacks, or damage from small projectiles and bullets. For instance, Tyneside Safety Glass, a U.K. based automotive glass shop, provides numerous types of bulletproof security glass which includes flat panel glass and curved glass constructions for motorsport vehicles, hobby kit cars, production cars, and recycling collection lorries among others.
- On the basis of geography, the global bulletproof glass market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, Middle East, and Africa. According to ’ analysis, North America dominated the global bulletproof glass market in 2018, owing to high demand for bulletproof glass products in the U.S from different end-use industries such as automobile, defense, and the private security industry. The rising number of armed robberies in the region, as well as its flourishing defense industry accounted for high demand of bulletproof glass in the North America region. Furthermore, key manufacturers of bulletproof glass in the U.S and Canada are focused on investing in research and development activities, and expanding their operations to develop innovative bulletproof security glass, which is expected to drive the North America bulletproof security glass market during the forecast period.
