Market Overview

The gunshot detection systems market was valued at about USD 650 million in 2020, and it is projected to reach USD 1,041 million by 2026, registering a CAGR of approximately 8.2% during the forecast period (2021-2026).

The COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on the gunshot detection systems market is relatively low as the procurement plans of law enforcement agencies and military forces to introduce gunshot detection systems have remained on track.

Increasing incidences of gun firing, especially on school premises, have led to the installation of various security measures, such as warning people in close proximity and alerting authorities regarding the location of the shooting. This is expected to drive the demand for gunshot detection systems during the forecast period.

The growing investments in border security are also likely to drive the market growth in the coming years, as these systems can help border security forces detect and avert any attempts of smuggling, infiltration, and illegal immigration. Moreover, with a little modification to the system, it may be possible for manufacturers to help forces identify perpetrators and detect illegal entries even in the absence of gunshots.

Various law enforcement agencies are currently deploying various tactics to curb the increased incidents related to mass shootings, which may further open new market opportunities for advanced gunfire detection technologies.

The integration of advanced technologies like artificial intelligence will combine visual and acoustic information to effectively sense and track threats. Such developments are anticipated to propel the growth of the market in the coming years.

Scope of the Report

A gunshot detection system is a system that detects and conveys the location of gunfire or any other weapon fire with the help of acoustic, optical, or any other type of sensors, as well as a combination of these sensors.

Key Market Trends

The Outdoor Segment is Anticipated to Generate the Highest Growth During the Forecast Period

The outdoor segment is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period due to increasing demand for gunshot detection systems at the national borders, national highways, and public areas. Deaths related to firearms have been increasing in countries of Latin America, North America, and Europe, due to which the requirement for gunshot detection systems is also expected to witness subsequent growth to monitor and apprehend the threats. According to ShotSpotter’s data, the overall retail area shootings witnessed an increase of more than 40% in 2020 compared to the previous year in areas with ShotSpotter coverage. Furthermore, with the increasing gun violence around the world, companies are introducing new strategies to expand their presence in the market. For instance, in March 2021, ShotSpotter launched the ShotSpotter SiteSecure for Retail program to deliver outdoor gunfire detection to retail chains and malls. The rapid growth in gun violence is anticipated to accelerate the growth of the segment during the forecast period.

North America Held the Highest Share by Revenue in 2020

The North American region currently dominates the market and is anticipated to continue its dominance in the market in the coming years. The demand for gunshot detectors in the region is mainly due to the increasing gun violence in the United States. The United States has been witnessing an increase in gun violence over the past few years due to which the law enforcement authorities have installed gunshot detection systems. For instance, in November 2020, the Detroit Police Department received the approval to install an acoustic gunshot detection system from ShotSpotter that will enhance their surveillance capabilities and alert the department in case of gunshots in the city. Under a four-year contract of USD 1.5 million, the sensors are expected to be installed in two neighborhoods of the city that span six and a half square miles. The US armed forces are installing gunshot detecting sensors at the borders and its camps in the Middle Eastern and Central Asian regions. In this regard, Raytheon announced that the company has completed the integration of the Boomerang Warrior-X Dismounted Soldier Gunshot Detection System with the Android Team Awareness Kit (ATAK) into its tactical operations centers (TOCs) that will allow them to track and pinpoint incoming small arms enemy fire in real-time. Such installations are anticipated to drive the growth of the market.

Competitive Landscape

The market for gunshot detection systems is slightly fragmented due to the presence of many sensor manufacturers and related software providers. Some of the prominent players in the gunshot detection systems market are ACOEM Group, ShotSpotter Inc., Raytheon Technologies Corporation, Rheinmetall AG, and Thales Group. Raytheon Technologies Corporation is one of the key providers of gunshot detection systems to the US armed forces, whereas ShotSpotter Inc. is the major provider of gunshot detection systems to the civilian market. ShotSpotter manufactures and delivers licensed civilian versions of Raytheon’s gunshot detection systems. In addition to this, the companies are also developing new and advanced gunshot detection systems that can effectively detect the shots fired at lower costs and higher efficiency. For instance, in June 2021, Shooter Detection Systems, in partnership with Singlewire Software, developed the Guardian Indoor Active Shooter Detection System to enhance public safety using advanced acoustic detection software combined with infrared sensors to accurately detect gunshots while filtering false alerts. Developments of such advanced detection systems are anticipated to expand the presence of the players in the new and emerging markets.

Recent Developments

In December 2020, ASELSAN announced that the company signed a contract with an undisclosed international customer worth approximately USD 38 million for the delivery of inertial navigation systems, anti-tank missile launch systems, command and control systems, and firing point detection systems. According to the agreement, the company will deliver Seda Gunshot Detection System to its customer, and the delivery of the defense systems is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2021.

In March 2020, Safe Zone unveiled its next-generation Gunfire Detection System at ISC West 2020. The new gunshot detection systems are embedded with a tri-mode data capture system and report the local law enforcement agencies automatically. The systems will alert local authorities with information such as the number of shots fired, the type of weapon, and a map tracking the shooter’s location.
