Riot control systems consist of various agents, such as irritants, lacrimators and tear gases, for controlling, dispersing or arresting the individuals involved in protests and riots. They are primarily used by law enforcement agencies and military forces to prevent and control the instances of riots or other public violence. These agents cause pain, burning sensation and excessive discomfort when exposed to the skin or mucous membranes. In comparison to other liquid agents, riot control systems are solids with low vapor pressures and are dispersed as fine particles through small hand-held spray cans, large spray tanks, smoke grenades and water cannons. Apart from this, these systems also include non-lethal equipment, such as helmets, body armors, knee pads, neck protectors, riot shields and gas masks.
The market is primarily driven by increasing instances of communal violence and protests across the globe. The growing need for efficient public management solutions is also acting as another major growth-inducing factor. Riot control systems enable the authorities to control the crowds and prevent instances of riots or other activities that can disrupt law and order. Furthermore, the implementation of favorable government policies to diminish domestic insurgencies and promote national security is also augmenting the market growth. Other factors, such as widespread adoption of technologically advanced weapons and security solutions, control systems integration with the cloud, Internet of Things (IoT) and machine learning (ML) solutions and are expected to drive the market further in the coming years.
