World Security Equipment

World Security Equipment

Growth in the world security equipment market will total 6.8% annually through 2018, reaching $126 billion. Gains will be fueled by urbanization and growth of the middle and upper classes in developing markets. Technological innovations and economic recovery will also provide opportunities in the US and Western Europe.

This report segments the world security equipment industry by product, market, and region. Data is provided in US dollars.

Security equipment products include:
Electronic Security Equipment -- Access Control & Video Surveillance; Alarms; Other Electronic Security
Mechanical Security Equipment -- Locks; Other Mechanical Security

Electronic equipment dominated in 2013 with 67% of the market. Growth for these higher-value products is expected to exceed that for mechanical equipment as economic conditions in key markets improve.

Major markets for security equipment include:
Commercial & Industrial
Government & Institutional
Residential

Commercial and industrial markets will continue to be the leading outlet for security equipment through 2018, accounting for 63% of demand. Faster gains are forecast for the commercial and industrial market and residential market due to a projected increase in residential construction and commercial activity.

Historical demand and forecasts for 14 countries in the following regions are covered in this report:
North America
Western Europe
Asia/Pacific
Central & South America
Eastern Europe
Africa/Mideast

Low penetration of security equipment and rapid urbanization and economic growth will allow double-digit gains in the China market. As a result, the Asia/Pacific region will see the strongest advances among world regions through 2018. Although the North America market will expand slower than the global average, growth will improve significantly over the 2008-2013 period.

The security equipment industry is comprised of a variety of companies, ranging from small, privately held firms that make a single type of product to large multinational corporations and state-held enterprises that offer a wide variety of security products and services. Producers discussed in this study include: Allegion, ASSA ABLOY, Bosch, Hanzhou Hikvision Digital Technology, Honeywell International, SAFRAN, Secom, Smiths Group, Spectrum Brands, Tyco International, and United Technologies.
