The US economic downturn has had an adverse effect on the 2009-2010 private sector* homeland security (HLS) market, but despite the capital investment aversion trend, the US private sector demonstrates a strong demand for HLS related products and services. There is a trend towards upgrading of outdated security infrastructure, including cyber security, chemical & HAZMAT industry security, smart grid security, perimeter security, biometric ID, IT systems and workforce & visitors screening systems. Over the next five years, the US private sector HLS market is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 7.7% from $8.6 billion in 2011 to $12.4 billion by 2016.
