Burglar Alarm Market Scope:
The burglar alarm market is estimated to register a CAGR of over 6.26% to reach USD 7.43 Billion by the end of 2030

A burglar alarm is a type of standard equipment, which is used in home security systems. It is also used to present home security networks in residential and commercial activities. The various factors attributing to the growth of the global burglar alarm market are attractive insurance policies for installing security systems and the growing popularity of smart homes. Furthermore, rising adoption in developed countries and adopting connected, automated, & electrified surveillance systems will create opportunities for market players during the forecast period.

By system & hardware, the global burglar alarm market has been segmented into remote terminal units, alarm sensors, and central monitoring receivers. By system & hardware, the alarm sensors segment holds the largest market share; and is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. By end user, the global burglar alarm market is divided into small and medium enterprises and residential. the residential segment is the most significant contributor to the burglar alarm market and is expected to register a higher CAGR from 2021 to 2027. The regions included in the study are North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the rest of the world. North America is the dominant segment in terms of market share, while Asia-Pacific is expected to exhibit the highest growth rate during the forecast period.

The burglar alarm system market is driven by factors including rising concerns regarding safety & security, attractive insurance policies for installing these security systems, and the increasing popularity of smart homes. Despite living in a supposedly safe neighborhood, the risk of burglary is ever looming. However, on average, installing monitored safety and security devices for homes can reduce the homeowner’s insurance premium up to 20%. According to an FBI report published in 2020, a burglary occurs approximately every 15 seconds in the US. Homes without security systems are over three times more likely to be burglarized than homes having security systems. The growing popularity of smart homes has positively impacted the growth of the burglar alarms market. These systems are essential and play a vital role in safety and security, controlling entertainment systems, multimedia, lighting, and temperature, as well as thermostats.

The smart home device market has been growing considerably in recent years. The market comes inclusive of a vast range of products. Once the customers plan to incorporate products such as lighting controllers at their homes, they will come across promising technologies related to the in-built connectivity of data. Consumers can integrate the automated systems with the help of wired and wireless technologies.

However, installation of burglar alarms is expensive and has complex operations as it features a large number of software and hardware such as sensors, video cameras, and other accessories that are used for analyzing security and surveillance. The operational cost of burglar alarm systems depends on various factors, such as the incorporation of advanced technologies and camera type.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The global pandemic has resulted in adversely affecting the growth of the global smart home market share. During the first fiscal year, post the COVID-19 era, the sales are expected to experience a decline of approximately 5–10%. The major economies such as China and the US have considerable disruptions in their supply chains. There is a reduction in the construction-related projects and temporary shutting down of many manufacturing units because of COVID-19. However, as restrictions are easing across the globe and people are returning to work, the demand for smart homes and security solutions is likely to slowly increase.

With the continuous spread of the novel coronavirus across the world, equipment manufacturers are taking extreme measures in the form of plant closures to halt the spread of COVID-19. The situation remains uncertain as more European companies suspend work activities, and companies in the US and APAC extended shutdown periods. The technology company’s plans on North American production are an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19; however, the region was one of the worst affected, with upwards of 300 thousand deaths daily at the peak of the pandemic. In the US and Canada, the response of governments has been a combination of state or provincial, federal, and local measures.

Supply Chain Analysis

All countries across the globe are trying to make a fine balance between protecting health, minimizing economic and social disruption, and respecting human rights. The growing spread of novel coronavirus leads to disruptions in the markets. Restrictions to shipping and industrial production are affecting multiple supply chains.

Distribution of components is the key process in manufacturing industries, which faces challenges such as staffing of warehouses, a need for direct distribution, and more intelligent and responsive allocation across channels due to the pandemic, creating pressure on supply chains. The impact on the US and Europe from the disruptions will be significant, which will have a notable effect on the global economy and badly disrupt supply chains.
