The prevailing uncertain economic circumstances, the complex political situation, and the deteriorating security condition across the globe have given rise to popular unrest and protests. Armed forces are increasingly called upon to do more of security and nation building missions and law enforcement officers are forced to deal with new kinds of threats and it is imperative that they are well equipped to handle the various future security scenarios. Armed forces increasingly operate in urban terrain where they fight enemies who are diffused among civilian population and law enforcement officers often have to deal with uncontrollable mob and transnational threats. These changes in the security situation have emphasized the need for non-lethal weapons which would act as an option between shout and shoot, that is, between verbal warning or psychological operation and using lethal force.

Non-lethal weapons are specially designed and employed to incapacitate an individual or a vehicle while reducing injury to personnel and damage to property and surrounding. They are broadly classified into counter-personnel and counter-material capabilities which are used for controlling crowds and for stopping vehicles respectively. They provide a flexible alternative to respond to the diverse challenge that a law enforcement officer or a war fighter faces. Some of the missions where they prove to be imperative are patrols, checkpoints, crowd control, convoys, and vessel stopping.

The use of non-lethal capability could substantially increase the effectiveness of the armed forces to handle escalating civilian upheaval and increase the engagement options of the law enforcement officer. Avoiding civilian casualties has become a very important criterion and it also strengthens the country’s own political cause apart from enhancing security options to deal with threats. Non-lethal weapons thus offer a wide range of capabilities for the conduct of war and in the support of homeland defense. The peace keeping operations of 1990s had previously triggered interest in spending on non-lethal weapons. The lessons learned from recent wars in Afghanistan and the prevailing unrest across the globe had led to an increase in demand for new and effective non-lethal capabilities which in turn has reflected in the need for increase in R&D cost.

The U.S. remains the largest market for non-lethal weapons and is undertaking numerous R&D programs to strengthen its capability in this sector. However, there is a global demand for such systems. Apart from the existing non-lethal weapons technology, a number of new capabilities are being developed mainly by the U.S. Few of the developmental projects are non-tethered munitions, sensor fused non-lethal munitions, distributed sound and light array, vehicle & vessel stopping devices, and multi-frequency radio-frequency vehicle stopper.

Since there seems to be a rapid interest in non-lethal weapons across the globe, many countries lack clarity in terms of requirement and training, and the doctrine needed for the armed services to induct such non-lethal capability, which is expected to act as a restraint to the market. The global non-lethal weapons market is estimated to be $5,235.36 million in 2014 and is expected to register a CAGR of 5.45% to reach $7,198.24 million by 2020.
