Growing Research and Development Activities Helps in Expansion of Policing Technologies Market

Policing technologies can be defined as numerous technological and scientific techniques, equipment, and methods utilized in various policing activities. In recent few years, the advancement in technology has changed the way of working of many sectors. Thus, there are several technologies specifically intended for the purpose of policing activities and focused on crime prevention and arrest of criminals.

Policing technologies are widely adopted in various developed nations across the globe owing to many advantages they offer. Some of the key advantages of policing technologies include their ability to help in improving responsiveness, reducing fatalities, and limiting crimes. Less lethal technologies, communication technologies, detection and surveillance technology, and aviation technology are some of the popular products available in the global policing technologies market.

In recent few years, there is remarkable growth in crimes and terrorist attacks in all worldwide locations. As a result, the police departments in many developed nations are growing use of advanced technologies to perform a range of policing activities. This factor is working as a key driver for the growth of the global policing technologies market.

The global policing technologies market experiences presence of many well-entrenched players. To maintain the leading position in this scenario, major players in the market for policing technologies are strategizing their business moves. Many enterprises in the market are growing investment in research and development activities. The main motive of this strategy include new product development as well as upgrading the existing products.

The recent COVID-19 pandemic has impacted negatively on the growth of almost all industrial sectors including policing technologies market. To restrict the spread of coronavirus disease, the government authorities of many countries from all across the globe have employed stringent regulations related to the national and international travelling. This aside, the government bodies are growing their investments toward the discovery of new vaccines for coronavirus. As a result, the other government sectors might experience shortage of funding intended for incorporation of advanced technologies. On the back of this reason, the global policing technologies market is likely to experience decreased sales in the years to come.

Technology has been an integral part of police departments and has shaped it in many important ways. Advancements in technology have created enormous potential for enhancing police work. Often technologies have been adapted from the commercial marketplace as in the case of radios, cars, and computers among others. Crime control can be strengthened by using technology, for example, enhancing the ability of the police in identifying and monitoring offenders and also facilitate in identifying the places and conditions that can contribute disproportionately to crime. Enhancement in technology has also resulted in improving evidence collection, speeding up of the detection process, and also response to crimes. Furthermore, technological advancements pertaining to weapons, protective gear, and surveillance capabilities has reduced fatalities and deaths of officers, bystanders, and suspects drastically. The policing technologies market on the basis of type has been segmented into five segments; aviation technology, communication technology, detection and surveillance technology, less lethal technology and others.

The policing technologies market in Europe is primarily driven by factors such as increase in terrorist attacks coupled with increasing crime rates. Europe has been a victim of several terrorist attacks in recent years which have positively impacted the policing technologies market in the region. There has been increasing demand to make law enforcement departments more efficient in order to counter the terrorist attacks. Moreover, there has been an increase in crime rate across various countries in Europe. Issues such as drug related crimes are on the rise and countries such as Greece have been a victim of the same. For example, Omonoia Square in Greece has been an epicenter for drug-related activities.

However, lack of proper training is one of the major restraints hindering the growth of the policing technologies market. The rapid growth in technology has resulted in an overwhelming number of products, services, and requirements which further results in additional staff training. The incorporation of new technology into police work also requires the need to thoroughly test, develop policy, investigate, and train. There are varied complexities associated with the adoption and use of various new policing technologies as a result of which there is often a long time gap in the adoption of these technologies. Police agencies need extensive training to become familiar with latest technologies such as facial recognition software, DNA testing, driverless cars, and gunshot locating detection systems among others.
