According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Manned security services is a highly competitive sector. The growth in the requirement for manned security services in Europe has led to a proliferation in the number of security service providing companies operating in the region. Manned security services are labor intensive and are governed by a number of parameters such as training of guards, working hours, and wages given to the manned guards. The development of overall infrastructure in the region has led to the growth of manned security services market. This has given rise to a number of private security services companies in Europe.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Standard methodologies giving rise to security breaches. In manned security services, a standard operating procedure is followed by the guards on a daily basis. Manned guards go through rigorous training to learn the proper security procedures that they have to follow. The guards perform designated operations in required situations, and these procedures do not change for any shift. On account of a scheduled routine followed by manned guards, security breaches by intruders and security lapses are highly possible, which may increase the threat to infrastructure facilities. In large facilities, such as industrial facilities, retail facilities, or hospitals, it is physically taxing for manned guards to survey every area for security loopholes. In addition, as the attrition rate in manned security services is high, the existing security guards are often replaced by new ones. This frequent change in security results in a breach of security, as the new manned guards require time to understand the security needs of a certain area.
