Riot Control System Market Size Worth $15.30 Billion By 2032 | CAGR: 4.54 %

The global riot control system market size is expected to reach USD 15.30 billion by 2032, according to a new study by Polaris Market Research. The report “Riot Control System Market Share, Size, Trends, Industry Analysis Report, By Product (Defensive Weapons, and Offensive Weapons); By Technology; By End-User; By Region; Segment Forecast, 2023- 2032” gives a detailed insight into current market dynamics and provides analysis on future market growth.

The market is anticipated to be driven by rising defense spending in emerging nations and continued riot control system research and development. According to the Ministry of Defense, The overall expenditure outlined in the Union Budget for the Fiscal Year 2023–24 is Rs. 45,03,097 crore. Of this, Rs 5,93,537.64 crore, or 13.18% of the overall budget, has been allotted to the Ministry of Defence. This includes Rs. 1,38,205 crore for military retirement benefits. The overall defense budget is up Rs 68,371.49 crore (13%) from the budget for 2022–2023. To promote research and development in the defense sector, the DRDO has received a 9% increase in funding, totaling Rs 23,264 crore in BE 2023–24.

Additionally, the industry is anticipated to grow in the approaching years as a result of rising communal violence and protests around the world as well as the widespread use of technologically improved weaponry and security measures. Police and security personnel can employ the drone technology that the Border Security Force (BSF) developed in September 2022 to suppress rioting and attackers by dropping tear gas shells from above.  Police can now launch the gas shells from a drone or unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) owing to a device created by the BSF's tear smoke unit (TSU), known as the 'Drone Tear Smoke Launcher'.  Therefore, because these emerging nation investment initiatives are helping manufacturers create riot control systems and governments are supporting the adoption of security measures to defend against violence, the market is expected to grow at a faster rate than anticipated over the coming years.

Further, another significant growth-inducing aspect is the increasing demand for effective public management solutions. In September 2019, A riot control system was created by a scientist at the Indian Institute of Scientific Education and Research (IISER) that assist the security personnel in both dispersing and identifying protesters. The new device, known as the Indigenous Non-firearm Shock and Awe system (INSAS), also surprise the participants, prompting them to leave the protest area. Thus, authorities can keep crowds under control and avoid riots and other disruptive actions owing to riot control technology.
