Global Stun Gun Market 2017-2021
About Stun Guns
Stun guns or conducted electrical weapons (CEWs) are used for incapacitating a potential suspect. Such weapons deliver electric shocks with the purpose of disrupting the muscle functions without causing substantial damage to the suspect who could be a threat to law and order. These stun guns are used to control violent situations involving civilians, as well as in scenarios where the use of lethal weapons is discouraged, or where policy limits employment of conventional force.

According to the report, ongoing civil unrest around the world is a major factor driving the growth of the market. In recent years, an increase in the number of conflicts across the world has significantly raised the demand for non-lethal weapons. Law enforcement personnel often use non-lethal weapons for controlling hostile civilians involved in riots in urban areas. For instance, in April 2015, the Maryland Police and the National Guard Troops of the US made use of non-lethal weapons during a riot in Baltimore, Maryland, US. Similarly, in November 2016, the police of Portland, Oregon, US used stuns guns along with rubber bullets and tear gas to control hostile demonstrators.
Further, the report states that there has been increasing backlash against the use of non-lethal weapons on civilians. Concerns have been raised to establish national mechanisms and review the legality and use of non-lethal weapons. Since medically the use of non-lethal weapons on people (amid new weapons being introduced) is not yet fully understood, concerns have been raised to examine these weapons from an ethical perspective. Civilian casualties during several riots and hostile agitations have raised serious concern over the use of lethal force in dispersing protesters. Use of pellet and stun guns has caused serious injuries to the protesting civilians in many countries in recent times. Also, in many occasions the use of less-lethal weapons have led to the deterioration of the situations.
