Regional Analysis

The US is the single largest market for non-lethal weapons. The law enforcement bodies largely use non-lethal weapons to control violent crimes in the country. US has the highest ratio of civil ownership of guns in the world with an estimate of 90 guns per 100 residents. The rules and regulations permitting the ownership of guns by civilians are quite convenient in the US, along with the low denial rate for obtaining the license. This has also led to high incidents of violent crimes.

Brazil, Canada, Mexico, and Argentina are the other major exporters and importers of non-lethal in the Americas, whereas other countries such as Colombia, Peru, Venezuela, and Chile are the major importers. Brazil is also the second largest producer of non-lethal weapons in the Americas after the US. Along with the rise in violence, non-lethal weapons production has also increased in Brazil.
