Materiel (from the French for material) is the equipment and supplies in Military and commercial supply chain management.

In a military context, materiel relates to the specific needs of an army to complete a specific mission. The term is also often used in a general sense ("men and materiel") to describe the needs of a functioning army.

Materiel in the commercial distribution context comprises the items being moved by the services of or as the products of the business, as distinct from those involved in operating the business itself.
