Increasing political disputes and civil unrest drives the global non-lethal weapons market

Political disputes, violence, and civil unrest have been on the rise globally, in the recent years, driven by domestic as well as geopolitical situations and policies. The adverse geopolitical conditions in Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and East Asia have contributed highly to this global trend. Sub-Saharan Africa is home to 16 high to severe risk countries, barring a few others, driven by the increasing political violence and insurgency in the region. In terms of concentration of risk of political violence and civil unrest, the major affected regions have been identified to be the Middle East, South Asia, and North Africa. Rising political violence, terrorism, insurgency, and civil unrest in the Middle East is expected to render the region the highest growing in the market for non-lethal weapons in the coming years. The intensification of political violence in Iraq, Yemen, Syria, and Saudi Arabia can be regarded as one of the major factors for this trend. Some of the key conflicts or instances of conflict/civil unrest in the Middle East have been represented below:
