However, factors such as stringent regulations and subsequent delays in procurement processes hinders the market growth to a certain extent. Meanwhile, increasing research activities by many countries throughout the world, to develop effective less lethal technology create promising growth opportunities for the non-lethal weapons market.


The market is segmented by type, disabling mechanism, end-user, and region. Based on type, the non-lethal weapons market is divided into direct contact non-lethal weapons directed energy non-lethal weapons. During the forecast period, the direct energy segment is likely to witness the highest CAGR as it is more efficient in riot control operations. Based on disabling mechanism, the non-lethal weapons industry is divided into impact, irritant chemicals, and intense sound/light. In Furthermore, based on end-user, the non-lethal weapons industry is divided into law enforcement and military. In 2017, The law enforcement segment accounted for the largest market share as these organizations mostly are ordered to restrain, subdue or incapacitate the threat rather than neutralizing.


Global Non-Lethal Weapons Market, By Segmentation: Non-Lethal Weapons Market


North America is estimated to account for the largest share during the review period. North America region in this report includes the US and Canada. Focus by the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) on developing less lethal weapons such as PHASR Rifle, in the recent years, have resulted in the market witnessing a significant surge in demand, in this region.
