Riot control system is used to manage or disperse a violent crowd. The systems consists of both defensive and offensive equipment. The defence equipment such as riot shields, body armour, and others are used for the protection of the personnel. Equipment such as tear gas, water cannon, irritants, etc. are used to disperse a crowd.

Key Market Insights:

The market is driven by the growing civil unrest and political disputes in different countries. Another factor positively impacting the market is regional violence. Increase in such incidents, setting up of new production sites, and the export of the system to different countries, are all factors contributing towards growth of the market.

Riot control system consists of protective gear for the personnel using it, such as riot shield, headgear, body armour. The weapons used to control the crowd can be of various type, such as rubber bullets, tear as, water cannon, and laser. Chemical weapons used cause irritation and burning on the skins, as they are designed to affect the human skin whenever there is a contact with the re-agent. Mechanical weapons are capable of major harm to the body, as they are projected at high speeds towards the crowd. Electromagnetic wepaons are used to disperse the crowd from a far enough range, where the law enforcement or military personnel are safe.

The U.K., in 2019, agreed to lease riot shield licences to the U.S. in a deal worth USD 758,000. These shields were used by the U.S. to control the riots during the later part of 2020, when the country faced huge civil unrest.

A big restraint for the growth of the market is the outcry for the non-humanitarian method in which some of the equipment works, such as Active Denial. These weapons are deemed to powerful for use on unarmed civilians, due to their capability to effect discomfort at a high level.
