Non-lethal weapons are primarily designed to incapacitate human beings to avoid fatalities. These weapons are deployed for various purposes such as riot situations, limitation of civilian access to restricted areas, combat situations, self-defense, and others. Non-lethal weapons are known as less-lethal weapons, less-than lethal weapons, and pain inducing weapons. Non-lethal weapons include explosives, gases & sprays, directed energy weapons, conducted energy weapons. Non-lethal weapons are primarily used by military organizations, law enforcement agencies, and civilians for self-protection.
The adoption of non-lethal weapons has increased due to rising number of civil unrest situations, upsurge in budgetary expenses for military applications, increased awareness about benefits associated with less-lethal self-defense weapons, introduction of advanced & innovative technologies, and others. However, rise in the number of instances of non-lethal weapons causing casualties to humans in the recent years have restricted the growth of the non-lethal weapons industry. Moreover, stringent and varied weapon laws and opposition from human rights associations are some of the factors restricting the non-lethal weapons market growth. Moreover, upsurge in research and development initiatives, untapped developing markets, and increased funding by government organizations to launch advanced non-lethal weapons are expected to provide lucrative opportunities for the non-lethal weapons industry.
The world non-lethal weapons market is segmented on the basis of type, technology, application, and geography. The products covered in the report include explosives, gases & sprays, directed energy weapons, and conducted energy weapons. Based on the technology used by these weapons, the non-lethal weapons market is categorized into chemical non-lethal weapons, acoustic non-lethal weapons, electromagnetic non-lethal weapons, and mechanical non-lethal weapons.
