There are two types of body armor: soft body armor and hard body armor. Body armor is rated in terms of its competency to stop bullets. There are two recognized standards: the international standard set down by the National Institute of Justice and the UK standards regulated by the Home Office Scientific Development Branch.

One major trend in the market is the improvements in materials. Vendors have started using special fabrics to improve soldiers' performance and also to protect the soldiers and police officers who encounter blade attacks.

According to the report, one of the main drivers in this market is the increased development of body armor programs. Countries such as the US, France, and the UK are developing next-generation body armor systems by replacing the body armor systems and components currently worn by their military forces.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges in this market is a shortage of body armor and personal protection equipment. There is high demand for body armor and personal protection equipment from developing countries but there is a shortage of supply. Such issues have resulted in injuries and death of many soldiers in the past.
