Gunshot Detection System Market Revenue Graph



  • Terrorism threat increases

  • Rising application area


  •  Gunshot detection system has High installation cost in cities

  • These systems are costly because they necessitate the installation of a large number of spatially distributed sensors over a vast area. The upkeep of these systems is an added cost.


  • Gunshot detection systems are becoming increasingly important in smart cities.

  • Gunshot detectors use digital microphones put on buildings and streets to record gunshot evidence, offer near-instantaneous warning, and triangulate the location of shooters and the direction of a shot.


  • The aviation industry is facing economic issues as a result of COVID-19.

  • New installations for GDS systems have been badly impacted and are experiencing a slowdown.


The outbreak of COVID-19 has led to significant economic challenges in the detection industry in both the commercial and military sectors. The military sector has seen a reduction in government spending on equipment, while the introduction of a firearms identification system for new projects and the addition of new miles to existing projects has been significantly reduced.

The commercialization of the GDS is the most affected compared to military applications. There have been extensive travel restrictions, affecting the suspension of all project management activities and the implementation of GDS programs. New installations of GDS systems have been severely affected and are subject to decline. New areas added i.e the addition of new miles under existing contracts and new GDS installation contracts has dropped significantly. COVID19 and restrictions such as roadblocks and restrictions imposed by it, regional authorities of various municipalities and governments have significantly reduced customer engagement which has affected Q2 profits for most GDS commercial suppliers. There is expected to be a slight decrease in the implementation of the commercial GDS, and these conditions will apply until the end of 2020.

During the forecast period, the commercial market share of the gun acquisition program is estimated to grow rapidly. The need for greater security in future smart cities is driving the market for gun acquisition programs. Large-scale deployments of gunshot detection systems have occurred in cities across North America and parts of Europe in the previous three to five years. Gunshot detection systems are installed on armoured vehicles, soldier wearable, border crossings, and military facilities in buildings and bases, among other places. Defense systems are designed to pinpoint the source of a gunshot and provide information for counter-offensive plans. the static portion is expected to grow at the highest CAGR at the time of forecasting. The global market is dominated by the automotive component and the market size of GDS programs in automotive applications will grow with the increasing demand for armed vehicles from military countries.

Due to the presence of numerous sensor manufacturers and accompanying software providers, the market for gunshot detection systems is slightly fragmented. ACOEM Group, Shot Spotter Inc., Raytheon Technologies Corporation, Rheinmetall AG, and Thales Group are some of the key participants in the gunshot detection systems industry. Raytheon Technologies Corporation is a major provider of gunfire detection systems to the United States military, whereas Shot Spotter Inc. is a prominent distributor of gunshot detection systems to the civilian sector. Shot Spotter develops and sells licence civilian versions of Raytheon's gunshot detecting systems. In addition, the companies are working on new and sophisticated gunshot detection systems that can identify rounds fired at cheaper costs and with greater efficiency.

The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
