Law Enforcement Personal Protective Equipment Market Growth & Trends

The global law enforcement personal protective equipment market size is expected to reach USD 5.24 billion by 2028, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. It is expected to expand at a CAGR of 8.3% from 2019 to 2028. Rising awareness pertaining to officer safety in tactical and riot control situations is anticipated to have a positive impact on the market growth.

Growing government procurement globally to produce lightweight advanced protective equipment for law enforcement agencies is expected to boost the market demand over the forecast period. Furthermore, rising government subsidies and donations to law enforcement agencies are likely to boost the demand for personal protective equipment by the officers.

The COVID-19 pandemic outbreak has increased the demand for PPE in law enforcement agencies as they have to constantly be in touch with the public to perform their duties and also implement social distancing and enforce strict lockdowns as directed by local governments, thereby increasing the risk of contracting the virus.

Law enforcement personal protective equipment companies are focusing on collaboration for technological development and innovation. For instance, in September 2021, ArmorSource and SKYDEX partnered together to develop new generation helmet protection for military and law enforcement agencies.
