Riot Control Equipment Market Analysis
The Riot Control Equipment Market size is estimated at USD 7.52 billion in 2024, and is expected to reach USD 9.25 billion by 2029, growing at a CAGR of 4.24% during the forecast period (2024-2029).
- Although the COVID-19 pandemic affected the economy of countries in most of the regions, sales of riot control equipment were not largely affected during and after 2020. In fact, countries witnessed several protests and riots in the same year and later, resulting in law enforcement agencies using riot-control equipment to handle the crowds. The increased mass demonstrations, street riots, insurgency, and protests over the last decade have exposed security loopholes in North American and Europe countries. Investments in advanced riot control equipment have increased in recent years, driven by the government's focus on bridging the gaps between the requirement and the existing supply. Hence the market is witnessing several procurement and development activities related to the latest riot control equipment. This is expected to drive the market's growth in the coming years.
- Restrictions on the use of offensive riot control equipment by the governments and objections raised by human rights organizations have acted as a barrier to full-scale adoption of some of the equipment. Furthermore, it was observed that the lack of proper training on the use of the equipment has resulted in serious injuries in some countries over the years.
- The future riot control equipment may leverage the advancements in technology and will see the replacement of traditional equipment with technologically advanced equipment that can effectively overcome the challenges faced by the current systems. Significant work on electroshock weapons, directed energy weapons, and composite and lightweight defensive equipment are underway, which is expected to offer several growth opportunities to the market players in the future.
