  • Rising Political Conflicts and Civil Unrest

  • Law Enforcement Agencies' Militarization


  • Defense Budgets of Advanced Economies are Falling

  • Environmental and governmental regulations are strict.


  • Rising Defense Expenditures in Emerging Markets


  • Less lethal weapon trafficking and indiscriminate use


The Covid-19 epidemic had an impact on the demand and availability of riot control equipment. Lockdown around the world, supply chain disruptions, and fluctuating raw material supplies prompted firms to shut down output, resulting in an undesirable fall in market growth. The introduction of vaccines to combat the Covid-19 pandemic is likely to boost market growth throughout the forecast period.

Riot control equipment is unique gear worn by Special Forces and law police during a riot. Body armour, a face visor, a riot helmet, a riot shield, and a gas mask are all worn by Special Forces and law enforcement officers. Riot police use non-lethal weapons like pepper spray, tear gas, and water cannons.

The market is divided into two categories: defensive weapons and offensive weapons. The section Offensive Weapons is predicted to have the biggest market share. The growth of microwave-based weaponry and laser technologies such as pain ray weapons and active denial systems can be ascribed to the factors.

The market is divided into two segments based on application: law enforcement and military. During the estimated period, the Law Enforcement category is expected to have the greatest CAGR. The variables can be linked to an increase in civil wars, conflicts, and political violence around the world.

The law enforcement sector segment is estimated to lead the global market in terms of revenue over the forecast period, owing to increasing adoption of safety devices with sophisticated technology in law enforcement and increased investment in this area, which is a factor driving global market expansion.

Rising civil unrest and political tensions are important factors driving the worldwide riot control system market. Growing regional violence is another aspect driving worldwide market expansion. Upgrading the law enforcement and defence industries is also expected to help the target market expand. In addition, the militarization of law enforcement organizations is projected to drive growth in the worldwide riot control system market in the near future.

Government regulations and environmental concerns about the use of chemical riot control systems, on the other hand, could stifle expansion in the global riot control system market. Furthermore, defence budget cuts in wealthy countries are a tough aspect that is projected to hinder global market growth. Nonetheless, R&D operations for the development of more efficient non-lethal weaponry have the potential to provide profitable prospects for the leading players in the worldwide riot control systems market.

14. Conclusion

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. 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.

Primary Research

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.

Data Bank Validation

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.
