Brazil continues to be the strongest country, economically, in the Latin American (LatAm) market.1 The continued growth of the country’s economy has led to an increased interest in infrastructure creation as a way of driving the country’s GDP forward and enhancing the lives of the population. This in turn has increased the security opportunities available to system and technology providers in the country. Spending related to the Olympics and World Cup has driven security spending and it is set to continue in the near future.2 Investments have been made in mass transport systems, with money being spent on both roads and airports to increase their efficiency, security, and capacity. City infrastructure has also been improved, with insights being made into more effective urban planning and citizen safety.
However, Brazil is still experiencing large-scale social instability rooted in monetary and social inequality, which is particularly rife in the most urbanised areas of the country. The 2013 riots in Sao Paulo, Brasilia, and Rio de Janeiro highlighted the social instability caused by a lack of spending on social projects and the high cost of hosting international sporting events. The country is also still experiencing high levels of violent crime and corruption rooted in the relative strength that organised crime gangs and drug cartels hold in the country. This instability and threat from organised crime demands an appropriate response from the government in the form of security infrastructure investment in both, the nation’s cities and rural areas.
About this report
Brazil finds itself in a period of great internal transition. As one of the world’s growing economic powers with an enhanced presence in the international community, the future of development within Brazil is being keenly followed. Opportunities for security suppliers will be enhanced, as the government continues to focus on infrastructure creation, addressing issues of public security. Frost & Sullivan anticipates that the market for security technologies across a wide range of critical national infrastructure segments will continue to grow as the country continues this internal development. This study examines the 2014 market within Brazil for security suppliers, future market trends, and possible routes to market strategies.
