The concept of the military parachute is typically attributed to dropping soldiers on a battlefield without needing a landing strip for the airplane. Parachutes are also used by the modern military to drop supplies and equipment. Different types of parachutes are used for different purposes, such as round parachutes used by armed forces to dispatch large airborne units. Similarly, the square parachute is used to dispatch small specialized units. Presently, advances in airborne technologies have also improved the mechanism of action of parachutes and have made them safer and more reliable, benefitting users of military parachutes. For instance, in March 2020, Spekon was awarded a contract by the Bulgarian air force to supply its KB-5 series of brake parachutes for the MiG-29 aircraft. These parachutes were used to reduce the length of the aircraft on landing.

In addition, the military parachute market has witnessed significant growth in recent years, owing to the increase in demand for UAV parachutes in military applications and the growing use of military parachutes for troop landing and aerial delivery in emergencies (disaster, war, and epidemic) Furthermore, the companies operating in the market have adopted partnerships, investments, and product launches to increase their market share and expand their geographical presence. For instance, in 2020, the Indian DRDO developed the P7 Heavy Drop System that can drop military stores up to a 7-ton weight class from IL-76 aircraft. This system is fully indigenous and manufactured by L&T, which makes the platform system, while the round parachutes are manufactured by Ordnance Factory.

The factors such as surge in security concerns due to territorial conflicts and global terrorism and an increase in demand for UAV parachutes in military applications supplement the growth of the military parachute market. However, variation in testing standards & methodologies and lack of skilled forces for operating parachutes are the factors expected to hamper the growth of the market. In addition, rapid technological advancement in parachutes and increase in defense expenditure by governments of major economies creates market opportunities for the key players operating in the military parachute industry.
