Major developed economies, such as the US, the UK, and France keep on doing R&D for the development of advanced ballistic protection equipment for their soldiers, vehicles, and law enforcement forces whereas major developing economies are generating healthy demand for ballistic protection equipment. For instance, the Indian government is in the process of procuring 186 thousand of bulletproof jackets for their soldiers.
