Silicon Carbide ceramic armor comprises a major share of the ceramic armor market in terms of value and volume.
Silicon carbide is one of the key ceramic materials for producing ceramic armor. Silicon carbide is extensively used in armor for protection against larger projectiles. The high demand for body armor that provides higher defense and lower weight has increased the market for silicon carbide industry globally. Silicon carbide ceramic material is the most preferred material for defending rifle bullets because of its high strength and hardness. The material is less expensive and offers higher mechanical properties.

Body armor product type led the global ballistic composites market in terms of value and volume
Ceramic armor are significantly utilized for the manufacturing of vehicle armors as these armors provide a high-level of protection against ballistic threats. Moreover, the use of ceramic armor in the manufacturing of vehicle armor provides them with lightweight, high-strength and corrosion resistance properties, which helps in easy maneuverability and ease of maintenance of vehicle armors. The demand for vehicle armor is expected to be driven by several military programs, such as the HMMWV Modernized Expanded Capacity Vehicle (MECV), the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) - and a replacement for the M113 Armored Personnel Carrier, and the Ground Combat Vehicle (GCV).
