Pepper sprays, also known as oleoresin capsicum (OC) sprays, refer to lachrymatory agents that contain capsaicin, an inflammatory compound that causes a burning sensation, extreme pain, tears, and even temporary blindness when it comes into contact with a person’s eyes. They work by inflaming the mucous membranes in the eyes, lungs, nose, and throat, leading to immediate closure of the eyes, runny nose, coughing, and difficulty in breathing. As a result, pepper sprays are extensively used by civilians for self-defense and by law enforcement agents for policing, crowd control and riot control. Nowadays, they are widely available in fogger, stream, gel and foam variants in aerosol and spray bottles in the market.

Pepper Sprays Market Trends:
The increasing usage of pepper sprays to incapacitate attackers and for protection against animals like bears represents the primary factor driving the market growth. Besides this, the rising cases of eve-teasing, crimes against women, riots and protests are catalyzing the demand for pepper sprays. Additionally, pepper sprays are lightweight, compact and effective, making them easy to carry and use. This, in confluence with the growing consumer interest in outdoor activities, such as hunting, camping and hiking, is accelerating the product adoption rate. Furthermore, the leading players are heavily investing in research and development (R&D) activities to expand their product portfolio and gain a competitive edge. For instance, they are launching smaller products that are easy to manage and carry on the go. Other factors, including the rising awareness regarding self-defense, easy product availability via online and offline retail channels, favorable government policies, and inflating consumer disposable incomes, are also creating a positive market outlook.
