Webbing Market Is Expected To Be Flourished By Increasing Demand From Military And Defense Industries

Webbing is a type of narrow fabric products that are thickly woven and used to make carrying devices such as backpack straps, climbing harness, utility belts and others. It is widely used in military and recreational activities due to its high strength to weight ratio. Webbing finds applications in parachutes, climbing equipment, military equipment belts and load bearing systems. The growing defense budgets of countries is expected to boost the demand for webbing from military and defense industries globally.

The global Webbing Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 941.85 million  in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 18%  over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
