Gunshot Detection System Market Trends

  • Rising adoption of IoT to drive the market growth

The modern IT-dominated world is shifting people's preferences towards automation-based solutions and services. Due to its cutting-edge and novel uses, this has resulted in a greater focus on IoT-based gadgets. IoT is a technology that allows for the internet or internetworking to be provided for practically all applications, including cellphones, microwaves, wearable technologies, and buildings. To connect all of these items to a single network, IoT uses electrical software, sensors, and actuators. The Internet of Things (IoT) uses various sensors, including temperature, proximity, and touch. IoT-based devices support both person-to-computer and machine-to-machine (M2M) communication.

Furthermore, over the past several years, there has been an upsurge in shooting events in North America, which has increased the demand for gunshot detection systems in the region. For instance, in June 2021, research from the Everytown Research organization stated that, between 2009 and 2020, there were 20 mass shootings in the United States, resulting in 1,363 fatalities and 97 injuries, or 20 shootings on average each year. These figures are astounding because they only account for a small portion of the people whose lives have been irrevocably altered due to a mass shooting that has paralyzed an entire community with dread and grief. In addition, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention organization revealed in 2021 that in 2020, there were 24,292 suicides and 19,384 homicides by firearm. As a result, the market CAGR for gunshot detection system is anticipated to develop over the projected period due to increased gunshot incidences.

However, Gunshot detection systems are currently in high demand because law enforcement, security organisations, and military forces use them. The system supplies the police agency with the data after quickly detecting and analyzing it. For instance, a $2.5 million contract for gun detection technology was awarded to ShotSpotter, Inc. by the Sacramento City Council in June 2020. Through 2025, this will enable the Sacramento Police Department to keep track of shootings in three unnamed places. As a result, the gunshot detection system market revenue is anticipated to develop during the forecast period due to the rise in their utilization.
