DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 2, 2019--The “North America Riot Control Equipment Market - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2019 - 2024)” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The North American riot control equipment market is anticipated to register a CAGR of over 4% during the forecast period.

Increase in armed violence and racial tension in the United States acted as a major propellant for the growth of the North American riot control equipment market. Rising homeland security budget of the United States further pushed the growth of the market studied.

Key Market Trends

Law Enforcement Agencies are the Biggest Consumers of Riot Control Equipment

Law enforcement agencies hold a major share and account for more than 75% of the North American riot control equipment market. The total number of full-time law enforcement personnel across the United States amounts to more than 1.2 million, representing a massive market for riot control equipment in the country.

The law enforcement agencies have had to face intense criticism for using unwarranted deadly force against civilians in the past. Owing to the rising concerns about public safety and pressure from civilians, law enforcement agencies have been actively started adopting the use of non-lethal weapons in the United States and Canada.

The US Market is Driven by the Purchase of Directed Energy Weapons

The United States and Canada are relatively similar in terms of per-capita usage of riot control equipment, as the law enforcement and other agencies of both nations are the best equipped in the world. Similar factors affect both the markets and the products available in the Canadian market are similar to the US market. However, the scale of usage in both countries is vast, as the United States is far ahead in terms of the number of agencies at work.

The United States is the biggest market for riot control equipment in the world. The market in the United States is expected to experience a steady growth rate, driven mainly by the purchase of directed energy weapons, which is expected to see maximum growth among riot control equipment.

Competitive Landscape

The North American riot control equipment market is concentrated and has few major players that dominate. Major players, such as Axon, Condor Non-Lethal, and Combined Systems, have focused their revenues on R&D to come up with advanced technologies. This strategy will assist in the production of premium quality equipment and gear for effective crowd control strategy.

In order to survive and succeed in this highly competitive market, companies are striving to provide the best products and services, in order to meet the needs of today’s changing environment. Few companies are also offering state-of-the-art training facilities focused on law enforcement officers, along with a wide product portfolio.
