The market for professional security equipment is unaffected by the crisis in Europe. In fact, certain segments, such as video surveillance and cybersecurity, are now in full swing. Update on a buoyant sector before the industry’s upcoming international trade fairs.
A growth rate of 2% in France. According to the figures given by the Atlas de la sécurité, global sales in this sector increased by 2.1% in 2014, which corresponds to €24.4 billion in volume. Some segments, such as electronic security (alarms, controlled access, video surveillance, remote surveillance), cybersecurity or surveillance drones, are particularly dynamic. According to Patric Haas, Editor-in-Chief of publications by French security agencies En toute sécurité and Atlas de la sécurité, annual growth in this last segment is expected to reach 50%, with sales going beyond the €200 million mark by 2020 in France.
Video surveillance booming. In 2014, the global market for video surveillance equipment increased by 12% compared with 2013, reaching $15.9 billion, according to a study conducted by IHS Technology. Despite today’s uncertain economic climate, the number of video protection system installations is constantly on the increase. In fact, video protection’s multiple uses make it all but unavoidable, whether for dissuading intrusion and theft, protecting goods and persons, providing proof in the event of a break-in, controlling access in sensitive areas, guarding against the threat of terrorist attacks, and so on.
