Disruptive Trends Impacting the Global Security Market, 2019
The progressive digitalisation of the security eco system is substantially impacting security missions and traditional operating processes. Worldwide, security end-users are exploring and adopting new digital tools to tackle existing and upcoming threats in a more cost efficient way. Frost & Sullivan has identified four different trends disrupting security operations as game changers to augment mission success and multiply forces capabilities on terrain.
It is the combination of new technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence, Augmented Reality, and new recipients such as wearable devices and unmanned systems that makes it very promising to security forces. Frost & Sullivan study explores how wearable devices empowered by the Augmented Reality function can increase security mission success rates and develop new uses cases. In the field of artificial intelligence, the report covers how predictive analytics and machine learning solutions can provide a better situation awareness and better responsiveness in real time situations and tackle new threats. Additionally, the growing adoption of unmanned systems, boosted by connectivity and machine learning, slowly dictates new concept of missions and engagements in public safety and critical infrastructures protection.
The digital transformation of security is also bringing new business models aligned with the growing adoption of cloud solutions. With no exception the security ecosystem is increasingly adopting new products under the Software as a Service format to facilitate the implementation of new digital tools with more budget flexibility and less upfront capital investments. Frost & Sullivan is exploring how these new business models are disrupting as well the security markets and what it entails for both security companies and end-users.
The report includes for each trend a complete section with new technology targeted applications, relevant use cases, technology barriers, trends impacting market adoption, growth opportunities and key technology providers.
Whilst security end-users are still in the early stages of the adoption cycle, especially in Western regions, technology maturation is still required. The next generation of connectivity being brought by the 5G is expected to speed up deployment and remove traditional technical hurdles. Nevertheless, resistance to change, the lack of security layout and the higher reliance on third party providers are others non-negotiable parameters that significantly slow down market adoption.
