The global physical security equipment market will hit revenue of $64bn by 2022-end, putting it on course for an impressive CAGR of 10% between 2017 and 2022.
That’s according to new research from Future Market Insights (FMI), which picks out the emergence of thermal cameras as a major driver of growth. As these cameras are water & heat resistant, and use infrared radiation for taking images, they have become an indispensable part of physical security equipment in monitoring unique/large-scale outdoor environments.
In addition, the report says several institutions and critical infrastructures are being offered grants by governments for purchasing efficient surveillance equipment. The requirement for sophisticated security systems that help in ensuring safety of data has led the organisations to adopt data analytics, along with cloud-based data storage.
FMI states that the nature of the global physical security equipment market is highly fragmented, with presence of various large- as well as small-scale vendors competing for gaining larger market share. These vendors are concentrating on providing innovative and highly-efficient security solutions coupled with customized security services for sustaining their presence in the market. In addition, they are also providing integrated security systems, which ensure optimum security. Global leaders in the market are adopting key strategies such as M&A, and are acquiring niche players, in a bid to enhance their product portfolio.
The report says it has become ‘pivotal’ for different institutions around the world to adopt physical security equipment on the back of surging threats related to physical damage and attacks. Various organisations from end-use sectors including transportation, commercial, utilities & energy retail, residential, government, manufacturing, education, healthcare and BFSI are adopting physical security equipment for safeguarding their property as well as personnel.
Moreover, the elevation in threats pertaining to terrorism across the globe has led the organisations and governments to spend more on latest and highly advanced security solutions, for ensuring safety of physical sites and people working there. Increasing incidences of espionage and thefts, particularly in banking sector and commercial buildings, are further driving adoption of physical security equipment worldwide.
