Non-Lethal Weapons Global Scenario, Market Size, Outlook, Trend and Forecast, 2016 – 2025

Global Non-Lethal Weapons is projected to be valued $6 Billion by 2024; with a CAGR of 6.1% from 2017 to 2025. Non-Lethal Weapons are the arms used for non-lethal purposes to control both civilians and soldiers. These weapons give army men uniform alternatives between “shouting and shooting”, while reducing the risk of fatalities and permanent injury to non-combatants. Non-lethal armaments are capable in the use of a variety of conflict scenarios, from humanitarian and peace operations to combat operations. Various types of non-lethal weapons, operating on different technologies such as chemicals, mechanical and kinetic, electrical and radiation and others have now arrived in the global market.

Increased demand for crowd control weapons, adoption of technologically enhanced product developments, and increasing military expenditure by countries are the major factors driving the global non-lethal weapons market. Moreover, deployment of military in non-combat zones has also fuelled the market growth. However, high price of these weapons is expected to restrain the market growth. Advancement in various scientific fields, such as chemicals, electronics, electromagnetic, computers and acoustics would provide several growth opportunities for the market in coming years.

The global non-lethal weapons market is bifurcated by products, technology, application and geography. By product, the global non-lethal market is further segmented into directed energy weapons, conducted energy weapons, gases and sprays, water weapons, and explosives. By technology, the market is segmented as mechanical and kinetic, chemical, acoustics, electromagnetic, and others. By application, the market is categorized into military, law enforcement agencies, and civilians. By product type, explosives accounted for the largest market share in 2016, and are anticipated to continue its dominance during the forecast period 2016-2024. Mechanical and kinetic dominated the technology segment in 2016. 

Based on geography, the global non-lethal weapons market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and RoW.
