Market Scenario

Advanced technologies, such as detection & surveillance systems, advanced communication systems, personal protective equipment, and weapons assist police officers to combat criminal activity. Advance detection and surveillance systems are one of the essential components of criminal justice practice. They use detection and surveillance technologies to monitor and handle crime scenes and to keep public areas safe. While personal protective equipment such as body armor and less-lethal weapons also increase the safety of both police and the public.
However, in a progressively high-tech world, more and more crimes involve technologies. Therefore police have to be prepared for them. Body armor is one of the vital safety equipment that law enforcement officers need for personal protection. It protects against bullet penetrations and the blunt trauma associated with bullet impacts. Less-lethal weapons include equipment that protects law enforcement officers and the public by reducing the possibility of injury or death.
Miniature unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) offers unique advantages to law enforcement that can save time and resources. They are often crucial tools in volatile situations, such as searching for missing persons or surveying a hostage scene. Furthermore, they can also be used for fire investigations, traffic investigations, and tactical operations. The rising demand for non-lethal weapons from law enforcement agencies to ensure public safety is one of the factors driving market growth. Similarly, increased adoption of body-worn cameras due to its perceived benefits, including, improved evidence documentation, augmented accountability, and transparency is another factor. Furthermore, growing need for police and public safety and rising demand for helicopters and UAVs in law enforcement are also considered for the growth of this market. However, stringent regulations related to the law enforcement equipment and barriers in the adoption of new technologies are some of the significant challenges for the growth of this market.

Segmentation of the Global Police and Law Enforcement Equipment Market

By product type, the market has been segmented into weapon systems, detection and surveillance systems, communication systems, and personal protective equipment (PPE). The weapon system is one of the most significant segments of the market. Whereas PPE segment is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period, because of increasing demand from the law enforcement agencies for safeguarding the personal safety of officers.
By weapon type, the market has been segregated into lethal and non-lethal weapons. The lethal weapons segment holds the most significant shares of the market owing to extensive utilization of lethal weapons as this is primary law enforcement equipment. While the non-lethal segment is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period, the highest growth of this segment is attributed to the reduced risk of injury or death that can be occurred due to lethal weapons. Therefore the demand for non-lethal weapons has increased to ensure public safety.
Police and law enforcement equipment market in North America is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period. The growth in this region is attributed to the massive demand for the police and law enforcement equipment by different armed forces, police, and law enforcement agencies. Additionally, the US is one of the major manufacturers and suppliers of law enforcement equipment and systems. Furthermore, considering the increasing demand for police and law enforcement equipment in the other regions such as Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Middle East and Africa.
