The global smoke grenade market is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 6.65% during the period 2016-2020.
According to the report, increased riots and protests in urban areas will be a key driver for market growth. Ongoing civil unrest and regional conflicts around the world are a major factor driving the market growth. This increase in the number of conflicts across the world has significantly raised the demand for non-lethal weapons.
Law enforcement personnel often use smoke grenades and tear gas to disperse and control hostile civilians involved in riots in urban areas. In April 2015, the Maryland State Police and the National Guard troops of the US made use of smoke grenades and pepper balls in a riot control situation in Baltimore, Maryland, US. Law enforcement personnel also used similar smoke canisters in Albuquerque, New Mexico, US, in July 2016 as a measure to disperse rioting crowds.
Further, the report states that although the use of smoke grenades is not restricted to military and defense personnel, there are certain guidelines that civilians are required to adhere to while using smoke grenades. However, in recent times, many incidents have taken place that pose a challenge to the commercial smoke grenade industry.
In June 2016, two juveniles were charged for igniting smoke grenades in the cafeteria of a high school during lunch time in Whitby, Ontario, Canada. As per the police investigation, it was revealed that at the time of the setting off of the smoke grenades, the cafeteria was filled with students and staff members, and could have resulted in serious injuries. Police identified those smoke grenades as the ones commonly used in the game of paintball.
