Market Overview

Physical security refers to protection of hardware, software, networks, and data from physical events and actions that could pose severe loss or damage to an institution, agency, or enterprise. This includes protection from natural disasters, fire, flood, theft, vandalism, burglary, and terrorism. All government and business operations face new and complicated security challenges across various operations. The two primary concerns of physical security include prevention and protection serving the security interests of people, equipment, and property. The need for securing critical infrastructure combined with real-time response systems has emerged as the major concern for governments and organizations.

The global physical security market is estimated to account for US$ 500.2 Mn in terms of value by the end of 2027.

Market Dynamics- Drivers

  1. Increasing security concerns and rising budget allocation for physical security are expected to drive growth the global physical security market during the forecast period

Governments in many countries are investing to develop the most sophisticated physical security and expand its use, in order to fight again street crime and terrorism. According to the U.S. National Security Agency, around 50 terrorist plots have been disrupted in the past few years by law enforcement agencies in the United States and other countries with the installation of surveillance technologies. Furthermore, according to the U.S. Department of State, the number of global terrorist activities reported in 2009 was 10,968 which increased to 11,641 in 2010. These factors have created a massive demand for physical security solutions and the trend is expected to continue in the near future. Thus, such factors are expected to drive growth of the global physical security market during the forecast period.

  1. Constant investment in infrastructure is expected to propel the global physical security market growth over the forecast period

The investment in global infrastructure has been on a rise in the recent past. Currently, there is a need to expand and replace existing infrastructure including global energy infrastructure and public sectors such as airports, roads, railways, and communication networks. Furthermore, major sports events held during the forecast period are expected to drive the demand for physical security products. The physical security market is expected to witness strong demand in the coming years on the grounds of the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics and the 2018 FIFA World Cup, both events being held in Russia. Therefore, such factors are expected to propel the global physical security market growth in the near future.

Statistics:

APAC held dominant position in the global physical security market in 2019, accounting for 35.5% share in terms of value, followed by North America, Europe, and RoW respectively.

Market Dynamics- Restraints

  1. Device interoperability issues related to physical security systems are expected to hamper the global physical security market growth over the forecast period

Device compatibility is major issues associated with physical security system installations. Systems and devices used in physical security provided by some vendors are not compatible with those provided by other vendors, which remains a major problem. However, organizations such as the Physical Security Interoperability Alliance (PSIA) and Open Network Video Interface Forum (ONVIF) have been attempting to develop specifications for the unification of solutions, in order to ensure that manufacturers and integrators in the physical security industry can develop easily administered and cost-effective solutions for the end users. Therefore, these factors are expected to hamper the global physical security market growth over the forecast period.

  1. Privacy concerns against installation of surveillance cameras are expected to restrain growth of the global physical security market during the forecast period

Although video surveillance is a critical part of the physical security, it is also vulnerable to privacy concerns. The degree of public surveillance has seen a high growth in recent years on account of threats from various terrorist activities. Although majority of people appreciate this move, a considerable segment also feels that this is violating their privacy and thus stand in opposition to public surveillance. Associations including the New York Civil Liberties Union and Electronic Privacy Information Center have taken a drive to gather support against public surveillance. Therefore, these factors are expected to restrain growth of the global physical security market in the near future.
