Based on end user, the law enforcement segment of the less lethal ammunition market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, due to the increase in investments in less lethal ammunition such as rubber bullets and beanbag bullets. These ammunitions are widely used by law enforcement agencies of various countries to control emergency situations.
Based on weapon type, the shotguns segment is estimated to lead the less lethal ammunition market in 2018. The growth of shotguns can be attributed to the increased procurement of 12 gauge by law enforcement agencies and civilians for security operations and self-defense.
