Physical security involves security measures that are primarily used to prevent unauthorized access to facilities. There has been a significant increase in terrorist attacks on government organizations, enterprises, and critical infrastructures in recent years.
As a result, companies and governments are implementing robust physical security strategies. Industries, such as government & public sector, transport & logistics, IT & telecom, and BFSI, are some of the key areas that have been considering investments for physical security systems solutions to ensure enhanced security. The growth of physical security worldwide is primarily driven by the increasing demand from the Asia-Pacific region (especially from India and China). The increase in incidences of crime and terror, along with continued investments in infrastructure across the region, is expected to drive the future growth of the global physical security market. North America continues to be the largest investor in physical security; however, the Asia-Pacific region is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period of 2015 to 2020. The market in Middle East & Africa is also expected to witness significant growth during the given period.
