Ballistic composites constitute fiber reinforced with matrix in the ratio of 4:1. The major fibers used in the ballistic composite market are aramid, UHMWPE, and S-glass fibers. The major matrix types used in the ballistic composite include polymer matrix, polymer-ceramic matrix and metal matrix. The ballistic composites have an ability to absorb the kinetic energy of the attack caused from projectile such as shot guns and long guns. These composites offer high level of protection against the ballistic threat such as bullets, and exploding munitions. The ballistic composites are lightweight and offer high level of convenience in mobility to the warriors wearing them. Note: *Core competencies of the companies are determined in terms of key developments and strategies adopted by them to sustain their position in the market.
