Physical Security Market Overview

The physical security market is expected to grow at USD 120 Billion by 2022, at 10% of CAGR between 2016 and 2022. With most of its segments performing well, the segment by the system is expected to hold a majority share. In the global scenario, North America currently leads the physical security market but it is expected that the Asia Pacific is soon going to take over.

The Physical security market is one of the high potential markets that has been experiencing major growth in the recent past. With the growth of Internet-based services and the advancement in technology, the outlook for the physical security market has changed. The physical security industry trends include the controlling, surveillance, and testing of any possible threats, attacks, environmental disasters, etc. with the use of physical security systems and solutions.

The need for physical security devices has been on an upward verge due to the ever-increasing possibilities of theft attacks, housebreaks, robberies, criminal trespassing, due to the negative use of advanced technology and to counter such physical threats the physical security services are gaining importance.

The physical security industry has been providing services to various organizations by protecting their hardware, software, data, personnel, and other operations from any kind of third party attacks such as terrorism, robberies, thefts, fire, and other disasters by using various kinds of physical security systems such as security guards, physical surveillance, CCTV’s, protective barriers, etc. to ensure not only staff safety and well-being but also the customers’ welfare.

COVID 19 Analysis:

The novel coronavirus or the Covid 19 pandemic has negatively impacted the physical security markets since the nationwide lockdowns and restrictions have reduced the chances of terrorist attacks or any other forms of mishappenings. Due to the lockdowns in various countries, the demand for various physical security devices has been diminishing, and due to which the supply and production of various raw materials and finished products have been disrupted.

The impact of covid 19 can be easily seen in a way that most of the big players have to shut down their main production units and are also forced to lay off employees. However, it is expected that the physical security market will certainly pick up growth as soon as the lockdown restrictions are removed and people can move freely. It is expected that the post-lockdown period would be a great success for the physical security market revenue to prevent invasion, criminal offenses, and burglary. The segment by the system is expected to provide maximum returns with more investments being made by the public for security purposes.



The physical security market has been on a growing run due to the increasing trends in the global market towards safety. The rising number of reported cases involving terrorist attacks, cyber-attacks, thefts, consumer vandalism, etc have initiated the demand for physical security systems.

The need for physical security solutions has grown not only in organizations or at public places but the major demand has significantly increased in private institutions, homes, private rooms, etc. as the probability of being struck off by such unknown attacks has become very common in various regions such as The North American region.


Though the physical security market has been continuously guided by an upward-moving force, there have been some barriers that have time and again hampered the growth of the commercial security market which need to be kept in mind so as to gain maximum results.

One such negative factor affecting the market for such devices in a negative way is the lack of privacy or the renouncement of privacy by the users of such devices since there have been concerns on how the video is used and who are the viewers of the videos. In various countries, it is necessary to take permission or licenses from the Government to use such videos privately. However, each country guarantees the right to privacy as a basic right to its citizens, it is difficult to completely rule out such a right in the case of the physical security market systems.

Technology Analysis:

The physical security market has been rapidly focusing on technological advancements with new innovations in terms of physical security devices that have continuously emerged to bring about improvements in the physical security industry.

Some such technological advancements include the use of locks and keys with password-protected configurations, alarms, sirens, etc. to counter an emergency attack.
