The Infrastructure Secutity Market will reach a Value of $32.55BN in 2022
The infrastructure security market has rapidly developed over the past decade, with the formation of a host of governmental and international organisations dedicated to homeland security (HLS) and critical infrastructure protection. The major threats to infrastructure are not expected to diminish, whilst the construction of infrastructure itself will expand significantly during the forecast period. Our analysis has indicated that the global infrastructure security market, in terms of government spending, will reach a value of $32.55bn in 2022.
This report considers infrastructure security in terms of government spending directed towards protecting the physical integrity of a nation’s vital assets from terrorist attack, criminal damage and theft, alongside environmental destruction. Infrastructure included in the report includes rail & bus networks, utilities, power stations, energy infrastructure and major events such as the Olympic Games.
Whilst in some of these cases funding for cyber security seems paramount, this protection has little utility by itself unless the physical integrity of the infrastructure is also appropriately safeguarded. Investment and innovation will continue in equipment and services such as IP surveillance cameras, sensor systems, perimeter fencing and biometric access control.
There will be an increase in integration of systems and the provision of end-to-end systems. Furthermore, advances in miniaturisation of technology and reductions in unit cost will permit existing solutions to be made more applicable to a wider array of security environments.
National infrastructure markets in North America and major European countries will remain leading national markets in the infrastructure security market over the forecast period 2012-2022. Although we do not expect significant growth as a consequence of continued recession and fiscal austerity, infrastructure protection will continue to be prioritised as part of security spending. Growth within Asian infrastructure security markets such as China and India, alongside the Middle East, is forecast by this research to be very strong, driven by high economic reliance on vital infrastructure, pressing internal security concerns, and expansion of oil & gas fields. In the longer term, the market will take an ever more global complexion, with higher growth levels in Latin America, Africa and Central Asia.
