Global Military Apparel Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Military apparel is clothing that is typically worn by military personnel. This type of clothing can include uniforms, hats, boots, and other accessories. Military apparel is important because it helps to identify military personnel and can also provide protection from the elements.


Outerwear is the second largest consumed category of clothing globally, only behind apparel. The global outerwear market size was valued at USD 485 billion in 2016 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX% over the forecast period. Increasing demand for durable and high performance fabrics such as polyester, nylon, cotton & wool blends along with technical innovations are some major factors driving growth in this sector.


Underwear is a type of clothing designed to be worn under other garments, primarily shirts and pants. It can also be used by itself as an outer garment. Underwear can comprise a wide range of fabrics such as cotton, polyester, nylon, silk and wool among others along with various types of closures such as zippers and buttons. The primary function of underwear is to provide comfort and protection from the external environment.

Application Insights:

The air force application segment led the global military apparel market in 2017. The growth of this segment can be attributed to the increasing defense budget of countries, such as U.S., China and India, which are major consumers of military aircraft and helicopters. Furthermore, growing cross-border conflicts has resulted in an increased demand for combat clothing among air forces across the world.

The land army application segment is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to rising need for advanced protective headgears among soldiers on battlefields globally. Moreover, government initiatives towards providing modern clothing to its soldiers are likely to propel industry growth over next seven years globally.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global military apparel market in 2017. The U.S., being the largest consumer of military clothing globally, has a strong influence on global industry growth. Moreover, high investments by countries such as Canada and Mexico to procure combat-ready apparel is expected to drive demand over the forecast period.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to witness significant growth over the next eight years owing to increasing defense budgets of various economies including China and India among others that are major consumers of combat clothing worldwide; thus driving demand for garments in this region significantly higher than other regions during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030  (forecast). Furthermore, growing geopolitical tensions between various countries across Asia Pacific region will boost product sales further boosting overall revenue share during same period (forecast).

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for military apparel from the emerging economies due to rising security concerns
  • Growing popularity of camouflage clothing among civilians for fashion and outdoor activities
  • Proliferation of online stores that offer a wide range of military apparel at competitive prices
  • Increased spending on defense by developed countries to counter the growing threats from terrorist organizations and other hostile nations
