The 1st Report to Segment the Market into 122 Submarkets, Including 40 Technology and Vertical Sectors 14 years have passed since 9/11 and against the backdrop of doom and gloom predictions by some managers in the industry, Homeland Security Research Corporation analysts forecast a strong comeback of the markets, generating a solid 6% CAGR.

The bulk of this growth, however, will come from different markets, as the U.S. Homeland Security (HLS) & Public Safety markets are undergoing major shifts. Markets once dominated by the airport security and CIP are now moving to smart borders, safe cities and cybersecurity. New and maturing sensor and ICT technologies create new market niches and fresh business opportunities. 

The threats, hazards, trends, and other dynamics reflected in the drivers of change, suggest several prevailing strategic challenges that will transform and drive the U.S. homeland security & public safety market over the 2016-2022 period. These include the following:

  1. The terrorist threat is evolving and, while changing in shape, remains significant as attack planning and operations become more decentralized. The U.S. and its interests, particularly in the transportation sector, remain persistent targets.
  2. Growing cyber threats are significantly increasing risk to critical infrastructure and to the greater U.S. economy.
  3. Biological concerns, including bioterrorism, pandemics, foreign animal diseases and other agricultural concerns, endure as a top risk because of both potential likelihood and impacts.
  4. Transnational criminal organizations are increasing in strength and capability, driving risk in counterfeit goods, human trafficking, illicit drugs, and other illegal flows of people and goods.
  5. Natural hazards are becoming more costly to address, with increasingly variable consequences.
  6. Terror organizations (e.g., ISIS and state-sponsored terror groups) as well as 21st century criminals use and develop state-of-the-art attack technologies (e.g., cyber-warfare, encrypted communication, cyber-crime, chemical warfare agents, and GPS jammers).
  7. The recent crash of the Metrojet Flight 9268, which was likely brought down by an ISIS explosive device will lead to aviation security upgrades.
