Global Non-Lethal Weapons Market by End User (Law Enforcement and Military & Defense), by Product
Type (Direct Contact Weapons and Directed Energy Weapons), by Technology (Electromagnetic,
Mechanical, and Chemicals) and by Geography - Forecast To 2021
Non-lethal weapons are used by both the military and the law enforcement forces. Unlike lethal weapons, that can cause
casualties, the non-lethal weapons are used to reduce the fatalities to a large extent. These weapons are specifically
designed to cause temporary harm or injury to a person. Non-lethal weapons are mainly used for crowd dispersion,
controlling civil wars, and controlling illegal protests against governments.
Non-lethal have become the weapon of choice for state police forces in many parts of the world where they do not have
permit to use lethal weapons on civilians. One of the reasons for this is also the easy availability of non-lethal weapons.
They are available legally for the state's use. There are thousands of companies in approximately 100 countries producing
small arms and non-lethal weapons. The Small Arms industry has become globalized, with most of the small arms, including
non-lethal weapons now being produced in different countries.
Militarization of police forces by providing them with more arms and weapons is also one of the major drivers. For example,
there is an increase in the rate of police militarization in the US, under the program ‘Urban shield’ fuelled by the money
from Department of Homeland Security. In the US, the Department of Defense is also authorized to donate surplus military
equipment to the police. The police are also authorized to purchase weapons for counter-drug actions, homeland security,
and emergency response activities. Similarly, the EU has established a multinational police force, the EGF, with military
status, which performs police tasks with the scope of crisis management operations. The EGF consists of more than 3,000
militarized police from member countries such as France, Portugal, Netherlands, Italy, Romania, and Spain, and can be
deployed in any of the EU member nations.

Non Lethal Weapons Market – Competitive Analysis
The global non-lethal weapons market is a highly fragmented market due to the presence of a large number of established
manufacturers, small-sized vendors, and medium-sized vendors. The competitive environment in this market is likely to
intensify, during the forecast period, with the increase in product extensions, technological innovations, and increase in the
number of mergers and acquisitions. It is expected that international players may grow organically during the forecast
period by acquiring smaller players.
Established companies are acquiring smaller companies that have a weak financial position and a low market share. Such
acquisitions are helping major companies increase their market shares and their geographical presence. It is also helping
them enhance their product portfolio. For instance, The Safariland Group acquired the explosive ordnance disposal and
crew survivability businesses of Allen-Vanguard Corp., the leader in customized solutions for defeating terrorist and
extremist threats.

Non Lethal Weapons Market – Regional Analysis
The US is the single largest market for non-lethal weapons. The law enforcement bodies largely use non-lethal weapons to
control violent crimes in the country. US has the highest ratio of civil ownership of guns in the world with an estimate of 90
guns per 100 residents. The rules and regulations permitting the ownership of guns by civilians are quite convenient in the
US, along with the low denial rate for obtaining the license. This has also led to high incidents of violent crimes.
Brazil, Canada, Mexico, and Argentina are the other major exporters and importers of non-lethal in the Americas, whereas
other countries such as Colombia, Peru, Venezuela, and Chile are the major importers. Brazil is also the second largest
producer of non-lethal weapons in the Americas after the US. Along with the rise in violence, non-lethal weapons
production has also increased in Brazil. Many of the other South American countries are also struggling with border
tensions as well as internal civil unrest. Thus, both military and defense, and law enforcement bodies possess non-lethal
weapons in the region.
In the recent years, the Asian countries have been prone to extremist and insurgent threats as well as territorial disputes.
China, Japan, India, and South Korea, the three major technological hubs of the Asia-Pacific region, have increased their
military expenses significantly, and have procured a number of advanced non-lethal weapons. The other countries of the
region, such as India, Australia, and Singapore are not lagging behind, as they have increased their military exports, over the
Europe is currently facing a challenging security situation on many fronts. The economic and political crisis in European
countries such as Portugal, Greece, Ireland, Cyprus, and Ukraine and violence in the Middle East and North African
countries display multiple challenges for the respective countries. Also, the growing influx of illegal immigrants from
countries such as Syria, Iraq, and Libya into the European countries is escalating the risk of internal instability. These
challenges fuel the demand for non-lethal weapons in this region. With the deployment of such advanced systems by the
European Union (EU) and other government bodies, the European countries such as France, Germany, Russia, Turkey, and
the UK would have greater control over these turbulent and unrest situations.
