Global Coated Fabrics for Defense to Remain a High-Volume-Low Value Market Through 2028

The improved support by the government of various countries to provide better products to their military has facilitated a moderate revenue growth in the global coated fabrics for defense market, which is expected to reach a valuation of over US$ 5,200 Mn by the end of 2028. A recent forecast by Future Market Insights projects the market to grow at a CAGR of 2.9% during the forecast period.

Recent findings from a month-long deep sea exploration in the South China Sea have shown astounding results pertaining to new materials that can be used to manufacture military and aerospace equipment. The military seeks constant support of such developments to support their critical day-to-day activities. The impact of the recent developments taking place in the sector have impacted the coated fabrics market, as these fabrics are used for different products in the defense industry.

Thermoplastics to Emerge As a Viable Alternative to Rubber for Reducing Fabric Weight

Different materials are being incorporated in various military products and equipment due to their special properties. Thermoplastics is now being given more preference in the global market over rubber as it is considered lighter and more durable. Thermoplastics is also considered to be more efficient as it possesses other special properties such as chemical resistance, strong environment sustainability and convenience in opening and folding. As a case in point, the U.S Army is working on a lightweight hot weather alternative to the current Army Combat Uniform (ACU), which weighs about 1.4 pounds and has a lot of pocket and multiple layers of fabrics.
