Technavio has released a new market research report on the global riot control system market, which is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5% between 2016 and 2020. The agencies involved in riot control operations use less lethal weapons such as whips and batons. The demand for non-lethal weapons (NWLs) and small drones is significantly increasing due to the rising conflicts across the world. The Americas dominate the global riot control systems market, where the law enforcement agencies in the US and Canada are best equipped with the upgraded weapons.

The new industry research report from Technavio discusses in detail the key drivers and trends responsible for the growth of this market and its sub-segments.

“Since there are just a few companies in this industry, companies are entering into mergers to increase their market share and establish a larger geographical presence. Vendors are investing funds in bringing new products like rubber bullets, tear gas and directed energy weapons (these can stop vehicles) to manage rioting crowds. These products are designed to help not just police departments but peacekeeping personnel to keep the peace and manage troublesome situations,” says Abhay Singh, Lead Analyst, Aerospace & Defense, Technavio Research

Law enforcement agencies around the world are the biggest market for riot control systems. This market is expected to generate revenues of over USD 3.5 billion by the end of 2020. Countries such as the US, Iran, Egypt, Russia, China, and Thailand have started procuring riot control equipment and are investing heavily in NWLs. Moreover, special vehicles that are equipped with water cannon and reservoirs have been designed for security personnel, for use in areas of conflict to handle large crowds and demonstration. Demand for such equipment is expected to rise during the next few years.

The key players in the global riot control system market are Combined Systems, Condor Non-Lethal Technologies, Dae-Kwang Chemical, Lampered Less Lethal, and NonLethal Technologies. This market is a highly regulated one, and weapons have to undergo rigorous testing before they get certified for use. All of the vendors work closely with law enforcement departments and federal bodies to manufacture products based on set guidelines. The market has a number of diversified vendors. The competition will intensify with more innovations, product extensions and mergers and acquisitions.  Vendors have to compete on the basis of distinction in products and services while offering upgrades to stay relevant.
