LONDON, April 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Report Details
Following events in Ferguson, Missouri in August 2014, and Hong Kong in September, many commentators have focused upon the way in which law enforcement entities have seemingly become more militarised in recent years, utilising heavy vehicles, assault weapons, and advanced aircraft to deal with civil disturbances and public activism. This has specifically been the case in the United States, where as a benefit of the Department of Defense's 1003 program many departments have been able to acquire armoured vehicles fresh from the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan. However, more generally the momentum of the market is away from lethal technologies towards the kind of services and surveillance capabilities that enable departments to perform more effectively and efficiently with limited resources. So far this has entailed the development of city-wide surveillance programs with accompanying data-analytics, although there is further room for advancement as innovation progresses and rules and laws on the use of unmanned aerial systems are relaxed. This, combined with the increasing use of non-lethal weapon systems, even in countries usually invested in lethal-force systems, is entailing a progression of the law enforcement equipment market away from the traditional sectors of vehicles, firearms, and personal protection, and into new areas of fresh opportunity.
The momentum towards non-lethal weapons and greater surveillance is currently picking up speed in both Europe and North America, where Police Departments have come under intense scrutiny over both the level of force they are using and the way in which it is employed. As of present this is not a trend that is being replicated to the same extent in other areas such as Africa and Asia, as nations there generally remain dedicated to upgrading their existing lethal capabilities, and are committed to investing in new aircraft and vehicles. However, with the advent of so called 'safe cities', both in the East and the West, law enforcement entities are progressing to a much higher standard of operation, whereby adequate intelligence and information management capabilities are just as important as heavily armoured vehicles, and more powerful firearms. Accordingly, future growth in several submarkets is likely to be governed by a nations' ability to integrate each of its systems into a more coherent whole. With police numbers and funding still declining across most Western countries, it is likely that the main thrust of this will take place in countries like the U.S. in U.K., where police will be forced to utilise fewer resources in a more effective fashion.
