Non-lethal weapons (NLWs) are intended to incapacitate people and equipment. They assist in minimizing fatalities, permanent injury to personnel, and undesired damage to property in the targeted area or environment. They also aid in resolving escalation of force situations, creating a direct effect on the personnel, and providing psychological effects. As a result, they are extensively adopted for performing military policing activities, such as crowd control or dispersal, protecting convoys and other forms of route control, moving or guarding prisoners of war, and keeping security details or guard duty.
Non-Lethal Weapons Market Trends:
Due to stringent regulations implemented by governing agencies of numerous countries, there is a significant rise in the instances of unrest around the world. This represents one of the key factors catalyzing the demand for weapons with fewer risks of death. Moreover, as NLWs are small, affordable, portable, and act as critical elements in providing personal security for the security personnel, their adoption is increasing as a legal solution for self-defense. Besides this, there is a considerable increase in territorial conflicts across the globe, which is contributing to market growth. NLWs help in controlling a furious crowd and undertaking military operations that require tasers, flash-bang, and smoke grenades, rubber bullets, and tear gas without causing any casualties. Furthermore, leading market players are improving their product portfolio by integrating advanced technologies, such as laser interdiction systems, long-range acoustic devices, enhanced underwater loudhailers, acoustic hailing devices, and modular crowd control munitions. Other major factors include rising military expenditures and the introduction of sound weapons that target people or groups in mobs or protests are anticipated to impel the market.
