Global Non-lethal weapons market is valued at approximately USD 8.37 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 8.2 % over the forecast period 2021-2027. Non-lethal weapons, such as tasers, flash-bang & smoke grenades, rubber bullets, and tear gas, are extremely useful in managing enraged crowds and conducting military operations because they only cause minor to moderate harm to people’s bodies. The world is confronted with many conflicts that occur in all countries. Whether it is the recurrent battles in the Middle East or Asia, or in the United States, violent incidents have occurred in recent years. Non-lethal weapons are ideal for law enforcement authorities to control mobs without causing rioters to lose their lives. Non-lethal weapons are being adopted by law enforcement agencies in order to reduce harm and injury. For instance, in February 2021, San Jose police began using non-lethal weapons as a substitute for guns in crowd control operations. Furthermore, the Dallas City Council approved a $8 million spend over five years for less-than-lethal police ammunition and supplies, such as rubber bullets and tear gas, in December 2020. Non-lethal weaponry aid in crowd control and defense operations while minimizing casualties. As a result, demand for non-lethal weaponry is likely to rise over the forecast period. However, stringent environmental and governmental regulations may impede market growth over the forecast period of 2021-2027.
