Global Armored Vehicle Market Size to Reach USD 41.27 Billion in 2032 | Emergen Research

The armored vehicle market experienced strong growth in 2022, driven by geopolitical tensions, counterterrorism efforts, and technological advancements. Ongoing conflicts and defense modernization initiatives further fueled demand for these versatile vehicles.

Vancouver, Oct. 30, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The global armored vehicle market size was USD 24.92 Billion in 2022 and is expected to register a revenue CAGR of 5.2% during the forecast period. A comprehensive market research report highlights that the market is expected to register a revenue CAGR during the forecast period, driven by several key factors.

Geopolitical Tensions: Increasing geopolitical tensions and conflicts worldwide have boosted the demand for armored vehicles for security and military operations.

Counterterrorism: The ongoing fight against terrorism has contributed to the rising demand for armored vehicles.

Technological Advancements: Recent upgrades and developments in military equipment, including technologies like reactive armor and advanced autoloaders, have significantly impacted the market.

Global Investments: Commercial and technological advancements, coupled with increased investments in research and development activities, have transformed the defense vehicle industry.

Demand for Active Protection Systems: Despite a trend toward mobility with lighter protection, investments in cost-effective and precise active protection systems for Main Battle Tanks (MBTs) continue to drive market growth.

The conflict between Russia and Ukraine in 2022 had a significant impact on the European defense sector. Several countries joined forces to support Ukraine, resulting in an increased demand for armored vehicles. The United States provided Ukraine with security assistance, including T-72B tanks, in collaboration with the Netherlands and the Czech Republic. This situation has led to a surge in armored vehicle usage across Europe, particularly among NATO countries. Hybrid technology is progressively reducing the military’s dependence on fossil fuels, improving silent mobility, and offering operational advantages. The development of hybrid-electric engine technology has gained momentum, with the U.S. Army and academic institutions collaborating on research. The transition to complete electrification is on the horizon, with vehicles like the electric Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (eJLTV) making their debut in the market.
