Military Parachute Market: Dynamics

Increase in military expenditure and rise in border conflicts (which results in an increase in the use of unmannded aerial vehicle for ISR activities) are altogether spurring the demand for Military Parachutes. Moreover, increasing demand for these parachutes from countries, such as China, India, the U.S., Germany and others, is also supporting the demand in the Military Parachute market. Increase in spending for personal protective equipment especially for Military personnel is expected to positively impact demand for military parachutes.

However, varied testing standards and methodologies, flammability standards are not clearly defined and different suppliers (to different armies) use different standards and testing methods to specify their products. For instance, the U.K. & European Union follow BS EN or BS EN ISO, the U.S. follows ASTM, ISO or NFPA standards and other developed nations have their own testing protocols. Therefore, it becomes difficult for manufacturers to supply their products to the global market.

This is an important factor hindering the growth of the market. Moreover, new technologies are coming in market which are helping customers repair their Military Parachutes instead of going for replacement. This is another factor hindering the growth of the market.
