 According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Smoke Grenade Market Report by Product (Burst Smoke Grenade, Wire Pull Smoke Grenade, Micro Smoke Grenade, and Others), Application (Signaling, Screening and Obscuring, Riot Control, and Others), End User (Military and Defense, Law Enforcement, and Others), and Region 2024-2032," the global smoke grenade market size reached US$ 511.3 Million in 2023. A smoke grenade is a handheld substance designed to produce a dense cloud of smoke upon ignition. The device consists of a canister filled with a mixture of chemicals that, upon activation, generate a large amount of smoke. It is designed for outdoor usage to control the crowd with a high-volume continuous burn that expels its payload through gas ports located on the top of the canister. It has a more extended range and thus spreads into a larger area than normal smoke bombs, which are widely used to signal their team members. It is used to obscure the vision of an enemy or create a cover for advancing troops. It can also mark a landing zone for helicopters or signal for help in emergencies. Besides, it has become a symbol of danger, espionage, and tactical operations and is often used to create a dramatic effect in action scenes. 

Global Smoke Grenade Market Trends: 

The increasing incidences of war, crimes, and conflicts between several countries are driving the global market. Furthermore, the rising popularity of airsoft and paintball games that uses smoke grenades for added realism is fuelling the market. Besides, the wide utilization of smoke grenades in non-lethal crowd control measures, especially during riots or demonstrations, is supporting the demand as they can be used to disperse crowds, provide cover for law enforcement personnel, or create confusion among rioters. In line with this, the growing adoption of smoke grenades in sports and entertainment events to create special effects in concerts, festivals, and other events is acting as another growth-inducing factor. In response to the escalating demand, several major companies are designing smoke grenades that are safer to use and handle, thus providing a boost to the market. Along with this, continual product innovations, such as the development of advanced handheld multi-shot grenade launchers, are also acting as a significant growth-inducing factor. Apart from this, the escalating demand for eco-friendly smoke grenades due to the rising awareness about toxic contamination is creating a positive market outlook. Moreover, the growing usage of harmless smoke grenades for special effects in media, movies, and television shows is impacting the market favorably. The market is further driven by other factors, such as reduction in smoke grenade production costs, widespread product utilization in training exercises, and increasing security concerns among the masses. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 795.6 Million by 2032, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 4.9% during 2024-2032.
