The global military gas mask market is set to gain momentum from the increasing need to protect homeland security and defense forces personnel from harmful gases, such as chlorine and sulfur. This information is given in an upcoming report by Fortune Business Insights™, titled, “Military Gas Mask Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Mask Type (Full face Gas Mask, Half face Gas Mask), By Product Type (Non-Powered, Powered), By Application (Chemical, Biological, Nuclear, Radiological Defense) and Regional Forecast, 2022-2029.” The report further mentions that military gas masks have a flexible face cover, filter cartridge canisters, straps, and transparent eye lenses.

Impact of Russia-Ukraine War Implication

The war crisis and sanctions have put a strain on global investment, trade, and economic activity. Therefore, skepticism and uncertainty remain prevalent regarding the conflict, its potential reach, and its longevity. Accordingly, the restoration of normal relations among partners could prove be a sign of improvement. There is hardly any sector that the war has left untouched, especially aggravating the business landscape of sectors ranging from aerospace to oil & gas. Amidst prevailing challenges, stakeholders are gearing to turn adversities into opportunities. However, soaring military aid for Ukraine could provide impetus to stakeholders. Meanwhile, it is to be noted that the relevant sanction could augment operating costs and disrupt industries.

Drivers & Restraints-

Increasing Political Conflicts Worldwide to Propel Growth

The rising unrest and terrorism in several countries across the globe, as well as political conflicts would create high demand for military gas masks in the upcoming years. Also, government bodies are investing huge sums in enhancing soldiers’ safety. At the same time, they are trying to protect them from technologically advanced explosive attacks by insurgents.

Also, military forces often come across numerous chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) threats, which, in turn, would require innovative troop protection measures. These factors are projected to bolster the military gas mask market growth in the near future. However, using military gas masks in oxygen-deficient atmospheres can cause difficulties in breathing. It may hinder growth.

Regional Insights-

North America to Dominate Stoked by Upgradation of Military Forces in the U.S.

Geographically, North America holds the largest military gas mask market share at present. This growth is mainly attributable to the increasing upgradation programs of first responder protection systems and military forces in the U.S. Besides, the presence of numerous prominent military gas mask manufacturers, such as AirBoss of America Corp., Avon Protection, Honeywell International Inc., and Johnson Controls in the region would aid growth.

On the other hand, Asia Pacific is set to showcase considerable growth throughout the forthcoming years because of the increasing modernization of warfare technologies in developing countries, such as China and India. In Europe, the market would grow moderately on account of the rising hostile agitations, riots, and tensions between countries. Coupled with these, the surging military expenses in the region would also augment the demand for military gas masks in this region.
