DUBLIN, Jan 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Non-Lethal Weapon Market 2017-2021" report to their offering.
The global non-lethal weapon market to grow at a CAGR of 5.88% during the period 2017-2021.
The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is emergence of advanced non-lethal laser weapons. Most of the countries' defense strategies significantly rely on their advanced weapons, communication, and surveillance systems. Therefore, the introduction of advanced weapons is an essential element in the current and future military operational plans.
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is emphasis on adoption of non-lethal weapons. Military personnel, police, and law enforcement agencies use various equipment including lethal and non-lethal weapons in their missions. Non-lethal weapon systems are mostly used in operations for controlling civilians, maintaining peace and order within urban regions, and conducting humanitarian missions in the third-world countries. These weapons temporarily harm the person and are often used in combat situations where lethal force cannot be applied.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is challenges in usage of non-lethal weapons. There has been increasing backlash against the use of non-lethal weapons on civilians. Concerns are being raised and governments are starting to establish national measures and review the legality and the use of non-lethal weapons in the wake of emerging weapon technologies. Since medically the use of non-lethal weapons on people (particularly new weapons) is not yet fully understood, these weapons require examination from an ethical perspective. Several riots and hostile agitations have also raised serious concerns over the use of conventional approaches in dispersing protesters.
