LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global stun gun market report. This research report also lists four other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.
Over the last couple of decades, the use of non-lethal weapons has been on the rise, due to concern over undesired fatalities from the use of lethal weapons. Along with other types of non-lethal weapons, like pellet guns, rubber bullets, and smoke grenades, the use of stun guns or CEW has been gaining acceptance among law enforcement agencies, riot control forces, and correction centers.
Competitive vendor landscape
The primary users of stun guns are law enforcement agencies and special forces who are shifting their focus from quantity to quality of impact. There is also an increased emphasis on the use of next-generation stun guns that are less hazardous to the health of the targets. Simultaneously, cost-efficiency remains as one of the major challenges that vendors may face during the production.
“Maintaining a balance between cost and quality while providing adequate supply to address the requirement of the modern law enforcement agencies can be a significant challenge for the vendors. Therefore, vendors are required to ensure multidirectional raw material supply networks to avoid cost overrun and a shortage of raw materials,” says Moutushi Saha, a lead defense analyst from Technavio.
Similarly, the manufacturers of commercially available stun gun are also required to adhere to certain standards, both in the production and marketing. The increase in the use of commercially available stun guns has also raised concern among law-enforcement agencies.
