Militarization of police forces by providing them with more arms and weapons is also one of the major drivers. For example, there is an increase in the rate of police militarization in the US, under the program ‘Urban shield’ fueled by the money from Department of Homeland Security. In the US, the Department of Defense is also authorized to donate surplus military equipment to the police.

The police are also authorized to purchase weapons for counter-drug actions, homeland security, and emergency response activities. Similarly, the EU has established a multinational police force, the EGF, with military status, which performs police tasks with the scope of crisis management operations. The EGF consists of more than 3,000 militarized police from member countries such as France, Portugal, Netherlands, Italy, Romania, and Spain, and can be deployed in any of the EU member nations.

Armies across the world conduct mock drills at regular intervals. Mock drills prepare the armed forces for conflict scenarios. For mock drill purposes, many non-lethal weapons such as the guns that fire pellets, pepper guns and non-lethal grenades are used. In conflict regions such as Kashmir (India), military forces and the state police largely use non-lethal weapons during mock drills. They learn ways to control protestors without collateral damage.

The global non-lethal weapons market is a highly fragmented market due to the presence of a large number of established manufacturers, small-sized vendors, and medium-sized vendors. The competitive environment in this market is likely to intensify, during the forecast period, with the increase in product extensions, technological innovations, and increase in the number of mergers and acquisitions.

It is expected that international players may grow organically during the forecast period by acquiring smaller players. Established companies are acquiring smaller companies that have a weak financial position and a low market share. Such acquisitions are helping major companies increase their market shares and their geographical presence. It is also helping them enhance their product portfolio. For instance, The Safariland Group acquired the explosive ordnance disposal and crew survivability businesses of Allen-Vanguard Corp., the leader in customized solutions for defeating terrorist and extremist threats.
