The United Kingdom to Dominate the Europe Non-lethal Weapons Market
The United Kingdom currently has the highest market share in the non-lethal weapons market. This is mainly due to the development of new less-lethal weapons that are efficient and less harmful in subduing the threat. The UK Army developed a new non-lethal weapon called Variable Kinetic System (VKS), to help soldiers in Afghanistan irritate and deter potential adversaries. The weapon fires paintball-like projectiles filled with a hot pepper solution. Moreover, the majority of law enforcement and police officers carry less-lethal weapons, like Tasers, batons, and canisters of mace spray that are less harmful when compared to traditional firearms. The Non-Lethal Weapons market in the United Kingdom will continue to grow as the number of assaults on police officers in the country is increasing, prompting the government to strengthen the police. 140,228 full-time equivalent (FTE) officers were in the post as of 31 March 2022 in the 43 territorial police forces in England and Wales. this was an increase of 4% on March 2021 (up 4,927 FTEs from 135,301 officers), excluding transfers, 12,789 new police officers (FTE) joined the 43 territorial police forces in England and Wales in the year ending March 2022, an increase of 662 (or 5.5%) on the previous year.
