Increasing competition among the global population for limited resources, government apathy, and unequal social development are seeing an increase in recent years, often resulting in riots. Owing to this, riot control vehicles are seeing increased demand and use against violent protestors without resorting to potential fatal measures. In addition, the constant releases of new protective features, improved riot control weaponry and high performance engines and armor are expected to create new opportunities for manufacturers.
Civil Unrest Created from Disproportionate Development Creates Demand
Law enforcement and military bodies are always on the lookout for riot control systems that make use non-lethal technology to groups of rioting people, by generating stimulus to pain or extreme discomfort to the target without resulting in any kind of permanent damage.
In different parts of the globe, paramilitary, law-enforcement, and military forces are showing their want for advanced riot control systems owing to incidences of terrorism and civilian discontent. Rising incidences of corruption and dictatorial rule by governments such as acts of bribery and unconstitutional activities are creating conditions which lead to violent protests, thereby boosting demand for riot control vehicles.
Also disproportionate development between rural and urban areas is resulting in rise of people moving from rural to urban areas to achieve a better life, and this is creating problems that the existing security infrastructure is unable to cope with. The enhancements in crowd control technologies in riot control vehicles and super strong armor materials create demand in the riot control vehicle market, especially during modernization drives by governments.
Advanced Tech Functions to Stay Key Focus for Manufacturers
Intense competition between the top riot control manufacturers such as Lampered Less Lethal, Katmerciler, Jino Motors, Streit Group, Carmor Integrated Vehicle Solutions, Alpine Armoring, INKAS Group of Companies, Hobson Industries, and Condor Non-Lethal Technologies, is growing stronger and is focused largely on technological improvements to gain an edge in the market.
Alpine Armoring Company for instance has also developed riot control trucks using the chassis from Ford’s F-750 vehicles. The riot control vehicle features blast seats with advanced harnesses, thermal cameras, hydraulic platforms for sniping, along with barrier removal systems to ease managing riot control situations in urban areas.
The new range of Bozena riot control vehicles comprises three major components including a three ton movable shield, a carrier and trailer for water storage. It can also be fitted with 2 water cannons at the front and rear of the vehicle, along with a high performance tear gas gun. For controlling the vehicle, the driver can make use of user-friendly control panel, as well as all round surveillance camera systems for complete visibility. The vehicle also has modules that can be customized according to weapons that launch rubber projectiles, while keeping the shooters in the vehicle safe and shielded.
Kalashnikov has similarly developed a range of tactical armored vehicles that are designed for can help law enforcement during riots in both rural and urban areas, through the use of rubber tracks for the wheels in non-road conditions. These vehicles have improved protection from ballistic projectiles, a semi-automated control room, and purpose specific modules for easy installation of various weaponized systems including lethal and non-lethal riot control weapons.
