Geopolitical tensions, advances in technology, and rising military budgets are expected to bolster the global armored military vehicle market according to IbisWorld. Top growth markets for armored military vehicles over the next decade include France, China, India, Spain, Turkey, and Poland, as per GlobeNewswire.
The US armored vehicle manufacturing industry includes about 50 establishments (single-location companies and units of multi-location companies) with combined annual revenue of about $6 billion.
Competitive Landscape
Demand is driven by military budgets, which typically change with perceived threats to national security. The profitability of individual companies depends on the effective management of subcontractors and raw materials costs and technological expertise. Large companies enjoy economies of scale in design, manufacturing, and purchasing. While small companies often introduce innovation, large companies are often able to adapt more quickly to the evolving demands of modern warfare. Small companies can compete by providing niche products to prime contractors, and by forming joint ventures with larger contractors.
