Report ID: 134050 3300 Chemical & Material 377 240 Pages 4.6 (37)

Market Overview:

The global ballistic nylon market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in the market can be attributed to the increasing demand for ballistic nylon from various end-use industries, such as automobile tires, bulletproof vest, and others. In terms of type, 420d is expected to lead the global ballistic nylon market during the forecast period due to its high tensile strength and durability. However, 480d is projected to grow at a higher CAGR than 420d during the forecast period owing to its superior abrasion resistance properties.

Global Ballistic Nylon Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Ballistic nylon is a heavy, tightly woven nylon fabric used for making bulletproof vests and other protective clothing.


420d is a type of nylon that has been heat treated and processed. It has high tensile strength, modulus, low elongation at break, good abrasion resistance and good chemical resistance. The ballistic performance of the material is very similar to that of teflon but with better heat treatment properties.


480d is a new type of nylon that has high tensile strength and abrasion resistance. It also has better flexibility than other Nylons. The ballistic performance of 480d is very close to that of 7N but at a much lower weight, which makes it an ideal material for use in protective clothing and soft body armor applications.

Application Insights:

The global ballistic nylon market is segmented by application into automobile tires, bulletproof vests, and others. The automobile tires segment accounted for the largest share in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. This can be attributed to increasing demand for high-performance polymers with enhanced properties such as abrasion resistance, chemical stability and heat stability from various industries including automotive.

The bulletproof vest segment is also estimated to witness significant growth during the forecast period owing to rising use of lightweight materials in manufacturing body armor products. Furthermore, growing concerns regarding personal safety have led people across the world to invest more in protective clothing including bulletproof jackets and pants manufactured from composites such as ballistic nylon fibers.  Increasing demand for lightweight material with superior impact strength that does not reduce flexibility when impacted at moderate velocity will drive industry growth over the coming years as well.

Regional Analysis:

The Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region accounted for a share of more than 60% of total global revenue in 2017, which can be attributed to high product demand from bulletproof vests and tires application. China is one of the largest producers as well as consumers of nylon 6,6 products globally. High production capacity along with large-scale manufacturing activities undertaken by Chinese companies are projected to boost regional growth during the forecast period.

North America emerged as another promising regional market for ballistic nylon in 2017 owing to growing product demand from tire industry on account of increasing automobile sales across U.S., coupled with stringent safety norms implemented by regulatory bodies like National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Department Of Transportation (DOT). Moreover, rising military expenditure undertaken by countries including U.S.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for ballistic nylon from the military and law enforcement sectors as it offers high resistance to abrasion and tears.
  • Growing popularity of ballistic nylon in sports equipment such as cycling helmets, skis, snowboards, and mountain bikes owing to its lightweight properties and durability.
  • Rising demand for ballistic nylon in industrial applications such as conveyor belts, hoses, belting straps, and aprons due to its superior strength-to-weight ratio.
  • Increasing use of ballistic nylon in medical devices such as catheters, sutures, stents etc., due to its biocompatibility properties.
