LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global bulletproof helmet market report. This research report also lists 10 other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

Competitive vendor landscape

According to the research analysis, there is moderate competition in the global bulletproof helmet market as there are only a handful of global players, who have a leading and growing presence in the market, since they cater to the defense, aerospace, and homeland security forces across the globe. However, there are many regional vendors that offer low-cost products. Many small but successful companies offering bulletproof helmets are present across the market.

Although vendors are adopting advanced material and processing technologies that enable them to offer high-performance products, the key basis for competition, especially in developing countries, is price, whereas most end-users in developed countries are technology-sensitive and opt for highly technological products, which results in cut-throat competition amongst the existing and established players.

“Currently, there is high demand for premium-priced products among end-users, which are commonly the armed forces. Thus, key vendors in the market focus on innovation in design and functionality, and offer support services for ballistic equipment,” says Sarah Haque, a lead analyst from Technavio.
