Urban Warfare Influences Demand for Non-Lethal Weapons

Urban warfare is a challenge that countries – both developed and developing – are trying to effectively contend with. Civil unrest and anti-terrorism operations have necessitated the reliance on non-lethal weapons as they help manage the task at hand effectively while reducing collateral damage.

The global non-lethal weapons market can be segmented on the basis of product type, technology, application, and geography. The product segment is sub-segmented into directed energy weapons, conducted energy weapons, sprays and gases, explosives, and water weapons. As of 2014, the explosives segment accounted for the highest share of the revenue, contributing over 30% to the overall non-lethal weapons market. However, emerging trends in warfare tactics point toward a growing demand for directed energy weapons. It is thus expected that this segment will report healthy growth in the coming years.

Likewise, sub-segments that can be created within the technology segment of the global non-lethal weapons market are: Mechanical and kinetic, acoustic, chemical, electromagnetic, and others. Analysts note that the electromagnetic, acoustic, and chemicals segments are poised to report a healthy CAGR through the next six years.

The applications segment can also be split into law enforcement agencies, military, and civilians. Law enforcement agencies are expected to lead in the usage of non-lethal weapons – this application segment will exhibit a CAGR of 6.1% from 2015 to 2021.
