The global gunshot detection market was valued at $0.58 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $1.2 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 7.9% from 2022 to 2031.

The gunshot detection system market is a major market associated with the defense and civil sector. A typical gunshot detection system uses a series of acoustic sensors to detect and transmit the firing position of gunshots. These systems can be used by internal security agencies, law enforcement agencies, and the military to detect the shooting. The system can be installed in high-security buildings, strategic facilities, and other areas to accurately warn about potential enemy fires. In addition, the gunshot detection system uses acoustic detection technology to identify and report gunshots to the police within seconds of being fired. A gunshot detection system consists of a sensor that detects gunshots, a transmitter that sends a message to a police control center, and a computer that receives & displays the message.

Gunshot Detection Market

Growth of gunshot detection system is driven by factors such as surge in adoption of IoT, rise in incidences of shooting, and increase in utilization of gunshot detection systems are expected to propel the gunshot detection market growth. However, high costs associated with gunshot detection and incorporating sensors in devices incur extra value and reduce the life of the device. Moreover, security in new smart cities and rise in adoption of wearable gunshot detection devices in North America are anticipated to provide growth opportunities for the gunshot detection system market during the forecast period.

The gunshot detection system market is segmented on the basis of product, application, installation, system, and region. By product, it is bifurcated into indoor and outdoor.

Surge in adoption of IoT

People are moving toward automation-based solutions and services in the current IT-dominant world. This has led to increased focus on IoT-based devices due to their innovative and advanced applications. IoT is a technology for providing internet or internetworking for almost all applications such as smartphones, microwaves, wearable devices, and buildings. IoT uses electronic software, sensors, and actuators to connect all these things to a shared network. IoT incorporates several sensors such as touch sensor, proximity sensor, and temperature sensor. IoT-based devices help in machine-to-machine (M2M) communication and person-to-computer communication.

Gunshot Detection Market by Application

Rise in incidences of shooting

Gunshot incidents have increased in North American in the past several years, leading to increased demand for gunshot detection systems in the North American area. For instance, in June 2021, according to the Everytown Research organization’s report, between 2009 and 2020, a total of 1,363 people in the U.S. were killed and 97 others injured in 20 mass shootings, an average of 20 shootings per year. These numbers are staggering, as they represent only a fraction of the lives permanently changed after a mass shooting has shaken communities with fear and grief. Moreover, in 2021, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention organization reported that in 2020, 24,292 individuals committed suicide and gunshots murdered 19,384 individuals. Thus, the increase in number of incidents by gunshot is expected to drive the growth of the gunshot detection market during the forecast period.

Rise in utilization of gunshot detection systems

In the current scenario, the surge in demand for gunshot detection systems is due to their applications in law enforcement, security agencies, and defense forces. The system detects and analyses the data in real-time and provides it to the police agency. For instance, in June 2020, ShotSpotter, Inc. won a $2.5 million contract from the Sacramento City Council for gun detection technology. This will allow the Sacramento Police Department to continue detecting shootings in three undisclosed locations through 2025. In addition, in February 2022, the California city of Pasadena approved the use of the ShotSpotter system at various locations around the city to analyze sounds and pinpoint the exact location of gunshots. Hence, the increase in usage of these systems is expected to drive the growth of the gunshot detection market during the forecast period.

Gunshot Detection Market by Installation

High cost associated to gunshot detection system

Gunshot detection systems have high installation and integration cost. The system consists of multiple hardware components such as sensors, power sources, cameras, ethernet data cables, and each detector with power over ethernet (PoE) switches connecting the on-site server. Thus, the installation process demands high labor and material costs. Furthermore, configuration and connectivity issues are significant complications within the existing corporate networks. For instance, in January 2022, Houston City Council adopted gunshot detection technology in the city. The council said it can cost up to $95.000 per square mile. As a result, most cities are hindered by gunshot detection technology due to the requirement of huge investment. Therefore, these factors are projected to hamper the growth of the gunshot detection market during the forecast period.

Security in new smart cities

To improve security, future smart cities should use advanced technology. Gun detection is one of the technologies that has improved emergency preparedness services in the towns across the U.S. These systems provide forensic evidence to law enforcement and security companies to investigate shootings.

Analyst Review

The gunshot detection system market is expected to witness significant growth, owing to increase in focus on the development of smart cities and the surge in number of shooting incident. For instance, in November 2019, ShotSpotter, Inc. signed a three-year contract worth $4.27 million with Puerto Rico (unincorporated territory of the U.S.) to install gunshot detection system in the portions of the capital San Juan and neighboring municipalities of Trujillo Altos and Bayamon. The gunshot detection system uses optical and acoustic sensors to detect the direction and position of the shot. Gunshot detection systems are used in a variety of applications including security and defense. In offensive and defensive situations, such a system can help assess the position of an enemy and locate the enemy.

Moreover, the increase in adoption of these systems by various law enforcement agencies, especially in the North America, is anticipated to further enhance growth prospects. Further, electronic gunshot detection system and gunshot sound detection system technologies play an important role in improving civilian security services and are being adopted by various cities across the U.S., including Fresno, California, and Peoria, Illinois. For instance, in June 2021, Shooter Detection Systems signed a partnership contract with Singlewire Software, a U.S. based company for enhanced active shooter safety. The integration enables organizations using both systems to automatically broadcast emergency notification to those at risk through multiple means simultaneously.

To fulfill the changing demand scenarios, market participants are concentrating on product launches to offer a diverse range of products and meet new business opportunities. In addition, market participants are continuously focusing on contracts & partnership efforts to match changing end-user requirements and improve the growth of the gunshot detection system market.
