Global Pepper Sprays Market to Reach US$ 84.6 Billion by 2032, Impelled by Rising Need for Personal Safety

June 12, 2023 | Retail

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Pepper Sprays Market Report by Type (Stream, Forced Cone, Foggers, and Others), End Use (Personal Defense, Law Enforcement Defense), Distribution Channel (Specialty Shops, Online Stores), and Region 2024-2032," the global pepper sprays market size reached US$ 33.9 Billion in 2023. Pepper spray is a non-lethal self-defense tool designed to incapacitate an attacker by causing temporary discomfort and inflammation of the eyes, skin, and respiratory system. It is widely used by individuals, law enforcement officers, and security personnel for personal safety and crowd control purposes. They are produced from a concentrated extract derived from hot chili peppers, specifically the Capsicum genus. The active ingredient in the formulation of pepper spray is capsaicin, a chemical compound responsible for the intense burning sensation. When sprayed into the face of an attacker, pepper spray causes immediate and severe irritation to the eyes, leading to temporary blindness, tearing, and swelling. It also causes a burning sensation on the skin and a constriction of the airways, resulting in coughing, choking, and shortness of breath.

Global Pepper Sprays Market Trends:

The global market is primarily driven by the rising need for personal safety and self-defense among the masses. As crime rates and concerns about personal security continue to persist, individuals, particularly women, seek non-lethal means of protection. This is creating a positive market outlook for pepper sprays as they provide an effective tool for self-defense, empowering individuals to protect themselves in potentially dangerous situations. Also, the increasing crime rates, including incidents of assault, robbery, and harassment, are providing a boost to the demand for pepper sprays as they offer a non-lethal means of self-protection that can provide a sense of security and confidence to potential victims. Moreover, the widespread utilization of pepper sprays by private security firms for crowd control, restraining suspects, and maintaining public order is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Furthermore, rapid urbanization trends and the rising population in cities contribute to safety concerns. Some of the other factors driving the market include easy product availability via online and offline organized distribution channels and continual innovations in a spray formulation. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 84.6 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 10.4% during 2024-2032.
