The global less lethal ammunition market size is expected to reach USD 1.21 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 4.3%, according to a new report by Grand View Research Inc. The rapidly rising incidences of political disputes and civil disorder are expected to drive the demand for less lethal ammunition from law enforcement agencies across the globe.
Based on the sub-munition concept the top players in the industry have developed highly impactful irritant devices that release loads of irritant sub-munitions from a single projectile. Thus, they assure quick and effective dispersion of irritants without causing any severe injuries. In addition, they do not exhibit the risk of being thrown back like traditional tear gas canisters.
In March 2018, at Enforce Tac, Rheinmetall AG launched an extensive range of pyrotechnic products with high precision, reliability, and safe to handle. The product-line included multi-bang grenades and enhanced performance flash-bang grenades with bottom-top venting technology that leads the explosion away from hand and fingers.
Key industry participants are focusing on developing a comprehensive portfolio with right less-lethal ammunition for every scenario, with effects and ranges varying according to tactical requirements of different user groups including military or police. Moreover, they have developed ammunition that offers high reliability and precision in all climates.
